Description Roland Scheidegger 2005-02-09 15:54:01 UTC
the use of texture borders causes segfaults with the r200 driver. Not that
anyone would use that feature, I just discovered that accidentally. Start
texdown, hit "b", boom.
Actually, at one time I did not get a segfault, but a drm error instead
([drm:radeon_cp_dispatch_texture] *ERROR* EFAULT). Since texture borders should
cause a fallback afaik, I'm not sure how that happened.
As pretty much always when something goes wrong in the pixel fallback path, I
can't get a backtrace from that neither since the segfault happens behind a
Comment 1 Roland Scheidegger 2005-02-09 17:57:20 UTC
Some more digging found this is not only related to texture borders, other
rasterization fallbacks suffer from that as well (easily tested with texenv,
just changed one of the texture wrap modes to GL_CLAMP_TO_BORDER which causes a
rast fallback). Summary changed accordingly.
It reaches the r200Fallback path just fine, and then strangely later dies in
_tnl_run_pipeline called from r200WrapRunPipeline.
Comment 2 Roland Scheidegger 2005-02-09 18:29:30 UTC
Simply calling UNLOCK_HARDWARE in r200SpanRenderStart was all that was needed to
get this locally debuggable.

That said, I have no idea what is going on...

Comment 4 Roland Scheidegger 2005-03-04 16:48:49 UTC
Some more debugging info (still from texdown):
(gdb) print count
$13 = 3
(gdb) print ((TNLcontext *)ctx->swtnl_context)->clipspace->attr[0]
$14 = {attrib = 0, format = 6, vertoffset = 0, vertattrsize = 16,
  inputptr = 0x8207b90 "", inputstride = 16, insert = 0x3b0d0db0,
  emit = 0x3afeb3a0 <insert_4f_3>, extract = 0x3afec7d0 <extract_4f_viewport>,
  vp = 0x808cd90}
(gdb) print ((TNLcontext *)ctx->swtnl_context)->clipspace->attr[1]
$15 = {attrib = 3, format = 15, vertoffset = 144, vertattrsize = 4,
  inputptr = 0x80614ec "", inputstride = 0, insert = 0x3b0d0eac,
  emit = 0x3afeb910 <insert_4ub_4f_rgba_3>,
  extract = 0x3afec990 <extract_4chan_4f_rgba>, vp = 0x808cd90}
(gdb) print ((TNLcontext *)ctx->swtnl_context)->clipspace->attr[2]
$16 = {attrib = 8, format = 3, vertoffset = 16, vertattrsize = 16,
  inputptr = 0x81f2954 "", inputstride = 16, insert = 0x3b0d0d5c,
  emit = 0x3afeb4b0 <insert_2f_2>, extract = 0x3afec8a0 <extract_4f>, vp =
(gdb) print VB->AttribPtr
$17 = {0x0, 0x81f69ec, 0x81f6a08, 0x81f6a24, 0x81f6a40, 0x81f6a5c, 0x81f6a78,
  0x81f6a94, 0x81f6ab0, 0x81f6acc, 0x81f6ae8, 0x81f6b04, 0x81f6b20, 0x81f6b3c,
  0x81f6b58, 0x81f6b74, 0x81f6b90, 0x81f6bac, 0x81f6bc8, 0x81f6be4, 0x81f6c00,
  0x81f6c1c, 0x81f6c38, 0x81f6c54, 0x81f6c70, 0x81f6c8c, 0x81f6ca8, 0x81f6cc4,
  0x81f6ce0, 0x0, 0x0}

So, the first pointer (for attrib 0 (position)) is the NULL pointer leading to
the segfault, the other ones (attrib 3 (color0), attrib 8 (tex0)) look rather
reasonable (?). Unfortunately I'm no tnl wizard...
Comment 5 Roland Scheidegger 2005-03-09 15:06:35 UTC
Some more debugging showed the problem:
When a rasterization fallback is hit, _tnl_need_projected_coords must be set to
true. This indeed happens, however r200ChooseVertexState will get called later
and this may set (depending on current vertex format) this to false again. When
this is set to false this will cause VB->NdcPtr to be NULL (in t_vb_vertex.c,
run_vertex_stage) which will in turn cause the VB->AttribPtr[VERT_ATTRIB_POS] to
be NULL too (ss_context.c, _swsetup_RenderStart) --> boom.
Comment 6 Roland Scheidegger 2005-03-09 15:11:08 UTC
Created attachment 2067 [details] [review]
possible fix for rasterization fallbacks

this patch fixes the segfaults (tested with gl-117 and texdown), however I'm
not sure if it actually is really correct. I can't quite follow the command
flow of the tnl pipeline, what should and what actually is executed, validated
and what not is hard to understand. Someone with a more thourough understanding
of the tnl pipeline care to comment?
Comment 7 Dieter Nützel 2005-03-12 12:25:07 UTC
Sorry Roland, 
but your fix isn't enough. 
Play around with 's', 'f' and 'b'.

I'll look at it, but I'm pretty sure this is a different problem (though related
to the texture border raster fallback). When analyzing the segfaults I already
noticed that the driver will attempt to upload textures with borders which will
always cause a fallback to the gpu anyway, and wondered if it's actually safe to
do that. Looks like that's not the case...
Comment 9 Eric Anholt 2005-05-31 15:21:22 UTC
I can reproduce a similar backtrace on radeon and r200 using neverball, which is
doing a rasterization fallback beacuse I'm running at 16bpp (no stencil).

I'll commit the fix if you don't come up with a better one, the radeon driver is
only affected since it was converted to t_vertex.

I was just noting the ability to reproduce, not saying something either way
about the patch.  I haven't looked into the patch.
