Subject[PATCH 5.3 253/344] powerpc/imc: Dont create debugfs files for cpu-less nodes
From: Madhavan Srinivasan <>

commit 41ba17f20ea835c489e77bd54e2da73184e22060 upstream.

Commit <684d984038aa> ('powerpc/powernv: Add debugfs interface for
imc-mode and imc') added debugfs interface for the nest imc pmu
devices to support changing of different ucode modes. Primarily adding
this capability for debug. But when doing so, the code did not
consider the case of cpu-less nodes. So when reading the _cmd_ or
_mode_ file of a cpu-less node will create this crash.

Patch fixes the issue with a more robust check for vbase to NULL.

Before patch, ls output for the debugfs imc directory

# ls /sys/kernel/debug/powerpc/imc/
imc_cmd_0 imc_cmd_251 imc_cmd_253 imc_cmd_255 imc_mode_0 imc_mode_251 imc_mode_253 imc_mode_255
imc_cmd_250 imc_cmd_252 imc_cmd_254 imc_cmd_8 imc_mode_250 imc_mode_252 imc_mode_254 imc_mode_8

After patch, ls output for the debugfs imc directory

# ls /sys/kernel/debug/powerpc/imc/
imc_cmd_0 imc_cmd_8 imc_mode_0 imc_mode_8

Actual bug here is that, we have two loops with potentially different
loop counts. That is, in imc_get_mem_addr_nest(), loop count is
obtained from the dt entries. But in case of export_imc_mode_and_cmd(),
loop was based on for_each_nid() count. Patch fixes the loop count in
latter based on the struct mem_info. Ideally it would be better to
have array size in struct imc_pmu.
