Subject: [PATCH REPOST 1/2] can: flexcan: fix deadlock when using self wakeup
Date: Fri, 16 Aug 2019 08:20:41 +0000
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

As reproted by Sean Nyekjaer below:
When suspending, when there is still can traffic on the interfaces the
flexcan immediately wakes the platform again. As it should :-). But it
throws this error msg:
[ 3169.378661] PM: noirq suspend of devices failed

On the way down to suspend the interface that throws the error message does
call flexcan_suspend but fails to call flexcan_noirq_suspend. That means the
flexcan_enter_stop_mode is called, but on the way out of suspend the driver
only calls flexcan_resume and skips flexcan_noirq_resume, thus it doesn't call
flexcan_exit_stop_mode. This leaves the flexcan in stop mode, and with the
current driver it can't recover from this even with a soft reboot, it requires
a hard reboot.

The best way to exit stop mode is in Wake Up interrupt context, and then
suspend() and resume() functions can be symmetric. However, stop mode
request and ack will be controlled by SCU(System Control Unit) firmware(manage
clock,power,stop mode, etc. by Cortex-M4 core) in coming i.MX8(QM/QXP). And SCU
firmware interface can't be available in interrupt context.

For compatibillity, the wake up mechanism can't be symmetric, so we need
in_stop_mode hack.

Fixes: de3578c198c6 ("can: flexcan: add self wakeup support")

	* add Reported-by tag.
	* rebase on patch: can:flexcan:fix stop mode acknowledgment.
	* move into a patch set.
