[edk2-devel] [PATCH v2 2/4] DynamicTablesPkg: Add SMBIOS table dispatcher
Posted by Sami Mujawar 1 year, 2 months ago
Some SMBIOS structure/table fields have dependency on other SMBIOS
structures/tables. These dependencies are established using handles
pointing to the dependent tables.

A SMBIOS table handle can be obtained by either installing a SMBIOS
table or by allocating a handle, which requires complex management
to avoid any clashes.

Obtaining a SMBIOS handle by installation requires that the dependent
table is installed before the parent SMBIOS table can be installed.
Therefore, introduce a SMBIOS table dispatcher that walks the SMBIOS
dependency list and schedules the dependent tables to be installed
before the parent table is installed.

Notes:
    v2:
     - Update dispatcher state machine to remove StUnknown.    [SAMI]
     - Move extern function to header file and move debug      [ABNER]
       code together.
     - Updated code based on review feedback to move extern    [SAMI]
       function to header file and also moved the debug code
       together.

+  The SMBIOS dispatcher state table.
+
+  The SMBIOS dispatcher state table is used to establish the dependency
+  order in which the SMBIOS tables are installed. This allows the SMBIOS
+  dispatcher to dispatch the dependent tables for installation before the
+  parent table is installed.
+  The SMBIOS_TABLE_DISPATCHER.Dependency[] field is used to establish the
+  dependency list.
+  Elements in the Dependency list are resolved by increasing index. However,
+  all orders are equivalent as:
+  - the Parent SMBIOS table will only be installed once all dependencies
+    have been satisfied.
+  - no cyclic dependency is allowed.
+  The dependency list is terminated by SMTT_NULL.

Re: [edk2-devel] [PATCH v2 2/4] DynamicTablesPkg: Add SMBIOS table dispatcher
Posted by Girish Mahadevan via groups.io 1 year, 2 months ago
Hi Sami

Thanks for v2, I will apply these to my tree and test it out.
One small comment before I review/test the patch train inline (prefixed 
by [GM])

Best Regards
Girish

> +  The SMBIOS dispatcher state table.
> +
> +  The SMBIOS dispatcher state table is used to establish the dependency
> +  order in which the SMBIOS tables are installed. This allows the SMBIOS
> +  dispatcher to dispatch the dependent tables for installation before the
> +  parent table is installed.
> +  The SMBIOS_TABLE_DISPATCHER.Dependency[] field is used to establish the
> +  dependency list.
> +  Elements in the Dependency list are resolved by increasing index. However,
> +  all orders are equivalent as:
> +  - the Parent SMBIOS table will only be installed once all dependencies
> +    have been satisfied.
> +  - no cyclic dependency is allowed.
> +  The dependency list is terminated by SMTT_NULL.

Hi Sami


Thanks for v2, I will apply these to my tree and test it out.
One small comment before I review/test the patch train inline (prefixed

[GM]
This ASSERT will be hit even if we have multiple SMBIOS CM objects of 
the same type which is legal (for e.g there are multiple tables for 
type17/19 )

[SAMI] The understanding is that SmbiosTableInfo[] will only contain one entry for a given TableType as it is used to indicate which generators are to be instantiated. 

Following is the sequence of operations:
- The dispatcher is initialised in InitSmbiosTableDispatcher(), which will set the mSmBiosDispatcher[<Table_Type>].State to StPresent if SmbiosTableInfo[] contains a table of Table_Type.
- SmbiosTableInfo[] will only contain one entry for each table type, e.g. even if there are multiple Type17/Type19 tables to be installed. This entry indicates that table(s) of Type17/Type19 is/are requested to be installed and that the corresponding generator must be instantiated.
- Once the SMBIOS table generator is instantiated, it will then request for the object(s) of the required type from the Configuration Manager that are required to construct the table.
- The generator can then decide if multiple SMBIOS tables are to be constructed based on the objects returned by the Configuration Manager. e.g. if multiple Cm_Type17_objects are returned then the corresponding number of Type17 tables will be built by the generator.

Therefore, I think we should not hit the above assert. 

However, the code that may need to change/extend is the call to BuildAndInstallSmbiosTable(). I am not sure if we need to indicate that there could be multiple SMBIOS tables that may be installed. For now, BuildAndInstallSmbiosTable() implies that a generator of the specified type is to be instantiated for building the SMBIOS table of the specified type.

Hope this clarifies the scenario and please do let me know if I am missing something.

Also, I have only tested this patch with simulated data and there may be some issues that we may find when the full stack is integrated.
So, thank you for going through the patch in detail.

[GM]
That sounds right, I'd made a mistake when installing the CM objects.

I should be installing one of each SMBIOS table so that 
GetEStdObjSmbiosTableList gets the list of the available tables and each 
generator should install multiple tables of a given type based on the 
number of CM objects available.

I did expand the existing SMBIOS factory code to install multiple tables.

Thanks for the clarification.

Best Regards
Girish


> However, the code that may need to change/extend is the call to BuildAndInstallSmbiosTable(). I am not sure if we need to indicate that there could be multiple SMBIOS tables that may be installed. For now, BuildAndInstallSmbiosTable() implies that a generator of the specified type is to be instantiated for building the SMBIOS table of the specified type.

[SAMI] No worries. Please let me know if you face any issues with the 
dispatcher or if you identify any problem during integration.

Re: [edk2-devel] [PATCH v2 2/4] DynamicTablesPkg: Add SMBIOS table dispatcher
Posted by Girish Mahadevan via groups.io 10 months, 1 week ago
Hi Sami

Your patches worked. There was just one thing I had to add to get 
compile to work. (inline with [GM]), other than that I think you can get 
this in.

We've implemented about 18 table generators. (Types  0, 1, 2, 3, 8, 9, 
11, 13, 14, 16, 17, 19, 32, 38, 39, 41, 43, 45)
Two more are under way (Type 4.7).

I've setup a github repo here
https://github.com/tianocore/edk2/compare/master...gmahadevan:edk2-upstream:RFC/smbios-dyntables-v2?expand=1

I could send you one massive patch train (22 patches or so) or split it 
up into smaller chunks perhaps just the table generation stuff first and 
then each generator library.

Let me know.

Best Regards
Girish

Re: [edk2-devel] [PATCH v2 2/4] DynamicTablesPkg: Add SMBIOS table dispatcher
Posted by Sami Mujawar 10 months, 1 week ago
Hi Girish,

Thank you for taking this effort forward

Please find my response inline marked [SAMI].

[SAMI] I would be keen to understand how the Type 4 and 7 generators 
would work as I would prefer to avoid duplication of data.

[SAMI] Thanks for sharing the github branch. Please also share a github 
branch when you send out your patches for review.

[SAMI] I think it may be good to split the patch series to include table 
generation and then 1 or 2 generators to understand the code flow. The 
remaining generators can follow later. I think Type 4 and 7 would be 
really interesting, but you can send what you already have.

[GM]
As a first pass we're setting up the generators to just blindly use 
SMBIOS specific CM objects to setup these tables.

Second pass could be to have the generators try to rely on ACPI objects 
(PPTT) or fallback to Architecture specific libraries to figure out how 
to populate these tables. Honestly we need to think about this a little 
more, we'd love to swap notes.
(We are in the prelim stages of these so haven't gotten very far)

[GM]
Will do.

[GM]
ok, I will send out a patch train for the core generator code and 2 of 
the Generators.
