Changelog:
v2:
 * kbuild spotted that I didn't delete all code in patch #5, so deleted
   even more ulp_ops derefences.
v1: https://lore.kernel.org/linux-rdma/20210329085212.257771-1-leon@kernel.org
 * Go much deeper and removed useless ULP indirection
v0: https://lore.kernel.org/linux-rdma/20210324142524.1135319-1-leon@kernel.org
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

The following series fixes issue spotted in [1], where bnxt_re driver
messed with module reference counting in order to implement symbol
dependency of bnxt_re and bnxt modules. All of this is done, when in
upstream we have only one ULP user of that bnxt module. The simple
declaration of exported symbol would do the trick.

This series removes that custom module_get/_put, which is not supposed
to be in the driver from the beginning and get rid of nasty indirection
logic that isn't relevant for the upstream code.

Such small changes allow us to simplify the bnxt code and my hope that
Devesh will continue where I stopped and remove struct bnxt_ulp_ops too.

Thanks

From: Leon Romanovsky <leonro@nvidia.com>

The "select" kconfig keyword provides reverse dependency, however it
doesn't check that selected symbol meets its own dependencies. Usually
"select" is used for non-visible symbols, so instead of trying to keep
dependencies in sync with BNXT ethernet driver, simply "depends on" it,
like Kconfig documentation suggest.

* CONFIG_PCI is already required by BNXT
* CONFIG_NETDEVICES and CONFIG_ETHERNET are needed to chose BNXT

From: Leon Romanovsky <leonro@nvidia.com>

Convert indirect probe call to its direct equivalent to create
symbols link between RDMA and netdev modules. This will give
us an ability to remove custom module reference counting that
doesn't belong to the driver.

Instead of manually messing with parent driver module reference
counting rely on export symbol mechanism to ensure that proper
probe/remove chain is performed.

There is no other bnxt ULP driver in the upstream and all checks
for the ULP id are useless, so remove them and convert double array
table to proper pointer structure.

From: Leon Romanovsky <leonro@nvidia.com>

There is no need in any indirection complexity for one ULP user,
remove all this complexity in favour of direct calls to the exported
symbols. This allows us to greatly simplify the code.

Hi Leon,

After a couple of internal discussions we reached a conclusion to
implement the Auxbus driver interface and fix the problem once and for

Jason, it looks like we can proceed with this patchset, because in
auxbus mode this module refcount and ULP indirection logics will be
removed anyway.

Hi Leon,

In my internal testing, I am seeing a crash using the 3rd patch. I am
spending a few cycles on debugging it. expect my input in a day or so.

Can you please post the kernel crash report here?
I don't see how function rename in patch #3 can cause to the crash.

I looked too, I'm also quite surprised that 1,2,3 alone have a

It is interesting to see how my review skills from 2017 improved over years :).

Hi Leon,

The host crash I indicated earlier is actually caused by patch 4 and
not by patch 3 from this series. I spent time to root cause the
problem and realized that patch-4 is touching quite many areas which
would require much intrusive testing and validation.
As I indicated earlier, we are implementing the PCI Aux driver
interface at a faster pace. While PCI Aux changes are in progress we
are willing to retain the existing bnxt_re and bnxt_en interface
untouched.
The problem of module referencing would be rectified with PCI aux
change by inheritance.

Sorry no, the first three patches are not controversial and better to be
applied now. They do the right thing and they are correct.

There is a little trust in your promises above after you didn't show us kernel
panic despite our numerous requests. I also very sceptical in Broadcom ability
to provide auxbus implementation in timely manner.

It is worth to mention that auxbus won't eliminate the patches #4 and #5, but
will embed them into your auxbus conversion.

Jason, please take first three patches so internal HW IB driver won't do the crazy
module management that is totally out of scope for drivers/infiniband and not needed.

Thanks

This makes a lot more sense.

The ulp_id stuff does need to go away as well though.

Doing an aux driver doesn't mean you get to keep all these single
implementation function pointers - see the discussion around Intel's
patches.

The first three patches are clearly an improvement, and quite trivial,
so I'm going to take them.

We shall address this concern with Aux implementation.

Sure, We will try addressing this concern as well. Could you please
point me to the exact patches please...

To my mind the first 3 patches in this series are fine and I agree to
Ack those. Of-course I want to spend some more time
establishing all of our internal test harness  passing. I can Ack
those in a couple of days at the earliest.
Further, I do not want to proceed with patch 4 and 5 as those patches
are too intrusive and cause host hang/crash during rmmod bnxt_re
followed by rmmod bnxt_en.
Probably this is some kind of race. If I try to add a few prints to
the debug, the problem does not appear.
Since, we want to remain focused on PCI Aux implementation instead of
resolving instabilities at this point, we would like to pick up the
idea from 4 and 5 in our PCI Aux implementation.
