[PATCH 1/3] drm/msm/dp: Avoid a long timeout for AUX transfer if nothing connected

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


As documented in the description of the transfer() function of
"struct drm_dp_aux", the transfer() function can be called at any time
regardless of the state of the DP port. Specifically if the kernel has
the DP AUX character device enabled and userspace accesses
"/dev/drm_dp_auxN" directly then the AUX transfer function will be
called regardless of whether a DP device is connected.

For eDP panels we have a special rule where we wait (with a 5 second
timeout) for HPD to go high. This rule was important before all panels
drivers were converted to call wait_hpd_asserted() and actually can be
removed in a future commit.

For external DP devices we never checked for HPD. That means that
trying to access the DP AUX character device (AKA `hexdump -C
/dev/drm_dp_auxN`) would very, very slowly timeout. Specifically on my
  $ time hexdump -C /dev/drm_dp_aux0
  hexdump: /dev/drm_dp_aux0: Connection timed out

  real    0m8.200s

Let's add a check for HPD to avoid the slow timeout. This matches
what, for instance, the intel_dp_aux_xfer() function does when it
calls intel_tc_port_connected_locked(). That call has a document by it
explaining that it's important to avoid the long timeouts.
