Subject: [PATCH v5 21/25] dt-bindings: document stall property for IOMMU masters
Date: Tue, 14 Apr 2020 19:02:49 +0200
Message-ID: <20200414170252.714402-22-jean-philippe@linaro.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200414170252.714402-1-jean-philippe@linaro.org>

On ARM systems, some platform devices behind an IOMMU may support stall,
which is the ability to recover from page faults. Let the firmware tell us
when a device supports stall.

+- dma-can-stall: When present, the master can wait for a transaction to
+  complete for an indefinite amount of time. Upon translation fault some
+  IOMMUs, instead of aborting the translation immediately, may first
+  notify the driver and keep the transaction in flight. This allows the OS
+  to inspect the fault and, for example, make physical pages resident
+  before updating the mappings and completing the transaction. Such IOMMU
+  accepts a limited number of simultaneous stalled transactions before
+  having to either put back-pressure on the master, or abort new faulting
+  transactions.
+
+  Firmware has to opt-in stalling, because most buses and masters don't
+  support it. In particular it isn't compatible with PCI, where
+  transactions have to complete before a time limit. More generally it
+  won't work in systems and masters that haven't been designed for
+  stalling. For example the OS, in order to handle a stalled transaction,
+  may attempt to retrieve pages from secondary storage in a stalled
+  domain, leading to a deadlock.
