Helen Koike March 14, 2019, 12:20 a.m.
In the case of a normal sync update, the preparation of framebuffers (be
it calling drm_atomic_helper_prepare_planes() or doing setups with
drm_framebuffer_get()) are performed in the new_state and the respective
cleanups are performed in the old_state.

In the case of async updates, the preparation is also done in the
new_state but the cleanups are done in the new_state (because updates
are performed in place, i.e. in the current state).

The current code blocks async udpates when the fb is changed, turning
async updates into sync updates, slowing down cursor updates and
introducing regressions in igt tests with errors of type:

"CRITICAL: completed 97 cursor updated in a period of 30 flips, we
expect to complete approximately 15360 updates, with the threshold set
at 7680"

Fb changes in async updates were prevented to avoid the following scenario:

- Async update, oldfb = NULL, newfb = fb1, prepare fb1, cleanup fb1
- Async update, oldfb = fb1, newfb = fb2, prepare fb2, cleanup fb2
- Non-async commit, oldfb = fb2, newfb = fb1, prepare fb1, cleanup fb2 (wrong)
Where we have a single call to prepare fb2 but double cleanup call to fb2.

To solve the above problems, instead of blocking async fb changes, we
place the old framebuffer in the new_state object, so when the code
performs cleanups in the new_state it will cleanup the old_fb and we
will have the following scenario instead:

- Async update, oldfb = NULL, newfb = fb1, prepare fb1, no cleanup
- Async update, oldfb = fb1, newfb = fb2, prepare fb2, cleanup fb1
- Non-async commit, oldfb = fb2, newfb = fb1, prepare fb1, cleanup fb2

Where calls to prepare/cleanup are balanced.

Hello,

I added a TODO in drm_atomic_helper_async_commit() regarding doing a
full state swap(), Boris and Nicholas, let me know if this is ok and if
I can keep your Reviewed-by tags)

As mentioned in the cover letter, I tested in almost all platforms with
igt plane_cursor_legacy and kms_cursor_legacy and I didn't see any
regressions. But I couldn't test on MSM and AMD because I don't have
the hardware I would appreciate if anyone could help me testing those.

Thanks!
Helen

I'm not convinced this should be cc: stable, seems more in the improvement
category than a bug fix.

Perhaps add "current" before plane state and then after add "(&drm_plane.state)"
so it's more clear what you're referring to here?

I'd change this bit to:

        * This is required since cleanup for async commits is performed on
        * the new state, rather than old state like for traditional commits.
        * Since we want to give up the reference on the current (old) fb instead
        * of our brand new one, swap them in the driver during the async commit.

I'm cc'ing to stable because the commit mentioned below inserted a
regression regarding the speed that cursors can be updated.
