[PATCH RFC v4 10/15] 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 will
complicate 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
| CPU4: mpidr 100 has no re-distributor!

Changes since RFC v3 (smaller series):
 * Move acpi_gicc_is_usable() change in gic_acpi_match_gicc() into
   following patch so this is only about the error return.
 * Tweak commit message
