We need to ensure that there are no pending MSI IRQ vector set (i.e
PCIE_MSI_INTR0_STATUS reads 0 at least once) before exiting
dra7xx_pcie_msi_irq_handler(). Else, the dra7xx PCIe wrapper will not
register new MSI IRQs even though PCIE_MSI_INTR0_STATUS shows IRQs are
pending. Therefore, keep calling dra7xx_pcie_msi_irq_handler() until it
returns IRQ_NONE, which suggests that PCIE_MSI_INTR0_STATUS is 0.

This fixes a bug, where PCIe wifi cards with 4 DMA queues like Intel
8260 used to throw following error and stall during ping/iperf3 tests.

[   97.776310] iwlwifi 0000:01:00.0: Queue 9 stuck for 2500 ms.

I am not merging any code patching this IRQ handling routine anymore
unless you thoroughly explain to me how this CONF_IRQSTATUS_MSI register
works (and how it is related to DW registers) and why this specific host
controller needs handling that is not required by any other host
controller relying on dw_handle_msi_irq().

I suspect there is a code design flaw with the way this host handles
IRQs and we are going to find it and fix it the way it should, not with
any plaster like this patch.

Unlike other DW PCIe controllers, TI implementation has a wrapper on top
of DW core. This wrapper latches the DW core level MSI and legacy
interrupts and then propagates it to GIC.
PCIECTRL_DRA7XX_CONF_IRQSTATUS_MSI register is present in this TI
wrapper which aggregates all the MSI IRQs(PCIE_MSI_INTR0_STATUS) of DW
level. They are mapped on the MSI interrupt line of PCIe controller,
using a single status bit in the PCIECTRL_TI_CONF_IRQSTATUS_MSI register.

So, the irq handler, dra7xx_pcie_msi_irq_handler(), first needs to look
at PCIECTRL_DRA7XX_CONF_IRQSTATUS_MSI[4] to know that its MSI IRQ and
then call dw_handle_msi_irq() to handle individual MSI vectors.
Driver has to make sure there are no pending vectors in DW core MSI
status register before exiting handler. Otherwise next MSI IRQ will not
be latched by the wrapper.

I agree there has been some churn wrt this wrapper level IRQ handler.
But, that was because hardware documentation/TRM did not match
actual behavior and so it took some time to understand how the
hardware is working. I have extensively tested this series on multiple
problematic PCIe USB cards and PCIe WiFi cards over week long stress
tests. And also had some agreement with internal hardware designers.
Hardware documentations will also be updated.

Did above explanation clarify CONF_IRQSTATUS_MSI register usage and the
need for IRQ handler? Are you okay with this fix?

Hi Vignesh,

How can it make *sure* ? And what makes the wrapper latch MSI IRQs
again ?

I am sorry but I do not understand how this works - what is the
condition that makes wrapper latch IRQs again ? This is at least
racy, if not outright broken.

That count == 1000 is a symptom there is something broken on how this
driver handles IRQs and I have the impression that we are applying
plasters on top of plasters to make it less broken than it actually is.

How does HW work :) ? Please explain in detail how this works in HW
then we will get to the code.

This is the sequence that I got from discussion with internal HW team:
 1. read CONF_IRQSTATUS_MSI in wrapper and check if MSI bit
 2. clear CONF_IRQSTATUS_MSI
 3. read, clear and handle PCIE_MSI_INTR0_STATUS vectors
 4. repeat step 3 until PCIE_MSI_INTR0_STATUS reads 0

If read of PCIE_MSI_INTR0_STATUS returns 0 at least once, then its
guaranteed that the next time any vector is set in PCIE_MSI_INTR0_STATUS
register(due to MSI IRQ), wrapper will latch it and raise an IRQ to CPU.

It is an upper bound on how many times driver looks at
PCIE_MSI_INTR0_STATUS register, so that there is no infinite looping
when there is an IRQ flood due to misbehaving EP. count == 1000
condition should not happen and it means something is wrong in the
system.  I haven't hit this situation in testing
I can either remove this or put a WARN_ON to say this situation should
not have happened, if that makes you more comfortable with the patch.

Software needs to ensure that PCIE_MSI_INTR0_STATUS needs be 0 by
reading it. Then, when the next MSI IRQ is raised  CONF_IRQSTATUS_MSI
register in the wrapper will latch the next IRQ.

This is my current knowledge, let me know if you need to know anything
specifically, I will try to ask HW team.

Hi Vignesh,

thank you for explaining. To me - this looks like it is better to write
a separate IRQ chip implementation for DRA7XX, let's face it this patch
is a bit hackish (and will prevent us from removing dw_handle_msi_irq()
altogether - which is something we want to achieve) and it is clutching
at straws to re-use DWC MSI code but honestly it is a bit of stretch.

This would duplicate some code, yes but on the other hand it would
give you full control of the (DWC) HW.

You can have a look at pcie-tango.c or the mobiveil patches I have
just reviewed:

https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/878494/

Please note Gustavo's reworked DWC MSI handling that is now queued
for v4.17 in my pci/dwc-msi branch - please do have a look at it
too (and if Gustavo has comments they are welcome).

I do not like the current implementation - sorry, we have to come
up with something cleaner, I do not think that's so complicated.

I do not mind reviewing intermediate patches as long as we get to
a cleaner solution.

Thanks,
Lorenzo
