Subject[PATCH 5.10 023/105] drm/amdgpu: check vm ready by amdgpu_vm->evicting flag
From: Qiang Yu <>

[ Upstream commit c1a66c3bc425ff93774fb2f6eefa67b83170dd7e ]

Workstation application ANSA/META v21.1.4 get this error dmesg when
running CI test suite provided by ANSA/META:
[drm:amdgpu_gem_va_ioctl [amdgpu]] *ERROR* Couldn't update BO_VA (-16)

This is caused by:
1. create a 256MB buffer in invisible VRAM
2. CPU map the buffer and access it causes vm_fault and try to move
it to visible VRAM
3. force visible VRAM space and traverse all VRAM bos to check if
evicting this bo is valuable
4. when checking a VM bo (in invisible VRAM), amdgpu_vm_evictable()
will set amdgpu_vm->evicting, but latter due to not in visible
VRAM, won't really evict it so not add it to amdgpu_vm->evicted
5. before next CS to clear the amdgpu_vm->evicting, user VM ops
ioctl will pass amdgpu_vm_ready() (check amdgpu_vm->evicted)
but fail in amdgpu_vm_bo_update_mapping() (check
amdgpu_vm->evicting) and get this error log

This error won't affect functionality as next CS will finish the
waiting VM ops. But we'd better clear the error log by checking
the amdgpu_vm->evicting flag in amdgpu_vm_ready() to stop calling
amdgpu_vm_bo_update_mapping() later.

Another reason is amdgpu_vm->evicted list holds all BOs (both
user buffer and page table), but only page table BOs' eviction
prevent VM ops. amdgpu_vm->evicting flag is set only for page
table BOs, so we should use evicting flag instead of evicted list
in amdgpu_vm_ready().

The side effect of this change is: previously blocked VM op (user
buffer in "evicted" list but no page table in it) gets done

v2: update commit comments.
