Subject[PATCH v5 00/19] arch_topology: Updates to add socket support and fix cluster ids
Hi All,

This version updates cacheinfo to populate and use the information from
there for all the cache topology.

This series intends to fix some discrepancies we have in the CPU topology
parsing from the device tree /cpu-map node. Also this diverges from the
behaviour on a ACPI enabled platform. The expectation is that both DT
and ACPI enabled systems must present consistent view of the CPU topology.

Currently we assign generated cluster count as the physical package identifier
for each CPU which is wrong. The device tree bindings for CPU topology supports
sockets to infer the socket or physical package identifier for a given CPU.
Also we don't check if all the cores/threads belong to the same cluster before
updating their sibling masks which is fine as we don't set the cluster id yet.

These changes also assigns the cluster identifier as parsed from the device tree
cluster nodes within /cpu-map without support for nesting of the clusters.
Finally, it also add support for socket nodes in /cpu-map. With this the
parsing of exact same information from ACPI PPTT and /cpu-map DT node
aligns well.

The only exception is that the last level cache id information can be
inferred from the same ACPI PPTT while we need to parse CPU cache nodes
in the device tree.

Hi Greg,

I had not cc-ed you on first 3 versions as we had some disagreement
amongst Arm developers which we have now(since v4) settled. Let me know
how you want to merge this once you agree with the changes. I can send
pull request if you prefer. Let me know.

- Added all the tags recieved so far. Rafael has acked only change
in ACPI and Catalin has acked only change in arm64.
- Addressed all the typos pointed by Ionela and dropped the patch
removing the checks for invalid package id as discussed and update
depth in nested cluster warning check.

- Updated ACPI PPTT fw_token to use table offset instead of virtual
address as it could get changed for everytime it is mapped before
the global acpi_permanent_mmap is set
- Added warning for the topology with nested clusters
- Added update to cpu_clustergroup_mask so that introduction of
correct cluster_id doesn't break existing platforms by limiting
the span of clustergroup_mask(by Ionela)

- Dropped support to get the device node for the CPU's LLC
- Updated cacheinfo to support calling of detect_cache_attributes
early in smp_prepare_cpus stage
- Added support to check if LLC is valid and shared in the cacheinfo
- Used the same in arch_topology

- Updated ID validity check include all non-negative value
- Added support to get the device node for the CPU's last level cache
- Added support to build llc_sibling on DT platforms


Ionela Voinescu (1):
arch_topology: Limit span of cpu_clustergroup_mask()

Sudeep Holla (18):
ACPI: PPTT: Use table offset as fw_token instead of virtual address
cacheinfo: Use of_cpu_device_node_get instead cpu_dev->of_node
cacheinfo: Add helper to access any cache index for a given CPU
cacheinfo: Move cache_leaves_are_shared out of CONFIG_OF
cacheinfo: Add support to check if last level cache(LLC) is valid or shared
cacheinfo: Allow early detection and population of cache attributes
cacheinfo: Use cache identifiers to check if the caches are shared if available
arch_topology: Add support to parse and detect cache attributes
arch_topology: Use the last level cache information from the cacheinfo
arm64: topology: Remove redundant setting of llc_id in CPU topology
arch_topology: Drop LLC identifier stash from the CPU topology
arch_topology: Set thread sibling cpumask only within the cluster
arch_topology: Check for non-negative value rather than -1 for IDs validity
arch_topology: Avoid parsing through all the CPUs once a outlier CPU is found
arch_topology: Don't set cluster identifier as physical package identifier
arch_topology: Set cluster identifier in each core/thread from /cpu-map
arch_topology: Add support for parsing sockets in /cpu-map
arch_topology: Warn that topology for nested clusters is not supported
