Hi all,
I'm seeing a strange "no MSI-X interrupt" issue with the Mellanox NIC
driver on a physical Linux host [1], if I only enable part of the CPUs.

The physical host has 104 logical processors (2 sockets, and each socket
has 26 cores with HT enabled). By default, the Mellanox driver works fine
when Linux boots up.

If I only use 1, 2, 32, 64, 96 processors by the Linux kernel parameter
"maxcpus=X" or "nr_cpus=X", everthing still works fine.

However, if the Linux host OS only uses 4, 8 or 16 processors, the
mlx5_core driver fails to load as it can not receive interrupt when
creating EQ (maxcpus=8 or 16), or the driver can load but it reports a
timeout error when I try to bring the NIC up (maxcpus=4). This issue is
a 100% repro.

For example, with "maxcpus=8", I get the below timeout error when trying
to load mlx5_core:

# modprobe mlx5_core

When this happens, the mlx5_core driver is stuck with the below
call-trace, waiting for some interrupt:

To make the issue even weirder, when the issue happens (e.g. when Linux
only uses 8 processors), if I manually bring CPU #8~#31 online [2] and
then bring them offline [3], the Mellanox driver will work fine!

This is a x86-64 host. Is it possibe that the IOMMU Interrrupt Remapping
is not proprely set up with maxcpus=4, 8 and 16?

The above tests were done with the recent Linux v5.14-rc1 kernel. I also
tried Ubuntu 20.04's kernel "5.4.0-77-generic", and the Mellanox driver
exhibits exactly the same issue.

I have Linux/Windows dual-boot on this physical machine, and Windows
doesn't have the issue when I let it only use 4, 8 and 16 processors.
So this looks like somehow the issue is specific to Linux.

Can someone please shed some light on this strange issue? I'm ready
to provide more logs if needed. Thanks!

PS, the physical machine has 4 NVMe controllers and 4 Broadcom NICs,
which are not affected by maxcpus=4, 8, and 16.

(+ the linux-pci list)

It turns out that adding "intremap=off" can work around the issue!

The root cause is still not clear yet. I don't know why Windows is good here.

The card is stuck in the FW, maybe Saeed knows why. I tried your
scenario and it worked for me.

I don't think the FW is stuck since we see the cmd completion after
timeout, this means that the 1st interrupt from the device got lost.

"wait_func_handle_exec_timeout:1062:(pid 1416): cmd[0]:
CREATE_EQ(0x301) recovered after timeout"

the fact that this happens on  5.14 and 5.4 kernels and the issue is
worked around via bringing the cpus online, or disabling intremap,
means that there is something wrong with the interrupt remapping
mechanism, maybe the interrupt is being delivered on an offline cpu ? 
is this a qemu/VM guest or a bare metal host ?

Thanks for the replies! 

This is a bare metal x86-64 host with Intel CPUs. Yes, I believe the
issue is in the IOMMU Interrupt Remapping mechanism rather in the
NIC driver. I just don't understand why bringing the CPUs online and
offline can work around the issue. I'm trying to dump the IOMMU IR
table entries to look for any error. 

Thanks,
Dexuan

can you please enable GENERIC_IRQ_DEBUGFS and provide the output of

cat /sys/kernel/debug/irq/irqs/$THENICIRQS

Thanks,

Sorry for the late response! I checked the below sys file, and the output is
exactly the same in the good/bad cases -- in both cases, I use maxcpus=8;
the only difference in the good case is that I online and then offline CPU 8~31:
for i in `seq 8 31`;  do echo 1 >  /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu$i/online; done
for i in `seq 8 31`;  do echo 0 >  /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu$i/online; done

I tried the kernel parameter "intremap=nosid,no_x2apic_optout,nopost" but
it didn't help. Only "intremap=off" can work round the no interrupt issue.

When the no interrupt issue happens, irq 209's effective_affinity_list is 5.
I modified modify_irte() to print the irte->low, irte->high, and I also printed
the irte_index for irq 209, and they were all normal to me, and they were
exactly the same in the bad case and the good case -- it looks like, with
"intremap=on maxcpus=8", MSI-X on CPU5 can't work for the NIC device
(MSI-X on CPU5 works for other devices like a NVMe controller) , and somehow
"onlining and then offlining CPU 8~31" can "fix" the issue, which is really weird.

Thanks,
Dexuan

I didn't know about this. Thanks for the reply!

With maxcpus=8, on CPU 5, the NIC receives no interrupt, but a NVMe
interrupt ("INTEL-IR-6") on the CPU works, and two "IOAT" interrupts 
("INTEL-IR-7") also work.

Except the NIC, the only IRQs connected to the faulty IOMMU3 are
irq33 and irq34:

irq 33 doesn't appear in /proc/interupts.
irq 34 in /proc/interupts also receives no interrupts.

So it looks like IOMMU3 is somehow not working at all
with maxcpus=8. "onlining and offlining CPU 8~31" can
somehow "fix" it. :-) I'm not sure if this is a kernel issue
or firmware issue.

Thanks,
Dexuan

Yes, that looks correct.

Just for the record: maxcpus=N is a dangerous boot option as it leaves
the non brought up CPUs in a state where they can be hit by MCE
broadcasting without being able to act on it. Which means you're
operating the system out of spec.

According to your debug output the interrupt in question belongs to the
INTEL-IR-3 interrupt domain, which means it hangs of IOMMU3, aka DMAR
unit 3.

To which DMAR/remap unit are the other unaffected devices connected to?

Thanks,

        tglx
