Which does not work as the kobj will complain (as there is already an 'reset' associated with the PCI device).

Unless you mean an different name (reset2).

It is only needed if the core won't provide one.

Subject: [PATCH 2/2] xen-pciback: provide a "reset" sysfs file to try harder
 at an SBR

The standard implementation of pci_reset_function() does not try an
SBR if there are other sibling devices.  This is a common
configuration for multi-function devices (e.g., GPUs with a HDMI audio
device function).

If all the functions are co-assigned to the same domain at the same
time, then it is safe to perform an SBR to reset all functions at the
same time.

Add a "reset" sysfs file with the same interface as the standard one
(i.e., write 1 to reset) that will try an SBR if all sibling devices
are unbound or bound to pciback.

Note that this is weaker than the requirement for functions to be
simultaneously co-assigned, but the toolstack is expected to ensure
this.

Wouldn't the "core-reset-sysfs-file" be still wired to the end up calling 
"pci.c:__pci_dev_reset" ?

The problem with that function is that from my testing it seems that the 
first option "pci_dev_specific_reset" always seems to return succes, so all the
other options are skipped (flr, pm, slot, bus). However the device it self is 
not properly reset enough (perhaps the pci_dev_specific_reset is good enough for 
none virtualization purposes and it's probably the least intrusive. For 
virtualization however it would be nice to be sure it resets properly, or have a 
way to force a specific reset routine.) 

So it's the ordering and skipping of the other resets that seems to make
this workaround necessary in the first place.

Then you need work with the maintainer for those specific devices or
drivers to fix their specific reset function.

I'm not adding stuff to pciback to workaround broken quirks.

OK that's a pretty clear message there, so if one wants to use pci and vga
passthrough one should better use KVM and vfio-pci. 

vfio-pci has:
- logic to do the try-slot-bus-reset logic
- it has quirks specific to vga passthrough
implemented in from the looks of it a quite clean driver.
(the main issue with it so far was you could only seize devices based on 
vendor and device id, which can be a problem when you have multiple devices.
However that was resolved recently if i am correct.)

And neither of those will be supported by xen-pciback if i get your message 
right ?

Hrmm have to correct my self because the vga-pt quirks are part of the vfio-pci 
part in qemu.

The try-slot-bus-reset logic is part of the kernel vfio-pci driver though and they faced the same locking issue it 
seems:

Have you (or anyone else) ever raised the problem with the broken reset
quirk for certain devices with the relevant maintainer?

> vfio-pci has:

Just because vfio-pci fixed it incorrectly doesn't mean pciback has to
as well.

It makes no sense for both pciback and vfio-pci to workaround problems
with pci_function_reset() in different ways -- it should be fixed in the
core PCI code so both can benefit and make use of the same code.

Depends on what you call an "incorrect fix" .. it fixes a quirk .. 
you can say that's incorrect, but then you would have to remove 50% of
the kernel and Xen code as well.

(i do in general agree it's better to strive for a generic solution though,
that's exactly why i brought up that that function doesn't seem to work perfect
for virtualization purposes)

Well perhaps Bjorn knows why the order of resets and skipping the rest as
implemented in "pci.c:__pci_dev_reset" was implemented in that way ?

Especially what is the expectation about pci_dev_specific_reset doing a proper 
reset for say a vga-card:
- i know it doesn't work on a radeon card (doesn't blank screen, on next guest 
  boot reports it's already posted, powermanagement doesn't work).
- while with a slot/bus reset, that all just works fine, screen blanks 
  immediately and everything else also works.

Added Alex as well since he added this workaround for KVM/vfio-pci, perhaps he knows why
he introduced the workaround in vfio-pci instead of trying to fix it in core pci 
code ?

I don't know what workaround you're talking about.  As devices are
released from the user, vfio-pci attempts to reset them.  If
pci_reset_function() returns success we mark the device clean, otherwise
it gets marked dirty.  Each time a device is released, if there are
dirty devices we test whether we can try a bus/slot reset to clean them.
In the case of assigning a GPU this typically means that the GPU or
audio function come through first, there's no reset mechanism so it gets
marked dirty, the next device comes through and we manage to try a bus
reset.  vfio-pci does not have any device specific resets, all
functionality is added to the PCI-core, thank-you-very-much.  I even
posted a generic PCI quirk patch recently that marks AMD VGA PM reset as
bad so that pci_reset_function() won't claim that worked.  All VGA
access quirks are done in QEMU, the kernel doesn't have any business in
remapping config space over MMIO regions or trapping other config space
backdoors.

I have never heard of problems with the dev specific reset claiming to
work and not doing anything, there are only a few of these, it should be
easy to debug.

I didn't read the original patch, but the title alone of this patch is
quite confusing.  FLR is specifically a function-level-reset, so one
would expect 'do_flr' to be function specific.  The pci-sysfs 'reset'
attribute is already function specific.  If pci_reset_function() isn't
doing the job and we need to use bus/slot reset, it's clearly not an
FLR.  Thanks,

Alex

Thanks for your insightful reply!

With "workaround" I was trying to refer to "vfio_pci_try_bus_reset()" which
implements how to reset the devices, it indeed uses function you introduced in
pci core code (with a solution for locking issues Konrad also seems to have 
ran into: 
http://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=61cf16d8bd38c3dc52033ea75d5b1f8368514a17

David seems to be arguing the whole "vfio_pci_try_bus_reset()" should be not 
needed and just doing calling "pci_reset_function()" (directly or by
echo "1" > /sys/bus/pci/devices/BDF/reset shoud always magically do the
right thing. 
(Which in my opinion seems the contradict with the mere existence
of "vfio_pci_try_bus_reset()" (i don't think you would have implemented it 
when you would have deemed it unnecessary))

The name "do_flr" is coming from the Xen xl toolstack which historically has 
code that tries to reset devices using a echo "BDF" > /sys/bus/pci/drivers/pciback/do_flr

But the name "do_flr" and the debug messages indeed are incorrect (it's not 
doing a flr nor a D3/PM reset), confusing and should not be used.

And as you seem to have solved the locking issue for vfio-pci, it is probably 
possible for xen-pciback to do the same. Instead of letting xen-pciback
work around the locking problem by deferring to the xl toolstack the resetting
logic could be kept into xen-pciback it self. 
That would also mean that the sysfs attribute would be unnecessary and make 
the naming issue moot.

That truly would be magic because a bus/slot reset and function reset
are completely different beasts.  QEMU, through vfio-pci, makes use of
both.  Take for instance hot-plugging the second port of a dual-port NIC
to a guest, where the first port may be (a) assigned to the same guest,
(b) assigned to a different guest, (c) in-use by the host, or (d)
not-in-use.  For a hotplug I can only make use of a bus/slot reset in
one of those cases (d).  For a cold-plug or VM reset, only two (a,d).  I
don't see how pci_reset_function() can have that sort of visibility to
the ownership and usage of a given device.  vfio-pci doesn't even have
this visibility, which is why the distinction is made in QEMU.  vfio-pci
is just a conduit and gatekeeper to the PCI-core interfaces, for
instance preventing QEMU from doing a reset in the (b) and (c) cases.
What prevents that in the Xen case?  Userspace?

I would consider the try_*_reset() interfaces to be a workaround for
existing locking issues which are much harder to solve.  It makes the
vfio-pci reset-on-release a best effort approach, which is generally
fine.  For vfio I can't rely on a toolstack, nor maybe should you.
There's always a chance that the VM/user is sent a kill -9 and it's the
kernel's job to protect itself and return things to a quiescent state.
This is why I don't simply have QEMU send a bus reset on shutdown or put
reset policy that can affect other users or the host in userspace.
Thanks,

Alex

We seem to be going in circles.

This thread: http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/368668/

has an interesting discussion that pretty much touches all of this
and I believe it ends with David agreeing with Alex that an
bus-reset is a perfect use-case.

I believe the contention was on how to expose this interface
to the user-space. David's was thinking to use 'reset' while
I used 'do_flr' (which is a misleading name but hte toolstack
already does it). Perhaps we should just have (as David suggested)
an 'bus_reset' on the devices.

I am going to go on a limb and presume that David was thinking
that this 'bus_reset' would be exposed in the generic PCI land?

Thanks for the info Alex, I hadn't got around to actually looking and
the vfio-pci code and was just going to what Sander said.

We probably do need to have a more in depth look at now PCI devices and
handled by both the toolstack and pciback but in the short term I would
like a simple solution that does not extend the ABI.

Could you enumerate the 'simple solution' then please? I am having
a frustrating time figuring out what it is that you are proposing.
