[edk2-devel] [PATCH] MdeModulePkg/Bus/Pci/PciBusDxe: Increase the width of the data read during oprom shadow

Posted by Sumana Venur 3 months, 4 weeks ago
REF: https://bugzilla.tianocore.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2989

Long times spent on shadowing oprom from graphics card to system memory. We are currently using 8 bit read cycles.
This needs to be wider, at least 32bit (even 64bit) reads to reduce the time for oprom shadow

This has three bugs:

(1) From the UEFI specification v2.8B,
EFI_PCI_ROOT_BRIDGE_IO_PROTOCOL.Mem.Read():

    The caller is responsible for satisfying any alignment and memory
    width restrictions that a PCI Root Bridge on a platform might
    require. For example on some platforms, width requests of
    EfiPciWidthUint64 do not work.

I don't think the patch ensures that EfiPciWidthUint64 is safe on the
particular platform.

(2) RomImageSize (the Count parameter) is expressed in bytes, currently.
If you scale up the access width, you have to scale down the access count.

(3) If you use an access size that is larger than 1 byte, you have to
handle the tail separately. For example, if the access width is
EfiPciWidthUint32, and the ROM image size is (4*k+3) bytes, then the
tail needs to be handled separately.

I have submitted an updated patch.
1. Reduced the width to 32 to be safer
2. Sorry about not scaling the count down, missed it while preparing patch.
3. According to Pci Firmware Spec 3.0, section 5.1.2 Expansion Rom Image length is in units of 512 bytes, so I understand that we dont need to handle the tail
