Following a GPU reset, we may leave the context in a poorly defined
state, and reloading from that context will leave the GPU flummoxed. For
secondary contexts, this will lead to that context being banned - but
currently it is also causing the default context to become banned,
leading to turmoil in the shared state.

This is a regression from

commit 6702cf16e0ba8b0129f5aa1b6609d4e9c70bc13b [v4.1]
Author: Ben Widawsky <benjamin.widawsky@intel.com>
Date:   Mon Mar 16 16:00:58 2015 +0000

    drm/i915: Initialize all contexts

which quietly introduced the removal of the MI_RESTORE_INHIBIT on the
default context.

v2: Mark the global default context as uninitialized on GPU reset so
that the context-local workarounds are reloaded upon re-enabling.

AFAICT the removal of MI_RESTORE_INHIBIT in that commit seemed
justified.  Ben explained that it was needed to fix a pagefault in the
default context under certain conditions.  I don't know the details of
the original change (Ben CC'ed), but it seems like this would be trading
one bug for another?

Other than that this opens the door again to subtle state leaks between
processes, as I learned recently while implementing L3 partitioning in
Mesa.  Mesa now changes the L3 configuration in ways that will break
assumptions from processes that use the default context (the DDX).  The
DDX assumes, for instance, that the URB size is set according to the
hardware defaults, but it doesn't actually program the URB size itself,
so in a way the DDX relies on MI_RESTORE_INHIBIT *not* to be set for the
default context for correct operation.  This commit breaks that
assumption and the kernel ABI.

Mesa has a workaround in place to reduce the likelihood of such leaks,
but the solution is far from ideal because it relies on userspace
cooperation and had a measurable impact in performance (because it
requires userspace to assume the worst-case scenario that the following
batch is going to be from a different context with MI_RESTORE_INHIBIT
set, so we have to restore the hardware default L3 configuration at the
end of every batch even if that's actually not the case), for that
reason we would like to drop the userspace workaround in the future at
least on v4.1 kernels and newer.

One more question below.

This hunk causes MI_RESTORE_INHIBIT to be set again for the default
context regardless of whether a reset happened or not, so it seems
unrelated to the rest of your change.  Maybe I'm understanding this
wrong but doesn't the !initialized check together with the hunk above
already guarantee that MI_RESTORE_INHIBIT will be set after GPU reset,
which is what you wanted to achieve?

A bug in a feature that never worked and isn't enabled?

Wrong the ABI is the other way around and has been for 10 years. Note
the kernel isn't also ensuring that the default context has the default
hardware values either. The "golden renderstate" also doesn't set all
defaults and is also a recent introduction.

It changes the ABI back to what it was....

Mesa has workarounds for leaks between hardware contexts, i.e. state
that is not stored in the context itself. Mesa also has to assume a
clean slate when setting up the context for the first time, and doesn't
use the default context itself.

This is the change to *restore* the kernel ABI. The flag in reset is to
force the WA LRI to be re-emitted (not for gen6 ofc) as they will not be
preserved.

Sounds like a change fully unrelated to fixing the bug on GPU reset.

The ABI change done in 6702cf16e0ba8b0129f5aa1b6609d4e9c70bc13b seemed
legitimate because it made the context state on switch more well-defined
than it used to be, IOW it was a backwards-compatible ABI change because
it couldn't possibly break userspace assumptions.  This change OTOH
breaks an assumption about the kernel ABI done by the DDX now.

No, the workaround involves restoring state which *is* part of the
hardware context, it just won't get saved and restored with this commit
because of the MI_RESTORE_INHIBIT flag when switching to the DDX'
default context.

Again you don't justify why changing the kernel ABI is required to fix
a GPU reset bug.

Well it seems folks like the new ABI, even if somewhat accidental. And
more isolation between clients can't hurt I think (well it does hurt perf
somewhat). So I guess we need a respun patch that just makes sure that we
restore the default context stuff after reset, probably by marking it as
unitialized? And then just the one the kernel has I guess?

I guess I dropped this one again, but now merged again since it fixes a
suspend/resume regression.
