This is a follow up of the patchset "Document how userspace should use
plane format list and IN_FORMATS":

https://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/dri-devel/2021-April/302433.html

The first patch of the series ("drm/doc: document drm_mode_get_plane")
is still useful, although the other commit of the series was incorrect.
So I'm pushing the first commit again.

v2: possible_crtcs field is a bitmask, not a pointer. Suggested by
Ville Syrjälä <ville.syrjala@linux.intel.com>

This should probably explain what the bits in the mask correspond to.
As in, which CRTC does bit 0 refer to, and so on.

What are the units? Entries? Bytes?

I wonder if the "do not require modifiers" is again going too far in
making a difference between this list and IN_FORMATS?

Other than those, looks like a significant improvement to me.

What about:

"possible_crtcs: Bitmask of CRTC's compatible with the plane. CRTC's are
created and they receive an index, which corresponds to their position
in the bitmask. CRTC with index 0 will be in bit 0, and so on."

The number of entries. I'll update to "gamma_size: Number of entries of
the legacy gamma lookup table" in the next version.

Yes that's true, I'll drop this phrase.

This would still need to explain where can I find this index.

This closed merge request had some docs about possible CRTCs:

I'm afraid I don't know exactly what you expect to be documented here
that is still missing. Could you please elaborate?

The documentation you add is talking about "CRTC index". What defines a
CRTC object's index? How do I determine what index a CRTC object has?

The answer is, AFAIK, that the index is never stored explicitly
anywhere. You have to get the DRM resources structure, which has an
array for CRTC IDs. The index is the index to that array, IIRC. So if
one does not already know this, it is going to be really hard to figure
out what the "index" is. It might even be confused with the object ID,
which it is not but the ID might by complete accident be less than 32
so it would look ok at first glance.

If the index is already explained somewhere else, a reference to that
documentation would be enough.


Thanks,
pq

I think if we do this we should have a DOC: section in the drm_mode.h uapi
header which explains how the index is computed, and then we reference
that everywhere. Because otherwise there's going to be a _lot_ of
duplication of this all over. Kernel-internally we solve this by just
referencing drm_foo_index() family of functions, but for the uapi there's
really nothing, so needs text.

Ok, I've sent a v3 with a small section to document how to get the index
of a CRTC object from userspace perspective. But I could only find two
comments that would benefit from it (at least in "Userland interfaces"
page).

Thanks!
