      powerpc/pseries: Update CPU maps when device tree is updated · 5d88aa85
      Jesse Larrew authored
      Platform events such as partition migration or the new PRRN firmware
      feature can cause the NUMA characteristics of a CPU to change, and these
      changes will be reflected in the device tree nodes for the affected
      This patch registers a handler for Open Firmware device tree updates
      and reconfigures the CPU and node maps whenever the associativity
      changes. Currently, this is accomplished by marking the affected CPUs in
      the cpu_associativity_changes_mask and allowing
      arch_update_cpu_topology() to retrieve the new associativity information
      using hcall_vphn().
      Protecting the NUMA cpu maps from concurrent access during an update
      operation will be addressed in a subsequent patch in this series.

      powerpc/pseries: Update firmware_has_feature() to check architecture vector 5 bits · f0ff7eb4
      Nathan Fontenot authored
      The firmware_has_feature() function makes it easy to check for supported
      features of the hypervisor. This patch extends the capability of
      firmware_has_feature() to include checking for specified bits
      in vector 5 of the architecture vector as reported in the device tree.
      As part of this the #defines used for the architecture vector are re-defined
      such that each option has the index into vector 5 and the feature bit encoded
      into it. This makes checking for architecture bits when initiating data
      for firmware_has_feature much easier.

      it to be bigger and checking to make sure there is a valid entry in every

      array looping with the use of ARRAY_SIZE().

      powerpc/pseries: Move architecture vector definitions to prom.h · 530b5e14
      Nathan Fontenot authored
      As part of handling of PRRN events we need to check vector 5 of the
      architecture vector bits reported in the device tree to ensure PRRN event
      handling is enabled. To do this firmware_has_feature() is updated (in a
      subsequent patch) to make this check vector 5 bits. To avoid having to
      re-define bits in the architecture vector the bit definitions are moved
      to prom.h.

      powerpc/pseries: Add PRRN RTAS event handler · 49c68a85
      Jesse Larrew authored
      A PRRN event is signaled via the RTAS event-scan mechanism, which
      returns a Hot Plug Event message "fixed part" indicating "Platform
      Resource Reassignment". In response to the Hot Plug Event message,
      we must call ibm,update-nodes to determine which resources were
      reassigned and then ibm,update-properties to obtain the new affinity
      information about those resources.
      The PRRN event-scan RTAS message contains only the "fixed part" with
      the "Type" field set to the value 160 and no Extended Event Log. The
      four-byte Extended Event Log Length field is re-purposed (since no
      Extended Event Log message is included) to pass the "scope" parameter
      that causes the ibm,update-nodes to return the nodes affected by the
      specific resource reassignment.
      This patch adds a handler for RTAS events. The function
      pseries_devicetree_update() (from mobility.c) is used to make the
      ibm,update-nodes/ibm,update-properties RTAS calls. Updating the NUMA maps
      (handled by a subsequent patch) will require significant processing,
      so pseries_devicetree_update() is called from an asynchronous workqueue
      to allow event processing to continue.
      PRRN RTAS events on pseries systems are rare events that have to be
      initiated from the HMC console for the system by an IBM tech. This allows
      us to assume that these events are widely spaced. Additionally, all work
      on the queue is flushed before handling any new work to ensure we only have
      one event in flight being handled at a time.

      Correct parsing of the buffer returned from ibm,update-properties. The first

      powerpc/pseries: Expose pseries devicetree_update() · 762ec157
      Nathan Fontenot authored
      Newer firmware on Power systems can transparently reassign platform resources
      (CPU and Memory) in use. For instance, if a processor or memory unit is
      predicted to fail, the platform may transparently move the processing to an
      equivalent unused processor or the memory state to an equivalent unused
      memory unit. However, reassigning resources across NUMA boundaries may alter
      the performance of the partition. When such reassignment is necessary, the
      Platform Resource Reassignment Notification (PRRN) option provides a
      mechanism to inform the Linux kernel of changes to the NUMA affinity of
      its platform resources.
      When rtasd receives a PRRN event, it needs to make a series of RTAS
      calls (ibm,update-nodes and ibm,update-properties) to retrieve the
      updated device tree information. These calls are already handled in the
      pseries_devicetree_update() routine used in partition migration.
      This patch exposes pseries_devicetree_update() to make it accessible
      to other pseries routines, this patch also updates pseries_devicetree_update()
      to take a 32-bit scope parameter. The scope value, which was previously hard
      coded to 1 for partition migration, is used for the RTAS calls
      ibm,update-nodes/properties to update the device tree.

      powerpc: Fix hardware IRQs with MMU on exceptions when HV=0 · 3e96ca7f
      Michael Neuling authored
      POWER8 allows us to take interrupts with the MMU on.  This gives us a
      second set of vectors offset at 0x4000.
      Unfortunately when coping these vectors we missed checking for MSR HV
      for hardware interrupts (0x500).  This results in us trying to use
      HSRR0/1 when HV=0, rather than SRR0/1 on HW IRQs
      The below fixes this to check CPU_FTR_HVMODE when patching the code at
      Also we remove the check for CPU_FTR_ARCH_206 since relocation on IRQs
      are only available in arch 2.07 and beyond.
      Thanks to benh for helping find this.

      powerpc: Add isync to copy_and_flush · 29ce3c50
      Michael Neuling authored
      In __after_prom_start we copy the kernel down to zero in two calls to
      copy_and_flush.  After the first call (copy from 0 to copy_to_here:)
      we jump to the newly copied code soon after.
      Unfortunately there's no isync between the copy of this code and the
      jump to it.  Hence it's possible that stale instructions could still be
      in the icache or pipeline before we branch to it.
      We've seen this on real machines and it's results in no console output
        calling quiesce...
        returning from prom_init
      The below adds an isync to ensure that the copy and flushing has
      completed before any branching to the new instructions occurs.
