This patch series adds a new driver called xData-pcie for the Synopsys
DesignWare PCIe prototype.

The driver configures and enables the Synopsys DesignWare PCIe traffic
generator IP inside of prototype Endpoint which will generate upstream
and downstream PCIe traffic. This allows to quickly test the PCIe link
throughput speed and check is the prototype solution has some limitation
or not.

Changes:
 V2: Rework driver according to Greg Kroah-Hartman' feedback
 V3: Fixed issues detected while running on 64 bits platforms
     Rebased patches on top of v5.11-rc1 version
 V4: Rework driver according to Greg Kroah-Hartman' feedback
     Add the ABI doc related to the sysfs implemented on this driver
 V5: Rework driver accordingly to Leon Romanovsky's feedback
     Rework driver accordingly to Krzysztof Wilczyński's feedback

+Driver for Synopsys DesignWare PCIe traffic generator (also known as xData)
+===========================================================================
+
+This driver should be used as a host-side (Root Complex) driver and Synopsys
+DesignWare prototype that includes this IP.
+
+The "dw-xdata-pcie" driver can be used to enable/disable PCIe traffic
+generator in either direction (mutual exclusion) besides allowing the
+PCIe link performance analysis.
+
+The interaction with this driver is done through the module parameter and
+can be changed in runtime. The driver outputs the requested command state
+information to /var/log/kern.log or dmesg.

Add Synopsys xData IP driver maintainer.

This driver aims to support Synopsys xData IP and is normally distributed
along with Synopsys PCIe EndPoint IP as a PCIe traffic generator (depends
of the use and licensing agreement).

I said patch 2 and 3 should be merged into 1 before, right?  Why ignore
that suggestion?  Otherwise build errors/issues will get attributed to
the wrong commit...

I don't know and maybe this is how modern drivers are developed now, but my
laptop doesn't have anything driver and vendor specific related under plain
/sys/kernel/* directory.

Also it is very uncommon in large subsystems to see custom sysfs entries
for the specific driver. I wonder why this dw-xdata-pcie driver is different.

Thanks

Do not put units in a sysfs file, that should be in the documentation,
otherwise this forces userspace to "parse" the units which is a mess.

Same for the other sysfs file.

And why do you need a lock for this show function?

It is not, and should not do that at all.

Okay.

Maybe I understood it wrongly, please correct me in that case. The 
dw_xdata_perf() is called on the write_show() and read_show(), to avoid a 
possible race condition between those calls, I have added this mutex.
Thanks.

What race?  If the value changes with a write right after a read, what
does it matter?

What exactly are you trying to protect with this lock?

The write_store() does a procedure to enable the traffic on the write 
direction, however, the write_show() does a different procedure to 
calculate the link throughput speed, which uses a different set of 
registers on the HW.

Similar happens on the read_store() (which enable the traffic on the read 
direction) and on the read_show()

To summarize write_store() follows the same approach of read_store() and 
the write_show() of the read_show(). I added the mutex on those functions 
for instance to avoid while during the write_show() call the possibility 
of been called the read_show() messing up the link throughput speed 
calculation.
Or while during the write_store() call to be called the read_store or 
even the write_show() for the same reasons.

This is the reason why I added those mutexes, maybe this isn't necessary 
and it's overkill. Please advise me if a different approach can be done.

If you need to protect these types of things, but the lock down in the
function that does this, not above it which forces people to audit
everything and manually try to determine what lock is doing what for
what.

Make it impossible to get wrong, as it is, you have to do extra work
here to keep things working properly, always a bad idea in an api.

I think I understood what you mean, I will *reduce* the mutex scope to 
the basic functions that are called by the sysfs *_store() and *_show().

To be consistent.  It would be "DesignWare" in the sentence above.

I read and this is why I said it.
Documentation/process/license-rules.rst: "It exists for historic reasons."

Historic, for me, means that new code is better do not use this.

Nope, either is fine for new code, author gets to pick what they want.
Personally, I like the explicitness of "GPL v2" for a variety of
reasons.

Feel free to update the documentation.

Personally, I don't like two names for the same license. This is one of
the reasons why SPFX clearly marks the code license, It is why we have
"SPDX-License-Identifier: GPL-2.0" and not "SPDX-License-Identifier: GPL".

https://spdx.org/licenses/preview/
GNU General Public License v2.0 only 	        GPL-2.0-only
GNU General Public License v2.0 or later 	GPL-2.0-or-later
