Re: mptspi init failure on Sparc SMP in Linux 3.0

Praveen,

Thank you for your response.

This is Sparc server and here is silo, not grub. So I do not know how well I tried your suggestions.

I tried:
root@fire:/boot# cat silo.conf
root=/dev/sda2
partition=1
default=LinuxOLD
read-only
timeout=100

image=/vmlinuz
        label=Linux
        initrd=/initrd.img
        append="pci=routeirq"

image=/vmlinuz.old
        label=LinuxOLD
        initrd=/initrd.img.old

and

root@fire:/boot# cat silo.conf
root=/dev/sda2
partition=1
default=LinuxOLD
read-only
timeout=100

image=/vmlinuz
        label=Linux
        initrd=/initrd.img
        append="irqpoll"

image=/vmlinuz.old
        label=LinuxOLD
        initrd=/initrd.img.old


These changes have not helped. I have the same error messages.

Unfortunately I can't collect the kernel messages with smp linux-image. I set in rsyslog.conf

kern.debug                      -/var/log/kern.debug

I had already set

*.=debug;\
        auth,authpriv.none;\
        news.none;mail.none     -/var/log/debug

but there is no log messages from broken boot. I can collect messages only from putty.

Mariusz

PS. Sorry for my English. :)

[   68.319518] mptbase: ioc0: WARNING - Issuing Reset from

[   69.175505] mptbase: ioc0: Attempting Retry Config request type

As Nagalakshmi pointed out, the series of reset happens because the config request for reading the page header fails. This is the first time the message queues are used when the card is coming up, therefore taking into account, that the same driver and same card works perfectly on non-smp linux kernel,  I am guessing that the config request would have been sent successfully and the firmware would have processed the request and raised an interrupt through the IRQ line assigned for this card, it is somehow not routed to our driver's interrupt service routine. Therefore could you try the following to check if any of it works?

1. add pci=routeirq to the kernel boot parameters in /boot/grub/menu.lst
Eg) 	
title          Debian XYZ
root           (hdX,X)
kernel         /boot/vmlinuz-XYZ root=XX ro quiet splash pci=routeirq
initrd         /boot/initrd.img-XYZ

2. add irqpoll to the kernel boot parameters in /boot/grub/menu.lst
Eg) 	
title          Debian XYZ
root           (hdX,X)
kernel         /boot/vmlinuz-XYZ root=XX ro quiet splash irqpoll
initrd         /boot/initrd.img-XYZ

Praveen
