According to "DRM kernel-internal display mode structure" in
include/drm/drm_modes.h the current driver is trying to include
sync timings along with front porch value while checking and
computing drq set bits in non-burst mode.

mode->hsync_end - mode->hdisplay => horizontal front porch + sync

With adding additional sync timings, the dsi controller leads to
wrong drq set bits for "bananapi,s070wv20-ct16" panel which indeed
trigger panel flip_done timed out as:

But according to Allwinner A33, A64 BSP code [1] [3] the TCON DRQ for
non-burst DSI mode can be computed based on "horizontal front porch"
value only (no sync timings included).

Detailed evidence for drq set bits based on A33 BSP [1] [2]

=> panel->lcd_ht - panel->lcd_x - panel->lcd_hbp - 20
=> (tt->hor_front_porch + lcdp->panel_info.lcd_hbp +
lcdp->panel_info.lcd_x) - panel->lcd_x - panel->lcd_hbp - 20
=> tt->hor_front_porch - 20

Which is mode->hsync_start - mode->hdisplay as per
"DRM kernel-internal display mode structure" in include/drm/drm_modes.h

So, This patch update the DRQ set bits to use front porch value.

The thing is, while your explanation on the DRM side is sound,
Allwinner has been using the hbp field of their panel description to
store what DRM calls the backporch and the sync period.

And nowhere in that commit log you are describing whether it's still
an issue or not, and if it's not anymore how you did test that it's
not the case anymore.

Exactly, hbp = backporch + sync
https://github.com/BPI-SINOVOIP/BPI-M2M-bsp/blob/master/linux-sunxi/drivers/video/sunxi/disp/de/disp_lcd.c#L2046

And the above computation is rely on that as well. If you can see the
final out of the above computation you can get the front porch value
(w/o sync )

No, I have explained 1st and 2nd para about
00. There is any additional sync timings in the drq set bits
01: issue occur due to adding addition sync timings with longs on the
panel, by referring
03: and later paragraphs proved that there is no sync timings used in BSP

Am I missing anythings?

As I was saying, you are explaining it well for DRM, but in order for
your last formula (the one coming from the BSP) to make sense, you
have to explain that the horizontal back porch for Allwinner contains
the sync period, otherwise your expansion of lcd_ht doesn't make
sense.

I'm sorry, but I'm not quite sure what you mean here :/

I'm not sure why we need to take care of back porch since the formula
clearly evaluating a result as front porch, without sync timing (as
current code included this sync), I keep the hbp and trying to
substitute the lcd_ht value so the end result would cancel hbp.

I have used this front porch formula from BSP
tt->hor_front_porch= lcdp->panel_info.lcd_ht-lcdp->panel_info.lcd_hbp
- lcdp->panel_info.lcd_x;
https://github.com/BPI-SINOVOIP/BPI-M2M-bsp/blob/master/linux-sunxi/drivers/video/sunxi/disp/de/disp_lcd.c#L2047

and evaluated drq set-bit formula

tt->hor_front_porch= lcdp->panel_info.lcd_ht-lcdp->panel_info.lcd_hbp
- lcdp->panel_info.lcd_x;
lcdp->panel_info.lcd_ht = tt->hor_front_porch +
lcdp->panel_info.lcd_hbp +  lcdp->panel_info.lcd_x

=> panel->lcd_ht - panel->lcd_x - panel->lcd_hbp
(substitute the lcd_ht)
=> tt->hor_front_porch + lcdp->panel_info.lcd_hbp +
lcdp->panel_info.lcd_x - panel->lcd_x - panel->lcd_hbp
(here hbp and lcd_x would cancel, and the result is front porch)
=> tt->hor_front_porch

I'm just mentioning how I fragmented/grouped the commit message.

Because it changes how lcd_ht expands. In the DRM case, it will expand
to the displayed area, the front porch, the sync period and the back
porch.

In your case, you expand it to the displayed area, the front porch and
the back porch, precisely because in Allwinner's case, the back porch
has the sync period.

I understand the point, but technically it matter about the final
computation result.  May be we can even manage the same computation in
back porch, but I'm not sure. Since the final output doesn't involve
any sync length, why we can include that ie what I'm not sure. with
inclusion of sync timings we have wrong tcon drq set bit, it's been
verified.

We have the following formula:
lcd_ht - lcd_x - lcd_hbp - 20

Using the concepts as they are defined in DRM, this expands to:
x + hbp + hsync + hfp - x - hbp - 20

which ends up as
hsync + hfp - 20

Now, the same formula with how Allwinner defines it:
x + hbp + hfp - x - hbp - 20

which ends up as
hfp - 20

So it definitely matters, and the sync period is used in one but not
the other.

Here is diff between allwinner hbp vs hbp in DRM.

Say hbp in DRM can call it hbackporch, so

=> x + hbackporch + hsync + hfp - -x - hbp - 20

(and here we need to substitute hbp formula from allwinner since the
actual equation would coming from there
https://github.com/BPI-SINOVOIP/BPI-M2M-bsp/blob/master/linux-sunxi/drivers/video/sunxi/disp/de/disp_lcd.c#L2046)

=> x + hbackporch + hsync + hfp - x - (hbackporch + hsync) - 20
=> x + hbackporch + hsync + hfp - x - hbackporch - hsync - 20
=> hfp - 20

This is true, and same I have explained in commit log. and hbp here is
as per allwinner so we endedup hfp. which is satisfied by above DRM
equation.

With the above explanation there is no sync included.

And this is precisely what needs to be said, with an explanation about
where that hor_back_porch is being used later on, and what impact it
could have.

Yes, it an equation and the mathematical equations can be substitute
to variety kind I did agree with that, whether you can use hbackporch
or not or use another-way the final resulting value is equivalent to
the value of front porch. In that case we can solve based on what I
explained above. If you still dought me, please run BSP and check the
resulting value on this check, you can get the front porch value.

Maxime is not doubting you. He is saying that you need to include the
detailed explanation in your commit log, and not just reference pieces
of code. This is separate from the requirement of having a correct patch.

Providing just a mathematical formula isn't enough either, because it
is not clear to the average reader which term expanded into what. A
better way to do is to first provide the definition of each term in
a form easy to understand, such as the following:

    List of LCD parameters as defined by Allwinner, explained using terms
    from the DRM subsystem:

      - lcd_ht: horizontal total size
      - lcd_x: horizontal display size
      - lcd_hbp: horizontal sync + backporch

Or better yet, copy the diagram from drm_modes.h and add lcd_* to the bottom
to show the differences.

    <-------------------------------- lcd_[hv]t ----------------------------->
    <----- lcd_[xy] -------->                  <-------- lcd_[hv]bp --------->

             Active                 Front           Sync           Back
             Region                 Porch                          Porch
    <-----------------------><----------------><-------------><-------------->
      //////////////////////|
     ////////////////////// |
    //////////////////////  |..................               ................
                                               _______________
    <----- [hv]display ----->
    <------------- [hv]sync_start ------------>
    <--------------------- [hv]sync_end --------------------->
    <-------------------------------- [hv]total ----------------------------->


Then you can go on explain what effect the difference in the definition of
"backporch" has on the piece of code you are fixing:

    The DSI driver misinterpreted the hbp term from the BSP code to refer
    only to the backporch, when in fact it was backporch + sync. Thus the
    driver incorrectly used the horizontal front porch plus sync in its
    calculation of the DRQ value, when it should not have included the sync
    period.

The above explains how you came to create your fix. At this point you don't
even need to include the mathematical formulas anymore.

The why you already explained, the flip_done time outs. The result you haven't
explained, but it can be as simple as:

    With the terms fixed, the panel displays correctly without any timeouts.

Hope this explains clearly what is needed in your commit log, and how to make
it easier to understand for other, especially for people either not familiar
with display internals, and/or Allwinner specifics.

Not sure whether you see my commit log on this version or not. Each
one has it's own way of providing the details and explanation and at
the end people in ML should understand it. I'm not proving a simple
formula here (like I did it in initial version) instead I'm giving all
the respective information along with the bug log, and the bsp links
where it comes from etc. This is easier way for everyone to
understand.

Just a bit to explain what I've mentioned in the log.

Paragraph 1:

"
According to "DRM kernel-internal display mode structure" in
include/drm/drm_modes.h the current driver is trying to include
sync timings along with front porch value while checking and
computing drq set bits in non-burst mode.

mode->hsync_end - mode->hdisplay => horizontal front porch + sync
"

This paragraph explains what the existing code is using according to
DRM, which indeed help new users to understand by providing
include/drm/drm_modes.h file.

Paragraph 2:

"
With adding additional sync timings, the dsi controller leads to
wrong drq set bits for "bananapi,s070wv20-ct16" panel which indeed
trigger panel flip_done timed out as:
"

This paragraph explains what is the relevant issue with existing change.

Paragraph 3:

BUG or WARNING log

Paragraph 4:

"
But according to Allwinner A33, A64 BSP code [1] [3] the TCON DRQ for
non-burst DSI mode can be computed based on "horizontal front porch"
value only (no sync timings included).
"

This paragraph explains what is BSP is using compared with mainline.

Paragraph 5:

"
Detailed evidence for drq set bits based on A33 BSP [1] [2]

=> panel->lcd_ht - panel->lcd_x - panel->lcd_hbp - 20
=> (tt->hor_front_porch + lcdp->panel_info.lcd_hbp +
lcdp->panel_info.lcd_x) - panel->lcd_x - panel->lcd_hbp - 20
=> tt->hor_front_porch - 20
"

This paragraph explains the detailed steps of equation evaluation by
providing BSP links.

Paragraph 6:

"
Which is mode->hsync_start - mode->hdisplay as per
"DRM kernel-internal display mode structure" in include/drm/drm_modes.h
"

This paragraph give fix details in according to Linux DRM.

So, all the explanation which I'm trying to provide here will help to
understand, what is the issue with existing code and BUG log, how it
handle in BSP, with justification of equations and links where it
refers. Please note that I'm providing bug log and before that I've
mentioned this timeout because of additional sync. why is the timeout
with additional sync time, which I'm unaware since we don't have
associated datasheets for this but we have working BSP's to prove
that.

Frankly, I still didn't understand what I missed here to explain the
issue. request for help if you see any issues on this format or
information.

This at the beginning makes no sense. It would be better placed with

You should lead with these two. These explain "why".

This actually makes it harder to read. For example it takes a couple passes
to realize lcd_ht expands to the stuff in the parenthesis. All the while I
still have no idea what all these variables mean or where they came from.
As I said, please don't ask users to open links and dig through code.

You should provide a simple explanation about what went wrong. As I
mentioned, you could have simply stated that when the driver was
reimplemented, the DRQ formula (which you can provide in its original
form) was incorrectly expanded because Allwinner's definition of "hbp"
is actually "hbp + sync" in DRM terms. That is actually the root cause,
which I believe is what Maxime wants detailed in the commit log.
This immediately points out what went wrong and how it went wrong,
without jumping through hoops.

Again the diagram helps immensely. (Well, maybe not for screen readers.)
It also directly shows why you replaced hsync_end with hsync_start.

Yes, and first you need to understand the formula you gave, which I
already mentioned is a bit hard.

On the side, going through the code and understanding it actually is quite
hard as I already did it a couple times before and it was really taxing.

The one thing you missed, and that Maxime requested, was how hbp, and
the misinterpretation of it plays into all of this. In fact the different
definitions of terms between DRM and Allwinner code / FEX files is what
led to all this. The rest is, well, somewhat hard to read. I already
shared my way of explaining everything above.

The main reasons I have included this information and the BSP links
are for future reference, to know the real proofs if anyone would want
to. and even the timeout log. My idea of formula evaluation here just
like what you refer in the diagram in previous mail. I thought
mathematical equations are much easier to understand and provable.

True, this indeed has different and direct understanding of what went
wrong. thanks for this.

Unfortunately the plain-text formatting sometimes doesn't help. Simple
text descriptions work better in most cases, diffs in others. You can
still include the formula as a reference, but it is better to explain
it outright in simple sentences, rather than providing the formula and
guiding the reader through it.
