SubjectRe: Fw: Re: Bug in pci_restore_msi_state

I couldn't find the original thread so I am restarting one adding I hope
the appropriate people to the cc list.

Andrew thanks for forwarding this one. I finally see enough of this to
see what is going on.

The question is about the following sequence from libata.



Should this be allowed?

Specifically should pci_disable_device() be allowed when we have
device resources requested and potentially in use.

Specifically should pci_enable_device() be expected to cope with the
case where we are already using some a pci devices resources?


If this sequence is sane pci_enable_device needs to not reset dev->irq
In this case I guess it is acpi_pci_irq_enable doing that.

If this sequence is not sane we can just put outlaw calling
pci_disable_device when msi is enabled and fix it that way.

The suggestion below of setting msi_enabled to 0. While it will avoid
the immediate problem, leaves us still having requested the msi
irq (which won't work now) and so we won't be in a state where we can
do useful things after resume, plus we would wind up leaking the
msi state.

I think fixing pci_enable_device to cope when a device is already in
use is likely to be the path of least resistance.

If suspend to disk needs to cope with any pci resource assignment
changes then we need to free all irqs and all pci bars before the
suspend and reallocate them after the resume, and we should outlaw
pci_disable_device with pci device resources in use.
