Subject: [PATCH v6] net: atlantic: always deep reset on pm op, fixing up my null deref regression
Date: Sun, 08 May 2022 00:36:46 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

The impact of this regression is the same for resume that I saw on
thaw: the kernel hangs and nothing except SysRq rebooting can be done.

Fixes regression in commit cbe6c3a8f8f4 ("net: atlantic: invert deep
par in pm functions, preventing null derefs"), where I disabled deep
pm resets in suspend and resume, trying to make sense of the
atl_resume_common() deep parameter in the first place.

It turns out, that atlantic always has to deep reset on pm
operations. Even though I expected that and tested resume, I screwed
up by kexec-rebooting into an unpatched kernel, thus missing the

This fixup obsoletes the deep parameter of atl_resume_common, but I
leave the cleanup for the maintainers to post to mainline.

Suspend and hibernation were successfully tested by the reporters.

I'm very sorry for this regression. It would be nice, if this could
reach mainline before 5.18 release, if applicable. This restores the
original suspend behaviour, while keeping the fix for hibernation. The
fix for hibernation might not be the root cause, but still is the most
simple fix for backporting to stable while the root cause is unknown
to the maintainers.

Changes in v2:
Patch formatting fixes
~ Fix Fixes tag
~ Simplify stable Cc tag
~ Fix Signed-off-by tag

Changes in v3:
~ Prefixed commit reference with "commit" aka I managed to use
~ Added Tested-by tags for the testing reporters.
~ People start to get annoyed by my patch revision spamming. Should be
  the last one.

Changes in v4:
~ Moved patch changelog to comment section
~ Use unicode ndash for patch changelog list to avoid confusion with
  diff in editors
~ Expanded comment
~ Targeting net-next by subject

Changes in v5:
~ Changed my MTA transfer encoding to 8 bit instead of
  quoted-printable. Git should like this a bit more.

Changes in v6:
~ Reducing content to 7 bit chars, because nipa did not apply v4 and v5, while
  git does against a fresh net-next HEAD. Maybe it chokes on the
  additional bit.
~ Omitting target tree to resemble the last passing patch version the most.
