Subject[RFC 0/1] net/mlx5: Failing fw tracer allocation on s390

I sent this message before, but it seems to have fallen through the cracks so,
as this remains an issue I wanted to ping you again.

On s390 the MLX5 driver generates the following stack trace when
initializing a device with support for firmware tracing.

This happens because on s390 FORCE_MAX_ZONEORDER is 9 instead of 11, such
a large kzalloc() allocation will thus always fail. As the tracer is
a debug feature and failing allocations are checked the device remains
usable but of course we still want to enable this feature and get rid of the

Looking at mlx5_fw_tracer_save_trace() I would think that since it is
actually the driver not the device that copies into the trace array we can
just use kvzalloc() instead. This patch prevents the above stack trace for
us, though

I haven't yet been able to test the tracing as the devlink command given in
the initial commit fd1483fe1f9f ("net/mlx5: Add support for FW reporter
dump") always reports 'Object "health" not found' for me even after
enabling it via

echo traceon > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/mlx5/mlx5_fw/enable

Still I wanted to get your comments on the proposed fix and maybe a hint at
how to test this.

Best regards,
Niklas Schnelle
