	Hi,

I've had the following funny crashes on PPC machines, with
cataleptic X server as a consequence:

kernel: ---[ end trace ed79daba161e31d9 ]---

As you can see, the processor is trying to execute ASCII strings like
"/usr/lib/libxkb" and has trouble digesting them :-) 

The backtrace is actually missing radeon_cp_init_microcode and radeon_do_init_cp
which are inlined inside radeon_cp_init.

The trouble is that radeon_cp_init_microcode calls platform_device_register_simple
which is a simple inline wrapper around platform_device_register_resndata, which
happens to be already freed and overwritten with something looking like a list
of filenames, since I have a non modular kernel.

For now I have locally reverted 737a3bb9416ce2a7c7a4170852473a4fcc9c67e8
which simply added an _init_or_module section attribute to 
platform_device_register_resndata, and X is up again... 

Now it may be that it is the ioctl that does not have the right to do
this. Actually I thought that the name radeon_cp that is registered there
would appear somwhere under /sys (or /proc) but failed to find it...

	Regards,
	Gabriel

FWIW the radeon_cp* functions are in drivers/gpu/drm/radeon.

I don't know for sure, but it looks strange to me that an ioctl can
register a device. But the fear for such code in the kernel made me
choose not to squash 737a3bb941 into 44f28bdea094. So my POV is that if
the maintainer of the radeon driver thinks registering the device is OK,
reverting 737a3bb9416 is fine for me.

Best regards
Uwe

This is the old DRM driver for radeon, which relies on userspace to
start X then calls the kernel
to initialise the hardware. Due to this model, there is no device we
can hang off (the PCI device
might already be bound to fbdev), so we are forced to create a
platform device to load the firmware.

So its ugly, unless someone can suggest a better device to hang things
off I don't know of another way.

Dave.

The probem is that, at least on one of my machines, the new driver
does not work: the system hangs (apparently solid, but it's before
networking starts up and I've not yet hooked up a serial console), 
after the "radeon: ib pool ready" message.

With the old driver, I've found some combinations of configuration
options that works. They all fail when DRM_RADEON_KMS is enabled.

	Hi Dave,

Actually, even the old DRM driver occasionally hangs on this machine,
I suspect a missing barrier, but I might be completely off base.

The system is up, only X uses 100% of one core and according to
gdb X is there:

	Hi Dave,

sorry, in my previous message I forgot the strace
output, which is an inifinite loop of the following:

--- SIGALRM (Alarm clock) @ 0 (0) ---
sigreturn()                             = ? (mask now [])
ioctl(7, 0xc0286429, 0xffdf9bb8)        = -1 EBUSY (Device or resource busy)
--- SIGALRM (Alarm clock) @ 0 (0) ---
sigreturn()                             = ? (mask now [])
ioctl(7, 0xc0286429, 0xffdf9bb8)        = -1 EBUSY (Device or resource busy)

Note: fd 7 is /dev/dri/card0.

Does radeon.agpmode=-1 radeon.no_wb=1 help?

You might be able to get more information via netconsole if you prevent
the radeon module from loading automatically (or load it with
radeon.modeset=0 first) and then load it e.g. via ssh with modeset=1.

It would be interesting to see at least all agp/drm/radeon related
kernel messages before the problem occurs.

Loading the module with modeset=1 results in insmod blocked in
kernel state (not consuming CPU cycles either). The last kernel 
message is always the same (ib pool ready). This seems to be 
independent of agpmode and no_wb. The kernel messages when
loading the driver are:

For now, with modeset=0, agpmode=-1 and no_wb=1, the driver
seems to work. But it sometimes took hours to fail, so some
more wait is needed.

Have you ruled out any MSI related problems? I think the IRQ not working
could explain the symptoms...

Make sure this line changes to 'WB disabled' with no_wb=1. There's a
writeback endianness bug with modeset=1, see
http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/dri-devel/2011-April/009960.html .

The agpmode and no_wb options only have an effect with modeset=1, and
you don't seem to be using AGP anyway. :)

Booting with MSI disabled does not change anything. Actually on this
machine the Ethernet (tigon3) uses MSI and everything is fine. OTOH,
on my home PC (dual code Athlon64 4 1/2 years old), MSI has never worked.

Okay, the fact no_wb helps probably rules out an IRQ problem anyway.

Which ioctl does it loop on? Please provide the Xorg.0.log file as well.

Hmm, I think this should say fb0, but that should only matter for

BTW, if your kernel contains commit
69a07f0b117a40fcc1a479358d8e1f41793617f2, can you try if reverting that
helps?

Note that it's normal for this ioctl to be called every time before the
GPU accessible pixmap memory is accessed by the CPU. Unless the ioctl
always returns an error, this may not indicate a problem on its own. 


> The Xorg.0.log from the previous boot is attached.

I don't see any obvious problems in it. Can you describe the symptoms of
the problem you're having with X a bit more?

One thing I notice is that the X server/driver are rather oldish. Maybe
you can try newer versions from testing, sid or even experimental to see
if that makes any difference.

It seems to be an infinite loop, always returning EINTR because
of regular SIGALRM delivery.

Well, X is dead, or rather in an infinite ioctl loop as described  above.
IIRC, the display enters a power-down mode and there is nothing to see.

I lack time to do it until early May (being away for 2 weeks starting on 
Friday and busy on urgent things). I'm indeed Debian stable (Squeeze),
which is rather recent and the machine is about 2 1/2 years old.

My kernel is pristine 2.6.38 and does not include this commit
(was introduced before 2.6.39-rc1 according to gitk).

gitk is not the best tool to find this out.

$ git name-rev --refs=refs/tags/v2.6\* 69a07f0b117a40fcc1a479358d8e1f41793617f2
69a07f0b117a40fcc1a479358d8e1f41793617f2 tags/v2.6.39-rc2~3^2~43^2~4

so it was introduced just before -rc2.

Best regards
Uwe

So basically the card crashed. There's about an infinite amount of
reasons why radeons do so, sometimes it has to do with them not liking
what you ate that day...

The only thing I can see that could be of use would be a bisect

Bisecting for something which I have never got to work (radeon with
KMS) on this machine is something I don't know how to do...

Note that radeon without KMS also always ends up crashing, but it
may take hours. The only case where the machine works reliably is 
when glxinfo claims that it is using software rendering.

So who is right? I think it was before rc1. 

Anyway I'm aware that there are other git commands, although for the option
details I often have to have a look at the man page.

However in this case the main reason to fire gitk was to have a quick look 
at the patch and its context, and simply reported the "Precedes" line 
in the display, which is 2.6.39-rc1. It also follow v2.6.37-rc2, which means
that it has been quite a long time outside the main tree.

That does sound like the GPU locks up. Do you get any messages in dmesg
about lockups and attempts to reset the GPU at any time?

Yep, correct. I interpreted the output of git name-rev to mean it's not
included in a tag earlier than v2.6.39-rc2, but actually that's wrong.
It's just that it's easier (for some definition of easy) to reach the
commit in question from v2.6.39-rc2 than from v2.6.39-rc1.

I think this conclusion isn't valid in general. (E.g. in git itself a
bug-fix is often done on top of the commit that introduced it and than
merged into master. Still the bugfix might be new.) But looking at the
AuthorDate of 69a07f0b117a seems to support your statement.

Best regards

No.

Hmm, I guess the constant SIGALRMs might prevent the lockup detection
from kicking in... Maybe you can try starting the X server with
-dumbSched to see if that gets things along any further, but in the end
there's probably no way around figuring out what causes the lockup and
fixing that anyway.

I have an old AGP box that locks with 600g + agpgart - It used to give 
GPU lockup to dmesg/log, but (I only test it occasionally) it doesn't 
anymore. I can still sysrq OK.

I wonder if something changed in recent months in the drm/whatever code 
that has changed/blocked the logging.
