Commit Message

Cristian Marussi March 27, 2020, 2:34 p.m. UTC
Add core SCMI Notifications callbacks-registration support: allow users
to register their own callbacks against the desired events.
Whenever a registration request is issued against a still non existent
event, mark such request as pending for later processing, in order to
account for possible late initializations of SCMI Protocols associated
to loadable drivers.

V4 --> V5
- fix kernel-doc
- reviewed REVT_NOTIFY_ENABLE macro
- added matching barrier for late_init
V3 --> V4
- split registered_handlers hashtable on a per-protocol basis to reduce
  unneeded contention
- introduced pending_handlers table and related late_init worker to finalize
  handlers registration upon effective protocols' registrations
- introduced further safe accessors macros for registered_protocols
  and registered_events arrays
V2 --> V3
- refactored get/put event_handler
- removed generic non-handle-based API
V1 --> V2
- splitted out of V1 patch 04
- moved from IDR maps to real HashTables to store event_handlers
- added proper enable_events refcounting via __scmi_enable_evt()
  [was broken in V1 when using ALL_SRCIDs notification chains]
- reviewed hashtable cleanup strategy in scmi_notifications_exit()
- added scmi_register_event_notifier()/scmi_unregister_event_notifier()
  to include/linux/scmi_protocol.h as a candidate user API
  [no EXPORTs still]
- added notify_ops to handle during initialization as an additional
  internal API for scmi_drivers

  * this core its set of supported events using scmi_register_protocol_events():
  * all the needed descriptors are stored in the &struct registered_protocols and
  * &struct registered_events arrays.
+ *
+ * Kernel users interested in some specific event can register their callbacks
+ * providing the usual notifier_block descriptor, since this core implements
+ * events' delivery using the standard Kernel notification chains machinery.
+ *
+ * Given the number of possible events defined by SCMI and the extensibility
+ * of the SCMI Protocol itself, the underlying notification chains are created
+ * and destroyed dynamically on demand depending on the number of users
+ * effectively registered for an event, so that no support structures or chains
+ * are allocated until at least one user has registered a notifier_block for
+ * such event. Similarly, events' generation itself is enabled at the platform
+ * level only after at least one user has registered, and it is shutdown after
+ * the last user for that event has gone.
+ *
+ * All users provided callbacks and allocated notification-chains are stored in
+ * the @registered_events_handlers hashtable. Callbacks' registration requests
+ * for still to be registered events are instead kept in the dedicated common
+ * hashtable @pending_events_handlers.
+ *
+ * An event is identified univocally by the tuple (proto_id, evt_id, src_id)
+ * and is served by its own dedicated notification chain; information contained
+ * in such tuples is used, in a few different ways, to generate the needed
+ * hash-keys.
+ *
+ * Here proto_id and evt_id are simply the protocol_id and message_id numbers
+ * as described in the SCMI Protocol specification, while src_id represents an
+ * optional, protocol dependent, source identifier (like domain_id, perf_id
+ * or sensor_id and so forth).
