Subject: [dpdk-dev] Interrupt is catched in kernel, but not handled
Date: Sat, 30 Nov 2019 10:40:38 +0200
Message-ID: <CAJ2oMhKAP5ZNG7-+vATSgEGtoSdEBe+JsX_MtjMWNC_Te2s3-w@mail.gmail.com> (raw)


This is not a specific dpdk question, but more related to using of
Unfortunately, I don't find any examples of using the generic driver
from userspace, so this is my last hope to reach a suggestion.

I installed centos8 , and I use uio_pci_generic, in order to
communicate with FPGA (Xilinx) through PCIe in userspace.

The cpu is ATOM cpu.

I first install the driver:
echo "10ee 0007" > /sys/bus/pci/drivers/uio_pci_generic/new_id

Reading from BAR works perfectly but there is an issue with interrupts.

I use userspace application which wait for interrupt, exactly as
described in code example here:

I than trigger an interrupt from FPGA, but no print from the userspace
application is given and there is an exception:

[ 91.183054] Disabling IRQ #23

So, I started debugging this issue in kernel uio_pci_generic.c code,
and according to the prints below, it seems that irq is catched but
not delivered to userspace:

static irqreturn_t irqhandler(int irq, struct uio_info *info)
struct uio_pci_generic_dev *gdev = to_uio_pci_generic_dev(info);
printk("i'm here 1\n"); <<--- this is printed
if (!pci_check_and_mask_intx(gdev->pdev))
return IRQ_NONE;
printk("i'm here 2\n"); <<--- but this is NOT printed
/* UIO core will signal the user process. */
Reading documentation, I see that pci_check_and_mask_intx is actually
checking if interrupt bit is set in configuration space. Since it
seems to return 0 ,it should mean that it finds that this bit is not
But how can it be that irq is triggered and status bit is not enabled
in configuration space ?

The device appear as following with lspci -vv:

I also verified that there are no additional irq numbered 23 except
for our device.

How can it be that irq is catched, but not delivered to userspace ?
Any suggestion is much appreciated,
