[PATCH RFC v3 16/21] arm64: psci: Ignore DENIED CPUs

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


From: Jean-Philippe Brucker <jean-philippe@xxxxxxxxxx>

When a CPU is marked as disabled, but online capable in the MADT, PSCI
applies some firmware policy to control when it can be brought online.
PSCI returns DENIED to a CPU_ON request if this is not currently
permitted. The OS can learn the current policy from the _STA enabled bit.

Handle the PSCI DENIED return code gracefully instead of printing an

See https://developer.arm.com/documentation/den0022/f/?lang=en page 58.

Changes since RFC v2
 * Add specification reference
 * Use EPERM rather than EPROBE_DEFER
Changes since RFC v3:
 * Use EPERM everywhere
 * Drop unnecessary changes to drivers/firmware/psci/psci.c
