[PATCH 0/3] platform/x86: intel_scu_ipc: Timeout fixes

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


I recently looked at some crash reports on ChromeOS devices that call
into this intel_scu_ipc driver. They were hitting timeouts, and it
certainly looks possible for those timeouts to be triggering because of
scheduling issues. Once things started going south, the timeouts kept
coming. Maybe that's because the other side got seriously confused? I
don't know. I'll poke at it some more by injecting timeouts on the
kernel side.

The first two patches are only lightly tested (normal functions keep
working), while the third one is purely speculation. I was going to make
the interrupt delay for a long time to see if I could hit the timeout.

Stephen Boyd (3):
  platform/x86: intel_scu_ipc: Check status after timeouts in
  platform/x86: intel_scu_ipc: Check status upon timeout in
  platform/x86: intel_scu_ipc: Fail IPC send if still busy
