Subject: [GIT PULL] OP-TEE RPC arg for v5.19
Date: Wed, 4 May 2022 22:17:59 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20220504201759.GA180315@jade> (raw)

Hello arm-soc maintainers,

Please pull these patches which improves performance when communicating
with OP-TEE in the secure world. A cache of argument structs is
implemented to minimize the number of alloc/free and possibly also
register/unregister of these buffers in the secure world. This boosts
the performance in particular in a FF-A configuration. It should also
save a bit of shared memory since each multiple a physical page now can
hold multiple argument structs, instead of one page per struct as it was

The OP-TEE SMC ABI is also extended to pass an argument struct needed
for RPC together with the primary argument struct, in a manner similar


The following changes since commit 3123109284176b1532874591f7c81f3837bbdc17:

  optee: cache argument shared memory structs (2022-04-25 21:13:05 +0200)

OP-TEE RPC argument cache

Adds caching of the OP-TEE argument structure used to pass request to
secure world. This reduces quite a bit of unnecessary alloc/free and
possibly switching back and forth to secure work in order to register
the buffers in some configurations, most notably FF-A.

Jens Wiklander (4):
      optee: rename rpc_arg_count to rpc_param_count
      optee: add FF-A capability OPTEE_FFA_SEC_CAP_ARG_OFFSET
      optee: cache argument shared memory structs
