These all are basically different names for the same controller.
The 'offset' is a configuration parameter and the 'clock', when NULL,
is basically some "always-on" clock.
I am sure we wouldn't be doing it, if the controller was third-party.

I'm aware that its not great to duplicate but i just followed
how it was done previously.

I will probably send a patch to lump the common conf together.

If newer implementations are 'the same', then they should have a
fallback compatible to the existing one that is the same and no driver
change is needed. If the differences are board or instance (within an
SoC) specific, then a DT property would be appropriate.

3rd party IP is generally not any different. SoC vendors manage to
make their implementations unique...

The controllers (13 now) only differ by the 'offset' where the
registers are mapped. Clock-name is a pure s/w artifact.
So, maybe we could push all these in DT.

Why is 'reg' not used for the offset?

In any case, we can't really get rid of the first 13 instances though...

The DT node and its "reg" describes the whole IP block.

The particular register that we care of has, as you can see, moved
around during the various platforms and some incarnations of this IP
block provides controls for CPU-related clocks as well.

We can certainly have the multiple compatible points to the same
apcs_data, but I'm not able to spot a reasonable "catch-all compatible"
given that I don't see any natural groupings.

Right, we have the problem that we have DTBs out there that relies on
these compatibles, but as Jassi requests we'd have to start describing
the internal register layout in DT - which this binding purposefully
avoids.

Any platform that comes later may reuse the already available compatible.
For example drop this patch and reuse "qcom,sdm660-apcs-hmss-global" ?

Not these strings, but 'offset' and 'clock-name' as optional
properties that new platforms can use.

The problem is that this would change the meaning of
"qcom,sdm660-apcs-hmss-global" from meaning "The apcs hmss global block
_in_ sdm660" to "any random apcs block with the mailbox register at
offset 8".

Using a compatible that actually describes the specific IP block allows
us to add more implementation details to the existing binding after the
fact, like we had to do in c815d769b598 ("mailbox: qcom: Create APCS
child device for clock controller")


So what we typically do between Qualcomm platforms is to come up with
some common compatible that really states the equivalent of "a generic
apcs with mailbox register at offset 8", we specify both the specific
and the generic in DT and we implement only the generic - until the day
when we need the specific.

But we need to figure out what the common descriptor is for these
various groups of apcs blocks for that to work out.

Relying on completely generic compatibles to match the driver and then
distinguish each platform using additional properties is exactly what
Qualcomm does downstream.  The community has clarified countless times
that this is not the way to write DT bindings.

That said, I certainly dislike the current situation, because bringing a
new Qualcomm platform upstream means adding a couple of drivers (clocks,
pinctl etc) and then it's a large amount of oneliners throughout the
various drivers just adding compatibles in the right palces.

Bjorn

To me, the deeper problem seems to be naming a controller "The apcs
hmss global block _in_ sdm660" just because the h/w manual hasn't
given a name to it.  But that is okay too, if we name the subsequent
controllers as "the same as one in sdm660" and provide the h/w
configuration 'offset' via a DT property.

Yes, and I don't suggest it otherwise. For h/w quirks and
extra/missing features, it does make sense to have different
compatibles.

However, for _trivial_ variations let us get that value from DT.
'offset' is anyway a h/w property.
That way we won't be distinguishing platforms using dt properties, but
only support different platforms seamlessly.

On second thought, we have grown from 2 to 13 aliases in 4 yrs. I only
have to ignore 3 times/annum to lead a peaceful life ;)

thnx.

As I said, I'd need to dig through the hardware documentation for the
various platforms to see if I can find what the common denominators are.
We've always seen this as "the apcs hmss global block _in_ <platform>".

But what you're suggesting assumes that they are the same and that we're
done implementing all the software for this block. The platform specific
compatible allows us to postpone that question.

As I said previously, this goes against the direction provided by the DT
maintainers. If a property is platform specific this should be expressed
by the compatible.

True, but I'll try to find some time to see if we have some reuse of the
IP block to allow us to use some generic compatible.

We'd still need a patch in the DT binding for every single platform, but
we should be able to avoid the compatible additions in the driver.

Hello Jassi, Bjorn

I've read the entire thread and I can't say that Jassi is entirely wrong
but I also agree with Bjorn on this matter.

This driver is here to "simply" manage the register offset in the APCS
IP, which is a pretty straightforward operation.
If you check in this driver, you will see that there's not much
duplication between the various qcom_apcs_ipc_data that we have for
all the different SoCs.

Checking further, we can effectively reduce the amount of compatibles
in this driver by simply removing some "duplicated" instances and in
particular:
ipq6018, ipq8074, msm8916, msm8994, msm8998, sdm660

and eventually replacing them with either of:
- 8bits_apcs_data    qcom,apcs-apps-global-8bit
                      qcom,apcs-kpss-global-8bit
- more_appropriate_name_apcs_data qcom,(...blah)

This would mean that we would have to use a generic "qcom,apcs-clk" as
the clk_name, but no other modifications would be done, apart checking
the return value to choose whether to print or not the dev_err when the
clock name is specified but not present in dt, since the driver is
already actually covering this case.

That would make us able to reduce the compatibles from 6 to 2, relative
to the aforementioned SoC specific bindings.
I'm positive that, through time, when new SoCs arrive, we would avoid
getting this compatible list to be megabytes long...

Right now it's not an issue, but since Qualcomm SoCs are now being very
actively upstreamed, I can see this coming in the future, somehow.


Of course this means that we're getting some fair amount of patch-noise
in the mailing lists, since all qcom dtsi files will have to be changed,
but that shouldn't really be a problem, I guess.

I'm sure that I'm not the only one with such a "wow-idea" in mind :)

Yours,

It has been 4yrs and 13 platforms. The compatible strings are used
only to match the hardcoded 'offset' values. Maybe we cross the bridge
when we get to it.
I think, when the drivers are enhanced and the kernel binary needs to
be updated, we could update the dtb as well? Or is it too hard on
these platforms?

cheers.

However, since the existing compatibles can't be removed, we could at
least stop adding new, but reuse the existing ones.

cheers.

I don't like those compatibles, simply because the binding is supposed
to describe the hardware block, not the fact that Linux _currently_ only
pokes this one register.

We could probably "qcom,apss-global" as a catch-all for at least sc7180,
sc7280, sdm845, sm8150, sm8250 and sm8350.

But look at 8996 and 8998, both named "something-hmss-something", with
different register layout. And a quick glance seems to indicate that
sdm660 isn't a hmss after all :/

But introducing qcom,apss-global should catch a bunch of the newer
platforms.


On the DT binding side we still need the platform-specific ones and we
need each one to be added to the binding regardless of the catch-all in
the driver.

Since you've immediately misunderstood my naming, yeah, that wouldn't be
the best thing to use as a compatible.

Doesn't look like a bad idea, but if we want to *enforce* writing also
the platform-specific compatible, I can see patch series going back
and forth and getting refused because this will not be really understood
by everyone, I think.
In this case, if writing the platform compatible is something mandatory,
the only way to really make sure to avoid losing time with reviews like
"[...] here you have to write also the platform compatible", is to just
keep the thing as it is.

Starting from the fact that I don't clearly remember what-when-why of
my research done more than one year ago, I do remember that conclusion
was that, in this regard, SDM630/660 were "mostly the same" as MSM8998.
In any case, this is something that, at this point, is better get
verified, maybe.

Sorry, that was certainly not my intention.

My understanding from the DT maintainers is that the dts would be
checked by the schema, but I suspect that you're right in that we might
have some back and forth on the DT binding, but I don't think that's a
big deal.

Yeah, I presume that someone with the documentation would need to go
through each one of these and see what kind of grouping there might be.

And I also presume that there might be cases where the CPU clocks has
moved into the secure world, so that even though the hardware block is
the same the presence of a in-kernel clock driver in the implementation
might differ.


But just to clarify, I find it annoying having to sprinkle compatibles
all over the place every time I try to get a new board up. So I am not
against us trying to figure this out.

Bjorn

Rob has acked the dt-bindings. So I guess I have to pick this patch
(and eventually the more recent patch adding another 2 compatibles).
Bring it on.

Cheers!
