[PATCH] drm/amdgpu: csa_vaddr should not larger than AMDGPU_GMC_HOLE_START

Hi Christian,

Your solution as:
now max_pfn = 0x10 0000 0000, AMDGPU_VA_RESERVED_SIZE = 0x10 0000, AMDGPU_PAGE_SHIFT = 12
Still got addr = 0xFFFF FFF0 0000, which would cause ring gfx timeout.

Before commit 1bf621c42137926ac249af761c0190a9258aa0db, vm_size was 32GB, and csa_addr was under AMDGPU_GMC_HOLE_START.
I didn’t understand why csa_addr need to be above AMDGPU_GMC_HOLE_START now.

Hi Wentao,

well the problem is you don't seem to understand how the hardware works.

See the engines see an MC address space with a hole in the middle, similar to the how x86 64bit CPU address space works. But the page tables are programmed linearly.

So the calculation in amdgpu_driver_open_kms() is correct because it takes the MC address and mages a linear page table index from it again.

The only thing we might need to fix here is shifting max_pfn before the subtraction and I doubt that even that is necessary.

Hi Christian,

Now vm_size was set to 0x4 0000 GB by below commit:

1bf621c42137926ac249af761c0190a9258aa0db drm/amdgpu: Remove unnecessary VM size calculations

So that max_pfn would be 0x10 0000 0000.

amdgpu_csa_vaddr would make max_pfn << 12 to get 0x1 0000 0000 0000, and then minus AMDGPU_VA_RESERVED_SIZE, to get 0xFFFF FFF0 0000

unfortunately this number was between AMDGPU_GMC_HOLE_START and AMDGPU_GMC_HOLE_END, so that amdgpu_gmc_sign_extend was called to make it 0xFFFF FFFF FFF0 0000

in amdgpu_driver_open_kms, extended csa_addr cannot be passed into amdgpu_map_static_csa directly, it would be above the limit of max_pfn.

So that csa_addr was restricted by AMDGPU_GMC_HOLE_MASK to make it possible for amdgpu_vm_alloc_pts.

But this restriction by AMDGPU_GMC_HOLE_MASK would make the address fall back into AMDGPU_GMC_HOLE again,  which causing GPU reset.

We just put amdgpu_csa_vaddr back to AMDGPU_GMC_HOLE_START, to avoid the address touching AMDGPU_GMC_HOLE.

By the way, if max_pfn was shift much to the left, it would always get zero, with or without min(*,*).

The fix is just completely incorrect since min(adev->vm_manager.max_pfn << AMDGPU_GPU_PAGE_SHIFT, AMDGPU_GMC_HOLE_START) still gives you 0 when we shift max_pfn to much to the left.

The correct solution is to substract the reserved size first and then shift. E.g.:
