Subject: [PATCH V2 0/9] x86/intel_rdt: MBA integration fixes
Date: Sat, 15 Sep 2018 14:58:18 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1537048707-76280-1-git-send-email-fenghua.yu@intel.com> (raw)

Chen Yu reported an issue where reading the resctrl "size" file results in
a divide-by-zero issue on a system with a MBA resource. Further
investigation revealed more issues where the recent RDT features are not
well integrated with the MBA resource handling.

This series consists out of:
 - One helper function in support of fixes that need to know the number of
   supported CLOSIDs on the system (the minimum of all CLOSIDs of all
   resources).
 - The fix to the issue reported by Chen Yu  - now reading a resource
   group's "size" file will show a MB resource's allocation as its size.
 - A fix from Xiaochen Shen to the MB parsing callback that was never
   changed to accept a new parameter format.
 - Functions that iterate over the number of CLOSIDs need to take care
   whether it is using a particular resource's supported CLOSIDs or the
   number of CLOSIDs supported by the system. This was done incorrectly in
   a few places and fixed here.
 - When a new resource group is created it is intended to be configured
   with sane defaults. This new feature blindly assumed that the resource
   group only consists out of cache resources - make this explicit to not
   cause invalid register writes on a system with MBA resources.
 - The new "exclusive" mode assumes that all resources support a CBM, while
   a MBA resource does not. Since the MBA resource allocations cannot be
   done in a way to specify whether allocations can overlap or not the
   "exclusive" mode of a resource group will only apply to the cache
   resources within the group, if only a MBA resource is present then
   "exclusive" mode will not be allowed.

Changelog
v2:
 - Patch 1: Change 'data' from void pointer to struct rdt_parse_data
   pointer in parsing callbacks based on suggestion from Thomas.
 - Patch 2, 4, 5: Condense backtraces in commit description to minimum
   based on suggestion from Thomas
