a) The driver appears to be ioremapping more virtual address space
   than the machine can provide.

   Is that expected?

b) When ioremap_nocache() failed, the driver went and crashed the
   machine.  I don't see how this can happen - via_pci_probe() seems to
   handle this correctly.

   It should return -ENOMEM rather than -1, but that's minor.

Hi,

excuse me to interfere although I don't know the memory 
subsystem/functions very well.

I don't know.
Is the video memory size detection of (I think) 256 MB correct?
What is the graphic chip? (CLE266, CN400, CN700, KM400, CX700 or VX800?)

If an ioremap_nocache() can cause this, I don't see why it can't be the 
later one:
viaparinfo->io_virt = ioremap_nocache()
As far as I know this is only used for acceleration so a quick test can 
be done with viafb_accel=0 module parameter.

Hi,

excuse me to interfere although I don't know the memory 
subsystem/functions very well.

This makes sense:
2 GB physical RAM
- 256 MB used as shared memory video RAM
= 1792 MB available
I don't know where the other memory is lost but the video memory size 
seems to be detected correctly.

I don't know if I get you right here:
After "modprobe viafb viafb_accel=0" the module does no longer crash? 
But I don't know what state you are talking about. Is the module usable? 
(i.e. does "modprobe fbcon" give you a working framebuffer console?) Or 
can you otherwise post a new log?

An alternative to disabling the hardware acceleration might be to 
increase vmalloc=260M to a value greater than 256+16 MB, like 
vmalloc=300MB or so.

Okay, I think I have a deeper understanding now:
- the driver tries to remap 256 MB (video framebuffer) and 16 MB (MMIO 
registers)
- the free region is per default only 128 MB and is only on systems with 
significant less physical RAM than kernel virtual memory space bigger

So in addition to handle the second ioremap failure (for which I have 
already a patch prepared) one of the following might be nice
- add/reuse module/boot parameter to limit the available video memory size
- automatically try to remap smaller parts of the video memory if the 
first ioremap fails
- after having checked the code again I think it uses very rarely the 
remapped video memory. If I didn't miss a big thing after having my 
recent patches applied there might be 2-3 places left that use a few 
kilobytes of it. Nothing that justifies permanently remapping the whole 
bunch. If no one speaks against it I'll try to replace this big remap 
with one or two small ones. Though this might take a while.

Any comments?

For my patch to fix this bug I would be interested in something like this:
* send to kernel "vmalloc=260M"
# modprobe viafb viafb_accel=0
If it is similar to the result of test #2 I could simply disable 
hardware acceleration if the second ioremap fails which is IMHO better 
than refusing to work as hardware acceleration is a nice to have but not 
crucial for device operation.

This looks fine. I'd guess the driver itself is working. Unfortunately I 
do not fully understand the term "test color mode". Can you describe 
what you see? monocolor, if yes what color or some strange patterns? 
even whether it is shown immediately or is somehow slowly painted might 
help.

Perhaps using the module parameter viafb_active_dev= with one of CRT, 
DVI or LCD helps?
If it doesn't....well I'm aware of one bug in that code that I hit on my 
netbook. Will send you a fix if your observations sound related.

> ps: other \ standart  kernel framebuffer module on this card works well

Yeah, the problem we now hit is some monitor misconfiguration but as the 
standard vga/vesa driver does not really know about those device 
specific things that's expected.

Created attachment 25774 [details]
Segment of kern.log showing output of added debug output in relevant functions.

printk debug statements were added to the relevant functions while tracking down the problem.  I've attached this trace in case it helps.
Comment 13 Tom Hanson 2010-03-31 17:15:14 UTC
I just encountered this same error (with the same size, which is significant)
testing a new driver in 2.6.31.6.

There appears to be a bug in _ioremap_caller().  In my case the driver is
attempting to map a PCI BAR of size 0xfffffff.

_ioremap_caller() uses the supplied phys_addr and size to calculate last_addr. 
It then uses last_addr to calculate (and overwrite) size! A problem in itself.

In re-calculating size, it first page-aligns last_addr which has the effect of
rounding up the address, and thus the size.  In my case size is now 0x10000000.
This is the real problem: the size has effectively been page-aligned!

_ioremap_caller() calls get_vm_area_caller() using that size.
get_vm_area_caller() calls __get_vm_area_node() with the same size and a
starting address of VMALLOC_START.

Based on the size, __get_vm_area_node() determines that alignment is to 0x80000
and and adds an extra page to the size (I'm sure there's a good reason for
this...) changing it to 0x10001000.  It then calls alloc_vmap_area().

alloc_vmap_area() aligns vstart to an 0x80000 boundary, changing it from
0xf7ffe000 to 0xf8000000.   When it validates (addr + size - 1 < addr) it
overflows, failing the test and it outputs the error "vmap allocation for size
268439552 failed: use vmalloc=<size> to increase size"

The main problem is that the size is (effectively) being page-aligned.  I don't
see any way that this can be valid.
Comment 14 Tom Hanson 2010-03-31 18:39:13 UTC
__get_vm_area_node() also page-aligns the size, producing the same problem.  I still don't see how page-aligning a size can be valid, but the simple fix of removing the page-aligns breaks other things badly.
Comment 15 jb 2010-04-29 10:27:14 UTC
Viafb on oqo model 02 (cx700).
Prior to 2.6.33 not started (errors in dmesg) without vmalloc=150MB.
2.6.33 and 2.6.34 vmalloc no needed.
When started with noaccel and mode 640x400-60 a few bottom lines
are not visible.
Trying to change mode freezes completely computer without any log.
Maybe these problems are connected with ID 15372.
