Commit Message

Vasundhara Volam May 23, 2020, 6:08 a.m. UTC
Add a new "allow_fw_live_reset" generic device bool parameter. When
parameter is set, user is allowed to reset the firmware in real time.

This parameter is employed to communicate user consent or dissent for
the live reset to happen. A separate command triggers the actual live
reset.

v2: Rename param name to "allow_fw_live_reset" from
"enable_hot_fw_reset".
Update documentation for the param in devlink-params.rst file.

This does not tell me anything about the reset being done on another
host. You need to emhasize that, in the name of the param too.

I am not sure if I completely understand your query.

Reset is actually initiated by one of the PF/host of the device, which
resets the entire same device.

Reset is not initiated by any other remote device/host.

Well, in case of multihost system, it might be, right?

In case of multi-host system also, it is one of the host that triggers
the reset, which resets the entire same device. I don't think this is
remote.

As the parameter is a device parameter, it is applicable to the entire
device. When a user initiates the reset from any of the host in case
of multi-host and any of the PF in case of stand-alone or smartNIC
device, the entire device goes for a reset.

I will be expanding the description to the following to make it more clear.

------------------------
- Firmware live reset allows users to reset the firmware in real time.
For example, after firmware upgrade, this feature can immediately
reset to run the new firmware without reloading the driver or
rebooting the system.
When a user initiates the reset from any of the host (in case of
multi-host system) / PF (in case of stand-alone or smartNIC device),
the entire device goes for a reset when the parameter is enabled.

Sorry, this is still not clear. I think that you are mixing up two
different things:
1) option of devlink reload to indicate that user is interested in "live
   reset" of firmware without reloading driver
2) devlink param that would indicate "I am okay if someone else (not by
   my devlink instance) resets my firmware".

Could you please split?

This is the option we are trying to add. If a user is interested in
"live reset", he needs to enable the parameter to enable it in device
capabilities, which is achieved by permanent configuration mode. When
capability is enabled in the device, new firmware which is aware will
allocate the resources and exposes the capability to host drivers.

But firmware allows the "live reset" only when all the loaded drivers
are aware of/supports the capability. For example, if any of the host
is loaded with an old driver, "live reset" is not allowed until the
driver is upgraded or unloaded. or if the host driver turns it off,
then also "live reset" is not allowed.

In case of runtime parameter cmode, if any of the host turns off the
capability in the host driver, "live reset" is not allowed until the
driver is unloaded or the user enables it again.

To make it clear, I can add two parameters.

1. enable_fw_live_reset - To indicate that the user is interested in
"live reset". This will be a generic param.

2. allow_fw_live_reset - To indicate, if any of the host/PF turns it
off, "live reset" is not allowed. This serves the purpose of what we
are trying to add in runtime cmode.
Do you want me to keep it as a driver-specific param?

Please let me know if this is clear and makes less confusion.

Thanks,
Vasundhara
