Subject[PATCH] PCI: designware: add a check of msi_desc in irqchip
From: Zou Cao <>

When PCIE host setup, 32 MSI irq descriptions are created, but its
msi_desc is NULL, msi_desc is bound in MSI irq requested by PCI device,
normally just part of MSI are used, for others not used MSI irqs, its
msi_desc is NULL, it is dangerous for MSI irq mask when MSI irq mask use
the msi_desc to mask irq without checking, normally not used MSI irqs are
never masked, it looks fine, but in some specified case, such as kdump,
machine_kexec_mask_interrupts will force to mask these not used MSI irqs,
than a crash will happen with NULL msi_desc. it is necessary to add check
of msi_desc in irqchip, if we still bind the msi_desc only in irqs request
and mask MSI irq by msi_desc.

Add dwc_pci_msi_mask/unmask_irq, so we can get a chance to check the

here is reproduced crash log in IMX7-SABER board with Intel 1030 PCI,
when running kdump by "echo c > /proc/sysrq-trigger":
