Hi All,

Thanks for multiple comments.

Changes since v5:
- removed patch adding macro, dev_err_probe(dev, PTR_ERR(ptr), ...) should be used instead,
- added dev_dbg logging in case of -EPROBE_DEFER,
- renamed functions and vars according to comments,
- extended docs,
- cosmetics.

Original message (with small adjustments):

Recently I took some time to re-check error handling in drivers probe code,
and I have noticed that number of incorrect resource acquisition error handling
increased and there are no other propositions which can cure the situation.

So I have decided to resend my old proposition of probe_err helper which should
simplify resource acquisition error handling, it also extend it with adding defer
probe reason to devices_deferred debugfs property, which should improve debugging
experience for developers/testers.

I have also added two patches showing usage and benefits of the helper.

My dirty/ad-hoc cocci scripts shows that this helper can be used in at least 2700 places
saving about 3500 lines of code.

Regards
Andrzej

During probe every time driver gets resource it should usually check for
error printk some message if it is not -EPROBE_DEFER and return the error.
This pattern is simple but requires adding few lines after any resource
acquisition code, as a result it is often omitted or implemented only
partially.
dev_err_probe helps to replace such code sequences with simple call,
so code:
	if (err != -EPROBE_DEFER)
		dev_err(dev, ...);
	return err;
becomes:
	return probe_err(dev, err, ...);

/sys/kernel/debug/devices_deferred property contains list of deferred devices.
This list does not contain reason why the driver deferred probe, the patch
improves it.
The natural place to set the reason is probe_err function introduced recently,
ie. if probe_err will be called with -EPROBE_DEFER instead of printk the message
will be attached to deferred device and printed when user read devices_deferred
property.

In case of error during resource acquisition driver should print error
message only in case it is not deferred probe, using dev_err_probe helper
solves the issue. Moreover it records defer probe reason for debugging.

Using dev_err_probe code has following advantages:
- shorter code,
- recorded defer probe reason for debugging,
- uniform error code logging.

Nice helper, totally missed this patchset before !

I am not sure what exactly are you referring to, but this patch does not 
add new property, it just extends functionality of existing one.

Sry, needed to be more specific.

You've added  device_set_deferred_probe_reson(dev, &vaf);
which expected to be used on every EPROBE_DEFER in dev_err_probe() in combination with

+       } else {
+               device_set_deferred_probe_reson(dev, &vaf);
                 dev_dbg(dev, "error %d: %pV", err, &vaf);

^^ dev_dbg() does not add any runtime overhead during boot unless enabled
+       }

But:

+void device_set_deferred_probe_reson(const struct device *dev, struct va_format *vaf)
+{
+       const char *drv = dev_driver_string(dev);
+
+       mutex_lock(&deferred_probe_mutex);
+
+       kfree(dev->p->deferred_probe_reason);
+       dev->p->deferred_probe_reason = kasprintf(GFP_KERNEL, "%s: %pV", drv, vaf);
+
+       mutex_unlock(&deferred_probe_mutex);
+}

^^ Adds locking, kfree() and kasprintf() for every deferred probe during boot and can't be disabled.

Right?

Right, but usually the burden should be insignificant in comparison to 
probe time, so I do not think it is worth optimizing.

I do not think this is going to take. You are suggesting that we
modify pretty much every driver to supply this deferral reason, and I
doubt it will happen. Can we put this burden on providers that raise
the deferral? I.e. majority of code are using devm API now, so we most
likely know the device for which deferral is being raised. We can have
a list of deferral reasons and their devices and when in device code
once probe is done we could try reconciling it with the deferred
devicelist, and this would mean you only need to implement this in
gpiolib, regulator core, clocks core, etc.

Thanks.

I wouldn't say they raise the deferral, they just inform resource is not 
yet available. Only device driver, and only in its probe function can 
"raise the deferral".

This patchset tries to solve simple issue - replace multiple lines of 
code present in multiple probe functions (additionally fixing lot of 
them) with single call and then enhance it little bit, nothing more.

What you are proposing is blurry at the moment for me, provider does not 
know if consumer want to defer,  or will continue working without 
missing resource, moreover some consumers can acquire resources after 
probe - again no probe deferral. Even if it will be done (it can be, for 
example by creating probe version of all resource get functions), it 
will require much more changes but finally it will look like:

res = devm_get_resource_from_probe(....)

if (IS_ERR(res))

     return PTR_ERR(res);

vs:

res = devm_get_resource(...)

if (IS_ERR(res))

     return dev_err_probe(dev, PTR_ERR(res), ...);

Well, this is a matter of perspective. If devm_gpiod_get() returns
-EBUSY and this is returned to driver core, is it GPIO line signals that
line is busy, or is it the driver applies its knowledge. I say that in
majority of cases driver does not really get a say in this and simply
has to pass whatever error condition that is signalled by providers up
the stack.

I would consider whenever a driver does not propagate -EPROBE_DEFER to
the driver code a bug that needs fixing, because it should not degrade
functionality and/or performance just because we have not figured out
how to order probing properly and have to rely on deferrals.

This is my point - the consumer does not get to decide. If deferral is
raised, it must be honored.

> or will continue working without missing resource,

Deferral does not mean resource does not exist and the driver has to get
by if it can. It means the resource is not ready, and even if the system
can work without it, it will not be working optimally.

In this case we should not signal deferral either.

And we will need to adjust how many hundreds of drivers?

Consider that most drivers use devm_clk_get(), devm_gpiod_get() and
devm_regulator_get() and their friends. All these APIs already have
device for which resource is being allocated, and moreover their use
outside of probe() path is highly suspicious (because devm outside of
probe() typically result in unwinding in really surprising order). So if
you could stash device and deferral reason in a list and then scan this
list in driver core when handling the raised deferral you would not need
to change anything in individual drivers.

Hope this clears what I had in mind.

Thanks.

But the provider does not know if *get is called in probe context or 
not, so it is not able to differentiate it.

So the whole idea is for me suspicious/wrong. Kind of proof:

1. If you insist that provider's EPROBE_ERROR must be always propagated 
to driver core then.

2. You must enforce that resources can be gathered only from probe.

3. But this is against current practice, even if majority of drivers 
does it from probe, there are many which doesn't.

QED :)


So if you really want to go this way it would be good to look at these 
drivers, check why they do it this way, and try to convert them.

But I do not think it is a good way.

Those drivers are probably buggy anyway at this point given probe
deferral.
