[PATCH v5 0/4] Broadcom SBA RAID support

From: Anup Patel
Date: Thu Feb 16 2017 - 01:50:28 EST

The Broadcom SBA RAID is a stream-based device which provides
RAID5/6 offload.

It requires a SoC specific ring manager (such as Broadcom FlexRM
ring manager) to provide ring-based programming interface. Due to
this, the Broadcom SBA RAID driver (mailbox client) implements
DMA device having one DMA channel using a set of mailbox channels
provided by Broadcom SoC specific ring manager driver (mailbox

The Broadcom SBA RAID hardware requires PQ disk position instead
of PQ disk coefficient. To address this, we have added raid_gflog
table which will help driver to convert PQ disk coefficient to PQ
disk position.

This patchset is based on Linux-4.10-rc2 and depends on patchset
"[PATCH v4 0/2] Broadcom FlexRM ring manager support"

It is also available at sba-raid-v5 branch of

Changes since v4:
- Removed dependency of bcm-sba-raid driver on kconfig opton
- Select kconfig options ASYNC_TX_DISABLE_XOR_VAL_DMA and
ASYNC_TX_DISABLE_PQ_VAL_DMA for bcm-sba-raid driver
- Implemented device_prep_dma_interrupt() using dummy 8-byte
copy operation so that the dma_async_device_register() can
set DMA_ASYNC_TX capability for the DMA device provided
by bcm-sba-raid driver

Changes since v3:
- Replaced SBA_ENC() with sba_cmd_enc() inline function
- Use list_first_entry_or_null() wherever possible
- Remove unwanted brances around loops wherever possible
- Use lockdep_assert_held() where required

Changes since v2:
- Droped patch to handle DMA devices having support for fewer
PQ coefficients in Linux Async Tx
- Added work-around in bcm-sba-raid driver to handle unsupported
PQ coefficients using multiple SBA requests

Changes since v1:
- Droped patch to add mbox_channel_device() API
- Used GENMASK and BIT macros wherever possible in bcm-sba-raid driver
- Replaced C_MDATA macros with static inline functions in
bcm-sba-raid driver
- Removed sba_alloc_chan_resources() callback in bcm-sba-raid driver
- Used dev_err() instead of dev_info() wherever applicable
- Removed call to sba_issue_pending() from sba_tx_submit() in
bcm-sba-raid driver
- Implemented SBA request chaning for handling (len > sba->req_size)
in bcm-sba-raid driver
- Implemented device_terminate_all() callback in bcm-sba-raid driver
