From: Leon Romanovsky <leonro@nvidia.com>

Hi Dave and Jakub,

This series prepares code to remove devlink_reload_enable/_disable API
and in order to do, we move all devlink_register() calls to be right
before devlink_reload_enable().

The best place for such a call should be right before exiting from
the probe().

This is done because devlink_register() opens devlink netlink to the
users and gives them a venue to issue commands before initialization
is finished.

1. Some drivers were aware of such "functionality" and tried to protect
themselves with extra locks, state machines and devlink_reload_enable().
Let's assume that it worked for them, but I'm personally skeptical about
it.

2. Some drivers copied that pattern, but without locks and state
machines. That protected them from reload flows, but not from any _set_
routines.

3. And all other drivers simply didn't understand the implications of early
devlink_register() and can be seen as "broken".

In this series, we focus on items #1 and #2.

Please share your opinion if I should change ALL other drivers to make
sure that devlink_register() is the last command or leave them in an
as-is state.

Thanks

From: Leon Romanovsky <leonro@nvidia.com>

The devlink pointer always exists after hclge_devlink_init() succeed.
Remove that check together with NULL setting after release and ensure
that devlink_register is last command prior to call to devlink_reload_enable().

From: Leon Romanovsky <leonro@nvidia.com>

The change of devlink_alloc() to accept device makes sure that device
is fully initialized and device_register() does nothing except allowing
users to use that devlink instance.

Such change ensures that no user input will be usable till that point and
it eliminates the need to worry about internal locking as long as devlink_register
is called last since all accesses to the devlink are during initialization.

This change fixes the following lockdep warning.

What are those implications for drivers which don't implement reload?
Depending on which parts of devlink the drivers implement there may well
be nothing to worry about.

Plus devlink instances start out with reload disabled. Could you please
take a step back and explain why these changes are needed.

Can you please share the output of devlink monitor and ip monitor link
before and after?  The modified drivers will not register ports before
they register the devlink instance itself.

The problem is that devlink_register() adds new devlink instance to the
list of visible devlinks (devlink_list). It means that all devlink_*_dumpit()
will try to access devices during their initialization, before they are ready.

The more troublesome case is that devlink_list is iterated in the
devlink_get_from_attrs() and it is used in devlink_nl_pre_doit(). The
latter function will return to the caller that new devlink is valid and
such caller will be able to proceed to *_set_doit() functions.

Just as an example:
 * user sends netlink message
  * devlink_nl_cmd_eswitch_set_doit()
   * ops->eswitch_mode_set()
    * Are you sure that all drivers protected here?
      I remind that driver is in the middle of its probe().

Someone can argue that drivers and devlink are protected from anything
harmful with their global (devlink_mutex and devlink->lock) and internal
(device->lock, e.t.c.) locks. However it is impossible to prove for all
drivers and prone to errors.

Reload enable/disable gives false impression that the problem exists in
that flow only, which is not true.

devlink_reload_enable() is a duct tape because reload flows much easier
to hit.

Not really, they will register but won't be accessible from the user space.
The only difference is the location of "[dev,new] ..." notification.

Is that because of mlx5's use of auxdev, or locking? I don't see
anything that should prevent the port notification from coming out.

I think the notifications need to get straightened out, we can't notify
about sub-objects until the object is registered, since they are
inaccessible.

And it is ok, kernel can (and does) send notifications, because we left
devlink_ops assignment to be in devlink_alloc(). It ensures that all
flows that worked before will continue to work without too much changes.

I'm not sure about that. You present the case where kernel and user
space races against each other and historically kernel doesn't protect
from such flows. 

For example, you can randomly remove and add kernel modules. At some
point of time, you will get "missing symbols errors", just because
one module tries to load and it depends on already removed one.

We must protect kernel and this is what I do. User shouldn't access
devlink instance before he sees "dev name" notification.

Of course, we can move various iterators to devlink_register(), but it
will make code much complex, because we have objects that can be
registered at any time (IMHO. trap is one of them) and I will need to 
implement notification logic that separate objects that were created
before devlink_register and after.

Thanks

Bottom line,
I'm trying to make code simpler, not opposite :).

Sure. But there is a difference between an error because another
actor did something conflicting, asynchronously, and API which by design
sends notifications which can't be acted upon until later point in time,
because kernel sent them too early.

Which is a new rule, and therefore a uAPI change..

I appreciate it's a PITA but it is the downside of a solution where
registration of co-dependent objects exposed via devlink is reordered 
in the kernel.

No problem, I will rewrite notification logic to be queue-based mechanism.

Thanks

I thought about it more and realized what we can make registration
monitor notifications behave as before, we can't do it for unregister
path.

For register, we can buffer all notifications till devlink_register
comes, use it as a marker and release everything that was accumulated
till that point. Everything that will come later will be delivered
immediately.

It will give "dev name ..." print at the beginning as you want.

For unregister, this trick won't work because we don't know if any other
devlink unregister API is used after devlink_unregister. So we can't
delay notifications.

Even if we can, it will be even worse from user perspective, because
in such case devlink_unregister() will close netlink access without
notifying user and he won't understand why ports don't work (as an
example).

Jakub, you are over engineering here and solve non-existing problem.

> Which is a new rule, and therefore a uAPI change..

AFAIR, netlink can be out-of-order, because it is UDP, but it is just
impractical to see it in the real-life. So no, it is not new rule.

Thanks
