Hello,

This is v6 of my quest to introduce ledtriggers for UARTs. The previous
series is available at

	http://lore.kernel.org/r/20191219093947.15502-1-u.kleine-koenig@pengutronix.de

The changes compared to that are that parsing of the dev parameter is
more strict and that I set brightness directly from the kworker instead
of using led_blink_set_oneshot which makes use of another kworker. (Both
requested by Pavel Machek.)

For the former I introduced a new helper kstrtodev_t() in the spirit of
kstrtoul() to implement the stricter parsing (instead of the lax one
using plain sscanf() in v5).

Best regards
Uwe

This function is in the same spirit as the other kstrto* functions and
uses the same calling convention. It expects the input string to be in
the format %u:%u and implements stricter parsing than sscanf as it
returns an error on trailing data (other than the usual \n).

From: Uwe Kleine-König <u.kleine-koenig@pengutronix.de>

Introduce a new function tty_kopen_shared() that yields a struct
tty_struct. The semantic difference to tty_kopen() is that the tty is
expected to be used already. So rename tty_kopen() to
tty_kopen_exclusive() for clearness, adapt the single user and put the
common code in a new static helper function.

tty_kopen_shared is to be used to implement an LED trigger for tty
devices in one of the next patches.

From: Uwe Kleine-König <u.kleine-koenig@pengutronix.de>

For a given struct tty_struct this yields the corresponding statistics
about sent and received characters (and some more) which is needed to
implement an LED trigger for tty devices.

The new function is then used to simplify tty_tiocgicount().

Usage is as follows:

	myled=ledname
	tty=ttyS0

	echo tty > /sys/class/leds/$myled/trigger
	cat /sys/class/tty/$tty/dev > /sys/class/leds/$myled/dev

. When this new trigger is active it periodically checks the tty's
statistics and when it changed since the last check the led is flashed
once.

Looks good to me, Pavel, any objection to me merging this through the
tty tree?

I really don't have time to look at this, but having the led-trigger
keep the port open looks fundamentally broken (consider modem-control
signals, power, etc).

If I understand correctly calling tty_kopen_shared() doesn't open the
device, just keep it referenced which prevents it to disappear. Unless I
miss something it doesn't result in the tty's .open() being called.

So tty_kopen_shared() is something you added. Judging from a quick look
it seems you can only attach a trigger to an already open port, but the
trigger will then keep the port open (again, consider modem control,
power).

I'm sorry I don't have time to review this myself, but this probably
needs some more eyes on it before being merged.

Sorry, my bad; this reference shouldn't prevent the port from being
closed.

The fact that you need the port to be open before you can attach a
trigger does sound like a problem though (e.g. consider udev rules).

So here you skip initialisation and return NULL if the tty isn't already
in use (e.g. is open) when shared is set.

This "kopen" naming is unfortunate as the tty isn't really opened by
either of these functions, but that's not something you introduced.

Which is good, right? If I remember my tests correctly this even works
if the tty isn't opened but just "exists".

Ack, will send a v7 with the doc string fixed.

No, this means that your trigger will never be installed unless the port
is already open, yet the sysfs interface still returns success (see
patch 4/4 dev_store()).

Note that the struct tty doesn't exist until the port is opened; it's
allocated in tty_init_dev() that you skip above when "shared" is set.

Can we first split the kstrotox* (and simple_strto*) to the separate
header first?

On top of that, why kstrtodev_t is so important? How many users are
already in the kernel to get an advantage out of it?
What to do with all other possible variants ("%d:%d", "%dx%d" and its
%u variant, etc)?

Why simple_strto*() can't be used?

Perhaps preserve order? (It's for the future, since I doubt we will
get this in upstream anyway).

I don't feel strong here what is right. But I hesitate to create another
pre-condition for this patch set.

Does it need to be important? It matches the other kstrto* functions and
so it seemed more natural to me to put it near the other functions. I'm
not aware of other potential users and surprised you seem to suggest
this as a requirement.

> What to do with all other possible variants ("%d:%d", "%dx%d" and its
> %u variant, etc)?

I don't see how %d:%d is relevant, major and minor cannot be negative
can they? I never saw 'x' as separator between major and minor. I
considered shortly parsing %u, but given that (I think) this is an
internal representation only I chose to not make it more visible than it
already is.

> Why simple_strto*() can't be used?

I didn't really consider it, but looking in more detail I don't like it
much. Without having tried it I think simple_strtoull accepts
"1000000000000000000000000000000000000000000" returning some arbitrary
value without an error indication. And given that I was asked for strict
parsing (i.e. not accepting 2:4:something) I'd say using simple_strto*
is a step backwards. Also simple_strtoul() has "This function is obsolete.
Please use kstrtoul instead." in its docstring which seems to apply to
the other simple_strto*() functions, too.

Yes it does. The kstrtox() are quite generic, what you are proposing
is rather one particular case with blurry understanding how many users
will be out of it.
If you had told "look, we have 1234 users which may benefit out of
it", I would have given no comment against.

See above, if we are going to make it generic, perhaps better to cover
more possible users, right?
Otherwise your change provokes pile of (replaced)
kstrto_resolution() /* %ux:%u */
kstrto_range() /* %d:%d */
kstrto_you_name_it()

So what? User has a lot of possibilities to shoot into the foot.
Since you interpret this as device major:minor, not founding a device
will be first level of error, next one when your code will try to do
something out of it. It shouldn't be a problem of kstrtox generic
helpers.

I specifically fixed a doc string to approve its use in the precisely
cases you have here.

In my understanding one user is a hard requirement.

Sure, having >1000 potential users would be a good argument pro this
function. But having only one isn't a good contra IMHO.

Given there are respective types that this can be stored to, I don't
object more functions of this type and don't see a good reason to not
add such a function. And in my eyes I prefer to have such a function in
a visible place (i.e. where all the other kstrto* functions are) to
prevent code duplication.

Also I don't understand yet, what you want me to do. Assume I'd be
willing to use simple_strtoul, I'd still want to have a function that
gives me a dev_t from a given string. Should I put this directly in my
led-trigger driver?

I fail to follow your argument here. In my eyes if the user writes a
valid major:minor it should work, and if they write an invalid one this
should result in an error and not a usage of a device that just happens
to have the major:minor that simple_strtoull happens to return for the
two components.

Can you please be a bit more constructive here and point to the change
you talk about? I didn't find a commit in next.

Ah I think I see. tty_driver_lookup_tty() might return NULL which for
the trigger driver indicates that tty_kopen_shared should be retried,
right?

That needs fixing. I will try to resolve the dialog with Andy before
addressing that in the next iteration.

Yes. But looking at the LOCs you introduce to entire kernel in such
generic area (I wouldn't tell you anything if, for instance, you
introduced a support for hypothetical S2P bus with one host controller
driver) like lib/.

You can easily satisfy above by adding a function parameter 'char
*delim', right?

I have issues with kstrto() not playing with simple numbers (boolean
is a special case, but still a number at the end).
I also don't feel good with too narrow usage of the newly introduced helper

I see the following possibilities:
a) put it inside the caller and forget about generic helper
b) do a generic helper, but 1/ in string_*() namespace, 2/ with a
delimiter parameter and 3/ possibility to take negative numbers

In b) case, add to the commit message how many potential _existing_
users may be converted to this.
Also it would be good to have two versions strict (only \n at the end
is allowed) and non-strict (based on the amount of users for each
group).

Note, there is no more word 'obsolete' there.

Why are added LOCs bad? Increased compile time? Increased binary size?
More memory usage when the file is opened in an editor?

So while I agree (as I wrote) that many users would be great, not having
many users isn't bad enough to justify putting this function somewhere
separated from the other kstrto*() functions. I assume we won't be able
to sort out this difference of opinion.

Well, not completely as major and minor have a different domain range
compared to unsigned ints (or any other integer type).

A dev_t is also a number in the end.

> I also don't feel good with too narrow usage of the newly introduced helper

I don't see how a helper that should provide a valid dev_t and other
types use a generic function. The specification for parsing a dev_t is:
"A non-negative number that fits in 20 bits, followed by a colon,
followed by a non-negative number that fits in 12 bits." So even if we
had a generic function that could parse (in scanf-semantics) "%u:%u",
we'd still need a more specialized helper that ensures the range of the
two integers. (And I suggest to call this helper kstrtodev_t. :-)

I wonder about 1/. Are there already other (and similar) functions in
the string_* namespace? IMHO kstrto* is fine. These all take a string
and provide a value of a given type with strict parsing. As pointed out
above, 2/ isn't enough. I don't care much about 3/.

I talked about

https://elixir.bootlin.com/linux/v5.6-rc2/source/lib/vsprintf.c#L61

which still tells to not use it.

I think what is needed here to satisfy us both is a set of functions like:

	int buftoul(const char *buf, char **endp, unsigned long *result)

which does proper range checking (by not consuming chars that are too
much) and still provides an endp pointer that allows to make use of this
function to parse types that are represented by more than a plain
integer. Currently this functionality is provided by _parse_integer
(with a different API and slightly different semantic). For my purpose
_parse_integer is good enough, so I'd like to leave introduction and
identification plus conversion of already existing potential users to
you.

Best regards
Uwe

If you put this like: okay, this is a new helper and new user, but we
have 100500 similar cases in the kernel which may benefit out of this,
it's one story, it you put it like: okay, let's do one helper per each
very particular case, it's another story.
You see the difference? I'm completely against the latter one.

Yes, it's also can be adjusted. You provide a better helper and then
you may do something like

static inline ... string_parse_dev_t(...)
{
  ret = string_parse_two_numbers(..., );
  if (ret)
    return ret;

  if (x or y is not in range)
    return -EOVERFLOW;
  ...
}

My point (when I added single) is 1:1 map. dev_t is not.

See above: 1/ provide a generic helper, 2/ provide its use with
certain dev_t validation.

Not exactly. There is a printing in human-readable format for sizes
and escape/unescape.

See above, I really don't see how this fits kstrtox(), to me it's
obvious layer violation.

I didn't get it. There are _existing_ users in the kernel for that
functionality, At least two are using it right now.
Funny that the original code has been rewritten to get rid of int_pow() call.
You may do the same, i.e. rewrite your code to get rid of whatever_dev_t() use.

Nothing prevents you to use it from your parser which will be located
in string_*() namespace.

I don't agree. The mapping is quite similar, the only difference is that
you cannot write 47:11 in C source code to get an instance of dev_t.
(But you can write MKDEV(47, 11) which is close but IMHO unsuitable for
the sysfs interface.)

Other than that it's just that kstrtoul does
"49283083" -> 10111100000000000000001011 while kstrtodev_t does
"47:11" -> 10111100000000000000001011.

(nitpick: it's both not 1:1 as "0x2f0000b" maps to the same as "49283083",
but ...)

Yeah, this was just me being grumpy about "add to the commit message how
many potential _existing_ users may be converted". See the output of

With the difference that if we introduce a new standard we can
effectively kill the older ones. And that you now work towards
undeprecating simple_str* seems to confirm that we don't have the one
standard to rule them all yet.

=====

So, I'm trying to summarize the things we agree about and our
differences to maybe help finding an agreement. Trying to be objective
until the ==== below.

I think we agree about:

 - The dev_t specification provided by a user via sysfs should be parsed
   in a strict way.

 - A helper that takes a string as argument and yields a dev_t or an
   error is wanted.

The points we don't agree about yet are:

 a) naming of the function
    Uwe: It fits well into kstrto*(), so kstrtodev_t()
    Andy: It doesn't fit and feels like a layer violation

 b) Where to put the function
    Uwe: Put it into a global place for others to find
    Andy: Put it near the (for now) single user.
    (not sure this is really your position here)

 c) Helpers used to implement the str-to-dev_t helper
    Uwe: calling the already existing _parse_integer twice is fine
    Andy: let's create a helper that parses two integers with a given
          separator

====

I don't feel very strong about b), and could live with putting it near
the led trigger until a new user appears. Concerning a) I still think it
should have a name that should be obvious enough that a potential new
user finds it. And given that kstrto* already contains functions
converting strings to a given type this feels right for me. Andy
didn't suggest a definitive name, only string_* namespace. This is quite
crowded, the best representatives are probably the ones declared in
include/linux/string_helpers.h.

I looked a bit around for potential users of str-to-dev_t and
parse-two-integers. I found none for str-to-dev_t and only
dname_to_vma_addr() for the parse-two-integers helper. (But for
parse-two-integers the problem might be that I missed some as I don't
have a good idea how to grep for these.)

dname_to_vma_addr() takes a string in format "%lx-%lx", interprets the
numbers as base16 without 0x prefix and leading zeros and doesn't accept
a trailing \n. Sounds like a quest for someone being really motivated to
cover both (i.e. dname_to_vma_addr() and str-to-dev_t) in a single
versatile function.

Another way out would be to not take a dev_t from user-space to
determine the tty, but a name and use tty_dev_name_to_number() to get
the dev_t. (Which would add a second user to this globally exported
function. (The only other user is in staging.) :-)

I don't know how we can find an agreement, maybe we'd need some input
by someone else? There are quite some people who get this mail, maybe
someone read 'til here and cares enough to comment?

Best regards
Uwe

I'm not sure how best to handle this, but yes, your trigger can only be
enabled while the port is open currently. And no error is returned to a
user trying to enable the trigger before it has been opened.

But regardless of the error reporting, I don't think failing when the
port isn't open is the right thing to do as as this makes the interface
rather useless since you cannot enable a trigger from for example a udev
rule.

If this approach is to be used at all, it seems you may need to allocate
the struct tty when the trigger is enabled. And make sure you don't mess
up some other assumption in tty core...

My idea is instead to retry opening the device later. At least this
sounds easier.

I see ton of comments on this one, seems like there will be one more
version?

And I fear merge conflicts if you modify drivers/leds/Makefile...

Yes please. We don't allow feet shooting where it is easy to prevent,
and that is the case here.
