SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/2] serial: imx: fix endless loop during suspend
Hi Fabio,

thanks for testing my patch. Sorry for breaking suspend on your board.

I tested on an imx258.

So the suspend_noirq step failed with -EBUSY.

My guess is that the following code path is taken


and pm_wakeup_pending() returns true. We'd then have an async_error

If that's the case, I don't understand why it happens for imx6q.
We should only have a pending wakeup event if wakeup_source_activate()
or ..._deactivate() has been called.

Seeing this kind of problem, I wonder if it's ok to move setting AWAKEN
from the suspend to the suspend_noirq step. The imx uart's interrupt is
now re-enabled and IRQD_WAKEUP_ARMED is set before we configure the uart
to generate such interrupts (by setting AWAKEN), whereas before, it was
the other way around. I'd be grateful if anyone could shed some light
on this. (Or more generally: When must the hardware be configured to
generate wakeup interrupts? Is it ok to do this in supend_noirq or must
it be done before?)

Fabio, could you post the output of

cat /sys/kernel/debug/suspend_stats

after supend failed, to confirm that we're failing below
