Description of problem:
Windows of OpenGL applications ran with DRI_PRIME=1 environment variable (hybrid graphics) are filled with white backgrounds when scaled instead of being rendered properly.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot with kernel version 5.5rc1 or higher and login to your xorg session (I use xmonad without a compositor)
2. Run any OpenGL application with DRI_PRIME=1 set. I used glxgears for this test (tested mpv with --vo=opengl, radium are known to be affected as well)
For example:

DRI_PRIME=1 glxgears

Actual results:
Half of the window is filled with white, white pixels do not go away as you resize the window.

Expected results:
Application is rendered correctly.

Bisect results:

    iommu/amd: Convert AMD iommu driver to the dma-iommu api

    Convert the AMD iommu driver to the dma-iommu api. Remove the iova
    handling and reserve region code from the AMD iommu driver.

Comment 5 Joerg Roedel 2020-02-19 09:58:55 UTC
This is likely a bug in the DRM code for your GPU. The recent changes in the AMD IOMMU driver might cause sg-list entries to be merged by the DMA-API. Some drivers probably don't handle this correctly.

I've seen a similar problem with RDMA devices, caused by the same change.

Please report this issue to the developers of your GPU driver.
Comment 6 Alex Deucher 2020-02-21 19:02:01 UTC
Please attach a copy of your dmesg output.  @Joerg, can you point to what changes are required in drivers to handle this?
Comment 7 Alex Deucher 2020-02-21 19:05:24 UTC
Also, has anyone seen similar issues with other IOMMU drivers that use use the dma-iommu api?  If not, that would point to a problem on the IOMMU side.

@Alex Added dmesg log
Ticket for drm/amd is at https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/drm/amd/issues/1056

Tried the Patch/hack in the RDMA thread (https://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-nfs/msg76402.html) and it helps with this issue as well fwiw

The AMD IOMMU driver in v5.5 switched its DMA-API implementation to the common dma-iommu code. The main difference in behavior between the old and the dma-iommu implementation is that dma-iommu does sg-list merging, which means it can return less mapped segments than requested. See this paragraph from Documentation/DMA-API.txt:

>         int
>         dma_map_sg(struct device *dev, struct scatterlist *sg,
>                    int nents, enum dma_data_direction direction)
> Returns: the number of DMA address segments mapped (this may be shorter
> than <nents> passed in if some elements of the scatter/gather list are
> physically or virtually adjacent and an IOMMU maps them with a single
> entry).

There is only one other driver on x86, the VT-d driver. And this one uses its own DMA-API implementation which doesn't do sg-entry merging.

I have also seen similar bug-reports for RDMA devices, and the culprit there was also that the RDMA device driver did not correctly handle the sg-entry merging case.
