From: Kevin Hilman <khilman@baylibre.com>

Cleanup the PM domain init state and ensure that the driver state
matches the HW state for all domains.

Tested on meson-g12a-sei510 and meson-sm1-sei610 and verified that fb
console still working (VPU power domain.)

Changes since v1:
- always call 'on'

The function named _get_power() is misleading since it returns true
if the power is off.  Rename to _is_off() for better readability.

From: Kevin Hilman <khilman@baylibre.com>

During init, ensure that the driver on/off state as well as clock and
reset state matches the hardware state.  Do this by always calling the
drivers 'on' function, and then callling the 'off' function if the
HW state was initially detected as off.

I don't see what you are trying to solve except simplifying the code.

And the case is more that "matching the clock state" here, the
pm_domain_always_on_gov was is a real case when booting from the Amlogic
U-boot.

The display power domain is complex and as been half solved by using
"simple-framebuffer" on gx and is missing on g12a/g12b/sm1.

For example, Debian installer runs without the modules, but will use
the EFIfb set by U-Boot, but in this precise case :
- the DRM driver isn't loaded
- we can't hook this power domain with EFIfb

When *not* in EFIfb, we use simple-framebuffer on GX, using this
power domain, but it hasn't been copied to G12A.

Personally I'll leave this code until we really tested and checked all
uses cases, not only on the sei510/sei610 using mainline u-boot.

Simplifying the code is a worthwhile goal on its own, but that's not the
only thing I'm tring to accomplish.

Part of the goal is make the init less VPU specific and thus make it
more understandable/maintainable.  But the more important part is to
ensure that the driver state and HW state is consistent for all the
domains (not just VPU.)  I've had to debug lots of power-domain issues,
and inconsistiences between HW state and driver state tend to be the
primary cause of problems.

Also I'm generally not a fan of the "don't mess with bootloader state"
approach as that leads to subtle dependencies on specific bootloader
versions that are also difficult to debug.

Antother equally important goal is to actually be able to power-down the
VPU when it's not used.  Right now, we'll never power off the VPU if the
bootloader enabled it, and that seems a bit extreme so I'm looking to
improve that and be able to power off the VPU when not used.

I'm not understanding what you mean about vendor uboot.  I've done
testing with vendor uboot too:

I tried on g12a-u200, g12a-x96-max, and sm1-khadas-vim3l all of which
have vendor uboot, and I tried before and after $SUBJECT patch.

In all cases, I see the vendor uboot splash screen, and I see the
framebuffer console from linux after kernel boot.  I see the same
behavior before and after my patch.

I also tried on g12b-odroid-n2 (vendor uboot), and there is _no_ uboot
spash screen, but I see the linux framebuffer console come up both
before and after my patch.

What's the specific case you're worried about with vendor uboot?

Also...  note something interesting I noticed on sm1-khadas-vim3l:
before my patch, the framebuffer console appears, but the background is
a bluish/green color.  After my patch, the background is black (as
expected.)

OK, so I agree that this case where we want the display to continue to
work but linux DRM drivers never loaded is a special case.

Is there a way to check if efifb is enabled?  Is the the linux driver
(drivers/video/fbdev/efifb.c) or something else only done by uboot?

If we can detect efifb from the kernel (not just whether the domain is
already on), then a simple addition to my patch like this:

 	if (is_off)
 		meson_ee_pwrc_off(&dom->base);
+	else if (efifb_is_enabled)
+		dom->base.flags |= GENPD_FLAG_ALWAYS_ON;

would force the domain always-on in the case of efifb.  

In fact, now that I think of it, simply adding:

 	if (is_off)
 		meson_ee_pwrc_off(&dom->base);
+	else
+		dom->base.flags |= GENPD_FLAG_ALWAYS_ON;

to my current patch would get back to the same behavior of the existing
driver.  But I still don't like the idea that we can *never* power off
the VPU if the bootloader enables it. :( I'd rather see patches
conditionally adding that flag with detailed explanations as to why it's
needed.

> When *not* in EFIfb, we use simple-framebuffer on GX, using this

I don't quite understand what problem simple-framebuffer is
solving. Could you explain that in more detail.

Assuming it is solving something, why can't it be used on g12[ab]/sm1 ?

> Personally I'll leave this code until we really tested and checked all
> uses cases, 

Right, I don't want to break anything on purpose, but I think the
current state of this driver is fragile and difficult to
understand/maintain, so I would be grateful for any help in
understanding the corner cases better, as well as testing them (or
explaining to me how to reproduce them.)

Generally, with long-term maintenance in mind, if I'm forced to choose
between understandable/maintainable code and "covers 100% of corner
cases" I will most often chose the former.

> not only on the sei510/sei610 using mainline u-boot.

See above about all the other boards with vendor uboots also tested.

I still find it ugly to power_on a domain to power it off right afterwards.
The issue is with the CCF enable handling which is not in sync with the
HW, if you boot with an already enabled clock, it won't be marked enabled
in CCF, and it's clearly bad when you want to have a fine-tuned gate state
handling.

Thanks for testing all these cases

It's an issue I got when bringing up mainline uboot and the vpu power controller
driver, I had regressions on GXBB and GXL boards.
But it seems it's no more the case on G12A/G12B, we'll see this when
GX support will be added in this driver.

Yes it's an issue I have on my infinite todo list, it's a different
init done by the latest vendor uboot. I have a fix but it seems it
breaks display when booting other boards.

simple-framebuffer has the power domain hooked in it's node, so
when u-boot will boot linux with HDMI enabled it will enable
this node and until the DRM driver loads the simple-framebuffer
will live and keep the power domain enabled.

It will, but I need to push the patches.

Let's leave apart the vendor uboot issue for g12.

Since display support for G12A will land soon in mainline U-boot, let me
push the DT patches for simple-framebuffer to we have a fallback in
case the DRM driver isn't loaded/built.

We can consider that in case of EFIfb, the simple-framebuffer node would have
been enabled and the power domain hooked and enabled.

It's not just the clocks.  The only thing we actually know is the HW
state of the sleep bit (because we read it.)  We don't know the state of
all the mem_pd bits or the iso_reg, nor do we know the state of the
reset lines.  Calling 'on' ensures everything is where we expect, and
we're not relying on the bootloader to do it.

Ah, thanks for the explanation.  I didn't realize it was u-boot that was
adding/enabling the simplefb node in the DT.

OK, that makes sense to me.

So can I consider this an 'ack' from you for this patch, as long as I
wait to apply it until the simplefb DT patches are also merged?

Thanks,

Kevin

CCF should disable unused clock so, in theory, you should not have to
call enable() then disable() to get things in sync.

I suppose the clock in question has the flag CLK_IGNORE_UNUSED (one of
the gates) ?

If the CLK_INGORE_UNUSED is becoming a problem, it would be better to
fix the clock tree rather than adding quirks in consumers.

But CCF won't disabled unused clocks until late(ish) in the boot
process, which is also when the unused PM domains will be disabled, so I
think there's still a potential for race between the late "disable
unused" features of clocks and pm-domains.
