I guess we need something like:

         if (device->status.present)
                 return device->device_type != ACPI_BUS_TYPE_PROCESSOR ||
                 return device->status.functional;

so we only check device->status.enabled for processor-type devices?

Yes, something like this.

However, that is not sufficient, because there are
ACPI_BUS_TYPE_DEVICE devices representing processors.

I'm not sure about a clean way to do it ATM.

Ok, how about:

static bool acpi_dev_is_processor(const struct acpi_device *device)
	struct acpi_hardware_id *hwid;

	if (device->device_type == ACPI_BUS_TYPE_PROCESSOR)
		return true;

	if (device->device_type != ACPI_BUS_TYPE_DEVICE)
		return false;

	list_for_each_entry(hwid, &device->pnp.ids, list)
		if (!strcmp(ACPI_PROCESSOR_OBJECT_HID, hwid->id) ||
		    !strcmp(ACPI_PROCESSOR_DEVICE_HID, hwid->id))
			return true;

	return false;

and then:

	if (device->status.present)
		return !acpi_dev_is_processor(device) || device->status.enabled;
		return device->status.functional;

Changing it to CPU only for now makes sense to me and I think this code snippet should do the
job.  Nice and simple.

Well, except that it does checks that are done elsewhere slightly
differently, which from the maintenance POV is not nice.

Maybe something like the appended patch (untested).

Hi Rafael,

As far as I can see that's functionally equivalent, so looks good to me.
I'm not set up to test this today though, so will defer to Russell on whether
there is anything missing

Thanks for putting this together.

This is rather embarrassing...

I span this up on a QEMU instance with some prints to find out we need
the !acpi_device_is_processor() restriction.
On my 'random' test setup it fails on one device. ACPI0017 - which I
happen to know rather well. It's the weird pseudo device that lets
a CXL aware OS know there is a CEDT table to probe.

Whilst I really don't like that hack (it is all about making software
distribution of out of tree modules easier rather than something
fundamental), I'm the CXL QEMU maintainer :(

Will fix that, but it shows there is at least one broken firmware out

On plus side, Rafael's code seems to work as expected and lets that
buggy firwmare carry on working :) So lets pretend the bug in qemu
is a deliberate test case!

Lol, thanks for a test case and showing that Rafael's approach is
indeed necessary.

Would your test quality for a tested-by for this? For reference, this
is my current version below with Rafael's update:

From: Russell King (Oracle) <rmk+kernel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
Subject: [PATCH] ACPI: Only enumerate enabled (or functional) processor

From: James Morse <james.morse@xxxxxxx>

Today the ACPI enumeration code 'visits' all devices that are present.

This is a problem for arm64, where CPUs are always present, but not
always enabled. When a device-check occurs because the firmware-policy
has changed and a CPU is now enabled, the following error occurs:
| acpi ACPI0007:48: Enumeration failure

This is ultimately because acpi_dev_ready_for_enumeration() returns
true for a device that is not enabled. The ACPI Processor driver
will not register such CPUs as they are not 'decoding their resources'.

ACPI allows a device to be functional instead of maintaining the
present and enabled bit, but we can't simply check the enabled bit
for all devices since firmware can be buggy.

If ACPI indicates that the device is present and enabled, then all well
and good, we can enumate it. However, if the device is present and not
enabled, then we also check whether the device is a processor device
to limit the impact of this new check to just processor devices.

This avoids enumerating present && functional processor devices that
are not enabled.

It may be worthy to replace 'if enabled is set' with 'if the enabled bit is set',
to be consistent with the terminologies used in the above comments.

Apart from it, the patch itself looks good to me.
