As the Geminilake firmware is now merged to linux-firmware.git
use MODUE_FIRMWARE to load the firmware.

This removes the error message in the dmesg log: 

    i915 0000:00:02.0: Direct firmware load for 
        i915/glk_dmc_ver1_04.bin failed with error -2
    i915 0000:00:02.0: Failed to load DMC firmware 
        i915/glk_dmc_ver1_04.bin. Disabling runtime power management.
    i915 0000:00:02.0: DMC firmware homepage:
        https://01.org/linuxgraphics/downloads/firmware

and now shows that the firmware has correctly loaded:

    [drm] Finished loading DMC firmware i915/glk_dmc_ver1_04.bin (v1.4)

NAK on indiscriminate Cc: stable. There are zero guarantees that older
kernels will work with whatever firmware you throw at them.

Anusha, Rodrigo, are we even ready to do this in our -next?


BR,
Jani.

PS. How is this a "RESEND"? I haven't seen this before.

I included 'Cc: stable' so the patch would get added to the v4.16 and
v4.15 kernels
which I have tested with the patch. I found that earlier kernels
didn't support the
'linux-firmware' package required to get wifi working on Intel's new
Gemini Lake NUC.

It is a 'RESEND' for that very reason. I initially sent the patch to
the same people as
a similar patch (https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/10143637/) however
after realising
this omitted required addresses I added them and resent the patch.

Best regards,
Ian

You realize that this patch should have nothing to do with wifi?

Rodrigo, Anusha, if you think Cc: stable is appropriate, please indicate
the specific versions of stable it is appropriate for.

BR,
Jani.

Yes. Runtime power management depends on the patch but when distros
such as Ubuntu are installed on a Intel Gemini Lake NUC as an example,
wifi/bluetooth depends on Intel Wireless-AC 9462 which in turn depends
on v4.15 as a minimum so my logic was to add the patch to 4.15 and later.

Hi Jani,

The stable kernel version is 4.12 and beyond.
It is appropriate to add the CC: stable in my opinion

Who tested the firmware with v4.12 and later? We only have the CI
results against *current* drm-tip. We don't even know about v4.16.

I'm not going to ack and take responsibility for the stable backports
unless someone actually comes forward with credible Tested-bys.

BR,
Jani.

And even then, some distros will be surprised of the new MODULE_FIRMWARE
and will need to update the linux-firmware package, too.

I've performed backport testing and some additional analysis as follows:

The DMC firmware for GLK was initially included in 4.11
  (commit: dbb28b5c3d3cb945a63030fab8d3894cf335ce19).
Then the firmware version was upgraded to 1.03 in 4.12
  (commit: f4a791819ed00a749a90387aa139706a507aa690).
However MODULE_FIRMWARE for the GLK DMC firmware
was also removed in 4.12
  (commit: d9321a03efcda867b3a8c6327e01808516f0acd7)
together with the firmware version being bumped to 1.04
  (commit: aebfd1d37194e00d4c417e7be97efeb736cd9c04).

The patch below effectively reverts commit d9321a03 because the GLK
firmware is now available in the linux-firmware repository.

To test stable backports I've used Ubuntu 18.04 (Beta 2) userspace with
both Ubuntu (generic) and self-compiled mainline (patched) kernels.
The conclusion was that the patch works across 4.12 to 4.17-rc1 kernels
additionally displaying a 'Possible missing firmware' message when
installing a kernel with the expected firmware missing.

The following are abridged backport test results:

Scenario: No DMC (glk_dmc_ver1_04.bin) firmware installed in
'/lib/firmware/i915'
  Test:Kernel installation ('grep -i dmc' output from 'apt install'):
    4.12-generic and 4.15-generic:
      No output # as expected
    4.12 to 4.17-rc1-patched:
      W: Possible missing firmware
/lib/firmware/i915/glk_dmc_ver1_04.bin for module i915
  Result: The effect of the patch is to add a 'Possible missing
firmware' message.
  Test: Booting ('grep -i dmc' output from 'dmesg'):
    4.12-generic:
      No output # as expected
    4.15-generic:

I did some basic testing including running a 4K video on Chrome whilst
running intel_gpu_top. The intel_gpu_top program doesn't display
anything on 4.12 either with or without the patch as neither I nor
Canonical enabled CONFIG_DRM_I915_ALPHA_SUPPORT. Do you think that the
stable tag should exclude 4.12 because of the 'alpha quality support'
and if so do you want a V2 of the patch?

Best regards,
Ian

I understand your concerns, but the problem was that our old process
was a bit (lot?) messed and there was the unreliable time
until the firmware really lands on linux-firmware.git. So MODULE_FIRMWARE
call was only added after firmware was really there on firmware repository
but it wasn't about the testing.

In other words, the bump version patch was merged after tested, but
MODULE_FIRMWARE was left behind because firmware blob took a while to get
pulled into linux-firmware.git and we end up forgetting to add it there.

In my opinion it should be safe to add the MODULE_FIRMWARE there
based on the tests from when the version was bumped.

Luis, Elio, can you guys confirm that this firmware is tested and healthy? And also, give a tested-by to this patch please?

Hi all:

We tested GLK DMC 1.04 FW in last week of September 2017, using the latest drm-tip version for that time (4.14.0-rc2) and according to our results we could declare this FW as acceptable and healthy to be used with kernel version 4.14 . 
However, we cannot guarantee quality and healthy of this FW if it is used in top of current drm-tip kernel (4.17-rc0).

Best Regards
Luis Botello

Your measured response is appreciated and raises at least four
possible alternatives for this patch to proceed:

1. It is normal that firmware is *only* tested at a certain point in
time with the drm-tip version of the mainline kernel so that the
statement 'firmware X is acceptable and healthy to be used with kernel
version Y but is not guaranteed with Y+1 or Y+n' always holds true for
any microarchitecture codename's DMC firmware. Therefore it is
appropriate for this patch to have a restricted 'Cc:
stable@vger.kernel.org # 4.14' tag together with an explicit
'Tested-by: (in 4.14)' tag.
2. As firmware testing was not performed on 4.15 and subsequent
versions, testing is still required on versions 4.15 through to the
current RC of version 4.17 for the patch to receive a 'Tested-by:' tag
together with a 'Cc: stable@vger.kernel.org # 4.14' tag.
3. Further firmware testing will only be undertaken for the current RC
of version 4.17 and on successful completion the patch will only
receive a 'Tested-by:' tag. A 'Cc: stable@vger.kernel.org' tag is not
applicable.
4. The firmware was not tested on 4.15 and subsequent versions as it's
functionality was provided by alternative means and therefore the
patch is only required in version 4.14 and should have a 'Cc:
stable@vger.kernel.org # 4.14 only' tag together with a restricted
'Tested-by: (only in 4.14)' tag.

Could you indicate which alternative is appropriate? If further
firmware testing is required (as in points 2 or 3) then can an
expected completion date be provided?

Best regards,
Ian

Hi Anusha,

Can I ask if this is on anyone's radar as I'm concerned this patch will
stall otherwise?

I see that the significance of testing with the 4.14 kernel enabled the
firmware to be included in the latest Chrome OS kernel (
https://groups.google.com/a/chromium.org/forum/#!topic/chromium-os-reviews/jtpHvZOfZ-Q).
It is important to similarly include in the mainline and stable kernels to
facilitate various distros that are now raising bug reports (for example:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/intel/+bug/1760545).

Many thanks,
Ian

Pushed to drm-intel-next-queued, thanks for the patch.

I opted to drop the Cc: stable for now. This doesn't mean it can't be
backported later on, I'm just punting on that call right now to make
some forward progress here.

Joonas, please do pick f6d3e06f0747 ("drm/i915/glk: Add MODULE_FIRMWARE
for Geminilake") to drm-intel-fixes to queue it to v4.17.

BR,
Jani.

Done. That's the only drm-intel-fixes patch there seems to be for -rc4.
