From: Rob Clark <robdclark@chromium.org>

Now that we can deal gracefully with bootloader (firmware) initialized
display on aarch64 laptops[1], the next step is to deal with the fact
that the same model of laptop can have one of multiple different panels.
(For the yoga c630 that I have, I know of at least two possible panels,
there might be a third.)

This is actually a scenario that comes up frequently in phones and
tablets as well, so it is useful to have an upstream solution for this.

The basic idea is to add a 'panel-id' property in dt chosen node, and
use that to pick the endpoint we look at when loading the panel driver,
e.g.

/ {
	chosen {
		panel-id = <0xc4>;
	};

	ivo_panel {
		compatible = "ivo,m133nwf4-r0";
		power-supply = <&vlcm_3v3>;
		no-hpd;

		ports {
			port {
				ivo_panel_in_edp: endpoint {
					remote-endpoint = <&sn65dsi86_out_ivo>;
				};
			};
		};
	};

	boe_panel {
		compatible = "boe,nv133fhm-n61";
		power-supply = <&vlcm_3v3>;
		no-hpd;

		ports {
			port {
				boe_panel_in_edp: endpoint {
					remote-endpoint = <&sn65dsi86_out_boe>;
				};
			};
		};
	};

	sn65dsi86: bridge@2c {
		compatible = "ti,sn65dsi86";

		...

		ports {
			#address-cells = <1>;
			#size-cells = <0>;

			...

			port@1 {
				#address-cells = <1>;
				#size-cells = <0>;
				reg = <1>;

				endpoint@c4 {
					reg = <0xc4>;
					remote-endpoint = <&boe_panel_in_edp>;
				};

				endpoint@c5 {
					reg = <0xc5>;
					remote-endpoint = <&ivo_panel_in_edp>;
				};
			};
		};
	}
};

Note that the panel-id is potentially a sparse-int.  The values I've
seen so far on aarch64 laptops are:

  * 0xc2
  * 0xc3
  * 0xc4
  * 0xc5
  * 0x8011
  * 0x8012
  * 0x8055
  * 0x8056

At least on snapdragon aarch64 laptops, they can be any u32 value.

However, on these laptops, the bootloader/firmware is not populating the
chosen node, but instead providing an "UEFIDisplayInfo" variable, which
contains the panel id.  Unfortunately EFI variables are only available
before ExitBootServices, so the second patch checks for this variable
before EBS and populates the /chosen/panel-id variable.

On snapdragon aarch64 laptops, a 'UEFIDisplayInfo' variable is provided
to communicate some information about the display.  Crutially it has the
panel-id, so the appropriate panel driver can be selected.  Read this
out and stash in /chosen/panel-id so that display driver can use it to
pick the appropriate panel.

I have to ask the obvious question: why doesn't the boot loader just
pass a correct DT to Linux ? There's no point in passing a list of
panels that are not there, this seems quite a big hack to me. A proper
boot loader should construct the DT based on hardware detection.

Hi Laurent,

Actually the bootloader on these devices is passing *no* dt (they boot
ACPI, we are loading dtb from grub currently)

I think normally a device built w/ dt in mind would populate
/chosen/panel-id directly (rather than the way it is currently
populated based on reading an efi variable prior to ExitBootServices).
But that is considerably easier ask than having it re-write of_graph
bindings.  Either way, we aren't in control of the bootloader on these
devices, so it is a matter of coming up with something that works on
actual hw that we don't like rather than idealized hw that we don't
have ;-)

BR,

Ah, the broken promises of ACPI on ARM64. I wonder how long it will take
before a public acknowledgement that it was a bad idea. Bad ideas happen
and can be forgiven, but stubborness in claiming it was the right
decision is another story.

(Not that you can be blamed for this of course :-))

If you can't control the initial boot loader, then I see two options,
none of which you will like I'm afraid.

- As you pass the DT to Linux from grub, there's your intermediate boot
  loader where you can construct a valid DT.

- If the ACPI cult needs to be venerated, then drivers should be
  converted to support ACPI without the need for DT.

A possible a middleground could be a platform driver (in
drivers/firmware/efi/ ? in drivers/platform/ ?) that will patch the DT
to instantiate the right panel based on the information retrieved from
the boot loader. We will need something similar for the Intel IPU3
camera driver, as Intel decided to come up with two different ACPI
"bindings", one for Windows and one for Chrome OS, leaving Windows
machine impossible to handle from a kernel driver due to required
information being hardcoded in Windows drivers shipped by Intel. This is
thus an option that may (unfortunately) need to become more widespread
for ACPI-based systems.

That doesn't however justify not going for the best solution we can
achieve. What do you like best in the above ? :-)

To be fair, I think the only blame here is that MS let qcom get away
with some things in their ACPI and UEFI implementation..  I think
we'll need to shift to ACPI eventually for these laptops, in order to
keep up.  DT isn't a thing that would scale with the volume of x86
laptops that exist, and if aarch64 laptops get there too, we'll need
ACPI.  Lets face it, the # of different dt devices supported upstream
is a drop in the bucket compared to number of *actually physically
different* x86 devices supported by upstream.  (And I don't mean
individual models of laptops, but different production runs where they
picked a different panel or trackpad or whatever.)

But we have a lot of upstream work to get there to support how ACPI
works on these things:

 * The new Platform Extension Plugin (PEP) model for device power
   control
 * untangling drm bridge hookup from DT
 * untangling drm panel hook from DT
 * figuring out how to deal with mis-matches between dt device
   model and ACPI device model

There is some early work for ACPI support for these devices, but
realistically I think it is going to take a better part of a year to
get there.  Until then we rely on DT.

That isn't to say my proposal doesn't make a ton of sense.  We also
need to solve this problem for DT based devices, and I think
/chosen/panel-id makes a *ton* of sense for those devices.

again, a kernel (or bootloader) side massively intrusive re-write the
dt approach isn't going to scale.  If you keep it simple, ie.
/chosen/panel-id I can see a possibility to move my patch from
drivers/firmware/efi into an earlier stage.  But if it has to re-write
graph, that falls apart as soon as a new device comes along with a
different bridge, or perhaps some vendor decides to use dsi directly
and forego the bridge.

usually (from what I've seen so far) there are a few gpios to probe to
decide which panel you have.  So after a few lines of gpio banging you
can either ask fw engineers to set appropriate node in chosen.. or
re-write of_graph bindings.  I think the former has a chance of
gaining traction on android devices.. latter not so much.  You are
really making too big of an ask for fw engineers ;-)

Just to put out an alternative idea for how to handle this in DT
(since Laurent seemed unhappy with the idea of using endpoints to
describe multiple connections between ports that *might* exist.

This approach would require of_drm_find_panel() to check the
device_node to see if it is a special "panel-select" thing.  (I think
we could use device_node::data to recover the actual selected panel.)

On the plus side, it would work for cases that aren't using of_graph
to connect display/bridge to panel, so it would be pretty much
transparent to drivers and bridges.

And I guess it could be extended to cases where gpio's are used to
detect which panel is attached..  not sure how far down that road I
want to go, as jhugo mentioned elsewhere on this patchset, in some
cases dsi is used to select (which could be problematic to do from
kernel if display is already active in video mode scanout), or efuses
which aren't accessible from kernel.


    chosen {
        panel-id = <0xc4>;
    };

    panel_select {
        compatible = "linux,panel-select";
        #address-cells = <1>;
        #size-cells = <0>;

        boe_panel {
            compatible = "boe,nv133fhm-n61";
            reg = <0xc4>;
            power-supply = <&vlcm_3v3>;
            no-hpd;
        };

        ivo_panel {
            compatible = "ivo,m133nwf4-r0";
            reg = <0xc5>;
            power-supply = <&vlcm_3v3>;
            no-hpd;
        };

        ports {
            port {
                panel_in_edp: endpoint {
                    remote-endpoint = <&sn65dsi86_out>;
                };
            };
        };
    };

    dsi_controller_or_bridge {
        ...
        ports {
            ...
            port@1 {
                reg = <1>;
                sn65dsi86_out: endpoint {
                    remote-endpoint = <&panel_in_edp>;
                };
            };
        };
    };

Personally I find my original proposal more natural (which is why I
went with it, this second idea is more similar to what I initially had
in mind before looking at of_graph).  And it seems to be a bit weird
to have a panel_select thing which isn't really hardware.

Hi Rob,

I understand why you are doing this, but this *really* belongs elsewhere.

So we are dealing with a platform that violates the UEFI spec, since
it does not bother to implement variable services at runtime (because
MS let the vendor get away with this).

First of all, to pass data between the EFI stub and the OS proper, we
should use a configuration table rather than a DT property, since the
former is ACPI/DT agnostic. Also, I'd like the consumer of the data to
actually interpret it, i.e., just dump the whole opaque thing into a
config table in the stub, and do the parsing in the OS proper.

However, I am not thrilled at adding code to the stub that
unconditionally looks for some variable with some magic name on all
ARM/arm64 EFI systems, so this will need to live under a Kconfig
option that depends on ARM64 (and does not default to y)

To clarify, the above remark applies to populating the DT from the OS
rather than from the firmware.

... but saving variables at boot time for consumption at runtime is
something that we will likely see more of in the future.

yeah, it isn't pretty, but there *are* some other similar cases where
efi-stub is populating DT.. (like update_fdt_memmap() and
kaslr-seed)..

it would be kinda nice to have an early-quirks mechanism where this
could fit, but I thought that might be equally unpopular ;-)

I defn can add this under kconfig.. is it ok if that option is
select'd by ARCH_QCOM?

I think this will be nice, but it also doesn't address the need for a
quirk to get this into /chosen..  I guess we *could* use a shim or
something that runs before the kernel to do this.  But that just seems
like a logistical/support nightmare.  There is one kernel, and there
are N distro's, so debugging a users "I don't get a screen at boot"
problem because their distro missed some shim patch really just
doesn't seem like a headache I want to have.

I guess some mobile SOC/snapdragon symbol would be more appropriate,
but given that qcom left the server business, I guess it hardly
matters, so default y if ARM64 && ARCH_QCOM is fine with me

I'd argue that this does not belong in /chosen in the first place,
i.e., it doesn't belong in the DT at all if the OS can access the
config table (and therefore the variable) directly.

The problem isn't with the stub updating the DT, the problem is what
it updates it with.

update_fdt_memmap() is the stub filling in the information it
communicates to the main kernel.

kaslr-seed sets a standard property using a standard interface if that
interface is available to it at the point of execution.

Since what we're doing here is dressing up an ACPI platform to make it
look like it was a DT platform, and since we have the ability to tweak
the DT before ever passing it to the kernel, let's just do that.

Yes, I know I said I'd rather not, but it's way nicer than sticking
platform-specific hacks into the EFI stub.

(If adding it as a DT property is indeed the thing to do.)

The distros should not need to be aware *at all* of the hacks required
to disguise these platforms as DT platforms.

If they do, they're already device-specific installers and have
already accepted the logistical/support nightmare.

admittedly I'm trying to solve two different problems here.. we also
have the problem of knowing which panel is installed for the "pure DT"
case.. where /chosen is (IMO) the right thing (alternatives involve a
shim that knows far too much about the device)..

I guess for ACPI boot case, we do anyways want some sort of
configuration table.  I suppose the drm code could look for both
/chosen/panel-id and configuration table and use either.  Although it
would be nice if somehow the config table info ended up in /chosen
when we are not using ACPI, since then at least code paths are more
similar to how we want future android devices to solve this without a
pile of downstream hacks..

I guess I'm not *against* a DT loader shim populating the panel-id
over into /chosen.. I had it in mind as a backup plan.  Ofc still need
to get dt folks to buy into /chosen/panel-id but for DT boot I think
that is the best option.  (At least the /chosen/panel-id approach
doesn't require the shim to be aware of how the panel is wired up to
dsi controller and whether their is a bridge in between, and that
short of thing, so the panel-id approach seems more maintainable that
other options.)

I am a bit fearful of problems arising from different distros and
users using different versions of shim, and how to manage that.  I
guess if somehow "shim thing" was part of the kernel, there would by
one less moving part... I'd know if user had kernel vX.Y.Z they'd be
good to go vs not.  But *also* depending on a new-enough version of a
shim, where the version # is probably not easily apparent to the end
user, sounds a bit scary from the "all the things that can go wrong"
point of view.  Maybe I'm paranoid, but I'm a bit worried about how to
manage that.

I am leaning like Ard towards preferring a configuration table though.

That removes the question of no runtime services (needing to manually
cache things, at least until EBBR 1.2 (?) is out and in use), and
means we don't have to use different paths for DT and ACPI. Now we
have UEFI in U-Boot, do we really need to worry about the non-UEFI
case?

Sure, but that's insurance against bindings changing
non-backwards-compatibly - which there are ways to prevent, and which
streamlining the design for really isn't the way to discourage...

Distros have no need to worry about the DT loader - the whole point of
it is to remove the need for the distro to worry about anything other
than getting the required drivers in.

Until the hardware abstractions provided by the system firmware (ACPI)
is supported, these platforms are not going to be appropriate for
end users anyway. No matter how many not-quite-upstream hacks distros
include, they won't be able to support the next minor spin that comes
off the production line and is no longer compatible with existing DTs.

Ok, if you want the DT loader to propagate UEFIDisplayInfo to a config
table, I can update the drm parts of my patchset to look for that in
addition to /chosen/panel-id

I've mixed feelings about requiring UEFI..  I definitely want to give
qcom an incentive to turn on GOP and full UEFI boot for future android
devices.  OTOH there are quite a few devices out there that aren't
UEFI boot.  But I guess if drm falls back to /chosen/panel-id we are
covered.

I'm a bit more concerned about DT loader getting into the business of
DT fixup..  I guess if we don't do that, it is less of a concern.  But
if we relied on it to fixup DT for installed panel, we could probably
make it work semi-generically on existing devices that have bridge and
panel wired up same way.  But seems like some of the 835 laptops have
bridge hooked up as child of dsi bus instead.  And someday we could
see devices using dsi directly, etc.

(It would be really nice to see DT loader able to pick the correct
.dtb based on smbios tables tho ;-).. but maybe different topic)

yeah, that will be a problem.. and also switching to older kernel
after upgrading when in-flight dt bindings evolve.  Having one less
moving part would be nice.

Maybe if adding a config table for UEFIDisplayInfo, you could also add
one for DT loader version, so (at least if user is able to get far
enough to get dmesg) we could see that more easily?

I think this is the only sane way of doing things: the DT loader,
which is tied much more closely to the platform, does whatever it
needs to do to infer from UEFI variables and/or ACPI or SMBIOS tables
which bundled DT it installs, and whether/how it needs to fix things
up. This indeed constitutes a moving part separate from the OS, but
this is the only way that scales. Getting DTs for these devices into
distros is *not* what we should be doing.

The whole point of the discussion we have been having for years is
that for production use cases, we should not be dealing with evolving
in-flight DT binding in the first place. If we ship a DT loader with a
certain version of the binding and there is a need to change it, we
can only do so if we retain support for the old binding as well.

I'd prefer it if the DT loader were in charge of creating the
UEFIDisplayInfo config tables, but given that we'll need to deal with
platforms that don't implement runtime variable services, it is
something I would be able to live with in the stub.

In summary, working around platform limitations that prevent us from
delivering an accurate DT to the OS should preferably be addressed in
a platform specific pre-OS component. I haven't had the chance to look
at leif's code yet, but from what I understand, we have pretty much
what we need with the exception of the panel/gop variable handling,
no?
