setup_initrd() does not appear to serve a practical purpose other than
preventing qemu boots with "-initrd" parameter, so let's drop it.

I missed this for the merge window but I think it's suitable for an RC so I'll 
target it for next week.  It's at kernel.org/palmer/linux.git/fix-initrd and 
I've added it to for-next.

Thanks!

With this patch I can't boot in QEMU.  It might be something with my setup, 
though.  I'm testing with a unified BBL+vmlinux, and using QEMU 3.0.0-rc3 (I 
should probably update that one, but I don't remember anything going by).  Do 
you have time to take a look?  Here's my QEMU commandline

./riscv64-softmmu/qemu-system-riscv64    -nographic    -machine virt    -smp 4    -m 2G    -kernel /home/palmer/work/riscv/riscv-pk/build/bbl -object rng-random,filename=/dev/urandom,id=rng0    -device virtio-rng-device,rng=rng0    -append "console=ttyS0 ro root=/dev/vda"    -device virtio-blk-device,drive=hd0    -drive file=stage4-disk.img,format=raw,id=hd0    -device virtio-net-device,netdev=usernet    -netdev user,id=usernet,hostfwd=tcp::10000-:22

I just tagged the PR I plan to submit for RC2 tomorrow, so at least it should 
be easy for everyone to get on the same page.

Odd. Maybe 'RISC-V: Support separate firmware and kernel payload' creates
incompatibilities, or you have an embedded initrd in your kernel image
and that somehow doesn't work (I thought I tested that but maybe I didn't).

Unfortunately, I have no means to generate a unified bbl+vmlinux,
I would have to set it up, and I won't have time anytime soon to do that.
Guess we'll have to live with broken initrd for non-unified builds.
I'll just drop the initrd boot tests from my setup.

The underlying problem is probably that __initramfs_size == 512 even
if there is no embedded initrd. Result is that initrd_start and initrd_end
are always overwritten, even if provided and even if there is no embedded
initrd. Result is that initrd_start and initrd_end are always overwritten,
and -initrd from the qemu command line is always ignored.

A less invasive fix than mine would be

-	if (__initramfs_size > 0) {
+	if (__initramfs_size > 0 && !initrd_start) {

Any chance you can test that with your setup ?

Thanks,

You should just delete the last four lines above.  They serve no purpose.

You mean the entire if() statement plus the variable declarations ?

That works for me, for both embedded initrd and initrd specified with
-initrd option, but we still need someone to test if it works for 
Palmer's use case, ie with vmlinux (and possibly initrd) embedded in
bbl.

I tested the above both with external initrd and with integrated
initramfs; both work for me.

Should I resend my patch, using the above, or do you want to create
a patch yourself ?

Thanks,

You should send one, then it'll go through my regular pre-PR testing flow to 
make sure it works on my end.  I just never trust these inline patches to be 
exact, even if it's unlikely there's any confusion on a patch this simple (at 
least, mechanically simple -- I'm afraid I still don't understand why the logic 
is incorrect).

Done.

There is no need to override initrd_start and initrd_end; populate_rootfs()
uses __initramfs_start and __initramfs_size directly when loading a built-in
initramfs. initrd_start and initrd_end, on the other side, are for an external
initrd, loaded separately (and initialized in __early_init_dt_declare_initrd()).

Hope this helps,
Guenter
