Description Tormen 2015-06-20 22:11:50 UTC
For everyone with a MacbookPro12,1 : I am collecting useful information
here :
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/MacBook#Early_2015_13.22.2F15.22_-_Version_12.2Cx


Hi,

I am having the same model MacBookPro12,1:

CEST 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux


with the brmfmac patch provided in this thread:

	http://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-wireless/msg136093.html

because I had the exact same problem when downloading 6-7 files at the
same time (plus possible imap connections) - see the journalctl output
further down in this mail at [###1###].

I stress-tested with a multitude of concurrent downloads and everything
seems fine !
So thanks a lot for your patch !! :))


... Unfortunately there still is a problem !

... because today I had another system freeze and this time I was not
donwloading multiple files, but was only using a Google Doc document
(and possibly fetching mails per imap in background)... when suddendly
the whole system was frozen (including mouse and clock) at 10:27. And
the journalctl points to the brcmfmac module:

Comment 1 Arend van Spriel 2015-06-22 09:41:21 UTC
This issue is not probably not specific to the code. Is your access-point perhaps on channel 13? If so this might be a known issue that we fixed already. If I am not mistaken that will be in v4.2 kernel for which merge window just started.

If you can easily reproduce, you may compile brcmfmac with CONFIG_BRCMDBG set and load the driver with debug=0xd416. That will provide us with more logging to confirm the issue.
Comment 2 Tormen 2015-06-22 13:28:40 UTC
Hi,

Thanks for your fast reply !!

Unfortunately no Channel 13 networks around the spot where the crash happened (only Channels 1 - 11, here in Europe, France).

Reproducable: So far not. As I mentioned I wasn't really doing something specific (other than editing a Google Docs Text document).

So I activated CONFIG_BRCMDBG (and CONFIG_BRCM_TRACING), will load brcmfmac with 
debug=0xd416 and wait ... :)
... and come back once I have more info.

Thanks again,

Tormen
Comment 3 Tormen 2015-07-01 08:37:04 UTC
Hah. Got it ;)

Found a spot where the problem is reproducible !

uname -a
Linux banana 4.1.0-banana08-43-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Jun 29 11:53:46 UTC 2015 (5ee367d) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

The kernel used:
https://build.opensuse.org/package/show/home:tormen/kernel-desktop
Except that in my version, I have enabled:

CONFIG_BRCM_TRACING=y
CONFIG_BRCMDBG=y

And booted with kernel cmdline parameter : brcmfmac.debug=0xd416

Hi,

Can you see if the new kernel oops (seemingly coming from brmfmac (*)) can be fixed by you guys and/or to what it could be related ?

(*) Call Trace:

Is there anything else I can provide / do to help ?

Thanks a lot in advance for any hint.

Comment 8 Tormen 2015-07-03 07:51:03 UTC
Hi,

I seem out of luck: More and more crashes. So many and so often, that I can't work on wifi anymore.

A bit devastating especially in combination with this bug:
https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=100191
which prevents usage of the wired network after unplugging it once (something I need to do frequently on my notebook).

This message is consequential to the actual bug. The logs confirm my suspicion and you two patches that are in 4.2-rc1:

8afe0ec brcmfmac: update wiphy band information upon updating regulatory domain
58de92d brcmfmac: use static superset of channels for wiphy bands
Comment 11 Arend van Spriel 2015-07-07 18:11:40 UTC
The patches above apply cleanly to both 4.0.7 and 4.1.0 so they can be submitted to stable to resolve this issue.
Comment 12 Tormen 2015-07-07 18:26:48 UTC
Thanks a lot for your feedback !

I will (for now) add them to my Macbook patchset and get back to you.
Comment 13 Tormen 2015-07-16 23:14:36 UTC
Dear Arend,

I applied the patch and the crash did not happen again. But instead I am sometimes unable to connect to these networks (that before lead to the kernel freezes).

I did reboot with debug and did several connection attempts and at the end connected to my Android Hotspot network, which so far always worked fine.

I'll attach the debug output.

I really have the feeling that there must be another / a follow-up bug.

It would be really great if you could have a look and of course please let me know if you'd need anything else.

Thanks a lot in advance,

Tormen

journalctl -b0 # after restarting + trying and failing to connect

After reboot : Tried several times and failed every time to "Campus" WIFI network, then successfully connecting to Android Hotspot.
Comment 16 Tormen 2015-07-17 13:05:49 UTC
Hi,

it is really strange : 

1.) At the place in our office where I was able to constantly 100% reproduce the kernel freeze, I can now (with the 2 patches you mentioned) connect without problem.

2.) But where I had no problem to connect before (at my desk ;)) to the same network, but physically different location, so other access point) I cannot connect any more with my notebook. With my Android I have no problems in both locations.

:(

Can you make any sense out of that ? - Hopefully by looking through the attached kernel log ?

A similar freeze issue happens on my asus laptop (using ath3k dongle) and my Haswell NUC (using centrino wireless 2300) when trying ti use the K810 keyboard.
Comment 19 Arend van Spriel 2015-08-20 14:30:50 UTC
The MacBook devices may require different firmware. Will see if we can release that sometime soon.

Comment 22 Tormen 2015-08-24 11:17:42 UTC
For now I am using this firmware:

[   19.725528] brcmf_c_preinit_dcmds: Firmware version = wl0: Mar 13 2015 08:11:08 version 7.35.177.36 (r540934) FWID 01-e4dc15b

[   19.752167] brcmfmac 0000:03:00.0 wlp3s0: renamed from wlan0

As mentioned before (Comment #17, 2.) point): I am unable to connect to the two WLAN networks used at work: Campus + Local
I don't know why.
But this seems to indicate a(nother?) problem with the brcm firmware and/or brcmfmac driver,  
because with all other devices (e.g. with my Android Smartphone) or operating systems (e.g. for my colleagues under Windows) : No problem.

To hopefully allow you to understand what's going on:
Please find attached several journalctl outputs (done after several steps),
using the kernel 4.1.3.

Comment 27 Justin Dray 2015-08-24 13:08:45 UTC
By any chance are those networks you cannot see on 5GHz? The Arch wiki has a note about not being able to see any 5GHz networks, and I have the same experience on my macbook.

Complete system lockup while "rmmod brcmfmac" !


And I stumbled across another issue with brcmfmac driver:

While connected to WLAN here at home, I tried to rmmod brcmfmac.

The result : A complete system lockup :((

Comment 33 Adrian Bjugård 2015-08-26 10:36:40 UTC
I have just noticed that the MAC address for my card in Linux is set incorrectly. It is set to 00:90:4c:0d:f4:3e for everyone I know who has this card (3 people). That isn't the correct physical address for any one of us. But perhaps this should be a separate issue?
Comment 34 Tormen 2015-08-26 10:44:20 UTC
Thanks a lot for this info.

Ineed, for me too!

This is bad :(

... and might possibly explain my WLAN connection issues, if there is a MAC collision...  

How can I verify/assure if/that I have the newest firmware ?
Comment 35 Adrian Bjugård 2015-08-28 12:17:40 UTC
Basically, 14e4:43ba is currently unusable on Linux if there is another user nearby. I have two friends at university who both run Linux with the same wireless card as me, if any two of us are in the vicinity of each other, we cannot use wireless, even if we change to our correct MAC addresses first.
Comment 36 Tormen 2015-09-17 21:39:13 UTC
Hi Arend,

The malfunction of the brcmfmac driver is developping with the new kernel version 4.2.0 :

First the good news :
   + all patches I had to apply to 4.1 are included now :)
   + I was unable to make the computer crash by "rmmod brcmfmac" (so far)


The (really) bad news :

With the 4.2.0 kernel *ANY* wifi activity stops working after a couple of MINUTES.

The driver then gets in a sort of non-functional STASIS (where it looses it's connection and is unable to scan, connect, ...).

Where the only way I found to scan + connect is rmmod brcmfmac; modprobe brcmfmac :(((

I'll attach some files showing the problem!

Regarding further breakage in kernel 4.2: This is not my experience at all. Running 4.2-4 from ArchLinux testing repo at the moment, for 13 hours today, and wireless is stable, albeit still with the issues discussed regarding 5GHz functionality and MAC address. But it's definitely not worse than before.

This is my experience too, although I am using 4.2.0 from Gentoo, gentoo-sources-4.2.0-r1, and the subsystem shown by lspci is different.

Can you use random MACs to work around the address duplication issue? I am using the systemd instructions from Arch on Gentoo without issue:

I've tried to use macchanger, it doesn't seem to work for me.

For the record I have the same subsystem reported as Tormen, 106b:0133, and my setup works fine as previously stated.
Comment 44 Tormen 2015-09-18 07:07:27 UTC
Hi,

thanks for the feedback !! 

Could you be so kind to state what firmware version you are using ?

Should look like this in "dmesg" output:
[  719.562965] brcmfmac: brcmf_c_preinit_dcmds: Firmware version = wl0: Mar 13 2015 08:11:08 version 7.35.177.36 (r540934) FWID 01-e4dc15b

You might need to add these kernel-parameters to get this:
       brcmfmac.debug=0xd416
and for systemd potentially:
       systemd.log_level=debug systemd.log_target=kmsg log_buf_len=1M

Thanks in advance !

So you are using the same firmware!

... but as you pointed out in comment 41, your subsystem is different and you are using the 43ba in an older version of the Macbook.

sudo lspci -vvk |grep -A1 "Network controller"
 03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation Device 43ba (rev 01)
	Subsystem: Apple Inc. Device 0133

sudo lspci -vvnk | grep -A1 :43ba
 03:00.0 0280: 14e4:43ba (rev 01)
	Subsystem: 106b:0133

@Broadcom / @Arend :

Not sure if this can be consistant with the fact that for me it really does not work :(

Also is there anything that I can do to zoom in further on the problem, or are the dmesg with debug enabled that I attached are enough ?

Sorry to split hairs, but in case it helps. The 11,5 is actually slightly newer (Mid 2015) than the 12,1 (early 2015).

Comment 49 arjen.veenhuizen 2015-09-18 13:09:27 UTC
The most important difference between 12,1 and 11,5 are the processor models (Broadwell [1] vs Haswell [2] respectively) and thus different chipsets as well.

Wifi is totally stable, but 5GHz is not found, and it takes 60 seconds to load on startup.

Same results for wireless on 4.3-rc1; except it breaks virtualbox so I'm sticking to 4.2 for now.

I have a MBP12,1, no issues for me except the 5GHz and MAC address.
Comment 53 thejoe 2015-09-18 17:44:16 UTC

So could you repeat with more debugging enabled, ie. debug=0x81416.
Comment 56 Tormen 2015-09-23 10:18:30 UTC
Hi Arend,

For now I was using brcmfmac.debug=0xd416, I now changed to brcmfmac.debug=0x81416.
I'll let you know. Should I try this debug setting with the old firmware ?

Because since I am using the new firmware :
I did not experience this problem anymore :)
But I am still testing to see if I can see any persistant traits of misbehaviour.
So far I can state that overall I see less connection problems, but still some things seem odd. For instance I'd say since the time I am using the new firmware I got a few times into problem that notebook did not want to wakup from sleep ... eneded to hard-reset (force-off) the notebook. Not sure yet where this comes from.

There's new firmware? Are you sure you don't mean new driver patches? If there is new firmware, where do I find it? I've been watching http://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git/log/ for new firmware, is there somewhere else I should look?

X2 new firmware? and you can suspend to ram? using some workaround like deactivate XHCI?
Comment 59 Tormen 2015-09-23 12:11:00 UTC
Suspend to ram : Please see bug : https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=101681

you may, but not sure if it will give much clues.

"sleep" means suspend-to-ram, right? You could try following:

# echo devices > /sys/power/pm_test
# echo mem > /sys/power/state

and provide dmesg output.

sleep == suspend-to-ram, yes.

When I do "systemctl suspend" while X/KDE running, it works.

When I do the 2 above commands :
# echo devices > /sys/power/pm_test
# echo mem > /sys/power/state

The first command returns. The second command does a sleep, but wakes up 4-5 seconds later by itself (screen comes back on) accompanied by a complete system hang.
I tried it 2x. Both times the same result.
Looking at journalctl -b -1 did not reveal anything.

2015-09-23 test results


I then did 3 tests in "init 1" single user mode:
  * 1st_init-1_trial : "systemctl suspend" 		with "cat /proc/acpi/wakeup" showing ARPT, XHC1 and LID0 *enabled*
  * 2nd_init-1_trial : "echo mem > /sys/power/state" 	with "cat /proc/acpi/wakeup" showing *only* ARPT enabled
  * 3rd_init-1_trial : "systemctl suspend" 		with "cat /proc/acpi/wakeup" showing *only* ARPT enabled
  * 4th-trial_under-kde_after_rmmod-brcmfmac : see info.txt for issued commands

Please find all results in the attached .zip file.
Comment 63 Adrian Bjugård 2015-09-30 13:15:41 UTC
Can we please skip these unimportant instability issues and focus on getting the driver to set the correct MAC address and sub-channels? At the moment the driver is LITERALLY unusable if there are more than one bcm43602 users trying to use the same network. At my university there are now 6 of us running linux which means we actually can't use our laptops. What needs to be done? Is it Broadcom we need to nag? Are they not signing off on new firmware releases? What's the deal?
Comment 64 Tormen 2015-09-30 14:46:40 UTC
Sorry Adrian, I won't skip reporting instability issues that lead to a complete kernel FREEZE. It's why I opened the bug (see title of bug ;)).

But I am glad that you mentioned the problem(s) ! And am happy to push forward with the problems that you added to this bug!

I was able to get 5GHz to work with the new firmware that was posted by Arend van Spriel. You can read more at http://marc.info/?l=linux-wireless&m=144312043720069

If you want to give the blob a try, check:
https://github.com/rsalveti/ubuntu-linux-firmware/blob/wily-brcmfmac/brcm/brcmfmac43602-pcie.ap.bin
https://github.com/rsalveti/ubuntu-linux-firmware/blob/wily-brcmfmac/brcm/brcmfmac43602-pcie.bin

Just replace your current firmware at /lib/firmware/brcm and reload the module.

I can confirm that this solves the 5GHz issue on the MBP 11,5. Suspend/resume still does not work.

This firmware has been published to the linux-firmware repository as well.
Comment 70 Ben 2015-10-11 12:38:41 UTC
Hi,

With none of the driver (from the kernel, and the one discussed above) I can't get the wifi to work.
"iwlist scan" show me the available wifi around me, then it seems able to log in WPA mode. Once logged in, wicd show me a poor quality (0/100) then disconnect after 1sec.
I don't know what more information to give you, please just ask.

Comment 71 Ben 2015-10-11 13:23:45 UTC
I am very confused, for my first post I was wrong.

After digging a bit more, it seems it is related to wicd and not the driver provided by Arend van Spriel. When using wpa_supplicant and dhcpch manually it works, but with wicd running the card receive a disconnect event locally generated.

Anyway, sorry for the noise and thanks every one!

Thank you for this.

Does this firmware image also fix the duplicate MAC address issue?
Comment 73 Tormen 2015-10-17 16:38:14 UTC
Yes. The new firmware does set the correct MAC address and sub-channels.

dmesg -T from : brcmfmac got "stuck" somehow ! (probably after wakeup from suspend) ... and finally got working again after many rmmod / modprobe brcmfmac...

Dear Arend,

I just ran into a problem with brcmfmac : brcmfmac got "stuck" somehow ! (probably after wakeup from suspend)

Meaning : The module was loaded, ifconfig showed the interface, but it was not usable. dmesg showed kernel oopses !

I then tried to rmmod brcmfmac and modprobe brcmfmac /many/ times. It still did not work and finally while preparing proper debug output for you, I started working again :((

I attached the FINAL dmesg output after it started working again. Hopefully you can still get an idea of the problem.

Please let me know.
Potentially please advise if I should check something specific next time around. 

Otherwise I will pay attention to catch this nasty little bug(ger) better on camera next time around ;)

Happy holidays !!

Tormen
