For historical reason, the function drm_wait_vblank_ioctl always return
-EINVAL if something gets wrong. This scenario limits the flexibility
for the userspace make detailed verification of the problem and take
some action. In particular, the validation of “if (!dev->irq_enabled)”
in the drm_wait_vblank_ioctl is responsible for checking if the driver
support vblank or not. If the driver does not support VBlank, the
function drm_wait_vblank_ioctl returns EINVAL which does not represent
the real issue; this patch changes this behavior by return EOPNOTSUPP.
Additionally, some operations are unsupported by this function, and
returns EINVAL; this patch also changes the return value to EOPNOTSUPP
in this case. Lastly, the function drm_wait_vblank_ioctl is invoked by
libdrm, which is used by many compositors; because of this, it is
important to check if this change breaks any compositor. In this sense,
the following projects were examined:

* Drm-hwcomposer
* Kwin
* Sway
* Wlroots
* Wayland-core
* Weston
* Xorg (67 different drivers)

For each repository the verification happened in three steps:

* Update the main branch
* Look for any occurrence "drmWaitVBlank" with the command:
  git grep -n "drmWaitVBlank"
* Look in the git history of the project with the command:
  git log -SdrmWaitVBlank

Finally, none of the above projects validate the use of EINVAL which
make safe, at least for these projects, to change the return values.

Change since V3:
 - Return EINVAL for _DRM_VBLANK_SIGNAL (Daniel)

Change since V2:
 Daniel Vetter and Chris Wilson
 - Replace ENOTTY by EOPNOTSUPP
 - Return EINVAL if the parameters are wrong

Apologies for the confusion on the last time around. btw if someone tells
you "r-b (or a-b) with these changes", then just apply the r-b/a-b tag
next time around. Otherwise people will re-review the same thing over and
over again.

btw when resending patches it's good practice to add anyone who commented
on it (or who commented on the igt test for the same patch and other way
round) onto the explicit Cc: list of the patch. That way it's easier for
them to follow the patch evolution and do a quick r-b once they're happy.

If you don't do that then much bigger chances your patch gets ignored.

Thanks for these valuable tips.
Do you think that is a good idea to resend this patch CC's everybody? Or
is it ok if I just apply it?

Hm I thought I answered that on irc ... but just today I realized that
we missed 2 ioctls. There's also drm_crtc_get_sequence_ioctl and
drm_crtc_queue_sequence_ioctl which have the same dev->irq_enabled
check and I think should be treated the same.

Can you pls resend with those addressed too? Then you can also resend
with the cc's all added.

Hi,

I reexamined all the composers described in the commit message (latest
versions) to check if any project use and validate the return value
from  drm_crtc_get_sequence_ioctl and drm_crtc_queue_sequence_ioctl. I
noticed that mesa and xserver use them. FWIU replace EINVAL by
EOPNOTSUPP is harmless for mesa project, however it is not the same
for xserver.

Take a look at line 189 and 238 of hw/xfree86/drivers/modesetting/vblank.c

* https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/xorg/xserver/blob/master/hw/xfree86/drivers/modesetting/vblank.c#L238
* https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/xorg/xserver/blob/master/hw/xfree86/drivers/modesetting/vblank.c#L189

A little bit below the above lines, you can see a validation like that:

  if (ret != -1 || (errno != ENOTTY && errno != EINVAL))

In other words, if we change the EINVAL by EOPNOTSUPP
drm_crtc_[get|queue]_sequence_ioctl we could break xserver. I noticed
that Keith Packard introduced these ioctls to the kernel and also to
the xserver, I will prepare a new version and CC Keith. Should I do
another thing to notify xserver developers?

Thanks

If you want cc: xorg-devel or so, but I think they all moved to gitlab and
the m-l is pretty dead. Cc'ing Keith should be enough.

I looked at the code and I think we're fine. Better than fine actually,
because if dev->irq_enabled == false then we really shouldn't use vblank
ioctl, no matter whether the new or old version.

So for drivers without vblank support, all that will happen is that we
leave ->has_queue_sequence as false and then fail a bit later on with the
legacy ioctl. Should be all harmless.

Note that the idea behind filtering out EINVAL is that if you do a
QueueSequence on a crtc that's currently off, then it'll fail with EINVAL.
But the ioctl still works, hence why we want to accept that. Setting
has_queue_sequence = TRUE for the case where there's actually no vblank
might trigger a bug somewhere later on.
