Hi Christian,

Looks this patch still missed in 5.16 kernel. Is it intentional?

Actually this patch does not totally fix the mismatch of lru list with mem_type as mem_type is changed in ->move() and lru list is changed after that.

During this small period, another eviction could still happed and evict this mismatched BO from sMam(say, its lru list is on vram domain) to sMem.

Yes, a stable tag is needed. vulkan guys say 5.14 hit this issue too.

I think that amdgpu_bo_move() does support copy from sysMem to sysMem correctly.
maybe something below is needed.
diff --git a/drivers/gpu/drm/amd/amdgpu/amdgpu_ttm.c b/drivers/gpu/drm/amd/amdgpu/amdgpu_ttm.c

                ttm_bo_move_null(bo, new_mem);
                goto out;

otherwise, amdgpu_move_blit() is called to do the system memory copy which use a wrong address.
 206         /* Map only what can't be accessed directly */
 207         if (!tmz && mem->start != AMDGPU_BO_INVALID_OFFSET) {
 208                 *addr = amdgpu_ttm_domain_start(adev, mem->mem_type) +
 209                         mm_cur->start;
 210                 return 0;
 211         }

line 208, *addr is zero. So when amdgpu_copy_buffer submit job with such addr, page fault happens.

Mhm, I'm not sure what the rational behind that is.

Not moving the BO would make things less efficient, but should never cause a crash.

Maybe we should add a CC: stable tag and push it to -fixes instead?
