	Hi all,

This patch series adds generic support for parsing DT properties related
to crash dump kernels ("linux,elfcorehdr" and "linux,elfcorehdr" under
the "/chosen" node), makes use of it on arm32, and performs a few
cleanups.  It is an evolution of the combination of [1] and [2].

The series consists of 6 parts:
  1. Patch 1 prepares architecture-specific code (needed for MIPS only)
     to avoid duplicating elf core header reservation later.
  2. Patch 2 prepares the visibility of variables used to hold
     information retrieved from the DT properties.
  3. Patches 3-5 add support to the FDT core for handling the
     properties.
     This can co-exist safely with architecture-specific handling, until
     the latter has been removed.
  4. Patch 6 removes the non-standard handling of "linux,elfcorehdr" on
     riscv.
  5. Patches 7-8 convert arm64 to use the generic handling instead of
     its own implementation.
  6. Patch 9 adds support for kdump properties to arm32.
     The corresponding patch for kexec-tools is "[PATCH] arm: kdump: Add
     DT properties to crash dump kernel's DTB"[3], which is still valid.

Changes compared to v4[4]:
  - New patch "[PATCH v5 1/9] MIPS: Avoid future duplicate elf core
    header reservation",
  - Drop "memblock: Add variables for usable memory limitation", as this
    is now handled in FDT core code,
  - Make ELFCORE_ADDR_{MAX,ERR} visible, too,
  - Handle the actual elf core header reservation and memory capping in
    FDT core code,
  - Add Reviewed-by, Acked-by,
  - Remove all architecture-specific handling on arm64,
  - Drop "arm64: kdump: Use IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_CRASH_DUMP) instead of
    #ifdef", as the affected code is gone,
  - Remove the addition of "linux,elfcorehdr" and
    "linux,usable-memory-range" handling to arch/arm/mm/init.c.

Changes compared to older versions:
  - Make elfcorehdr_{addr,size} always visible,
  - Add variables for usable memory limitation,
  - Use IS_ENABLED() instead of #ifdef (incl. initrd and arm64),
  - Clarify what architecture-specific code is still responsible for,
  - Add generic support for parsing linux,usable-memory-range,
  - Remove custom linux,usable-memory-range parsing on arm64,
  - Use generic handling on ARM.
  
This has been tested with kexec/kdump on arm32 and arm64, and
boot-tested on riscv64 and DT-less MIPS.

Thanks!

Prepare for early_init_fdt_scan_reserved_mem() reserving the memory
occupied by an elf core header described in the device tree.
As arch_mem_init() calls early_init_fdt_scan_reserved_mem() before
mips_reserve_vmcore(), the latter needs to check if the memory has
already been reserved before.

Note that mips_reserve_vmcore() cannot just be removed, as not all MIPS
systems use DT.

Make the forward declarations of elfcorehdr_addr and elfcorehdr_size,
and the definitions of ELFCORE_ADDR_MAX and ELFCORE_ADDR_ERR always
available, like is done for phys_initrd_start and phys_initrd_size.
Code referring to these symbols can then just check for
IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_CRASH_DUMP), instead of requiring conditional
compilation using an #ifdef, thus preparing to increase compile
coverage.

There are two methods to specify the location of the elf core headers:
using the "elfcorehdr=" kernel parameter, as handled by generic code in
kernel/crash_dump.c, or using the "linux,elfcorehdr" property under the
"/chosen" node in the Device Tree, as handled by architecture-specific
code in arch/arm64/mm/init.c.

Extend support for "linux,elfcorehdr" to all platforms supporting DT by
adding platform-agnostic handling for handling this property to the FDT
core code.  This can co-exist safely with the architecture-specific
handling, until the latter has been removed.

This requires moving the call to of_scan_flat_dt() up, as the code
scanning the "/chosen" node now needs to be aware of the values of
"#address-cells" and "#size-cells".

Notes:
  1. To avoid reserving the region twice, this depends on "MIPS: Avoid
     duplicate elf core header reservation",
  2. IA64 also has custom code to reserve the region, but is not
     affected, as IA64 does not use DT,
  3. About the change to chosen.txt: I have a similar change for
     schemas/chosen.yaml in dt-schema.

v5:
  - Handle the actual reservation in generic code, too,

v4:
  - Use IS_ENABLED() instead of #ifdef,
  - Clarify what architecture-specific code is still responsible for.

Replace the conditional compilation using "#ifdef CONFIG_BLK_DEV_INITRD"
by a check for "IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_BLK_DEV_INITRD)", to increase compile
coverage and to simplify the code.

RISC-V uses platform-specific code to locate the elf core header in
memory.  However, this does not conform to the standard
"linux,elfcorehdr" DT bindings, as it relies on a reserved memory node
with the "linux,elfcorehdr" compatible value, instead of on a
"linux,elfcorehdr" property under the "/chosen" node.

The non-compliant code can just be removed, as the standard behavior is
already implemented by platform-agnostic handling in the FDT core code.

Add support for parsing the "linux,usable-memory-range" DT property.
This property is used to describe the usable memory reserved for the
crash dump kernel, and thus makes the memory reservation explicit.
If present, Linux no longer needs to mask the program counter, and rely
on the "mem=" kernel parameter to obtain the start and size of usable
memory.

For backwards compatibility, the traditional method to derive the start
of memory is still used if "linux,usable-memory-range" is absent.

The corresponding patch for kexec-tools is "[PATCH] arm: kdump: Add DT
properties to crash dump kernel's DTB", which is still valid:
https://lore.kernel.org/linux-arm-kernel/20200902154129.6358-1-geert+renesas@glider.be/

v5:
  - Remove the addition of "linux,elfcorehdr" and
    "linux,usable-memory-range" handling to arch/arm/mm/init.c,

v4:
  - Remove references to architectures in chosen.txt, to avoid having to
    change this again when more architectures copy kdump support,
  - Remove the architecture-specific code for parsing
    "linux,usable-memory-range" and "linux,elfcorehdr", as the FDT core
    code now takes care of this,
  - Move chosen.txt change to patch changing the FDT core,
  - Use IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_CRASH_DUMP) instead of #ifdef,

v3:
  - Rebase on top of accepted solution for DTB memory information
    handling, which is part of v5.12-rc1,

v2:
  - Rebase on top of reworked DTB memory information handling.

As pointed out by lkp, there's a closing parenthesis missing.

The DT bits look fine to me. How do you expect this to be merged? I'm 
happy to take it if arch maintainers can ack it.

Looks like patch 5 doesn't have any dependencies with the series?

I thought this should be applied for 5.14?

This one can be applied on its own, right?

Doing memblock_reserve() for the same region is usually fine, did you
encounter any issues without this patch?

I had hoped you could take the series...

Indeed. So you can take it independently.

Me too, but unfortunately that hasn't happened yet...

While that wouldn't break anything (i.e. no regression), it still
wouldn't work if the DT properties are present, and the now-legacy
"mem=" kernel command line parameter is not.

Does it also work if the same region is part of an earlier larger
reservation?  I am no memblock expert, so I don't know.
I didn't run into any issues, as my MIPS platform is non-DT, but I
assume arch/arm64/mm/init.c:reserve_elfcorehdr() had the check for
a reason.

Thanks!

The memory will be reserved regardless of the earlier reservation, the
issue may appear when the reservations are made for different purpose. E.g.
if there was crash kernel allocation before the reservation of elfcorehdr.

The check in such case will prevent the second reservation, but, at least
in arch/arm64/mm/init.c:reserve_elfcorehdr() it does not seem to prevent
different users of the overlapping regions to step on each others toes.

Moreover, arm64::reserve_elfcorehdr() seems buggy to me, because of there
is only a partial overlap of the elfcorehdr with the previous reservation,
the non-overlapping part of elfcorehdr won't get reserved at all.

If the kernel has been passed in overlapping regions, is there
anything you can do other than hope to get a message out?

What do you suggest as the arm64 version is not the common version?

My current thought is I'll take 2-5, 7 and 8 given that's what I have
acks for and the others can be applied independently.

Buried in the middle of this series is not going to encourage it to be
picked up as a fix.

Nothing really. I've been thinking about adding flags to memblock.reserved
to at least distinguish firmware regions from the kernel allocations, but I
never got to that.

I'm not really familiar with crash dump internals, so I don't know if
resetting elfcorehdr_addr to ELFCORE_ADDR_ERR is a good idea. I think at
least arm64::reserve_elfcorehdr() should reserve the entire elfcorehdr area
regardless of the overlap. Otherwise it might get overwritten by a random
memblock_alloc().

Note that Palmer did ack patch 6, so you can include it.

Russell: any thoughts about patch 9?

Right, but Palmer should have taken it if it's for 5.14.

Anyways, I've now applied patches 2-8. If we want to improve the
handling over what arm64 code did as discussed, I think that's a
separate patch anyways.
