[PATCH v3] xen-pciback: Consider INTx disabled when MSI/MSI-X is enabled
Posted by Marek Marczykowski-Górecki 2 weeks, 2 days ago
Linux enables MSI-X before disabling INTx, but keeps MSI-X masked until
the table is filled. Then it disables INTx just before clearing MASKALL
bit. Currently this approach is rejected by xen-pciback.
According to the PCIe spec, device cannot use INTx when MSI/MSI-X is
enabled (in other words: enabling MSI/MSI-X implicitly disables INTx).

Change the logic to consider INTx disabled if MSI/MSI-X is enabled. This
applies to three places:
 - checking currently enabled interrupts type,
 - transition to MSI/MSI-X - where INTx would be implicitly disabled,
 - clearing INTx disable bit - which can be allowed even if MSI/MSI-X is
   enabled, as device should consider INTx disabled anyway in that case

Fixes: 5e29500eba2a ("xen-pciback: Allow setting PCI_MSIX_FLAGS_MASKALL too")
Signed-off-by: Marek Marczykowski-Górecki <marmarek@invisiblethingslab.com>
---
Changes in v3:
 - allow clearing INTx regardless of MSI/MSI-X state, to be consistent
   with enabling MSI/MSI-X
Changes in v2:
 - restructure the patch to consider not only MASKALL bit, but enabling
   MSI/MSI-X generally, without explicitly disabling INTx first

I was trying to test your xen-pciback v3 patch, and I am having
assignment fail consistently now.  It is actually failing to
quarantine to domIO in the first place, which matches the failure from
the other day (when I more carefully read through the logs).  It now
consistently fails to quarantine on every boot unlike the other day
where it happened once.

I added some printks and it 's getting -EBUSY from pdev_msix_assign()
which means pci_reset_msix_state() is failing:
    if ( pci_conf_read16(pdev->sbdf, msix_control_reg(pos)) &
         PCI_MSIX_FLAGS_MASKALL )
        return -EBUSY;

# lspci -vv -s 14.3
...
    Capabilities: [80] MSI-X: Enable- Count=16 Masked+
        Vector table: BAR=0 offset=00002000
        PBA: BAR=0 offset=00003000

So it looks like MASKALL is set and prevents assignment.

setpci -s 00:14.3 82.W=f
cleared that out for me and I could assign the device.

My dom0 boots, it runs flask-label-pci for a set of PCI devices
(including iwlwifi), then xl pci-assignable-add for all PCI devices
which will be passed through, then a little later it boots the
associated domains.  Dom0 does not have a driver for iwlwifi.

I'll have to investigate more to see how MASKALL is getting set.  This
had not been an issue before your recent patches.

Jason

Does this include the very first assignment too, or only after domain
reboot? If the latter, maybe some cleanup missed clearing MASKALL?

FWIW, the patch applied to Qubes
(https://github.com/QubesOS/qubes-linux-kernel/pull/680) seems to work
fine (the full test run is still in progress, but I see some green marks
already).

I guess before the patches nothing set anything in MSI-X capability,
because it was hidden...

Anyway, to support my cleanup hypothesis, I tried to destroy a
PCI-having domain, and it left MSI-X enabled (at least according to the
config space). MASKALL was _not_ set, but I haven't checked masking of
individual vectors. TBH, I'm not sure what should be responsible for the
MSI-X cleanup after guest destroy. Should it be Xen? Qemu? Pciback?
Pciback calls PHYSDEVOP_{prepare,release}_msix only when
binding/unbinding from the device (so - xl pci-assignable-{add,remove}),
so this isn't the right place.
Should that be in Xen, in deassign_device() (part of
DOMCTL_deassign_device)?

It's the quarantine during dom0 boot that fails.  Later assignment
during VM boot fails.  I tried warm reboots and cold boots and it
happened both times.

I also modified my initrd to halt in there and checked the config
space.  MASKALL wasn't set at that time.  I need to double check -
MASKALL may have been unset after dom0 booted in that case.

I'll test more to figure when and how MASKALL is getting set.

Does Qubes quarantine devices explicitly, or are they in dom0 and
libvirt/libxl just assigns them when a domain boots?

Well, stubdom hasn't even booted when, so it would be the Xen or
pciback change to modify MASKALL?

I need to review all this code to give a meaningful response.  Would
xen-pciback set MASKALL when it binds a device?  That happens before
xl pci-assignable-add tries to quarantine (assign to to domIO).

It seems to me that Xen needs to ultimately disable the device.

Jason

We do quarantine them explicitly, still in initramfs.

I don't see pciback doing that. And also, my patches shouldn't change
behaviour of pciback when binding to a device (so, if it would be doing
that, it would happen before my patches too).

Maybe that's an interaction with some other patches?

That's my intuition too.

I'm testing with a laptop without a battery.  It seems MASKALL remains
set when rebooting or when left plugged in.

From unplugged, a cold boot doesn't have MASKALL set and the network vm boots.

After that, rebooting the laptop leaves MASKALL set on the NIC when
the laptop reboots.   NIC assignment fails.

Shutdown and later boot while left plugged in keeps MASKALL set.  NIC
assignment fails.  I have only tested this scenario for short periods
of time, so I don't know if it would eventually clear after a longer
time.

Jason

That's interesting, seems like firmware is not resetting the device
properly. Maybe related to enabled wake on lan?

Anyway, resetting the device at domain create/destroy is AFAIR normally
done by pciback (at the instruction by the toolstack). Should it maybe
be done when assigning to pciback initially too? Or maybe in this
specific case, device reset doesn't properly clear MASKALL, so pciback
should clear it explicitly (after ensuring the MSI-X enable is cleared
too)?

Can you check if `echo 1 > /sys/bus/pci/devices/$SBDF/reset` clears
MASKALL on this device?

I'm tempted to add libxl__device_pci_reset() as part of
libxl__device_pci_assignable_add().

`echo 1 > ..../reset` did not clear MASKALL.

After shutting down the domain with the iwlwifi card, lspci from dom0 shows:
MSI-X: Enable+ Count=16 Masked+

Hmm, Xen logged:
(XEN) cannot disable IRQ 137: masking MSI-X on 0000:00:14.3

Oh, looking back, I see that was logged during my earlier testing of
this patch set, but I missed it.

It seems like Xen set Enable and Masked itself in __pci_disable_msix()
since memory decoding is not enabled.

I'm still investigating, but I wanted to give an update.  It seems
like Xen should clear MASKALL when booting.  Something like clearing
MASKALL in pdev_msi_init() when !ENABLE & MASKALL.  However, I have
seen the system boot with both Enable and Maskall set on the iwlwifi
nic.  Is it risky to just unilaterally clear both of those when
enumerating PCI devices?  It doesn't seem appropriate to leave them
set without a driver controlling them.
