SPDK blobfs encountered a crash around rte_ring dequeues in ppc64.
It uses a single consumer and multiple producers for a rte_ring.
The problem was a load-load reorder in rte_ring_sc_dequeue_bulk().

The reordered loads happened on r->prod.tail in
__rte_ring_move_cons_head() (rte_ring_generic.h) and ring[idx] in
DEQUEUE_PTRS() (rte_ring.h). They have a load-load control
dependency, but the code does not satisfy it. Note that they are
not reordered if __rte_ring_move_cons_head() with is_sc != 1 because
cmpset invokes a read barrier.

The paired stores on these loads are in ENQUEUE_PTRS() and
update_tail(). Simplified code around the reorder is the following.

Consumer             Producer
load idx[ring]
                     store idx[ring]
                     store r->prod.tail
load r->prod.tail

In this case, the consumer loads old idx[ring] and confirms the load
is valid with the new r->prod.tail.

I added a read barrier in the case where __IS_SC is passed to
__rte_ring_move_cons_head(). I also fixed __rte_ring_move_prod_head()
to avoid similar problems with a single producer.

Adding rte_smp_rmb() cause performance regression on non x86 platforms.
Having said that, load-load barrier can be expressed very  well with C11 memory
model. I guess ppc64 supports C11 memory model. If so,
Could you try CONFIG_RTE_RING_USE_C11_MEM_MODEL=y for ppc64 and check
original issue?

Yes, the performance regression happens on non-x86 with single
producer/consumer.
The average latency of an enqueue was increased from 21 nsec to 24 nsec in my
simple experiment. But, I think it is worth it.


I also tested C11 rte_ring, however, it caused the same race condition in ppc64.
I tried to fix the C11 problem as well, but I also found the C11
rte_ring had other potential
incorrect choices of memory orders, which caused another race
condition in ppc64.

For example,
__ATOMIC_ACQUIRE is passed to __atomic_compare_exchange_n(), but
I am not sure why the load-acquire is used for the compare exchange.
Also in update_tail, the pause can be called before the data copy because
of ht->tail load without atomic_load_n.

The memory order is simply difficult, so it might take a bit longer
time to check
if the code is correct. I think I can fix the C11 rte_ring as another patch.

That varies to machine to machine. What is the burst size etc.

Does it happens on all ppc64 machines? Or on a specific machine?
Is following tests are passing on your system without the patch?
test/test/test_ring_perf.c
test/test/test_ring.c

It correct as per C11 acquire and release semantics.

There is rte_smp_rmb() just before reading r->prod.tail in 
        ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
_rte_ring_move_cons_head(). Would that not suffice the requirement?

Can you check adding compiler barrier and see is compiler is reordering
the stuff?

DPDK's ring implementation is based freebsd's ring implementation, I
don't see need for such barrier

https://github.com/freebsd/freebsd/blob/master/sys/sys/buf_ring.h

If it is something specific to ppc64 or a specific ppc64 machine, we 
could add a compile option as it is arch specific to avoid performance
impact on other architectures.

No reply after more than 2 years.
Unfortunately it is probably outdated now.
Classified as "Changes Requested".

Looking at the code, I think this patch in fact fixes a bug. Appreciate rebasing this patch.

The problem is already fixed in '__rte_ring_move_cons_head' but needs to be fixed in '__rte_ring_move_prod_head'.
This problem is fixed for C11 version due to acquire load of cons.tail and prod.tail.

First, for consumer in dequeue:
the reason for that adding a rmb in move_cons_head of “generic” is based on this patch:
http://patches.dpdk.org/project/dpdk/patch/1552409933-45684-2-git-send-email-gavin.hu@arm.com/

Slot                        Consumer                                                           Producer
1                     dequeue elements
2                                                                                                  update prod_tail
3                   load new prod_tail
4                   check room is enough(n < entries)

Dequeue elements maybe before load updated prod_tail, so consumer can load incorrect elements value.
For dequeue multiple consumers case, ‘rte_atomic32_cmpset’ with acquire and release order can prevent
dequeue before load prod_tail, no extra rmb is needed.

Second, for single producer in enqueue:

Slot                        Producer                                                             Consumer
1                     enqueue elements(not commited)
2                                                                                                  update consumer_tail
3                   load new consumer_tail
4                   check room is enough(n < entries)
5                   enqueued elements is committed

Though enqueue elements maybe reorder before load consumer_tail, these elements will not be committed until
‘check’ has finished. So from load to write control dependency is reliable and rmb is not needed here.
[1] https://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~pes20/ppc-supplemental/test7.pdf (page:15)

As a result, it is unnecessary to add a rmb for enqueue single producer due to control dependency. And this patch can
be closed.
