+		This register is only reset by the power-on reset
+		and maintains its value through a system reset.
+		Four registers are used by the FSBL and other Xilinx
+		software products: PERS_GLOB_GEN_STORAGE{4:7}.
+		Register is reset only by a POR reset.

From: Rajan Vaja <rajan.vaja@xilinx.com>

The Linux shutdown functionality implemented via PSCI system_off does
not include an option to set a scope, i.e. which parts of the system to
shut down.

This patch creates sysfs that allows to set the shutdown scope for the
next shutdown request. When the next shutdown is performed, the platform
specific portion of PSCI-system_off can use the chosen shutdown scope.

From: Rajan Vaja <rajan.vaja@xilinx.com>

Add sysfs interface to set boot health status from user space.
Add IOCTL ID used by this interface to communicate with firmware.

If PMUFW is compiled with CHECK_HEALTHY_BOOT, it will check the
healthy bit on FPD WDT expiration. If healthy bit is set by a user
application running in Linux, PMUFW will do APU only restart. If
healthy bit is not set during FPD WDT expiration, PMUFW will do
system restart.

Why are these attributes just not hanging off of the platform device for
the firmware controller?  Why do you need a new subdir under "firmware"?

If you just set count to the error value, no need to test the value of
ret when you exit.  Not a big deal...

This feels "tricky", if you tie this to the device you have your driver
bound to, will this make it easier instead of having to go through the
ioctl callback?

You might be racing userspace here and loosing :(

See, you have a platform device, hang the attributes off of that instead
of making a kobject and detatching yourself from the global device tree!

Please redo this, I think it will make it a lot simpler and more
obvious.

Firmware driver was changed later to be platform driver but these interfaces were defined 
earlier and are in use.

GGS(general global storage) registers are in PMU space and linux doesn't have access to it 
Hence ioctl is used.

Prob is called before user space is notified about sysfs so racing shouldn't happen.
Or you are referring to some other race condition?

Sorry not sure about your concern here. These registers are in PMU space and hence
Ioctl is needed to let linux access them.

Agree it will be simpler but to as firmware driver was changed to be platform driver,
to keep paths same, we used sysfs.

Defined and in use where?  Not in the upstream kernel tree, right?  Or
am I missing them somewhere else?

Why not just a "real" call to the driver to make this type of reading?
You don't have ioctls within the kernel for other drivers to call,
that's not needed at all.

"shouldn't"?  How do you know this?

> Or you are referring to some other race condition?

Your kobject was created, and notified userspace that it was present and
then sometime after that you add more attributes which userspace has no
idea are there.

If you use the proper device model interfaces, none of these problems
would be there.

userspace or kernelspace?

You seem to be mixing them both here.

Keep them same from what?  Use the platform device as that is what it is
there for, do not go create new apis when they are not needed at all.

Hi Greg,

Thanks for raising various issues that I have repeatedly asked and
constantly ignored.

Exactly and they keep saying there partners are using these for 3-4 years
and they want to retain that. I have told them to change several times.

Oh yes, this is so broken in design. This firmware is designed to abstract
the power and configuration management on their platform, but they decided
to add direct register access to some registers anyway. Weird use case,
don't even ask. But I strongly objected such interface in sysfs even if
they moved under platform device. If they need this at any cost, I have
suggested debugfs.

+1, and please don't add any sysfs that can read/write those GGS registers
directly from userspace. Move them to debugfs if you are desperate to have
something.

Sorry, never intended to ignore you. We agreed to your comments for reg access and that patch is already removed. GGS and PGGS registers are for general purpose registers(set of 4) for users. Since this registers belongs to PMU register space, interface is provided to read or write the way user wants.

    and they want to retain that. I have told them to change several times.

Sorry we might have missed your comments for this change. We agree to your and greg's comment and will update sysfs path.

    Oh yes, this is so broken in design. This firmware is designed to abstract
    the power and configuration management on their platform, but they decided
    to add direct register access to some registers anyway. Weird use case,
    don't even ask. But I strongly objected such interface in sysfs even if
    they moved under platform device. If they need this at any cost, I have
    suggested debugfs.
    
As mentioned, these registers are for users  and for special needs where users wants to retain values over resets. but as they belong to PMU address space,     these interface APIs are provided. They don’t allow access to any other registers.

    +1, and please don't add any sysfs that can read/write those GGS registers
    directly from userspace. Move them to debugfs if you are desperate to have
    something.

    Defined and in use where?  Not in the upstream kernel tree, right?  Or
    am I missing them somewhere else?

Sorry I meant Xilinx kernel users. We will update it as per your suggestion.

    Why not just a "real" call to the driver to make this type of reading?
    You don't have ioctls within the kernel for other drivers to call,
    that's not needed at all.

these registers are for users  and for special needs where users wants to retain values over resets. but as they belong to PMU address space,     these interface APIs are provided. They don’t allow access to any other registers.

    "shouldn't"?  How do you know this?

Since firmware driver is always built-in (we don't provide support to use as module), user space won't be available before prob is complete. Correct if I am wrong.
    
    > Or you are referring to some other race condition?
    
    Your kobject was created, and notified userspace that it was present and
    then sometime after that you add more attributes which userspace has no
    idea are there.
    
    If you use the proper device model interfaces, none of these problems
    would be there.

Ok we will update it.

    userspace or kernelspace?
    
    You seem to be mixing them both here.

They are in Platform Management Unit register address space so it allows only secure access. Hence for linux to access it, interface APIs are provided.

    Keep them same from what?  Use the platform device as that is what it is
    there for, do not go create new apis when they are not needed at all.

Ok we will update it in next version.

That's not the issue here.  The issue is you are using an "internal"
ioctl, instead just make a "real" call.

Userspace starts earlier than you think, and also, use the correct
interfaces for this type of thing, that is why it is there.  Don't
create purposfully-incorrect code :)

Again, that's fine, but why are you creating an "internal ioctl"?  Just
make a real function call.

    That's not the issue here.  The issue is you are using an "internal"
    ioctl, instead just make a "real" call.

Sorry I am not clear. Do you mean that we should use linux standard ioctl interface instead of internal ioctl by mentioning "real" ?

No, you should just make a "real" function call to the exact thing you
want to do.  Not have an internal multi-plexor ioctl() call that others
then call.  This isn't a microkernel :)

[Rajan] Sorry for multiple back and forth but as I understand, you are suggesting to create a new API for
Read/write of GGS register instead of using PM_IOCTL API (eemi_ops->ioctl) for multiple purpose. Is my understanding correct?

Would like to clarify purpose of having ioctl API to avoid any confusion.
eemi interface apis are defined to be platform independent and allows 
clock, reset, power etc management through firmware but apart from these 
generic operations, there are some operations which needs secure access 
through firmware. Examples are accessing some storage registers(ggs and 
pggs) for inter agent communication, configuring another agent(RPU) 
mode, boot device configuration etc. Those operations are covered as 
ioctls as they are very platform specific. Also only whitelisted 
operations are allowed through ioctl and is not exposed to user for any 
random read/write operation.

Olof earlier had same concerns. We had clarified the purpose and with 
his agreement, initial set of ioctls were accepted. 
(https://www.lkml.org/lkml/2018/9/24/1570)

Please suggest the best approach to handle this for current and future 
patches.

Thanks,
Jolly Shah

Ok, in looking further at this, it's both better than I thought, and
totally worse.

This interface you all are using where you ask the firmware driver for a
pointer to a set of operation functions and then make calls through that
is indicitive of an api that is NOT what we normally use in Linux at
all.

Just make the direct call to the firmware driver, no need to muck around
with tables of function pointers.  In fact, with the spectre changes,
you just made things slower than needed, and you can get back a bunch of
throughput by removing that whole middle layer.

So go do that first please, before adding any new stuff.

Now for the ioctl, yeah, that's not a "normal" pattern either.  But
right now you only have 2 "different" ioctls that you call.  So why not
just turn those 2 into real function calls as well that then makes the
"ioctl" call to the hardware?  That makes things a lot more obvious on
the kernel driver side exactly what is going on.

If you need to add more "ioctl" like calls, just add them as more
functions, no big deal.  How many more of these are you going to need
over time?

But that's not all that big of a deal right now, get rid of that whole
middle-layer first, that's more important to clean up.  You will get rid
of a lot of unneeded code and indirection that way, making it simpler
and easier to understand what exactly is happening.

thanks,

greg k-h

arm,scpi is doing the same way and we thought this approach will be more 
acceptable than direct function calls but happy to change as suggested.

Sure as i understand firmware driver will provide real function calls to 
be used by user drivers and underneath it will call ioctl for desired 
operation. Please correct if I misunderstood.

Just because one random tiny thing does it the wrong way does not mean
to focus on that design pattern and ignore the thousands of other
apis/interfaces in the kernel that do not do it that way :)
