Subject[PATCH] [v3] ipmi: retry to get device id when error
Date
We can't get bmc's device id with low probability when loading ipmi driver,
it caused bmc device register failed. When this issue happened, we got
below kernel prints:
[Wed Sep 9 19:52:03 2020] ipmi_si IPI0001:00: IPMI message handler: device id demangle failed: -22
[Wed Sep 9 19:52:03 2020] IPMI BT: using default values
[Wed Sep 9 19:52:03 2020] IPMI BT: req2rsp=5 secs retries=2
[Wed Sep 9 19:52:03 2020] ipmi_si IPI0001:00: Unable to get the device id: -5
[Wed Sep 9 19:52:04 2020] ipmi_si IPI0001:00: Unable to register device: error -5

When this issue happened, we want to manually unload the driver and try to
load it again, but it can't be unloaded by 'rmmod' as it is already 'in use'.

We add below 'printk' in handle_one_recv_msg(), when this issue happened,
the msg we received is "Recv: 1c 01 d5", which means the data_len is 1,
data[0] is 0xd5(completion code), which means "bmc cannot execute command.
Command, or request parameter(s), not supported in present state".
Debug code:
static int handle_one_recv_msg(struct ipmi_smi *intf,
struct ipmi_smi_msg *msg) {
printk("Recv: %*ph\n", msg->rsp_size, msg->rsp);
... ...
}
Then in ipmi_demangle_device_id(), it returned '-EINVAL' as 'data_len < 7'
and 'data[0] != 0'.

We used this patch to retry to get device id when error happen, we
reproduced this issue again and the retry succeed on the first retry, we
finally got the correct msg and then all is ok:
Recv: 1c 01 00 01 81 05 84 02 af db 07 00 01 00 b9 00 10 00

So use retry machanism in this patch to give bmc more opportunity to
correctly response kernel when we received specific completion codes.
