I have  a discussion with Christian about this before .  The conclusion is that driver should prevent multiple process from using  the  MES ring at the same time . Also for current MES  ring usage ,driver doesn't have the  logic to prevent the ring  been  overflowed and we doesn't hit the issue because MES will wait polling for each MES submission . If we want to change the MES to work asynchronously , we need to consider a way to avoid this (similar to add the limit in the fence handling we use for kiq and  HMM paging)

I think we need a separate fence (different GPU address and seq
number) per request.  Then each caller can wait independently.

Well no, we need to modify the MES firmware to stop abusing the fence as signaling mechanism for the result of an operation.

I've pointed that out before and I think this is a hard requirement for correct operation.

Additional to that retrying on the reset flag looks like another broken workaround to me.

So just to make it clear this approach is a NAK from my side, don't commit that.

Well that's certainly not correct. The seqno takes care that we can wait async for the submission to complete.

So clear NAK for that patch here.


For now, add a mutex lock to serialize the MES submission.
For SR-IOV long-wait case, break the long-wait to separated part to
prevent this wait from impacting reset sequence.
