When vfio module is not loaded when kernel support vfio feature,
the routine still try to open the container to get file
description.

This action is not safe, and of cause got error messages:

EAL: Detected 40 lcore(s)
EAL:   unsupported IOMMU type!
EAL: VFIO support could not be initialized
EAL: Setting up memory...

This may make user confuse, this patch make it reasonable
and much more soomth to user.

 v2 --> v1:
	1. Move check_module() from rte_common.h to eal_private.h
	   and rename to rte_eal_check_module().
	   To make it linuxapp only.
	2. Some code clean up.

Tested in host and guest, the below is results in VM:

1. VM | without patch | os: 3.11.10-301.fc20.x86_64 | VFIO not loaded

EAL: Support maximum 64 logical core(s) by configuration.
EAL: Detected 2 lcore(s)
EAL:   cannot open VFIO container, error 2 (No such file or directory)
EAL: VFIO support could not be initialized
EAL: Setting up memory...

2. VM | without patch | os: 3.11.10-301.fc20.x86_64 | VFIO loaded vfio_iommu_type1 not loaded
modprobe vfio

lsmod | grep "vfio"

 Not sure I agree with the premise of this patch.

First of all, if VFIO driver is not enabled, the container file would not be present and you would get a different error (namely, "cannot open VFIO container", in pci_vfio_get_container_fd()). If you have a container file,  that means VFIO driver is loaded, so I'm not sure why you get the "unsupported IOMMU type" error. I suppose it could happen when vfio is loaded but vfio_iommu_type1 isn't?

And even then, this error is harmless and doesn't do anything, so I'm not sure what this patch is supposed to fix. The error messages tells the user exactly what happens.
 
Thanks,
Anatoly

If you have a container file,  that means VFIO driver is loaded, so I'm not sure why you get the "unsupported IOMMU type" error. I suppose it could happen when vfio is loaded but vfio_iommu_type1 isn't?

But indeed, when try to unload both vfio and vfio_iommu_type1,
/dev/vfio/vfio still there, I'm also surprise.

My ENV is fedora20, kernel version 3.6.7-200 X86_64.

Believe or not, you can have a try, it seems a kernel issue.

When you unload both two modules, then open /dev/vfio/vfio, you will
find it can be opened with no errors(but this time both two modules
loaded automatically, strange enough)

Also you can use ioctl to get API Version. But when you try to get the
iommu type, it will return a "0" not expect value of  '1'.

Then you can shutdown DPDK, reopen like test-pmd, all works fine :)

I will take a deep look at in the kernel side, to find out why this happens.

Thanks,
Michael

Thanks to Sergio, we found a most likely cause for this. This patch to Linux kernel by Alex Williamson of Red Hat:

https://lkml.org/lkml/2013/12/12/421

it seems, however, that it has been merged into 3.14. Your kernel, by your own admission, is 3.6. Are you sure this is the right kernel version? Because my own machine has Fedora 18 with a 3.11 kernel, and it (correctly) does not display this behavior. So unless Fedora 20 backported those changes to kernel 3.6, this shouldn't happen on your set up. (but it doesn't really matter, just FYI - the patch still should be fixed and resubmitted, just as we discussed)

Thanks,
Anatoly

Sorry, the kernel version is 3.16 :), just make a mistake :)

Hi Michael,

Few nitpicks :-) (wording of the log message I guess is up to Thomas, I won't comment on that)

Can we add RTE_LOG statement here, with an strerror(errno) like in other places? Fopen failed, we should at least know why :-)

Probably should use strncmp instead of strcmp.

I'm not even sure we need this "expected" bit at all. We don't get back the IOMMU type VFIO currently supports; rather, this code checks if VFIO's support for VFIO_TYPE1_IOMMU is enabled or not. So I would change the error message to something more descriptive, such as " required IOMMU type support not present in VFIO!\n", and get rid of the "expected".

Can we perhaps make one call per module instead of two? i.e. something like:

int vfio_ret, vfio_ type1_ret;
vfio_ret = rte_eal_check_module("vfio");
vfio_type1_ret = rte_eal_check_module("vfio_iommu_type1");

if (vfio_ret == -1 || vfio_type1_ret == -1)
    return -1;
else if (vfio_ret == 0 || vfio_type1_ret == 0) {
     ....
    return 0;
}

I don't think so, if we check module "vfio", but if given  module name
is "vfio_xx", it will also correct if use strncmp.

When vfio module is not loaded when kernel support vfio feature,
the routine still try to open the container to get file
description.

This action is not safe, and of cause got error messages:

EAL: Detected 40 lcore(s)
EAL:   unsupported IOMMU type!
EAL: VFIO support could not be initialized
EAL: Setting up memory...

This may make user confuse, this patch make it reasonable
and much more soomth to user.

v3 --> v2:
	1. Add error log in rte_eal_check_module()
	2. Some code clean up.

v2 --> v1:
	1. Move check_module() from rte_common.h to eal_private.h
	   and rename to rte_eal_check_module().
	   To make it linuxapp only.
	2. Some code clean up.

I don't think this RTE_LOG is necessary - we never RTE_LOG invalid parameters.

We can actually get away with checking just vfio_iommu_type1 (having it loaded implies that vfio is loaded as well).

Yes, you are right. That's the point, I will rework this.

When vfio module is not loaded when kernel support vfio feature,
the routine still try to open the container to get file
description.

This action is not safe, and of cause got error messages:

EAL: Detected 40 lcore(s)
EAL:   unsupported IOMMU type!
EAL: VFIO support could not be initialized
EAL: Setting up memory...

This may make user confuse, this patch make it reasonable
and much more soomth to user.

v4 --> v3:
	1. Remove RTE_LOG for params check
	2. Remove "vfio" module check as "vfio_iommu_type1"
	   loaded indecated "vfio" loaded

v3 --> v2:
        1. Add error log in rte_eal_check_module()
        2. Some code clean up.

v2 --> v1:
        1. Move check_module() from rte_common.h to eal_private.h
           and rename to rte_eal_check_module().
           To make it linuxapp only.
        2. Some code clean up.

Apologies for not bringing this up before, but do we really want the rte_eal_check_module inline in the header? I think it would be better to declare it in eal_private but move the definition into eal.c.

I'm not sure this message is meaningful. That ioctl call can either -1, 0 or 1. We already handle 1 separately; -1 means an error; 0 means IOMMU type 1 is not supported. The return value will *not* indicate which IOMMU types *are* currently supported - it will only indicate that the IOMMU type you requested is not supported. So there's really no point in indicating the return value in case of ret 0 - it is best to just mention that requested IOMMU type support is not enabled in VFIO.

No need, actually, I'm very appreciate that you can spend your time to
review my patch again and again. I really want to say thank you to you.

For rte_eal_check_module inline in the header, it really no need stay in
header, so ugly. I will make new version of it, and re-post.

The return value will *not* indicate which IOMMU types *are* currently supported - it will only indicate that the IOMMU type you requested is not supported. So there's really no point in indicating the return value in case of ret 0 - it is best to just mention that requested IOMMU type support is not enabled in VFIO.

Yes, you are right, I make a mistake.

Hi Michael

Sorry I missed this the last time. I don't think that is the case. If you do strncmp on sizeof(buffer), strncmp will always check 30 bytes. That way if you check vfio against vfio_xx, you'll get a mismatch. Of course, replacing fscanf with fgets would be better too, to make sure we never go over our buffer size when dealing with /proc/modules. 

Thanks,
Anatoly

Yes, you are right, strncmp() will check 30 bytes if use sizeof(buffer).

But any issue of strcmp() ? This rountin cares about exactly match. I
think no need to convert to strncmp() if it does have other issue.

> fscanf with fgets would be better too, to make sure we never go over our buffer size when dealing with /proc/modules. 

If we use fgets, we need additional efforts to get the modname,  for
potential overflow issue, we can limit counts of fscanf(). like below:

fscanf(fd, "%30s %*[^\n]", mod_name);

Michael

As  long as it doesn't cause easy buffer overruns, I'm fine with it :-)

I see it is already discussed in the other mail that we could limit the count to avoid overflow.
I don't understand why you don't apply it here.
There are already several existing modules that has 20+ length.

Yes, I have reply in this thread with below:
  fscanf(fd, "%30s %*[^\n]", mod_name);

> There are already several existing modules that has 20+ length. 

Yes, would you think 30 length is enough? Otherwise I need to increase
the length

Thanks,
Michael

* [dpdk-dev] [PATCH v5] VFIO: Avoid to enable vfio while the module not loaded

From: Michael Qiu @ 2014-12-10  2:22 UTC (permalink / raw)
  To: dev

When vfio module is not loaded when kernel support vfio feature,
the routine still try to open the container to get file
description.

This action is not safe, and of cause got error messages:

EAL: Detected 40 lcore(s)
EAL:   unsupported IOMMU type!
EAL: VFIO support could not be initialized
EAL: Setting up memory...

This may make user confuse, this patch make it reasonable
and much more soomth to user.

 v5 --> v4
	1. Move rte_eal_check_module() body to eal.c
	2. Clean up "unsupported IOMMU type" log

v4 --> v3:
	1. Remove RTE_LOG for params check
	2. Remove "vfio" module check as "vfio_iommu_type1"
	   loaded indecated "vfio" loaded

v3 --> v2:
        1. Add error log in rte_eal_check_module()
        2. Some code clean up.

v2 --> v1:
        1. Move check_module() from rte_common.h to eal_private.h
           and rename to rte_eal_check_module().
           To make it linuxapp only.
        2. Some code clean up.

Just curious - why inline?

As far as I know, in fscanf terms, %30s will result in at most 30 character string, i.e. 31 bytes (30 characters + null terminator). So it probably should be %29s.

Good catch, you are right.

  To: dev

When vfio module is not loaded when kernel support vfio feature,
the routine still try to open the container to get file
description.

This action is not safe, and of cause got error messages:

EAL: Detected 40 lcore(s)
EAL:   unsupported IOMMU type!
EAL: VFIO support could not be initialized
EAL: Setting up memory...

This may make user confuse, this patch make it reasonable
and much more soomth to user.

 v6 --> v5
	1. Change rte_eal_check_module() to normal
	   function instead of inline
	2. limit fscanf to get 29 charactors not include '\0'

Will you plan to merge this patch? If yes,   you plan to merge it into
1.8 or 2.0?

Thanks,

It won't be in 1.8 for 2 reasons:
- there is  a risk to break something in some environments, so need more tests
- you add a function protoype in eal common without bsd implementation

Note that rte_eal_check_module has no bsd counterpart.
It could be needed later.

Applied

Yep, apologies, it's my fault as it was my suggestion. I knew there was a linuxapp-only EAL header, for some reason I thought it's eal_private. Any suggestions on where to put this function? I don't think BSD needs this function. 

Thanks,
Anatoly

No, it's OK. I think it could be needed in bsd if a PMD
depends on a kernel driver or try to unload one.
