This duplicates the device information and breaks integrity of
libata logging functionality (ata_{dev,link,port}_printk() should
be all converted to use dev_printk() at the same time).

The root source of problem is that libata transport uses different
naming scheme for ->tdev devices (please see dev_set_name() in
ata_t{dev,link,port}_add()) than libata core for its logging
functionality (ata_{dev,link,port}_printk()).

Since libata transport is part of sysfs ABI we should be careful
to not break it so one idea for solving the issue is to convert
ata_t{dev,link,port}_add() to use libata logging naming scheme and
at the same time add sysfs symlinks for the old libata transport
naming scheme.

dev->sdev usage is not required for dev_printk() conversion and
should be considered as a separate change (since it also breaks
integrity of libata logging and can be considered as a mild
"layering violation" I don't think that it should be applied).

The point of this patch series is to attach a device unique identifier
to the storage device log messages as structured data.  Originally I
resurrected and used printk_emit, but it was suggested I leverage
dev_printk.  dev_printk does change the output of the log message to
include duplicate information if the message isn't changed. You are not
the first person to raise that concern.  I listed this as an open
question in the cover letter.  I've wanted to preserve the original log
message, so as to not break user space mining tools and I've been
concerned that dev_printk prefixing with an id may already do that.
Adding structured data is invisible to them, or at the least shouldn't
break them, eg. adding a new key-value pair.

I can understand the desire to make all the ata logging functions
consistent, and use dev_printk if we go this way.  However, for this
change it wasn't really the goal to refactor all the logging everywhere
to use dev_printk, although that may be a good change in general.  This
is especially true that if at the end of the refactor to use dev_printk
we consider it a layering violation to call into the existing
functionality to return the vpd ID for the device and reject that part
of the change.

What I am hoping is that we can all agree that having a persistent
identifier associated to storage related log messages is indeed useful.
If we can agree on that, then I would like to have the discussion on
what's the best way to achieve that.

Thanks,
Tony

BTW:

Similar dev_printk() conversion for ata_dev_printk() has been tried
recently as a part of changes to add dynamic debugging support to
libata (as it also requires dev_printk() to be used) and had to be
dropped:

https://lore.kernel.org/linux-ide/alpine.DEB.2.21.2003241414490.21582@ramsan.of.borg/

Thus I worry that the proposed ata_dev_printk() conversion is not only
causing duplicated information to be printed but it may also confuse
users.

Please note that with libata transport naming scheme fixed we can use
dev_printk() in libata with unchanged log messages.

Well, I'm against changing the libata log messages but durable name
functionality still should be achievable in libata.

How's about:

* adding:

	ata_dev->tdev.durable_name = ata_scsi_durable_name;

  near the end of ata_scsi_slave_config()

and

* implementing ata_scsi_durable_name() which does

	struct ata_device *ata_dev = container_of(dev, struct ata_device, tdev);
	
	return scsi_durable_name(ata_dev->sdev, buf, len);

?

Of course I agree that having a persistent identifier associated to
storage related log messages is useful and my previous mail was exactly
a part of discussion on the best way to achieving it. :-)

I agree with James that dev_printk() usage is preferred over legacy
printk_emit() and I've described a way to do it correctly for libata.

Unfortunately it means additional work for getting the new feature 
merged so if you don't agree with doing it you need to convince:

- Jens (libata Maintainer) to accept libata patch as it is

or

- James (& other higher level Maintainers) to use printk_emit() instead

Ultimately they will be the ones merging/long-term supporting proposed
patches and not me..

Thank you for the helpful response, I appreciate it.  I'll take a look
at the information you've provided and re-work the patch series.  I may
have additional question(s) :-)

I tried doing as you suggested.  I've included what I've done so far.  I
haven't been able to get all the needed parts for the symlinks to
maintain compatibility.

The /sys/class/.. seems OK, eg.

$  ls -x -w 70 /sys/class/ata_[dl]*
/sys/class/ata_device:
ata1.00  ata2.00  ata3.00  ata4.00  ata5.00  ata6.00  ata7.00
ata7.01  ata8.00  ata8.01  dev1.0   dev2.0   dev3.0   dev4.0
dev5.0   dev6.0   dev7.0   dev7.1   dev8.0   dev8.1

/sys/class/ata_link:
ata1   ata2   ata3   ata4   ata5   ata6   ata7  ata8  link1  link2
link3  link4  link5  link6  link7  link8

but the implementation is a hack, see device.h, core.c changes.  There
must be a better way?

Also I'm missing part of the full path, eg.

/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.1/ata7/link7/dev7.0/ata_device/dev7.0/gscr

becomes

/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.1/ata7/ata7/ata7.01/ata_device/ata7.01/gscr

but the compatibility symlinks added only get me to

/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.1/ata7/link7/dev7.0/ata_device/

I haven't found the right spot to get the last symlink included.

If you or anyone else has suggestions to correct the incomplete symlink
and/or correct the implementation to set the
/sys/class/ata_device it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
-Tony

Unfortunately I know too little about sysfs class-es handling to help
(I've added linux-{scsi,block} MLs & Greg to Cc:).

PS If libata support turns out to be blocking the patchset progress you
may consider concentrating on getting SCSI & NVME support merged first..

I can't understand what you are trying to do here.

What do you want to represent in sysfs with a symlink that you can't
just have in a single sysfs file like "name" or "new_name" or
"name_because_we_didnt_think_about_this_10_years_ago" that shows you the
other "name" that you are trying to look up here?

Why abuse symlinks like this at all?

And no, the device.h and core.c changes aren't ok :)

Unfortunately when adding libata transport classes (+ at the same
time embedding struct device-s in libata dev/link/port objects) in
the past someone has decided to use different naming scheme than
the one used for standard libata log messages (which use printk()
without any reference to struct device-s in libata dev/link/port
objects).

Now we would like to use dev_printk() for standard libata logging
functionality as this is required for 2 pending patchsets:

- move DPRINTK to dynamic debugging (from Hannes Reinecke)

- add persistent durable identifier storage log messages (from Tony)

but we don't want to change standard libata log messages and
confuse users..

All of that mess with symlinks just for a common debug printk?  That
seems excessive :)

Just use the device name and don't worry about it, I doubt anyone will
notice, unless the name is _really_ different.

Good luck.
I tried (cf patchset 'ata: kill ATA_DEBUG') but got rejected for exactly
this reason.

Unfortunately "a common debug printk" means all log messages generated
by libata core..

Well, Geert has noticed and complained pretty quickly:

https://lore.kernel.org/linux-ide/alpine.DEB.2.21.2003241414490.21582@ramsan.of.borg/

Anyway, I don't insist that hard on keeping the old names and
I won't be the one handling potential bug-reports.. (added Jens to Cc:).

I would think having sysfs use one naming convention and the logging
using another would be confusing for users, but apparently they've
managed this long with that.


It appears changes are being rejected because of logging content
differences, implying we shouldn't be changing printk usage to dev_printk.

Should I re-work my changes to support dev_printk path in addition to
utilizing printk_emit functionality so that we can avoid user space
visible log changes?  I don't see a way to make the transition from
printk to dev_printk without having user visible changes to message content.

Thanks

Unfortunately this won't fix the issue for Hannes' patchset.

The usage of sysfs symlinks for fixing the naming issue turned out
to not be (easily) possible so we should consider other options (or
just go forward with the original dev_printk() conversion)..
