Hi,

I tried your config under QEMU, it works.

In fact your console display is looping on itself, it ends at "printk: 
bootconsole [udbg0] disabled".

Looks like you get stuck at the time of switching to graphic mode. Need 
to understand why.

I'm not surprised that a real G4 differs from QEMU. For one thing, the real 
hardware uses i2c to connect to the graphics hardware.

I realized that the screen was not scrolling and output was missing. To see what 
was missed, I added a call to btext_clearscreen(). As you noted, it ends at the 
bootconsole disabled statement.

As I could not find any console output after that point, I then turned off the 
bootconsole disable. I realize this action may cause a different problem, but in 
this configuration, the computer hit a BUG Unable to handle kernel data access 
at 0x007a84fc. The faulting instruction address was 0x00013674. Those addresses 
look like physical, not virtual, addresses.

I then added pr_info statements to bracket the failure. In file 
drivers/video/fbdev/core/fb_ddc.c, the code reaches line 66, which is
	algo_data->setsda(algo_data->data, 1);
Both pointers seem OK with algo_data = 0xeedfb4bc, and algo_data->data = 
0xeedb25c. The code faults before returning. I then annotated that callback 
routine radeon_gpio_setsda(), and found that execution is OK to the end of the 
routine, but the fault happens on the return from this routine as though the 
stack were corrupted.

I will be busy for about 8 hours, but if you can think of any debugging I can do 
on this routine, please let me know.

Thanks,

Larry

Can you send me a picture of that BUG Unable to handle kernel data 
access with all the registers values etc..., together with the matching 
vmlinux ?

First thing is to identify where we are when that happens. That mean see 
what is at 0xc0013674. Can be done with 'ppc-linux-objdump -d vmlinux' 
(Or whatever your PPC objdump is named) and get the function code.

Then we need to understand how we reach that function and why it tries 
to access a physical address.


Another thing I'm thinking about, not necessarily related to that 
problem: Some buggy drivers do DMA from stack. This doesn't work anymore 
with CONFIG_VMAP_STACK. Most of them can be detected with 
CONFIG_DEBUG_VIRTUAL so you should activate it.

Hi,

Is that the vmlinux that corresponds to:

	BUG Unable to handle kernel data access at 0x007a84fc.
	The faulting instruction address was 0x00013674

Nevertheless, do you have a picture of the said BUG/Oops to see all 
registers ?

Because here, the address 0x13674 is not a data access:

This screenshot makes more sense with the vmlinux you provided, problem 
at 0xc00136dc.

That's in function power_save_ppc32_restore() in

Did you try with the patch at https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/1237387/ ?

I see the problem happens in kprobe_handler(). Can you try without 
CONFIG_KPROBE ?

In fact, you hit two bugs. The first one is due to CONFIG_VMAP_STACK. 
The second one has always existed (at least since kernel source tree has 
been in git).

First bug is in function enter_rtas() which tries to read data on stack 
by using the linear physical address translation. This cannot be used 
with VM stack, it must re-enable data MMU translation to access data on 
the stack.

Second bug is in kprobe_handler() function, which does:

	if (*addr != BREAKPOINT_INSTRUCTION)

addr is the address where the 'trap' happened. When a trap happens with 
MMU disabled, addr contains the physical address of the trap. 
kprobe_handler() tries to read the instruction using physical address 
whereas MMU is enabled, so you get a bad access either because the said 
address is not mapped, or because access to userspace is not allowed.


Due to the first bug, you get a 'machine check', and as 
current->thread.rtas_sp has not been cleared yet, the machine check 
handler jumps to 'machine_check_in_rtas'.

machine_check_in_rtas does a trap, which in turn triggers the second bug.


Once the first bug is fixed, the second one should not popup.

Can you test patch https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/1237929/ that 
fixes the first bug ?

Christophe,

When I apply that patch, there is an error at

When I change the 0x300 to 0x310 in two places, it builds OK. Is that OK?

Argh !

No you can't do that.

The following should solve it for your case.

With the above changes and all the other patches applied, the machine finally 
boots. It is so bloody slow that it takes a long time to do anything, but you 
finally got all the places that needed patches. I really lost track of how many 
bugs were fixed in the process, but I can now put that old box aside until time 
for v5.7.0-rc1. As you can tell, it only gets used to verify that PPC32 is 
working on real G4 hardware. It has no real value for any other function.

Thanks for the help,

Larry

I'll need to make it a bit different because it shoehorns into your 
config but won't fit if CONFIG_KVM_BOOK3S_32 is added.

Yes, I don't have a G4 myself but this is so much nested with other 
stuff for the powerpc 83xx than we can't avoid the changes impacting the 
G4 and other hash-MMU based PPC32 allthough the changes I'm doing are 
not targetted at those platform at first. And as the 83xx is a 603 core, 
it is non-hash so all hash related things can't be verified. Plus all 
those small parts like power saving, RTAS, etc... which are more specific.
And checking with all possible options is also not easy.

VMAP-STACK was really a challenging functionnality, I'm happy it made 
its way to mainline though.

Thanks to you for testing and for your patience.
