For some MMC cards over SPI bus, it needs to lock the SPI bus for its own
use.  The SPI transfer must not be interrupted by other SPI devices that
share the SPI bus with SPI MMC card.

This patch introduces 2 APIs for SPI bus locking operation.

The MMC/SPI spec does not play well with typical SPI design -- it often
needs to send out a command in one message, read a response, then do some
other arbitrary step.  Since we can't let another SPI client use the bus
during this time, use the new SPI lock/unlock functions to provide the
required exclusivity.

Hello Mike,

This is the first time I have seen this patch.  I might have missed it
previously.

I would like to test it on my ep93xx system but have some question below.

I assume the spi master driver must supply the {lock/unlock}_bus methods
to properly support the locking.  But, by returning 0 when the methods
are not supplied you are basically saying all the current master drivers
in mainline support bus locking.  I think this is really only "true" if
spi->master->num_chipselect == 1.

Also, do you have a master driver that does have the {lock/unlock}_bus
methods?  I would like to see how you handled it.

Regards,
Hartley

currently, yes.  a common solution would be nice.  ideas/patches welcome ;).

right, but that is no different from what we have today.  there is no
way for a client to guarantee exclusive access, so you cant write code
assuming it in the first place.  the only consumer thus far (mmc_spi)
actually errors out if such conditions exist.

in other words, we arent breaking anything.

Removing the above block of code causes:

drivers/mmc/host/mmc_spi.c:1299: warning: 'maybe_count_child' defined but not used

That function should also be removed along with the "struct count_children"
definition.

Hence spi_lock_bus() basically has to use a spinning lock?

So code which has called spi_lock_bus() cannot sleep until it calls
spi_unlock_bus()?

That's worth mentioning in the description.

That's crazy.

Calling spi_unlock_bus() without having earlier called spi_lock_bus()
is a bug, and the kernel's response should be to go BUG(), not to
silently ignore the bug.  Especially as the implementation will need to
add extra code to silently ignore the bug!

Perhaps the comment wasn't well thought-out.  I cannot tell because I
cannot see any implementations of ->lock_bus() anywhere.

I can't find any code anywhere which puts a non-zero value into
spi_master.[un]lock_bus so in my tree at least, neither of these
patches do anything.

This makes it all a bit hard to understand and review.

Actually you are breaking the mmc_spi driver.

By returning 0 when the methods are not supplied you are saying that the
master driver supports and locked the bus.  At a minimum, I think spi_lock_bus()
should return an error code if locking is not supported.

Also, as Andrew Morton pointed out, calling spi_unlock_bus() without having
a valid lock by calling spi_lock_bus() is a bug.

In addition your patch to mmc_spi should check the return code from
spi_lock_bus().  If the driver "requires" that the bus be locked it should
trigger an error path if it cannot be locked.

Oiy... The lock/unlock functions are simple enough but the change needed
to bfin_spi_pump_messages() is a bit complicated.

What happens to next_msg if it is for other devices on the bus?

no we arent.  the current code does some sloppy checking for possible
concurrent access and then aborts.  the new code drops that sloppy
checking in place of the bus master doing it right.  any setup that is
working today will continue to work fine.  and setup *that is already
broken* will continue to be broken.

The implementation for blackfin spi master is in
drivers/spi/spi_bfin5xx.c:
http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/vapier/blackfin.git;a=commitdiff;h=cc54fa8ed63e11a000031bc650d41d57b441803d

As you mentioned, if a spi device calls spi_unlock_bus() without calling
spi_lock_bus() before, it should be returned an error. This will be
fixed in next version of the patch.

Thanks for the feedback.

The original thought of returning '0' was trying not to break mmc_spi
driver on system without spi_lock_bus() implementation.
What do you think of a check in mmc_spi_probe() like this?

if (spi->master->num_chipselect > 1 && !spi->master->lock_bus) {
	struct count_children cc;

	cc.n = 0;
	cc.bus = spi->dev.bus;
	status = device_for_each_child(spi->dev.parent, &cc,
		maybe_count_child);
	if (status < 0) {
		dev_err(&spi->dev, "can't share SPI bus\n");
		return status;
	}

	dev_warn(&spi->dev, "ASSUMING SPI bus stays unshared!\n");
}

And spi_lock_bus() still returns 0 if not implemented.

In spi_bf5xx.c, if a spi device (e.g, whose chip select number is "3")
locks the bus, the global status "locked" is set to "3" - indicates the
spi bus is locked.

This spi message will be left in the queue until the spi bus is
unlocked. The messages for the spi device holding the lock will be
selected and transferred firstly.

should add might_sleep() to the common spi_lock_bus() function then.

there's nothing Blackfin-specific in the implementation of these
functions.  i think the way we should be handling these is by doing:
 - remove {lock,unlock}_bus functions from spi_master
 - move the {lock,unlock}_bus code from spi_bfin5xx.c to spi.c
 - drop the SPI_BFIN_LOCK Kconfig
 - add a new spi_master flag to spi.h like SPI_MASTER_HALF_DUPLEX --
SPI_MASTER_LOCK_BUS
 - have spi_bfin5xx.c/bfin_sport_spi.c add that flag to its master setup
 - have the common spi code key off of that flag to return ENOSYS
 - have the mmc_spi code check that bit in the master before falling
back to its hack

Has any additional work be done on this patchset?

It would be nice to finally have a solution that lets the mmc_spi driver
work on a shared spi bus.

Hartley

the latest patch is on the list for _anyone_ to contribute their fixes
to address the posted issues
