Description Kevin McCormack 2015-08-22 03:08:59 UTC
I upgraded my system today from the 4.0 kernel to 4.1. After rebooting, I am getting crazy flickering that makes my system unusable. I rebooted and disabled dynamic power management with radeon.dpm=0 as a kernel parameter. The flickering is now gone. I have an R9270X running with the open source drivers. I did a quick search and could not find a similar issue anywhere. Does anyone have any suggestions?

UPDATE: I built the kernel using the linux-git package in AUR and have the same issue with DPM. linux-git 4.2rc7
Comment 1 Kevin McCormack 2015-08-22 21:22:24 UTC
dmesg reports this...

[drm:si_dpm_set_power_state [radeon]] *ERROR* si_restrict_performance_levels_before_switch failed
Comment 2 Kevin McCormack 2015-08-22 21:34:16 UTC
I tried switching the connection to my monitor from DisplayPort to HDMI and I got...

[  317.193439] [drm:radeon_dp_link_train [radeon]] *ERROR* clock recovery reached max voltage
[  317.193464] [drm:radeon_dp_link_train [radeon]] *ERROR* clock recovery failed


Downgrading to linux 4.0.7-2-ARCH resolves this issue, so this seems to be a regression introduced with linux 4.1
Comment 3 Alex Deucher 2015-08-24 05:10:13 UTC
Did you change any hardware when you udpated?  E.g., a new monitor?  Please attach your xorg log and dmesg output.  Can you bisect?
Comment 4 Kevin McCormack 2015-08-24 21:33:42 UTC
I did not change any hardware. I tried changing the connection to the monitor because I had issues a few months back with DisplayPort but that didn't help here. I don't seem to have an xorg log in /var/log/ but and the most interesting line of my dmesg was what I included above...

[drm:si_dpm_set_power_state [radeon]] *ERROR* si_restrict_performance_levels_before_switch failed

I built the 4.2rc8 from git last night and the issue is still there. I am going to get the entire dmesg for you now.

dmesg output while running linux-git-4.2rc8.r0.gc13dcf9-1-x86_64

This is the dmesg output while running 4.2rc8 built from git last night.
Comment 6 Kevin McCormack 2015-08-24 21:40:13 UTC
I just uploaded the dmesg output. I have never done bisecting before. Is this a good place to start?

Comment 7 Kevin McCormack 2015-08-25 01:38:05 UTC
Well I tried bisecting and got this...
$ git bisect start
Checking out files: 100% (14034/14034), done.
Previous HEAD position was d0a3997... Merge tag 'sound-4.1-rc1' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tiwai/sound

Your branch is up-to-date with 'origin/master'.
Comment 8 Alex Deucher 2015-08-25 01:54:50 UTC
You need to flag which commit or tag was good and which was bad.
Comment 9 Kevin McCormack 2015-08-25 01:56:16 UTC
OK, I am giving it a try now, sorry for my noob-ness :\ it takes a while to compile.
Comment 10 Kevin McCormack 2015-09-06 00:54:44 UTC
So I have been trying to do this bisect following the Arch Linux guide. I was on vacation for a while but am back now. This bisecting stuff sure takes awhile! I just want to make sure that it looks like I am on the right trail, so here the the log so far...

Comment 11 Kevin McCormack 2015-09-06 13:58:34 UTC
OK, so good news and bad news...the good news is that I finished the bisect and seem to have definitely found a bad commit. However, the bad news is that when I run this compiled kernel I can't even boot. I just get a black screen with no response from caps lock or ctr+alt+F4. Here is the log...

    tracing: Export tracing clock functions
    
    Critical tracepoint hooks should never call anything that takes a lock,
    so they are unable to call getrawmonotonic() or ktime_get().
    
    Export the rest of the tracing clock functions so can be used in
    tracepoint hooks.
    
    Background: We have a customer that adds their own module and registers
    a tracepoint hook to sched_wakeup. They were using ktime_get() for a
    time source, but it grabs a seq lock and caused a deadlock to occur.

    The prototype of ftrace_output_event was added by commit 1d6bae966e90

Comment 13 Michel Dänzer 2015-09-08 06:38:34 UTC
You should only run "git bisect" for commits which exhibit the same symptoms as described in this report. For commits exhibiting other issues, in particular such that you can't tell whether the problem described in this report occurs or not, you should run "git bisect skip" instead.
Comment 14 Kevin McCormack 2015-09-08 21:36:03 UTC
Michel, thank you for this, I will try to bisect again...it should only take 13 compiles! :/

(In reply to Michel Dänzer from comment #13)

That should have said "git bisect bad" BTW.
Comment 16 Kevin McCormack 2015-09-09 16:03:43 UTC
Right, I thought so. :) I have a busy day today and this week so it will take me a couple of days to do the bisect. I hope I can be helpful!
Comment 17 Kevin McCormack 2015-09-14 22:31:13 UTC
I have been bisecting when I have a chance and it is coming along slowly. I did figure out a nice way to reduce compile times from 90min+ down to 20min using `MAKEFLAGS=-j8 makepkg -e` with my FX-8370. I have been running into a lot of bisected kernels that simply won't boot and running git bisect skip but this seems to be prolonging the process. I do hope I am on the right track as I think the issue is somewhere between 4.0 and 4.1. Here is my log so far...

Comment 18 Kevin McCormack 2015-09-15 02:18:20 UTC
Alright, I seem to have reached the end of the bisect and got this:
There are only 'skip'ped commits left to test.
The first bad commit could be any of:
2f1b6b7d9a815f341b18dfd26a363f37d4d3c96a
524630d5824c7a75aab568c6bd1423fd748cd3bb

b953c0d234bc72e8489d3bf51a276c5c4ec85345
We cannot bisect more!

Comment 19 Kevin McCormack 2015-09-15 13:35:57 UTC
OK, I wasn't satisfied with the last bisect, so I decided to bisect again between 4.0 and 4.2 to see if I could get anymore info. I think I have identified the culprit!!

5dfc71bc44d91d1620505c064fa22b0b3db58a9d is the first bad commit

Patch that removes the 5dfc71bc44d91d1620505c064fa22b0b3db58a9d commit

I created this patch which is just the reverse of Alex's 5dfc71bc44d91d1620505c064fa22b0b3db58a9d commit. I can confirm that this fixes the issue for me when applied to 4.3.0-rc1-gd25ed27 built today from git.

Could you guys revert the patch? Maybe there is something that can be changed in the quirk that might let the quirk stay in without causing problems on systems like mine and Kevin's.
