<4> [2709.442623] --------------------------------------------------------
<4> [2709.442626] i915_selftest/7718 just changed the state of lock:
<4> [2709.442628] ffff88825da80ea0 (&i915_request_get(rq)->submit/1){-...}, at: __i915_sw_fence_complete+0x1b2/0x250 [i915]
<4> [2709.442673] but this lock took another, HARDIRQ-unsafe lock in the past:
<4> [2709.442675]  (&ce->pin_mutex/2){+...}
<4> [2709.442676] 

and interrupts could create inverse lock ordering between them.

<4> [2709.442681] 
other info that might help us debug this:
<4> [2709.442683] Chain exists of:
  &i915_request_get(rq)->submit/1 --> &engine->active.lock --> &ce->pin_mutex/2

<4> [2709.442688]  Possible interrupt unsafe locking scenario:

<4> [2709.442691]        CPU0                    CPU1

This annotation never stops giving! The silly part of it is that it's purely an annotation meant to make the lock handling easier!!!

Chris, is this a real problem or just noise?

No, this one is purely self-inflicted.

commit 0587152bf9a0d7ebfd7fcb401068a742027adb2a (HEAD -> drm-intel-next-queued, drm-intel/drm-intel-next-queued)

    drm/i915: Drop assertion that ce->pin_mutex guards state updates
    The actual conditions are that we know the GPU is not accessing the
    context, and we hold a pin on the context image to allow CPU access. We
    used a fake lock on ce->pin_mutex so that we could try and use lockdep
    to assert that access is serialised, but the various different
    hardirq/softirq contexts where we need to *fake* holding the pin_mutex
    are causing more trouble.
    Still it would be nice if we did have a way to reassure ourselves that
    the direct update to the context image is serialised with GPU execution.
    In the meantime, stop lockdep complaining about false irq inversions.
