[PATCH v2 1/3] platform/x86: intel_scu_ipc: Check status after timeout in busy_loop()

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


It's possible for the polling loop in busy_loop() to get scheduled away
for a long time.

  status = ipc_read_status(scu); // status = IPC_STATUS_BUSY
  <long time scheduled away>
  if (!(status & IPC_STATUS_BUSY))

If this happens, then the status bit could change while the task is
scheduled away and this function would never read the status again after
timing out. Instead, the function will return -ETIMEDOUT when it's
possible that scheduling didn't work out and the status bit was cleared.
Bit polling code should always check the bit being polled one more time
after the timeout in case this happens.

Fix this by reading the status once more after the while loop breaks.

This is sufficiently busy so I didn't add any tags from previous round.
