Currently, vkms only work with enabled VBlank. This patch adds another
operation model that allows vkms to work without VBlank support. In this
scenario, vblank signaling is faked by calling drm_send_vblank_event()
in vkms_crtc_atomic_flush(); this approach works due to the
drm_vblank_get() == 0 checking.

Changes since V2:
 - Rebase

Changes since V1:
  Daniel Vetter:
  - Change module parameter name from disablevblank to virtual_hw
  - Improve parameter description
  - Improve commit message

Can be static, you only use this in vkms_drv.c.

I'm kinda wondering how this works at all ... does writeback/crc still
work if you set virtual mode? Writeback since this seems based on the
writeback series ...

btw if you send out patches that need other patches, point at that other
series in the cover letter or patch. Gets confusing fast otherwise.

Hi,

I tested this patch with kms_flip with the "drm/drm_vblank: Change
EINVAL by the correct errno" patch [1]. However, you’re right about the
writeback/crc tests, they does not pass because this patch disables
vblank which in turn does not invoke "vkms_vblank_simulate()".

In this sense, I’m a little bit confused about how should I handle this
issue. If I correctly understood, without vblank support we have to
trigger vkms_composer_worker() when the userspace invoke
drmModePageFlip(), am I right?  If so, an approach could add page_flip()
callback to vkms and invoke vkms_composer_worker(); however, the
documentation says that page_flip is a legacy entry point. Do you have a
suggestion?

We need this in atomic, for everyone. So instead of launching a vblank and
letting the vblank simulation kick off the crc/writeback work,
atomic_flush needs to also kick of the crc/vblank work. And make sure that
we feed the same vblank frame count values to the generated vblank even as
to the crc work (or maybe those are hardcoded to 0 for vblank-less, not
sure).

Just for checking if I correctly understood... the idea is reworking
vkms_vblank_simulate() a little bit in order to decouple the kick of
crc/writeback to atomic_flush(). Right?

Yes, but only for virtual mode, where we do not have the vblank. For
vblank mode we obviously still need the vblank simulation. I haven't
looked into what/how you should set the vblank counts for the crc/composer
work in the virtual case, that probably needs some figuring out.
