[PATCH RFC v3 15/21] irqchip/gic-v3: Add support for ACPI's disabled but 'online capable' CPUs

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


From: James Morse <james.morse@xxxxxxx>

To support virtual CPU hotplug, ACPI has added an 'online capable' bit
to the MADT GICC entries. This indicates a disabled CPU entry may not
be possible to online via PSCI until firmware has set enabled bit in

What about the redistributor in the GICC entry? ACPI doesn't want to say.
Assume the worst: When a redistributor is described in the GICC entry,
but the entry is marked as disabled at boot, assume the redistributor
is inaccessible.

The GICv3 driver doesn't support late online of redistributors, so this
means the corresponding CPU can't be brought online either. Clear the
possible and present bits.

Systems that want CPU hotplug in a VM can ensure their redistributors
are always-on, and describe them that way with a GICR entry in the MADT.

When mapping redistributors found via GICC entries, handle the case
where the arch code believes the CPU is present and possible, but it
does not have an accessible redistributor. Print a warning and clear
the present and possible bits.

Disabled but online-capable CPUs cause this message to be printed
if their redistributors are described via GICC:
| GICv3: CPU 3's redistributor is inaccessible: this CPU can't be brought online

If ACPI's _STA tries to make the cpu present later, this message is printed:
| Changing CPU present bit is not supported
