SubjectRe: Via-Rhine stalls - transmit errors
Date
Regarding, issue #6 (or whatever one that was)
Ownership bits, tx rings and other fun stuff:
Here's a bunch of logs I generated which clearly show a problem
with perhaps missed interrupts? mishandled ownership bits??
I do not know the cause but here's the evidence.

Info:
Logs are generated using a modified kernel driver.
Major changes in operation include abort handling from linuxfet driver.
However, you'll notice the problem I'm talking about does not occur
after either Abort or Aborted interrupt. In fact, I think I have previously
detected the same problem with the original driver.

More Info:
These are sections of a dmesg -c >> log of an scp transfer
between laptop and desktop. The desktop stubbornly refused to stall this time
(but it stalls other times!), however, the laptop stalled every once in a
while so it generated the timeout messages I was looking for. The transfer
has to be INITIATED from the laptop - didn't stall otherwise (but I'm not
sure about any hardware tests - I'd prefer to look at logs)

So, here are the logs with commentary:

At the beginning, a normal? log

//-----------------------------------------------------//
frame number is evidence that my frame-1 fix is working.
this log seems normal, except
1) are the addresses supposed to be initialized ? rx addresses are ...
2) what exactly do addr and next_desc point to? how can i check those
addresses.

------------------------------------------------------
Anyway, here's the abnormal piece causing the problems:
Look at txstatus - notice one 0002 interrupt (tx done) removes 2 ownership
bits, after which another interrupt removes 0, transmit stops soon, and the
queue keeps going on until timeout. In another log, I recorded many
exit_status interrupts between the ownership lock
and the NETDEV timeout. After the timeout, addr fields are marked bad.
Here's the log:

Descriptor messages PRECEDE the interrupt message.
(Interrupt has occured but you get the message after the ownership logs)

Notice the cur->tx and dirty->tx reported after timeout.

0002 is the transmit interrupt, 0001 is the receive one
