system diagnostics

This was first observed while rendering video in our application after upgrading to Ubuntu 16.04 and enabling TearFree setting.  We have reproduced the issue outside of our application with a minimal code sample:

steps to reproduce:
git clone https://github.com/charo-m/4K_displaywall_bench.git
git checkout amd_xfreeze_repro
sudo apt-get install libxrandr-dev libxinerama-dev libxcursor-dev libglfw3-dev libglm-dev
cmake .
./4K_displaywall_bench -width 3840 -height 1080 -swap_interval 1 -gl 3 -i images/bubble4K.png

X.Org X Server 1.18.4
09:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Tahiti XT GL [FirePro W9000]
OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on AMD TAHITI (DRM 2.43.0, LLVM 3.8.0)
OpenGL version string: 3.0 Mesa 11.2.0
OpenGL core profile version string: 4.1 (Core Profile) Mesa 11.2.0
OS:    Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS
Kernel:  4.4.0-45-generic

Two 2K monitors:
  1920x1080 @ 60Hz  (not rotated)  DP1 at pos 0x0, DP2 at pos 1920x0
Server hardware:
  Dell  Precision T5600

**** Option “TearFree” “on”  ****

The issue does not seem to happen with a single monitor.  The code sample re-uploads the same image data every frame with glTexSubImage2D.  The "-swap_interval [0|1]" option maps to glXSwapIntervalEXT(0) which disables vsync or glXSwapIntervalEXT(1) which enables vsync.  The issue seems to be a race condition and so is more likely to happen under certain conditions (at least two monitors, T5600, tearfree enabled).

single monitor:
./4K_displaywall_bench -width 1920 -height 1080 -swap_interval 1 -gl 3 -i images/bubble4K.png   -> unlikely to happen at all / never reproduced

two monitors, viewport covers both, vsync enabled:
./4K_displaywall_bench -width 3840 -height 1080 -swap_interval 1 -gl 3 -i images/bubble4K.png   -> most likely to happen (usually within 15 min, but not always)

two monitors, viewport only covers first, vsync enabled:
./4K_displaywall_bench -width 1920 -height 1080 -swap_interval 1 -gl 3 -i images/bubble4K.png   -> unlikely to happen

two monitors, viewport covers both, vsync disabled:
./4K_displaywall_bench -width 3840 -height 1080 -swap_interval 0 -gl 3 -i images/bubble4K.png   -> unlikely to happen

Comment 1 Michel Dänzer 2016-11-09 00:50:06 UTC
Does the problem also occur with DRI3 enabled?

Does it still happen with current xf86-video-ati Git master?
Comment 2 Josep Torra 2016-11-09 01:30:40 UTC
Yes, it occurs with DRI3 enabled and with last week master of xf86-video-ati.

I'll double check again tomorrow.
Comment 3 Josep Torra 2016-11-09 12:42:41 UTC
Tried again with xf86-video-ati master and DRI3 with similar results.

Script to build mesa an x server from master

We had built mesa and X server master branches with this script and issue is also reproducible.
Comment 6 Josep Torra 2016-11-15 09:50:14 UTC
As per discussion in IRC we tried with radeon.msi=0 and this seems to solve the problem. But this leads to think that the root cause of the problem is in the kernel driver and needs to be addressed there.
Comment 7 Alex Deucher 2016-11-15 14:23:12 UTC
MSI problems tend to be platform problems.  What system is this?  What system chipset?
Comment 8 Josep Torra 2016-11-15 18:52:50 UTC
It's most often reproduced in the Dell T5600 systems with "Intel Corporation C600/X79 series chipset" and FirePro W9000.

But we also reproduced it few other systems based on chipset "Intel Corporation C610/X99 series chipset" and FirePro W600.

Not reproducible so far with an Intel Skylake system, Asus Z170 Pro gaming motherboard, with FirePro W600.

In the Dell T5600 the issue becomes hidden with the drm debug enabled in the following way.

echo 0xf > /sys/module/drm/parameters/debug

It's still triggered with 0xe instead of 0xf.
