Subject: [Patch v4 0/6] Introduce LMh driver for Qualcomm SoCs
Date: Tue, 27 Jul 2021 11:25:06 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210727152512.1098329-1-thara.gopinath@linaro.org> (raw)

Limits Management Hardware(LMh) is a hardware infrastructure on some
Qualcomm SoCs that can enforce temperature and current limits as programmed
by software for certain IPs like CPU. On many newer SoCs LMh is configured
by firmware/TZ and no programming is needed from the kernel side. But on
certain SoCs like sdm845 the firmware does not do a complete programming of
the h/w block. On such SoCs kernel software has to explicitly set up the
temperature limits and turn on various monitoring and enforcing algorithms
on the hardware.

Introduce support for enabling and programming various limit settings and
monitoring capabilities of Limits Management Hardware(LMh) associated with
cpu clusters. Also introduce support in cpufreq hardware driver to monitor
the interrupt associated with cpu frequency throttling so that this
information can be conveyed to the schdeuler via thermal pressure
interface.

With this patch series following cpu performance improvement(30-70%) is
observed on sdm845. The reasoning here is that without LMh being programmed
properly from the kernel, the default settings were enabling thermal
mitigation for CPUs at too low a temperature (around 70-75 degree C).  This
in turn meant that many a time CPUs were never actually allowed to hit the
maximum possible/required frequencies.
