SubjectProblems with Freescale DMA driver
Hello LKML,

I'm developing on a Freescale MPC8349EA MDS evaluation board. I'm
currently testing the DMA controller. It uses the CONFIG_FSL_DMA driver.

All tests were done with a recent git pull.

I built the CONFIG_DMATEST DMA test client, and it runs perfectly in the
absence of other DMA activity. Enabling CONFIG_NET_DMA and running the
DMA test client while network traffic is running causes failures such as
the following:

of-fsl-dma-channel e0008100.dma-channe: DMA halt timeout!

dma0chan0-test0: #12268: 7043 errors with src_off=0x1b6b dst_off=0x96e len=0x1be2

Is this to be expected? I thought the whole point of the DMAEngine API
was to enable sharing of DMA channels.

Another issue I noticed was running a network transfer from another
computer to the board. I get the following in dmesg, varying numbers of
times. This is with no other DMA activity running, dmatest is not
loaded. NET_DMA should be the only thing using the controller:

of-fsl-dma-channel e0008100.dma-channe: DMA halt timeout!
of-fsl-dma-channel e0008100.dma-channe: DMA halt timeout!
of-fsl-dma-channel e0008100.dma-channe: DMA halt timeout!
of-fsl-dma-channel e0008100.dma-channe: DMA halt timeout!
of-fsl-dma-channel e0008100.dma-channe: DMA halt timeout!
of-fsl-dma-channel e0008100.dma-channe: DMA halt timeout!
of-fsl-dma-channel e0008100.dma-channe: DMA halt timeout!
of-fsl-dma-channel e0008100.dma-channe: DMA halt timeout!
of-fsl-dma-channel e0008100.dma-channe: DMA halt timeout!

On the run where the above errors were printed,
/sys/class/dma/dma0chan0/memcpy_count increased by ~36000. Certainly the
DMA halt error doesn't happen for every single dma transaction.

Is this normal behavior, or is something broken in the driver?

I've CC'd the maintainers responsible for the FSL DMA driver, as well as
the generic DMA offload system.

Please CC me on any responses, I'm not subscribed to LKML.

I'm happy to help test any changes, or add information if it is needed,
please just ask.

Thanks,
Ira
