Adds files and directories to debugfs for controlling and reading frame
CRCs, per CRTC:

dri/0/crtc-0/crc
dri/0/crtc-0/crc/control
dri/0/crtc-0/crc/data

Drivers can implement the set_crc_source callback() in drm_crtc_funcs to
start and stop generating frame CRCs and can add entries to the output
by calling drm_crtc_add_crc_entry.

v2:
    - Lots of good fixes suggested by Thierry.
    - Added documentation.
    - Changed the debugfs layout.
    - Moved to allocate the entries circular queue once when frame
      generation gets enabled for the first time.
v3:
    - Use the control file just to select the source, and start and stop
      capture when the data file is opened and closed, respectively.
    - Make variable the number of CRC values per entry, per source.
    - Allocate entries queue each time we start capturing as now there
      isn't a fixed number of CRC values per entry.
    - Store the frame counter in the data file as a 8-digit hex number.
    - For sources that cannot provide useful frame numbers, place
      XXXXXXXX in the frame field.

v4:
    - Build only if CONFIG_DEBUG_FS is enabled.
    - Use memdup_user_nul.
    - Consolidate calculation of the size of an entry in a helper.
    - Add 0x prefix to hex numbers in the data file.
    - Remove unnecessary snprintf and strlen usage in read callback.

v5:
    - Made the crcs array in drm_crtc_crc_entry fixed-size
    - Lots of other smaller improvements suggested by Emil Velikov

Hi Tomeu,

A couple of small nitpicks and a rather nasty looking bug, related to
your earlier question.

On 7 September 2016 at 11:27, Tomeu Vizoso <tomeu.vizoso@collabora.com> wrote:

Considering the bug below, I'm considering if there's a case were we
don't want to explicitly set the terminating byte ?

NULL-terminated what the things that was missing, explaining the
maths. Yet note the code sort of contradicts it.

TL;DR: above we conditionally NULL terminate the data, yet (below) we
feed garbage (always) instead of \0 byte.

Here buf is filled with garbage...

And here we copy the whole thing incl. the 'should be \0 but is
actually garbage' byte.

This doesn't look good :-\

Minor: We're missing teardown in the error path.

Minor: The function is internal only and used only when
defined(CONFIG_DEBUG_FS). Thus it should stay in
drivers/gpu/drm/foo.h.

Rule of thumb: include/drm defines the API used by the drivers, while
drivers/gpu/drm/foo_internal.h the internal API between the core DRM
modules.

As discussed offline, sprintf does terminate the string for us, so I
think this is fine.

Isn't drm_debugfs_cleanup taking care of it?

Good one.

Maybe ? It goes through the debugfs_list and pulls down individual
files. Yet most/all of drm users of debugfs_create_dir explicitly
cleanup after themselves via debugfs_remove_recursive() so I'd play
along.

+ * DOC: CRC ABI
+ *
+ * DRM device drivers can provide to userspace CRC information of each frame as
+ * it reached a given hardware component (a "source").
+ *
+ * Userspace can control generation of CRCs in a given CRTC by writing to the
+ * file dri/0/crtc-N/crc/control in debugfs, with N being the index of the CRTC.
+ * Accepted values are source names (which are driver-specific) and the "auto"
+ * keyword, which will let the driver select a default source of frame CRCs
+ * for this CRTC.
+ *
+ * Once frame CRC generation is enabled, userspace can capture them by reading
+ * the dri/0/crtc-N/crc/data file. Each line in that file contains the frame
+ * number in the first field and then a number of unsigned integer fields
+ * containing the CRC data. Fields are separated by a single space and the number
+ * of CRC fields is source-specific.
+ *
+ * Note that though in some cases the CRC is computed in a specified way and on
+ * the frame contents as supplied by userspace (eDP 1.3), in general the CRC
+ * computation is performed in an unspecified way and on frame contents that have
+ * been already processed in also an unspecified way and thus userspace cannot
+ * rely on being able to generate matching CRC values for the frame contents that
+ * it submits. In this general case, the maximum userspace can do is to compare
