This is kind of a status update.

Arnuschky wrote to me about this related Debian bug report:

Fri, 2010-06-18 10:21:05 +0000
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=586312

I popped over to #radeon on freenode where user agd5f told me to
try the following on the kernel command line:

pci=nomsi

After reading about MSIs and the requisite CONFIG_* settings, I
realized that I didn't even have MSI support in the kernel anyway.
Then agd5f suggested the following patches by Benjamin Herrenschmidt
might be of help:

http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/dri-devel/2011-July/012980.html
http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/dri-devel/2011-July/012981.html

the latter of which fixes a syncronization bug on systems that use
non-MSI IRQs (presumably pin-based IRQs) for the radeon device/driver.

For my system, I decided to enable MSI/MSI-X support by building
Linux with the following configuration variables set:

CONFIG_PCI=y
CONFIG_X86_LOCAL_APIC=y
CONFIG_X86_IO_APIC=y
CONFIG_PCI_MSI=y

and making sure I get the following:

$ dmesg | grep MSI | grep radeon
radeon 0000:01:00.0: irq 42 for MSI/MSI-X
radeon 0000:01:00.0: radeon: using MSI.

I'm not sure if this will avoid the problem, but it sure seems like
a good bet.

Sincerely,
Michael Witten
