[PATCH v2 1/6] mips: dmi: Fix early remap on MIPS32

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


dmi_early_remap() has been defined as ioremap_cache() which on MIPS32 gets
to be converted to the VM-based mapping. DMI early remapping is performed
at the setup_arch() stage with no VM available. So calling the
dmi_early_remap() for MIPS32 causes the system to crash at the early boot
time. Fix that by converting dmi_early_remap() to the uncached remapping
which is always available on both 32 and 64-bits MIPS systems.

Note this change shall not cause any regressions on the current DMI
support implementation because on the early boot-up stage neither MIPS32
nor MIPS64 has the cacheable ioremapping support anyway.

Fixes: be8fa1cb444c ("MIPS: Add support for Desktop Management Interface (DMI)")

Note even though this patch is fully correct from the current
ioremap()-based semantics point of view and shall fix the denoted problem,
Jiaxun thinks that it's better to provide a different fix since
dmi_early_remap() doesn't work correctly on even Loongson64 - the only
currently DMI-equipped platform. In v1 discussion he promised to provide a
better fix for the problem. Until then let's consider this patch as the
only currently available solution.

Changelog v2:
- Replace ioremap_uc() with using ioremap() due to having the former one
  deprecated. (@Arnd)
- Extend patch log with a note regarding the unsynched caches concern.
