Subject: [5.14-rc1] mlx5_core receives no interrupts with maxcpus=8
Date: Thu, 15 Jul 2021 00:38:56 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <BYAPR21MB12703228F3E7A8B8158EB054BF129@BYAPR21MB1270.namprd21.prod.outlook.com> (raw)

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.
