Hi All,

I forgot to add --compose so I could add the cover letter I had
already written, so here it goes:

Hi Greg, all,

I'm hereby submitting the rtl8723bs driver which
Bastien Nocera and Larry Finger have been maintaining at:

https://github.com/hadess/rtl8723bs

For inclusion into staging, like most of the other rtl*
drivers in staging this is a cleaned up version of Realtek's
own driver code for Linux.

I would like to see this added to staging because the
rtl8723bs is found on quite a few systems used by Linux users,
such as on Atom systems (Intel Computestick and various other
Atom based devices) and on many (budget) ARM boards such as
the CHIP.

The plan moving forward with this is for the new clean,
written from scratch, rtl8xxxu driver to eventually gain
support for sdio devices. But there is no clear timeline
for that as Jes is doing that in his spare time, so
I would like to see this driver included in staging for now.

Regards,

Hans

Hans,

I am still building the driver on my CherryTrail tablet, but I did see some 
warnings and errors listed by Smatch as follows:

The indent problems can probably be ignored, but many of the others are serious 
enough to be addressed now.

Once this driver is merged into staging, the Outreachy folks will be really busy.

Thanks for posting this driver,

Larry

As much as I hate adding more Realtek vendor code to the kernel, I do 
agree this is the right thing to do in the interim. Not sure when I'll 
get to SDIO support in rtl8xxxu, but I will process patches, hint hint :)

Hans,

I started looking at the Smatch errors. This one may be the result of a serious 
problem:

   CHECK   drivers/staging/rtl8723bs/core/rtw_debug.c
drivers/staging/rtl8723bs/core/rtw_debug.c:454 proc_get_survey_info() error: we 
previously assumed 'phead' could be null (see line 453)
drivers/staging/rtl8723bs/core/rtw_debug.c:455 proc_get_survey_info() warn: 
variable dereferenced before check 'phead' (see line 454)

A snippet of the code in question is as follows:

         spin_lock_bh(&(pmlmepriv->scanned_queue.lock));
         phead = get_list_head(queue);
         plist = phead ? get_next(phead) : NULL;
         plist = get_next(phead);
         if ((!phead) || (!plist)) {
                 spin_unlock_bh(&(pmlmepriv->scanned_queue.lock));
                 return 0;
         }

This code comes directly from the hadess repo, but I am suspicious of the double 
call to get_next(phead). I cannot imagine any valid reason to skip every other 
entry on that list.

Larry

If you look closer and simplify the first getnext line what is written is:

          plist = get_next(phead);
          plist = get_next(phead);

Which indeed looks like it could use improvement, but I don't
think it is seriously broken.

Regards,

Hans

My problem was that I thought that get_next() took an entry off the list. Now 
that I actually looked, I see that it just gets the next pointer.

Sorry for the noise,

So get_list_head(queue) can never return NULL? Otherwise I don't know
how close I need to get for a simplified look ;-)

I don't know.

I simplified things so as to make clear that Larry's worry was
not really a problem, I do agree the smatch complaint is valid.

I think the following fixes the problem:

         plist = phead ? get_next(phead) : NULL;

Pointer plist is set in the 3rd line, thus the second set of it can be removed.

Agreed, when I've some time I plan to do a follow-up patch
to my initial submission fixing all the Smatch errors. But feel
free to beat me to it.

Greg, if I understood you correctly you plan to merge my initial
submission as is and then we can fix this (and other things) with
follow up patches, right ?

Regards,

Hans

Hans,

I took GregKH out of the Cc list when I started the discussion of the Smatch 
errors/warnings, and he probably has not seen the recent E-mails in this thread. 
It it was my understanding that he planned to apply your submission in the form 
you sent.

I have several patches nearly ready to fix most of the Smatch warnings and 
errors. I will send them as soon as the original submission is applied.

Larry

Ah I missed that (clearly I did).

That is my understanding too.

Good thank you. So what is the plan with the github version ?

Note that my submission contains a few small fixes on top of
the github version, for which I intended to submit a pull-req
but I've not gotten around to that yet, I've done so now:

https://github.com/hadess/rtl8723bs/pull/125

But do we want to keep maintaining the github version (for a while
at least) I wonder, as that does mean double work?

Regards,

Hans

My plan is to remove everything and point to the upstream tree as soon
as the support has landed in Linus' tree.

While there is some use in keeping it around for older kernels, we keep
getting asked to support even older kernels than reasonable, or have
users complaining about non-working machines once they use the driver,
which simply uncovers kernel bugs that were fixed upstream.

I don't think it's a good use of our time to carry on supporting this
out-of-tree. I'll however make sure to try and document the migration
in a way that's helpful to users.

Cheers

Ok, that works for me.

I agree. I have enough to do.

You could simply break the build, and have it spit out a warning saying 
the git repo is kept there to track the old source.

It might be useful to have a repository of the original code to go look at.
