Allow to build coresight as modules.  This enhances developer
efficiency by allowing the development to take place exclusively
on the target, and without needing to reboot in between changes.

depends on:
 - "amba: Export amba_bustype"
   https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/10387433/
   Queued for 4.18 here:
   http://git.armlinux.org.uk/cgit/linux-arm.git/commit/?h=for-next&id=e9ac68c34f70a0c8d51ee63d259f7c8e79b362c1 

 - "coresight: Don't use contextID with PID namespaces"
   https://www.spinics.net/lists/arm-kernel/msg652755.html
   Queued for 4.18 here:
   http://git.linaro.org/kernel/coresight.git/log/?h=next

those depends plus this series, available here:
 - git://linux-arm.org/linux-kp.git, coresight-modules branch

Changes from v3:
 - rebased on coresight/next
 - re-split per-module-wise (Mathieu P)
   - some unnecessary changes were removed as a consequence
   - git bisectability maintained
 - module get/put in coresight_build_path/release_path, respectively
   instead of enable/disable functions (Suzuki P)
   - this prevents drivers from being unloaded when they are part of
     the path in use, either by sysfs or perf mode.
 - rename few source files e.g., coresight.c -> coresight-core.c in
   order to have the resultant module be more intuitively called coresight.ko
   instead of coresight-core.ko.

Changes from v2:
 - split into multiple patches, for reviewer clarity (Greg K-H)

Changes from v1:
 - remove depends on coresight that are in the if CORESIGHT block
   (Randy Dunlap)
 - rebased and removed coresight_vpid_to_pid relocation on this
   new series this patch now depends on:
        https://www.spinics.net/lists/arm-kernel/msg652755.html
   That new series eliminates patch 2/4 from this series (patches
   1 and 4 of this series remain the same).
 - actually call tmc_read_unprepare() in tmc_remove() this time,
   instead of open-coding the kfree, dma_free_coherent calls.

Changes from versions previously sent to coresight mailing list:

 - tmc_remove: free buffer used by TMC-ETR and TMC-ETF by calling
   tmc_read_unprepare()
 - fixed an unbalanced pm_runtime_enable in coresight-replicator
 - etm[4]_remove():  call cpuhp_remove_state_nocalls() and
   etm_perf_symlink(.., false) to clear up cpuhp and symlink state
 - add module parent checks for all enable/disable functions, source
   and sink modules
   - refactored device ptr dereferences by introducing a new parent_dev
     variable
 - corrected replicator author
 - whitespace fix in funnel driver

 - added user Kconfig help text with the names of the modules.
 - Addressed Mathieu's comments:
   - renamed coresight-link-sink-tmc coresight-tmc-core
   - prevent ability to crash the system by removing drivers from an
     active path by adding try_module_get() and module_put() calls in
     funnel and replicator drivers' enable and disable functions (thanks for
     figuring that out, Mathieu).

 - Addressed most of Mathieu's comments:
   - rm __inits causing linker section mismatch errors
   - barrier_pkt made static, moved to coresight_priv.h
   - rm unnecessary tmc_* EXPORT_SYMBOL leftovers
   - add some missing MODULE_AUTHORs

Checking for ifdef CONFIG_x fails if CONFIG_x=m.  Use IS_ENABLED
that is true for both built-ins and modules, instead.  Required
when building coresight components as modules.

barrier_pkt[] is used in the etb and tmc-etf coresight
components.  Change barrier_pkt[] to a static definition,
so as to allow them to be built as modules.

Export these symbols for use by other coresight components,
so they can be built as modules.

coresight_timeout is used by the coresight stm, etm4x, tmc,
tpiu, and etb10 modules, and etm_perf_symlink is needed by
the etm3x/4x modules.

Increment the refcnt for driver modules in current use by calling
module_get in coresight_build_path and module_put in release_path.

This prevents driver modules from being unloaded when they are in use,
either in sysfs or perf mode.

Allow to build coresight-stm as a module, for ease of development.

- Kconfig becomes a tristate, to allow =m
- add a stm_remove function, for module unload
- add a MODULE_DEVICE_TABLE for autoloading on boot

Allow to build coresight-etb10 as a module, for ease of development.

- Kconfig becomes a tristate, to allow =m
- add an etb_remove function, for module unload
- add a MODULE_DEVICE_TABLE for autoloading on boot

- append -core to source file name to allow module to
  be called coresight-tmc by the Makefile
- add an tmc_remove function, for module unload
- add a MODULE_DEVICE_TABLE for autoloading on boot

Allow to build coresight as a module.  This enhances
coresight developer efficiency by allowing the development to
take place exclusively on the target, and without needing to
reboot in between changes.

- Kconfig becomes a tristate, to allow =m
- append -core to source file name to allow module to
  be called coresight by the Makefile
- modules can have only one init/exit, so we add the core bus
  register/unregister function calls to the etm_perf init/exit
  functions, since coresight.c does not have etm_pmu defined.
- add a MODULE_DEVICE_TABLE for autoloading on boot

Kim,

It would be safer to do the check before we actually add the device to 
the path above. That way, we don't add an unavailable device to the 
path, which will be "released" in the release_path below.

Otherwise looks good to me.

Why does it matter?  Shouldn't you be allowed to remove any module at
any point in time, much like a networking driver?

What is to keep parent->driver from going away right here?  What keeps
parent around?  This feels very fragile to me, I don't see any locking
anywhere around this code path to try to keep things in place.

This should be 2 patches as you are doing two different things here.

Are you _sure_ this is doing what you think it is doing?

You now just created a bunch of different copies of this structure,
which might change the logic involved, right?

Putting a static variable in a .h file is generally considered a very
bad thing to do, I need a lot more "proof" this is ok before I can
accept this.  Worse case, just put the variable in the individual places
where it is needed.

thanks,

Shouldn't this line be:

Those 3 lines should be written as 1 line:

You're right. We do have coresight_mutex, which is held across the build 
path and the csdev is removed when a device is unregistered. However, I
see that we don't hold the mutex while removing the connections from
coresight_unregister(). Holding the mutex should protect us from the
csdev being removed, while we build the path.

And while we are at this, I also realised that we hold references to the
parent devices for each connection (via bus_find_device() from 
of_coresight_get_endpoint_device()), while parsing the platform data, 
which is never released.

It feels a bit weird to move the coresight core specific steps to
etm_perf_init. Why not call etm_perf_init from coresight init routine
and keep everything core specific in the coresight-core.c ?

Locks are to protect data, not code, be careful here please.

That's the big issue with the module reference counting, it "protects"
code, not data.  If at all possible, never grab a module reference
count, as you should always be able to unload a module, unless you have
a file handle open, and if you have that, the kernel core will properly
protect you.

The user doesn't have an explicit refcount on the individual components
in a trace session. So, when a trace session is in progress, it is as
good as having a "file" open on each component that is part of the
active trace session. So, we don't want the driver to be removed when
the component is being used in the trace collection. This will be
released as soon as the session is ended. It is just like a PMU driver
where the module refcount is held to ensure the module stays until the
session is over. In this case, we have multiple components, each with
its own driver invisible to the PMU driver. Hence the coresight driver
must hold the reference.

The mutex here is to protect updates to the device links. We
keep a list of connections from each device to form a trace path.
When we unregister a device, we must remove the references to the
device from all the other connected components to ensure they don't
end up accessing a device which is gone.

So in a nutshell, we have user invisible components which cannot be
refcounted explicitly by the file handles, and thus the driver must
do it.
Now, one option we could explore is getting the refcount on the
devices itself, rather than the drivers for trace sessions. And each
device could potentially hold a refcount on the driver (which I assume
is already held), which can be dropped when the device is no longer
used and thus get rid of the reference on the module everywhere.

Thoughts ? Suggestions ?

Why not?  What's wrong with that happening and then the trace collection
starts failing with -ENODEV or something?

Remember, removing a kernel module is something that only happens very
rarely, and is an explicit choice by someone with root permissions.  If
you want to remove that module, it should be able to go, as you know
what you are doing at that point in time.

Don't try to "protect the user from themselves" here, they want to shoot
their foot, make it hurt if they are aiming it there :)

Again, please think this through and don't add extra complexity to the
normal path, and get it right if you do it (the existing patch is not
right as I pointed out.)  Personally, I feel the code should just be
able to be unloaded whenever they want, user beware...

May be I am missing something here. Can we allow the driver to be 
removed when one of its device is "turned ON" and we need the same
driver to "turn it OFF" when the session ends ? To make a better
comparison :

Can we unload a usb_mass_storage module when a USB disk(which uses the 
module driver) is mounted and is being used ? I believe, the module
will eventually get unloaded when we unmount the disk, if someone did
a unload.

We have a similar situation here. The only difference is the driver is
referenced only when one of its device is in a trace session.

Right, but when a device is "in use" can we do that ? I thought the user
will get a module is in use or busy, error.

The module_get/put added here are only triggered when we start a trace 
session, where we build a path for the current session from the 
configured "source" to the configured "sink" and the path is destroyed
at the end of the trace session. i.e, the path is not a permanent thing.
It is constructed per session. So it is perfectly possible to remove a
device in between trace sessions.

Forgot to add, this will indeed hit -ENODEV, if the device driver was
removed, as we fail to build the trace path before the session.

Not completely. We store the dev_name() as a reference, which itself can 
be free'd, when the device is gone. I have a fix for this in my next
version of the DT clean up series [0], where I clean up most of the
platform parsing code.

No, mount causes the module count to be incrememted.  Mount and
"open/close" are the old-school way of doing module reference counting.

Look at how network drivers work today, you can unload any network
driver even if there is a valid network connection "up and running"
attached to it.  It just gets torn down when that request happens.

I understand, I'm saying that you have to be very careful when messing
around with module reference counts to get it correct and perhaps you
should just change your design to not care about module reference counts
at all, like networking did 15+ years ago.

Let's learn from the good examples in our past (like networking), and
not like the older bad examples (like mount/files).

That's fine, but again, just be careful to get this correct.  The patch
I reviewed did not seem to do that.

Ok, that makes more sense now. Thanks for the hints. However, it doesn't
look that easy from the coresight point due to the way the devices are
used in an interconnected manner which could be part of multiple trace
sessions.

e.g, a funnel could be part of two independent trace sessions with
different sets of sources/sinks. Tearing down the trace sessions is
going to be a difficult task unless we make drastic changes to the PMU
framework itself. But will see, what best we can do to make it modern
:-)

I'm going to assume the series is still valid after this discussion,
since technically just this patch can get dropped, and the user is able
to shoot themselves in the foot.  This series is for development
purposes, after all.

Let me know if I'm missing something.

That doesn't mean the kernel can panic() if the user decided to unload 
the module while the trace session is in progress. It only means that
the trace session could be stopped in between in the worst case. But
nothing more harmful to the system.

>  This series is for development  purposes, after all.

Do you mean that this series is for internal development purposes and 
not upstream ? Making the drivers modular are always helpful, especially 
for something related to tracing, that allows the module to be unloaded 
after use. So, it would be good to have this series in, but in a manner 
which is usable and doesn't cause harm to the overall system usage.

I think the summary of the discussion is that we need more robust code
to handle the situation, which also allows unloading the modules without
any trouble.

Cheers

Correct, we can't have a patchset that generates a kernel panic.

The tricky part is the "unloading without any trouble".  The first
thing to so is if the driver is being used, the _remove() functions
need to go through the same process as it would under normal
condition.  That will allow to reinsert the module and have a fairly
good level of assurance that things will work properly.

Looking at things a little closer all the interconnection dependencies
in the core are done using a csdev and a lot of the current code is
already checking for a NULL condition (more checks may be needed with
the introduction of this set).  The real problem is with the "path"
used to keep track of the devices taking part in active sessions.
Those can be accessed when a process is swapped in and out, mandating
something fast and efficient.  One thing we could do is in a path,
keep track of a reference on csdev rather than make a copy of their
addresses.  That way the _remove() functions could simply set those to
NULL, making it easy to deal with.

I see the perf functionality as an accessory to the core rather than
the other way around.  Initialisation in the core code should be
driving the PMU registration.

FWIW, I didn't see the kernel panic in my basic tests; just some bad
accesses: the new remove functions take care of cleaning up most items,
and most drivers still depend on the links and sinks (funnel,
replicator) drivers, so they can't be upset too bad.

no, I'm posting them for upstream review because I'd like them upstream.

Trouble's relative.  My point was since the series is going to be used
mainly by developers testing their code, they already prepare for, and
expect badness to occur anyway.  Greg's point isn't lost here, and in
my interpretation, his review of this patch was that it was in the
wrong direction of safety: it made things unnecessarily too safe, up
front, and that items relative to the perf core should strive to adhere
to the higher standards set in place by the networking subsystem.  So,
this patch doesn't get his ack.

I compiled a new v5 series that omits this patch, and overwrote the v4
series here:

git://linux-arm.org/linux-kp.git, coresight-modules branch

but I'll hold of submitting a v5 for now.

I don't know how the perf core handles AUXTRACE drivers hanging up on
it.  I see intel-pt record support can't be built as a module.  I'm
guessing more testing for actual panics when using perf or sysfs is
what's being sought here?

Greg's point was that it's OK to let users harm themselves (which I
totally support), but if you're going to prevent it, make sure to do
it right.

There are two ways to approach the problem:

1) Kill active trace sessions (either sysFS or perf) if a driver that
is being used is removed.
2) Deal with the removal in the coresight core, making sure we don't
access operations provided by removed drivers.

The end result in both cases will be the same: failure to properly
terminate the trace session because of user action.

I'm personally in favour of the second option, simply because it keeps
problems resolution with the CS subsystem.

Bad accesses are still bad. The bad access could trigger an Oops for 
e.g, or could even corrupt the other parts of the kernel if we try
to access a memory that is free'd (and reallocated to somebody else).
So, the point is there are issues with the series which we know for
sure from code analysis. It may take different forms to show up at
runtime.

Making something modular is not really just for the use of developers.
There are and will be other users for a device driver as a module and
it is a fundamental feature people expect (especially in the enterprise
world, where there is one kernel which builds most of the stuff as
module to let the users pick the individual drivers as they need).
So, at the kernel driver you can't really be sure, if the user is
actually aware of the "developer" only mode and he knows that we can
crash the kernel.

One of the areas of improvement towards the "modern" behavior is failing
the activation of the trace schedule, when a component in the path has
been removed when we go through coresight_enable_path(). Right now, we 
create a path and then we do enable_path() and disable_path() around the
trace schedules and the path is destroyed only at pmu->free_aux(). With
the current patch, we hold the reference to the device/driver throughout
the duration of the life time of the tracing, even when the tracing
may be disabled in between.

I think, if we get to that point, we should be at the best we can reach
towards the expected behavior. But having said that, it is indeed tricky
to get that. May be we could play a little bit with the refcounting on
csdev and check if the refcount is only held by the number of paths this
component is part of (needs more thought).
