I have some concerns about this patch. One thing we must ensure is that
the machine does not poke freed memory (NIB, GISA). With the current
design that means we must ensure that there won't be any interruption
conditions indicated (and interrupts made pending) after this point.

I'm not entirely convinced this is ensured after your change. The
relevant bits of the documentation are particularly hard to figure out.
I could use some clarifications for sure.

This hunk removes the wait implemented by vfio_ap_wait_for_irqclear()
along with the hopefully overkill AQIC.

Let me name some of the scenarios I'm concerned about, along with the
code that is currently supposed to handle these.


int vfio_ap_mdev_reset_queue(unsigned int apid, unsigned int apqi,
unsigned int retry)
{
struct ap_queue_status status;
int retry2 = 2;
int apqn = AP_MKQID(apid, apqi);

do {
status = ap_zapq(apqn);
switch (status.response_code) {
case AP_RESPONSE_NORMAL:
while (!status.queue_empty && retry2--) {
msleep(20);
status = ap_tapq(apqn, NULL);
}
WARN_ON_ONCE(retry <= 0);
return 0;
case AP_RESPONSE_RESET_IN_PROGRESS:
case AP_RESPONSE_BUSY:
msleep(20);
break;
default:
/* things are really broken, give up */
return -EIO;
}
} while (retry--);

return -EBUSY;

Scenario 1)

ap_zapq() returns status.response_code == AP_RESPONSE_RESET_IN_PROGRESS,
because for example G2 did a ZAPQ before us.

The current logic retries ap_zapq() once after 20 msec. I have no idea
if that is sufficient under all circumstances. If we get a
AP_RESPONSE_RESET_IN_PROGRESS again, we return with -EBUSY and do nothing
about it if the whole process was triggered by vfio_ap_mdev_release().
Not even a warning.

Please notice that this was almost fine before IRQ support, because the
queue will get reset ASAP, and ...

Scenario 2)

It takes longer than 40 msec for the reset to complete. I don't know if
this is a possibility, but before your patch we used to wait of 1 sec.

I guess the we need the timeouts because do this with matrix_dev->lock
held. I'm not sure it's a good idea long term.

Scenario 3)

ap_zapq() returns status.response_code == AP_RESPONSE_DECONFIGURED. In
this case we would give up right away. Again so that we don't even know
we hit this case. There ain't much I can think about we could do here.

I hope we are guaranteed to not get any bits set at this point, but I could
use some help.

*

The good thing is I'm pretty sure that we are safe (i.e. no bits will be
poked by the hardware) after seeing the queue empty after we issued a
reset request.

So my concerns basically boil down to are the cumulative timeouts big enough
so we never time out (including are timeouts really the way to go)?

We should probably take any discussion about from which point on is it safe
to assume that NIB and GISA won't be poked by HW offline as the guys
without documentation can't contribute.


Two issues not directly related to your patch. I formulated those as two
follow up patches on top of yours .please take a look at them.

Subject: [PATCH 1/2] s390: vfio-ap: fix warning reset not completed

The intention seems to be to warn once when we don't wait enough for the
reset to complete. Let's use the right retry counter to accomplish that
semantic.

Subject: [PATCH 2/2] s390: vfio-ap: don't wait after AQIC interpretation
Waiting for the asynchronous part of AQIC to complete as a part
AQIC implementation is unnecessary and silly.

Let's get rid of vfio_ap_wait_for_irqclear().
