Subject: [BUG] crypto: hisilicon: accessing the data mapped to streaming DMA
Date: Sun, 2 Aug 2020 22:52:48 +0800
Message-ID: <> (raw)

In qm_qp_ctx_cfg(), "sqc" and "aeqc" are mapped to streaming DMA:
   eqc_dma = dma_map_single(..., eqc, ...);
   aeqc_dma = dma_map_single(..., aeqc, ...);

Then "sqc" and "aeqc" are accessed at many places, such as:
   eqc->base_l = cpu_to_le32(lower_32_bits(qm->eqe_dma));
   eqc->base_h = cpu_to_le32(upper_32_bits(qm->eqe_dma));
   aeqc->base_l = cpu_to_le32(lower_32_bits(qm->aeqe_dma));
   aeqc->base_h = cpu_to_le32(upper_32_bits(qm->aeqe_dma));

These accesses may cause data inconsistency between CPU cache and hardware.

I am not sure how to properly fix this problem, and thus I only report it.

Best wishes,
Jia-Ju Bai
