Subject[PATCH] fix sysfs showing the correct C-states after AC->DC and DC->AC transitions
Date
Hello,

I do have a Samsung NC20 netbook which provides the C-states C1 and C2 to the
OS when connected to AC, and additionally provides the C3 C-state when
disconnected from AC. With the current kernels I have these two problems
(regressions):

1. The number of C-states shown in sysfs is fixed to the number of C-states
present at boot.
If I boot with AC connected, I always only see the C-states up to C2 even
if I disconnect AC.

The reason is commit 130a5f692425e6237229598a8624da0a247f33d5
"ACPI / cpuidle: remove dev->state_count setting". It removes the update of
dev->state_count, but sysfs uses exactly this variable to show the
C-states.

The fix is to use drv->state_count in sysfs. As this is currently the last
user of dev->state_count, this variable can be completely removed. And this
is exactly what Bartlomiej Zolnierkiewicz's not yet applied patch "[PATCH
v2 9/9] cpuidle: remove state_count field from struct cpuidle_device"
http://marc.info/?m=138756533317836 does.

Long story short: That patch fixes problem 1 for me.

2. After a AC->DC or DC->AC transition, the name and description of the
POLLING C-state become "<null>".

Here, the reason is commit d7c7f103262bc2248548ed0e113e916e843c4eeb
"cpuidle: don't call poll_idle_init() for every cpu". It only calls
poll_idle_init() during cpuidle_register_driver() instead of
cpuidle_enable_device() and thus does not re-initialize the fields of
drv->states[0] after acpi_processor_setup_cpuidle_states() cleared them.

Here, the fix is to _not_ clear drv->states[0] in
acpi_processor_setup_cpuidle_states(). For this purpose I created a small
patch.

For your convenience, both of the fixing patches are attached to this mail.
The first one is necessary for all kernels since 3.14, the second one for all
kernels since 3.13. So I'd propose to push both of them also to the necessary
stable kernels.

Kind regards,
ThomasFrom cce99e1975a03b15e374dcd42099448a22390c65 Mon Sep 17 00:00:00 2001

Subject: [PATCH 1/2] cpuidle: remove state_count field from struct
cpuidle_device

dev->state_count is now always equal to drv->state_count so
it can be removed.

Subject: [PATCH 2/2] ACPI / cpuidle: do not overwrite name and description of
C0

This fixes a bug that leads to showing name and description of C-state C0 as
"<null>" in sysfs after the ACPI C-states changed (e.g. after AC->DC or DC->AC
transition).

The function poll_idle_init() in drivers/cpuidle/driver.c initializes the
state 0 during cpuidle_register_driver(). So we better do not overwrite it
again with '\0' during acpi_processor_cst_has_changed().
