Subject: [PATCH 4/4] scsi:stex.c Add S3/S4 support
Add S3/S4 support, add .suspend and .resume function in pci_driver.
Pegasus need 30~40 seconds to boot up. We don't want to OS wait
in .resume function. Create a thread to handle device boot up.
+static int stex_resume(struct pci_dev *pdev)
+ struct st_hba *hba = pci_get_drvdata(pdev);
+ struct hba_handshake_workstruct *hswork;
+ int sts;
+ hba->mu_status = MU_STATE_STARTING;
+ hswork = kzalloc(sizeof(struct hba_handshake_workstruct), GFP_KERNEL);
The system is coming back from sleep. You cannot swap or page out
as disks may still be asleep. GFP_KERNEL is automatically changed
to GFP_NOIO. It would be nice to outright use GFP_NOIO.
+ INIT_WORK(&hswork->handshake_work, resume_handshake);
Memory allocations can fail.
I suggest you allocate the memory in suspend(). There you can just
return -ENOMEM in the error case.
