A bug in ftrace was reported to me that affects ARM and ARM64 but not
x86. Looking at the code it appears to affect PowerPC as well. So I
booted up my old PA Semi, to give it a try. The last time I booted it
was for a 3.17 kernel. Unfortunately, for 4.0-rc2 it crashed with:

I kicked off a ktest bisect, and it came down to this commit:

commit 746c9e9f92dde2789908e51a354ba90a1962a2eb

    of/base: Fix PowerPC address parsing hack

When I revert this from v4.0-rc2, I can successfully boot my PA Semi
again.

Argh. Well, we have one of these here but Michael who owns it is off til
Tuesday. 

Can you shoot me the DT (/proc/device-tree in a tarball) ? Olof, can the
DT be updated on this thing or should we add workarounds to Linux if
something is really missing ?

Cheers,
Ben.

This is indeed a bug in their DT. We might want to add quirks for
that unless it can be fixed (or has been via FW update). Olof ?

In the meantime, try that patch:

FW updates on this platform are highly unlikely. Quirk it is.

Oh I was not expecting a new FW, I was mostly wondering whether Steven
had the latest one since I *think* Michael has been testing with the
PA board we got here and didn't see that problem ... anyway, I'll check
with him early next week and clean up / submit that patch.

Cheers,
Ben.

Yeah I have been testing semi-regularly.

4.0-rc2 boots fine on mine.

But mine is an Athena, Steve's is an Electra. So they're not identical.

Mine is running:

  CFE version PAS-2.0.29 for ATHENA (64bit,MP,BE,PPC)
  Build Date: Mon Jun 30 11:47:25 PDT 2008 (mpl@mitch-1)

Steve is your CFE older than that?

Olof do you remember if that version or something newer is available for
Electra?

cheers

I have a chitra in my boot farm, so I run every build I do on it. I
have not hit it either, which confused me.

Turns out that Steven's machine boots with idle=doze, which is the
part that makes all the difference.


FWIW, the three machines have roughly these diffs:

* Electra: First development/eval board. Funky USB on localbus, plenty
of PCI-e. Two GigE, one 10GigE XAUI. CompactFlash and IDE on localbus
too. Usually shipped with a PCI-e SATA card and a USB card.

* Chitra: Second edition dev/eval board. Moved SATA and USB on-board,
and removed some of the localbus hardware. Might have routed three
GigE out instead of 2, can't remember.

* Athena: Never released board with a smaller package chip, there's
only a few of these around. Can't comment too much on the specifics,
but it's similar to Chitra, and the silicon is the same.

That looks about as new as they come. My board runs a .29 too.

Aha, that is the key.

So mine also crashes with idle=doze, even with the newer firmware.

So we'll have to fix this with the quirk in the kernel.

cheers
