[PATCH RFC v3 14/21] irqchip/gic-v3: Don't return errors from gic_acpi_match_gicc()

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


From: James Morse <james.morse@xxxxxxx>

gic_acpi_match_gicc() is only called via gic_acpi_count_gicr_regions().
It should only count the number of enabled redistributors, but it
also tries to sanity check the GICC entry, currently returning an
error if the Enabled bit is set, but the gicr_base_address is zero.

Adding support for the online-capable bit to the sanity check
complicates it, for no benefit. The existing check implicitly
depends on gic_acpi_count_gicr_regions() previous failing to find
any GICR regions (as it is valid to have gicr_base_address of zero if
the redistributors are described via a GICR entry).

Instead of complicating the check, remove it. Failures that happen
at this point cause the irqchip not to register, meaning no irqs
can be requested. The kernel grinds to a panic() pretty quickly.

Without the check, MADT tables that exhibit this problem are still
caught by gic_populate_rdist(), which helpfully also prints what
went wrong:
| CPU4: mpidr 100 has no re-distributor!
