This patch series contains stability fixes and error handling for remoteproc.

The changes included in this series do the following:
Patch 1: Fixes the creation of the rproc character device.
Patch 2: Validates rproc as the first step of rproc_add().
Patch 3: Fixes the rproc cdev remove and the order of dev_del() and cdev_del().
Patch 4: Adds error handling in rproc_add().

v2 -> v3:
- Removed extra file that got added by mistake.

v1 -> v2:
- Added extra patch which addresses Bjorn's comments on patch 3
  from v1.
- Fixed commit text for patch 2 (s/calling making/making).

Siddharth Gupta (4):
  remoteproc: core: Move cdev add before device add
  remoteproc: core: Move validate before device add
  remoteproc: core: Fix cdev remove and rproc del
  remoteproc: core: Cleanup device in case of failure

When cdev_add is called after device_add has been called there is no
way for the userspace to know about the addition of a cdev as cdev_add
itself doesn't trigger a uevent notification, or for the kernel to
know about the change to devt. This results in two problems:
 - mknod is never called for the cdev and hence no cdev appears on
   devtmpfs.
 - sysfs links to the new cdev are not established.

The cdev needs to be added and devt assigned before device_add() is
called in order for the relevant sysfs and devtmpfs entries to be
created and the uevent to be properly populated.

We can validate whether the remoteproc is correctly setup before
making the cdev_add and device_add calls. This saves us the
trouble of cleaning up later on.

The rproc_char_device_remove() call currently unmaps the cdev
region instead of simply deleting the cdev that was added as a
part of the rproc_char_device_add() call. This change fixes that
behaviour, and also fixes the order in which device_del() and
cdev_del() need to be called.

When a failure occurs in rproc_add() it returns an error, but does
not cleanup after itself. This change adds the failure path in such
cases.

This is not the correct way to submit patches for inclusion in the
stable kernel tree.  Please read:

This is not the correct way to submit patches for inclusion in the
stable kernel tree.  Please read:

for how to do this properly.

So this means no one ever ran this code on a system that used devtmpfs?

How was it ever tested?

My testing was done with toybox + Android's ueventd ramdisk.
As I mentioned in the discussion, the race became evident
recently. I will make sure to test all such changes without
systemd/ueventd in the future.

It isn't an issue of systemd/ueventd, those do not control /dev on a
normal system, that is what devtmpfs is for.

And devtmpfs nodes are only created if you create a struct device
somewhere with a proper major/minor, which you were not doing here, so
you must have had a static /dev on your test systems, right?

I am not fully aware of when devtmpfs is enabled or not, but in
case it is not - systemd/ueventd will create these files with
mknod, right? I was even manually able to call mknod from the
terminal when some of the remoteproc character device entries
showed up (using major number from there, and minor number being
the remoteproc id), and that allowed me to boot up the
remoteprocs as well.

I am not sure of what you mean by a static /dev? Could you
explain? In case you mean the character device would be
non-functional, that is not the case. They have been working
for us since the beginning.

No, systemd does not create device nodes, and neither does udev.  Hasn't
done so for well over 10 years now.

Yes, that is fine, but that also means that this was not working from
the very beginning :(

/dev on modern systems is managed by devtmpfs, which knows to create the
device nodes when you properly register the device with the driver core.
A "static" /dev is managed by mknod from userspace, like you did "by
hand", and that is usually only done by older systems.

Oh okay. I thought ueventd does it because it allows setting
the node permissions through ueventd.rc:

Right. To clarify, I did this after we started seeing the problem
on our devices, which led me to believe there was a race between
ueventd and cdev_add(). Not sure anymore if that is not the case.

Thanks for the explanation! As I mentioned earlier - I was under
the impression that ueventd does it. I will go through our older
builds where this was working (without this patch) and try to see
how the dev nodes were being populated.
