Hi Russell, ARM SoC maintainers,

here's the full set of patches that remove arm_pm_restart as discussed
earlier. There's some background on the series in this thread:

	https://lore.kernel.org/linux-arm-kernel/20170130110512.6943-1-thierry.reding@gmail.com/

I also have a set of patches that build on top of this and try to add
something slightly more formal by adding a power/reset framework that
driver can register with. If we can get this series merged, I'll find
some time to refresh those patches and send out for review again.

From: Guenter Roeck <linux@roeck-us.net>

Register with kernel restart handler instead of setting arm_pm_restart
directly. By doing this, the prima2 reset handler can be prioritized
among other restart methods available on a particular board.

Select a high priority of 192 since the original code overwrites the
default arm restart handler.

* [PATCH 4/6] ARM: Register with kernel restart handler

From: Guenter Roeck <linux@roeck-us.net>

By making use of the kernel restart handler, board specific restart
handlers can be prioritized amongst available mechanisms for a particular
board or system.

Select the default priority of 128 to indicate that the restart callback
in the machine description is the default restart mechanism.

* [PATCH 4/6] ARM: Register with kernel restart handler

From: Guenter Roeck <linux@roeck-us.net>

By making use of the kernel restart handler, board specific restart
handlers can be prioritized amongst available mechanisms for a particular
board or system.

Select the default priority of 128 to indicate that the restart callback
in the machine description is the default restart mechanism.

Looks good to me! And helps also in my case, a board which has a broken
PSCI reset capability.

There must have been half a dozen attempts to send this patch series
upstream. I have tried, and others have tried. Each attempt failed with
someone else objecting for non-technical reasons (such as "we need more
reviews") or no reaction at all, and maintainers just don't pick it up.

So, yes, this patch series can only be found in downstream trees,
and it seems pointless to submit it yet again.

There must have been half a dozen attempts to send this patch series
upstream. I have tried, and others have tried. Each attempt failed with
someone else objecting for non-technical reasons (such as "we need more
reviews") or no reaction at all, and maintainers just don't pick it up.

So, yes, this patch series can only be found in downstream trees,
and it seems pointless to submit it yet again.

Looking at the *-by tag list above, I think we have enough quality
reviews to take this forward.

IMHO, it's unfair to burden multiple downstream trees with this purely
due to poor or nervy maintainership.  Functionality as broadly useful
as this should be merged and maintained in Mainline.

OOI, who is blocking?  As I see it, we have 2 of the key maintainers
in the *-by list.  With those on-board, it's difficult to envisage
what the problem is.

It has plenty of reviews and acks, so that's not the problem. If you
look back at the 2019 attempt:

1) there was a pull request sent on the 2 October 2019 to the arm soc
   guys to merge a series that quite obviously is outside of their
   remit as it touches mostly ARM core code - it should have been
   sent to me but wasn't, not even as a Cc.

2) I raised that issue, and as I could find no trace of the patches,
   I asked for the to be posted - which they were, eventually, two
   weeks later. It looks like I completely missed the patches amongst
   all the other email I don't bother to read anymore though. In any
   case, the pull request by that time would have been completely
   forgotten about.

And that's where it ended - no apparent follow-ups until now.

*Shrug*.

So in summary, I was expected to notice the patches amongst all the
other email, and then remember that there was a pull request that
wasn't even addressed to me...

Stefano already reviewed this patch, which is part of a larger series
that primarily touches 32-bit ARM code, but also touches 64-bit ARM
code as well.

As I said in my previous reply, I don't see that there's any problem
with getting these patches merged had the usual processes been
followed - either ending up in the patch system, or the pull request
being sent to me directly.

Sadly, the pull request was sent to the arm-soc people excluding me,
I happened to notice it and requested to see the patches that were
being asked to be pulled (since I probably couldn't find them)...
and it then took two further weeks before the patches were posted,
which I then missed amongst all the other email.

It's a process failure and unfortunate timing rather than anything
malicious.

Stefano already reviewed this patch, which is part of a larger series
that primarily touches 32-bit ARM code, but also touches 64-bit ARM
code as well.

As I said in my previous reply, I don't see that there's any problem
with getting these patches merged had the usual processes been
followed - either ending up in the patch system, or the pull request
being sent to me directly.

Sadly, the pull request was sent to the arm-soc people excluding me,
I happened to notice it and requested to see the patches that were
being asked to be pulled (since I probably couldn't find them)...
and it then took two further weeks before the patches were posted,
which I then missed amongst all the other email.

It's a process failure and unfortunate timing rather than anything
malicious.

Understood.

Is there anything I can do to help this forward?

I can either collect and re-submit the patches to the MLs if that
makes people's lives any easier.  Or if one of the original submitters
wish to retain responsibility, I have no qualms with that either.

I think at this point the usual applies - to make sure that they still
apply to current kernels and don't cause any regressions. I would hope
there won't be anything significant to invalidate the reviews already
given. If that's the case, it should just be a matter of someone
putting them in the patch system or send me a pull request.

I had stumbled across these patches from Guenter when I was looking to
solve a reboot/power-off issue on one of the boards that I was working
on. This was supposed to be preparatory work to get rid of the global
function pointers that drivers are simply overwriting, and the goal had
been to add a "system power" framework that would allow drivers to
register a chip structure to provide a bit more "formality" than
overwriting function pointers or registering notifier callbacks.

There ended up not being any interest in such a subsystem, so I wanted
to at least get this prep work in, because it is at least a bit of an
improvement.

I vaguely recall that Arnd or perhaps Olof had mentioned that they'd
pull these patches, but the timing was bad, so they asked me to remind
them after the merge window. By the time we had gotten through the merge
window, I probably had gotten sidetracked and forgot...

Feel free to give this a shot. This series itself is still useful, in my
opinion.
