    I looked at this when I first saw it (a couple of weeks ago), and I
    couldn't see any obvious reason this patch would cause this particular
    problem. I didn't want to revert the patch at that point as I feared it
    would cause other subtle problems. Given that you've got a work-around,
    it seemed best to just push this off past 3.0.

    Given the failing address passed to ioread32, this seems like it's
    probably the call to READ_BREADCRUMB -- I915_BREADCRUMB_INDEX is 0x21,
    which is an offset in 32-bit units within the hardware status page. If
    the status_page.page_addr value was zero, then the computed address
    would end up being 0x84.

    And, it looks like status_page.page_addr *will* end up being zero as a
    result of the patch in question. The patch resets the entire ring
    structure contents back to the initial values, which includes smashing
    the status_page structure to zero, clearing the value of
    status_page.page_addr set in i915_init_phys_hws.

    Here's an untested patch which moves the initialization of
    status_page.page_addr into intel_render_ring_init_dri. I note that
    intel_init_render_ring_buffer *already* has the setting of the
    status_page.page_addr value, and so I've removed the setting of
    status_page.page_addr from i915_init_phys_hws.

    I suspect we could remove the memset from intel_init_render_ring_buffer;
    it seems entirely superfluous given the memset in i915_init_phys_hws.

    Subject: [PATCH] drm/i915: Initialize RCS ring status page address in

    Physically-addressed hardware status pages are initialized early in
    the driver load process by i915_init_phys_hws. For UMS environments,
    the ring structure is not initialized until the X server starts. At
    that point, the entire ring structure is re-initialized with all new
    values. Any values set in the ring structure (including
    ring->status_page.page_addr) will be lost when the ring is

    This patch moves the initialization of the status_page.page_addr value
    to intel_render_ring_init_dri.
