Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 5.8 18/72] soc: qcom: rpmh-rsc: Don't use ktime for timeout in write_tcs_reg_sync()

From: Douglas Anderson <>

[ Upstream commit be24c6a71ecfbd9436ea1f496eb518a53e06368c ]

The write_tcs_reg_sync() may be called after timekeeping is suspended
so it's not OK to use ktime.  The readl_poll_timeout_atomic() macro
implicitly uses ktime.  This was causing a warning at suspend time.

Change to just loop 1000000 times with a delay of 1 us between loops.
This may give a timeout of more than 1 second but never less and is
safe even if timekeeping is suspended.

NOTE: I don't have any actual evidence that we need to loop here.
It's possibly that all we really need to do is just read the value
back to ensure that the pipes are cleaned and the looping/comparing is
totally not needed.  I never saw the loop being needed in my tests.
However, the loop shouldn't hurt.
