Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 4.9 1/5] iwlwifi: pcie: limit memory read spin time

From: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg@...el.com>

[ Upstream commit 04516706bb99889986ddfa3a769ed50d2dc7ac13 ]

When we read device memory, we lock a spinlock, write the address we
want to read from the device and then spin in a loop reading the data
in 32-bit quantities from another register.

As the description makes clear, this is rather inefficient, incurring
a PCIe bus transaction for every read. In a typical device today, we
want to read 786k SMEM if it crashes, leading to 192k register reads.
Occasionally, we've seen the whole loop take over 20 seconds and then
triggering the soft lockup detector.

Clearly, it is unreasonable to spin here for such extended periods of
time.

To fix this, break the loop down into an outer and an inner loop, and
break out of the inner loop if more than half a second elapsed. To
avoid too much overhead, check for that only every 128 reads, though
there's no particular reason for that number. Then, unlock and relock
to obtain NIC access again, reprogram the start address and continue.

This will keep (interrupt) latencies on the CPU down to a reasonable
time.
