This patchset adds the following:

 - A timecounter/cyclecounter based PHC for the free-running
   timestamping clock of this switch.

 - A state machine implemented in the DSA tagger for SJA1105, which
   keeps track of metadata follow-up Ethernet frames (the switch's way
   of transmitting RX timestamps).

 - Some common-sense on whether or not frames should be timestamped was
   taken out of the mv88e6xxx driver (the only other DSA driver with PTP
   support) and moved to the generic framework.  An option was also
   added for drivers to override these common-sense decisions, and
   timestamp some more frames.  This was the path of least resistance
   after implementing the aforementioned state machine - metadata
   follow-up frames need to be tracked anyway even if only to discard
   them and not pass them up the network stack.  And since the switch
   can't just be told to timestamp only what the kernel wants (PTP
   frames), simply use all the timestamps it provides.

 - A generic helper in the timecounter/cyclecounter code for
   reconstructing partial PTP timestamps, such as those generated by the
   SJA1105.

Not all is rosy, though.

PTP timestamping will only work when the ports are bridged. Otherwise,
the metadata follow-up frames holding RX timestamps won't be received
because they will be blocked by the master port's MAC filter. Linuxptp
tries to put the net device in ALLMULTI/PROMISC mode, but DSA doesn't
pass this on to the master port, which does the actual reception.
The master port is put in promiscous mode when the slave ports are
enslaved to a bridge.

Also, even with software-corrected timestamps, one can observe a
negative path delay reported by linuxptp:

ptp4l[55.600]: master offset          8 s2 freq  +83677 path delay     -2390
ptp4l[56.600]: master offset         17 s2 freq  +83688 path delay     -2391
ptp4l[57.601]: master offset          6 s2 freq  +83682 path delay     -2391
ptp4l[58.601]: master offset         -1 s2 freq  +83677 path delay     -2391

Without investigating too deeply, this appears to be introduced by the
correction applied by linuxptp to t4 (t4c: corrected master rxtstamp)
during the path delay estimation process (removing the correction makes
the path delay positive).  This does not appear to have an obvious
negative effect upon the synchronization.

Lastly, clock manipulations on the actual hardware PTP clock will have
to be implemented anyway, for the TTEthernet block and the time-based
ingress policer.

Some PTP hardware offers a 64-bit free-running counter whose snapshots
are used for timestamping, but only makes part of that snapshot
available as timestamps (low-order bits).

In that case, timecounter/cyclecounter users must bring the cyclecounter
and timestamps to the same bit width, and they currently have two
options of doing so:

- Trim the higher bits of the timecounter itself to the number of bits
  of the timestamps.  This might work for some setups, but if the
  wraparound of the timecounter in this case becomes high (~10 times per
  second) then this causes additional strain on the system, which must
  read the clock that often just to avoid missing the wraparounds.

- Reconstruct the timestamp by racing to read the PTP time within one
  wraparound cycle since the timestamp was generated.  This is
  preferable when the wraparound time is small (do a time-critical
  readout once vs doing it periodically), and it has no drawback even
  when the wraparound is comfortably sized.

The design of this PHC driver is influenced by the switch's behavior
w.r.t. timestamping.  It exposes two PTP counters, one free-running
(PTPTSCLK) and the other offset- and frequency-corrected in hardware
through PTPCLKVAL, PTPCLKADD and PTPCLKRATE.  The MACs can sample either
of these for frame timestamps.

However, the user manual warns that taking timestamps based on the
corrected clock is less than useful, as the switch can deliver corrupted
timestamps in a variety of circumstances.

Therefore, this PHC uses the free-running PTPTSCLK together with a
timecounter/cyclecounter structure that translates it into a software
time domain.  Thus, the settime/adjtime and adjfine callbacks are
hardware no-ops.

The timestamps (introduced in a further patch) will also be translated
to the correct time domain before being handed over to the userspace PTP
stack.

The introduction of a second set of PHC operations that operate on the
hardware PTPCLKVAL/PTPCLKADD/PTPCLKRATE in the future is somewhat
unavoidable, as the TTEthernet core uses the corrected PTP time domain.
However, the free-running counter + timecounter structure combination
will suffice for now, as the resulting timestamps yield a sub-50 ns
synchronization offset in steady state using linuxptp.

For this patch, in absence of frame timestamping, the operations of the
switch PHC were tested by syncing it to the system time as a local slave
clock with:

phc2sys -s CLOCK_REALTIME -c swp2 -O 0 -m -S 0.01

The newly introduced function is called on both the RX and TX paths.

The boolean returned by port_txtstamp should only return false if the
driver tried to timestamp the skb but failed.

Currently there is some logic in the mv88e6xxx driver that determines
whether it should timestamp frames or not.

This is wasteful, because if the decision is to not timestamp them, then
DSA will have cloned an skb and freed it immediately afterwards.

Additionally other drivers (sja1105) may have other hardware criteria
for timestamping frames on RX, and the default conditions for
timestamping a frame are too restrictive.  When RX timestamping is
enabled, the sja1105 hardware emits a follow-up frame containing the
timestamp for every trapped link-local frame.  Then the link-local frame
is queued up inside the port_rxtstamp callback where it waits for its
follow-up meta frame to come.  But only a subset of the link-local
frames will pass through DSA's default filter for port_rxtstamp, so the
rest of the link-local traffic would still receive a meta frame but
would not get timestamped.

Since the state machine of waiting for meta frames is implemented in the
tagger rcv function for sja1105, it is difficult to know which frames
will pass through DSA's later filter and which won't.  And since
timestamping more frames than just PTP does no harm, just implement a
callback for sja1105 that will say that all link-local traffic will be
timestamped on RX.

PTP classification on the skb is still performed.  But now it is saved
to the DSA_SKB_CB, so drivers can reuse it without calling it again.

The mv88e6xxx driver was also modified to use the new generic
DSA_SKB_CB(skb)->ptp_type instead of its own, custom SKB_PTP_TYPE(skb).

On RX, timestamping is done by programming the switch to send "meta"
follow-up Ethernet frames after each link-local frame that was trapped
to the CPU port through MAC filtering. This includes PTP frames. These
meta frames contain partial timestamps that are processed in a worker
thread and then the link-local traffic is released back on its path up
the network stack once the timestamps are in place.

Meta frame reception relies on the hardware keeping its promise that it
will send no other traffic towards the CPU port between a link-local
frame and a meta frame. The receive function is made stateful while
expecting for the meta frame to arrive, and a last_stampable_skb pointer
is kept. Otherwise there is no other way to associate the meta frame
with the link-local frame it's holding a timestamp of.

On TX, timestamping is performed synchronously from the port_deferred_xmit
worker thread. In management routes, the switch is requested to take
egress timestamps (again partial), which are reconstructed and appended
to a clone of the skb that was just sent. The cloning is done by DSA and
we retrieve the pointer from the structure that DSA keeps in skb->cb.
Then these clones are enqueued to the socket's error queue for
application-level processing.

Without noticing any particular issue, this patch ensures that
management traffic is treated with the maximum priority on RX by the
switch.  This is generally desirable, as the driver keeps a state
machine that waits for metadata follow-up frames as soon as a management
frame is received.  Increasing the priority helps expedite the reception
(and further reconstruction) of the RX timestamp to the driver after the
MAC has generated it.

Hrm. Is this actually generic? Would it make more sense to have the
specific implementations with this quirk implement this in their
read() handler? If not, why?

Strongly agree that this workaround should stay in the driver.  After
all, we do not want to encourage HW designers to continue in this way.

No, it isn't wasteful.  Look at the tests in that driver to see why.

I'm sorry, but we won't change the frame just for one device that has
design issues.

Please put device specific workarounds into its driver.

No.  The root cause is the time stamps delivered by the hardware or
your driver.  That needs to be addressed before going forward.

Hi John, Richard,

It's not the cycle counter that needs reconstruction, but hardware
timestamps based on it.  Hence not possible to add a workaround in the
read() handler.
If it's not desirable to have this helper function in the cyclecounter
I'll move it to the driver in v2.

Hi Richard,

I removed this patch and my RX timestamping path still works, apparently.
It's just that now I'm not holding up in the RX timestamping queue
anything else except what the PTP classifier requested me to.
What I'm concerned about is that I'm using the skb->cb as a
communication space between the tagger waiting for the meta frame, and
the RX timestamping queue waiting to be notified that the meta frame
arrived.
If I'm not holding up all frames that I know will have a follow-up
come after them, then I'm letting them free up the stack, and who
knows whose skb->cb the tagger will overwrite.
By asking me to remove this patch you're basically asking the state
machine inside the tagger to guess whether the previous frame is one
that DSA cares about w.r.t. RX timestamping, and based on that info
write to its skb->cb or not.
I would like to avoid keeping meta frames in their own RX queue,
because then I'm complicating (or rather put, making impossible) the
association between a meta frame and the frame it holds a timestamp
of.

Regards,
-Vladimir

It is a fallback for HW that doesn't support multicast filtering.

Care to look a few lines above?  If you did, you would have seen this:

	memset(&mreq, 0, sizeof(mreq));
	mreq.mr_ifindex = index;
	mreq.mr_type = PACKET_MR_MULTICAST;
	mreq.mr_alen = MAC_LEN;
	memcpy(mreq.mr_address, addr1, MAC_LEN);

	err1 = setsockopt(fd, SOL_PACKET, option, &mreq, sizeof(mreq));

Well, you can see that there is something wrong.  Perhaps you are not
matching the meta frames to the received packets.  That is one
possible explanation, but you'll have to figure out what is happening.

We have an example of how a driver can match meta time stamp packets
with received packets.  See drivers/net/phy/dp83640.c to see how it
can be done completely within the driver.

The meta frames generated by the SJA1105 do not contain any seqid.
They contain:
* A globally programmable DMAC
* A globally programmable SMAC
* The 0x8 EtherType
* A partial (24-bit or 32-bit) RX timestamp
* Two bytes from the initial (pre follow-up) frame's DMAC, before the
switch mangled those with the source port and switch id. The driver is
supposed to patch these bytes from the follow-up back into the initial
frame before passing them up the stack.
* The source port that generated the meta frame
* The switch id that generated the meta frame

You're right.
In fact that's why it doesn't work: because linuxptp adds ptp_dst_mac
(01-1B-19-00-00-00) and (01-80-C2-00-00-0E) to the MAC's multicast
filter, but the switch in its great wisdom mangles bytes
01-1B-19-xx-xx-00 of the DMAC to place the switch id and source port
there (a rudimentary tagging mechanism). So the frames are no longer
accepted by this multicast MAC filter on the DSA master port unless
it's put in ALLMULTI or PROMISC.

If the meta frames weren't associated with the correct link-local
frame, then the whole expect_meta -> SJA1105_STATE_META_ARRIVED
mechanism would go haywire, but it doesn't.
I was actually thinking it has something to do with the fact that I
shouldn't apply frequency corrections on timestamps of PTP delay
messages. Does that make any sense?

None of these match to the original frame uniquely.  Looks like this
is a dead end.

I recommend forgetting about these meta frames.  Instead, read out the
time stamps over MDIO.

IOW, it is not linuxptp's choice to use these modes, but rather this
is caused by a limitation of your device.

Not necessarily.  If two frames that arrive at nearly the same time
get their timestamps mixed up, that would be enough to break the time
values but without breaking your state machine.

What do you mean by that?  Is the driver altering PTP message fields?

Or SPI.  It appears you use that for Tx time stamps already.

Yes, they don't identify the original frame.
The hardware's line of thinking seems to be "The meta frame is sent
immediately after the trapped frame that triggered the action." (quote
from https://www.nxp.com/docs/en/user-guide/UM10944.pdf).

Didn't want to suggest otherwise. I'll see how I'm going to address that.

This doesn't exactly sound like the type of thing I can check for.
The RX and TX timestamps *are* monotonically increasing with time for
all frames when I'm printing them in the {rx,tx}tstamp callbacks.

No.
The driver returns free-running timestamps altered with a timecounter
frequency set by adjfine and offset set by adjtime.
I was wondering out loud if there's any value in identifying delay
messages in order to not apply this frequency adjustment for their
timestamps.

But are the frames received in the same order?  What happens your MAC
drops a frame?

That should be correct.

If it drops a normal frame, it carries on.
If it drops a meta frame, it prints "Expected meta frame", resets the
state machine and carries on.
If it drops a timestampable frame, it prints "Unexpected meta frame",
resets the state machine and carries on.
This doesn't happen under correct runtime conditions though.

What I meant was, consider how dropped frames in the MAC will spoil
any chance that the driver has to correctly match time stamps with
frames.

I think you are still looking at this through the perspective of
sequence numbers.
I am *not* proposing to add sequence numbers for link-local and for
meta in software, and then try to match them, as that would lead to
complete chaos as you're suggesting.
The switch has internal logic to not send any other frame to the CPU
between a link-local and a meta frame.
Hence, if the MAC of the DSA master drops some of these frames, it
does not "spoil any chance" except if, out of the sequence LL n ->
META n -> LL n+1 -> META n+1, it persistently drops only META n and LL
n+1. If it drops less than 2 frames, the system recovers. And if it
drops more, oh well, there are more pressing issues to deal with..
So I'd like to re-state the problem towards what should be done to
prevent LL and META frames getting reordered in the DSA master driver
on multi-queue/multi-core systems. At the most basic level, there
should exist a rule that makes only a single core process these
frames.

Regards,
-Vladimir

So this is guarantied by the switch?  What happens when multiple PTP
frames arrive at the same time on different ports?  Does the switch
buffer them and ensure strict ordering at the CPU port?

In any case, the switch's guarantee is an important fact to state
clearly in your series!

LL = link layer?

Ok.

This can be done simply using a data structure in the driver with an
appropriate locking mechanism.  Then you don't have to worry which
core the driver code runs on.

Yes, ports with lower index take priority.

Yes, link-local in this case means trapped frames in the
01-80-C2-xx-xx-xx or 01:1B:C9:xx:xx:xx space.

Actually you do. DSA is special because it is not the first net device
in the RX path that processes the frames. Something needs to be done
on the master port.

Before you said,

	the switch in its great wisdom mangles bytes 01-1B-19-xx-xx-00
	of the DMAC to place the switch id and source port there (a
	rudimentary tagging mechanism).

So why not simply save each frame in a per-switch/port data structure?

Now I'm starting to understand your series.  I think it can be done in
simpler way...

sja1105_rcv_meta_state_machine - can and should be at the driver level
and not at the port level.

sja1105_port_rxtstamp_work - isn't needed at all.

How about this?

1. When the driver receives a deferred PTP frame, save it into a
   per-switch,port slot at the driver (not port) level.

2. When the driver receives a META frame, match it to the
   per-switch,port slot.  If there is a PTP frame in that slot, then
   deliver it with the time stamp from the META frame.

Thanks,
Richard

Actually, since the switch guarantees strict ordering, you don't need
multiple slots.  You only need to save one Rx'd PTP frame with its
switch-id and port-id.

You mean to queue it and subvert DSA's own RX timestamping callback?
Why would I do that? Just so as not to introduce my .can_timestamp
callback?

One important aspect makes this need be a little bit more complicated:
reconstructing these RX timestamps.
You see, there is a mutex on the SPI bus, so in practice I do need the
sja1105_port_rxtstamp_work for exactly this purpose - to read the
timestamping clock over SPI.

Right, the .can_timestamp is unneeded, AFAICT.

Sure.  But you schedule the work after a META frame.  And no busy
waiting is needed.

Ok, I suppose this could work.
But now comes the question on what to do on error cases - the meta
frame didn't arrive. Should I just drop the skb waiting for it? Right
now I "goto rcv_anyway" - which linuxptp doesn't like btw.

Actually I've been there before, just forgot it.
It won't work unless I make changes to dsa_switch_rcv.
Right now taggers can only return a pointer to the skb, or NULL, case
in which DSA will free it.
I'd need a mechanism to signal DSA that I'm holding up the skb for a
little bit more time, then re-engage the dsa_switch_rcv path once the
meta frame arrived.

Yes, that is what other drivers do.

The application sees the missing time stamp and prints a warning
message.  This is IHMO the right thing to do, so that the user is made
aware of the degradation of the synchronization.

The tagger can re-write the skb.  Why not reform it into a PTP frame?
This clever trick is what the phyter does in hardware.  See dp83640.c.

I think you're missing the point here.
If I dress the meta frame into a PTP frame (btw is there any
preferable event message for this purpose?) then sure, I'll make
dsa_skb_defer_rx_timestamp call my .port_rxtstamp and I can e.g. move
my state machine there.
The problem is that in the current DSA structure, I'll still have less
timestampable frames waiting for a meta frame than meta frames
themselves. This is because not all frames that the switch takes an RX
timestamp for will make it to my .port_rxtstamp (in fact that is what
my .can_timestamp patch changes). I can put the timestampable frame in
a 1-entry wait queue which I'll deplete upon arrival of the first meta
frame, but when I get meta frames and the wait queue is empty, it can
mean multiple things: either DSA didn't care about this timestamp
(ok), or the timestampable frame got reordered or dropped by the MAC,
or what have you (not ok). So I can't exclude the possibility that the
meta frame was holding a relevant timestamp.
Sure, I can dress the meta frame into whatever the previous
MAC-trapped frame was (PTP or not) and then I'll have .port_rxtstamp
function see a 1-to-1 correspondence with meta frames in case
everything works fine. But then I'll have non-PTP meta frames leaking
up the stack...

Actually maybe this is exactly what you meant and I didn't think it through.
If RX timestamping is enabled, then I can just copy all MAC-trapped
frames to a private skb in a per-driver data structure, and have DSA
drop them.
Then when their meta frame arrives, I can just morph them into what
the previous frame was, just that now I'm also holding the partial
timestamp in skb->cb.
PTP frames will reconstruct the full timestamp without waiting for any
meta (they are the meta), while other MAC-trapped frames (STP etc)
will just carry a meaningless skb->cb when passed up the stack.
In retrospect, it would have been amazing if the switch gave me the
meta frames *before* the actual link-local frames that needed the
timestamp.

I would just make a L2 PTP event message from a specific source
address, just like the phyter does.

Use Ethertype ETH_P_1588 (0x88f7), and make sure the "general" bit
(0x8) of the messageType field (the first payload byte, at offset 14)
is clear.

dp83640.c uses a magic source address to identify a time stamping
status frame:

static u8 status_frame_src[6] = { 0x08, 0x00, 0x17, 0x0B, 0x6B, 0x0F };

I didn't follow everything you wrote, but it sounds like you are on
the right track!

Hi Richard,

I've been battling some issues with sja1105 PTP after you suggested me
to do this rework and eliminate the .can_tstamp callback.

Forget my reasoning above, I've done more digging and I think I have
better arguments now. Let me try to explain a catch-22:

- DSA doesn't let drivers to select which frames should be
timestamped. It knows better.

- To be precise, it runs the PTP BPF classifier and filters only the
SYNC (but not FOLLOW-UP) messages. In principle I agree, the FOLLOW-UP
frames are general messages and don't need to be timestamped for the
PTP protocol to work. But by that logic, the HWTSTAMP_FILTER_ALL
rx_filter shouldn't exist? See this commit message:

commit f75159e9936143177b442afc78150b7a7ad8aa07

    ptp: fix L2 event message recognition

    The IEEE 1588 standard defines two kinds of messages, event and general
    messages. Event messages require time stamping, and general do not. When
    using UDP transport, two separate ports are used for the two message
    types.

    The BPF designed to recognize event messages incorrectly classifies L2
    general messages as event messages. This commit fixes the issue by
    extending the filter to check the message type field for L2 PTP packets.
    Event messages are be distinguished from general messages by testing
    the "general" bit.

- Because it treats SYNC and FOLLOW-UP frames differently on the RX
path, it gives them a chance to get reordered. It doesn't give the
driver a chance to avoid the reordering. Both DSA drivers that support
PTP at the moment (sja1105 and mv88e6xxx) schedule a workqueue in the
.port_rxtstamp callback to collect the RX timestamp of the SYNC frame.
So the SYNC frame will get delayed, but the FOLLOW-UP will return as
false from dsa_skb_defer_rx_timestamp and be delivered immediately up
the stack.

- Without fully understanding what happens, I tried to propose better
logic for recovering reordered SYNC/FOLLOW-UP pairs at the application
level in linuxptp [1]. Needless to say, the consensus was to fix the
kernel. So here we are.

It time stamps the event frames.

FILTER_ALL means all event frames on all transports.  It has nothing
to do with event messages.

The re-ordering will occur no matter what.  Think about the UDP/IPv4
transport.  The event and general messages are on different ports!
The user space PTP must deal with message re-ordering.

There was no consensus to fix the kernel.  The kernel is fine.  Your
hardware is too slow to keep up with the very high message rate of the
telecom profiles.  Here are a few quotes from that discussion:

   ---
   Are you saying in a local network it's expected that a PTP slave
   receives the follow-up message one or more sync intervals after the
   corresponding sync message, e.g. a delay of 1 second with the default
   sync interval?
   
   I'd not consider such network to be suitable for PTP.
   ---
   I think it's expected that two messages sent within few microseconds or
   milliseconds can be received in a wrong order and PTP slaves need to
   handle that. But it's not expected that a message will be delayed so
   much that it will be received after a message that was sent one or
   more sync intervals later.
   ---
   I'd not expect to receive a follow-up message 30 milliseconds
   after the corresponding sync message. If the difference was getting to
   the millisecond range, I'd be worried that the network is so
   overloaded or misconfigured that it might drop some PTP messages.

Thanks,
Richard
