Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 4.14 023/371] switchtec: Remove immediate status check after submitting MRPC command
Date: Thu, 16 Jan 2020 12:11:31 -0500
Message-ID: <> (raw)

[ Upstream commit 526180408b815aa7b96fd48bd23cdd33ef04e38e ]

After submitting a Firmware Download MRPC command, Switchtec firmware will
delay Management EP BAR MemRd TLP responses by more than 10ms.  This is a
firmware limitation.  Delayed MemRd completions are a problem for systems
with a low Completion Timeout (CTO).

The current driver checks the MRPC status immediately after submitting an
MRPC command, which results in a delayed MemRd completion that may cause a
Completion Timeout.

Remove the immediate status check and rely on the check after receiving an
interrupt or timing out.

This is only a software workaround to the READ issue and a proper fix of
this should be done in firmware.
