dmesg output when loading/unloading brcmfmac on a working kernel (132.45 KB, text/plain)

Description Ben 2016-10-20 06:51:31 UTC

Since I upgraded the system yesterday, brcmfmac is not able to recognize the chip anymore. It was working on previous kernel 4.7.XX (can't remember the full version number). I am now on :
% uname -a
Linux lamontagne 4.8.2-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Oct 17 08:11:46 CEST 2016 x86_64 GNU/Linux

When probing brcmfmac I got in dmesg:
[10396.415322] usbcore: registered new interface driver brcmfmac
[10396.415375] brcmfmac: brcmf_chip_recognition: chip backplane type 15 is not supported
[10396.415377] brcmfmac: brcmf_pcie_probe: failed 14e4:43ba

And last detail, my card is :
% lspci -s 03:00.0 -vv

Tell me if you need more information?

Digging a bit, when loading the module with debug information I can get:
[14845.365215] brcmfmac: brcmfmac_module_init No platform data available.
[14845.365346] brcmfmac: brcmf_usb_register Enter

[14845.365367] brcmfmac: brcmf_pcie_register Enter

[14845.365525] brcmfmac: brcmf_chip_recognition found AXI chip: BCM65535, rev=15

[14845.365527] brcmf_pcie_probe: failed 14e4:43ba

It seems the data read from the bus are wrong "0xffffffff" as it gives : BCM65535, rev=15

Comment 2 Ben 2016-10-21 15:57:26 UTC
I don't know what to do more, then I downgraded to a previous working kernel:
% uname -a
Linux lamontagne 4.7.6-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Fri Sep 30 19:28:42 CEST 2016 x86_64 GNU/Linux

And brcmfmac is working again (interface is created I still didn't try to connect to an ESSID).
I attached the output of dmesg when "insmod brcmfmac.ko debug=0xfffffff" in case it is useful.

Please tell me I if can try something else, or give more information to help?

Still the same issue with kernel 4.9.35-ARCH (lts) and 4.11.7-1-ARCH.

Am I the only one with this issue?

Comment 5 Ben 2017-07-11 13:07:20 UTC

I finally found the solution in this comment: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=196019#c6

Just add to make the PCIe reset as stated in the comment and it works!
I mark the bug as duplicated as both seems to be related.
