Modified Files: src/sys/dev/pci/ixgbe: ixgbe.c Log Message: Fix another poll mode assumption breaking. Implemented by email@example.com, I just commit by proxy. ixgbe_rearm_queues() writes EICS register(s). 82599, X540 and X550 specifications say "Following a write of 1b to any bit in the EICS register (interrupt cause set), its corresponding bit in the EIMS register is auto set as well enabling its interrupt." in "Extended Interrupt Auto Mask Enable (EIAM) Register" section. That is, ixgbe_rearm_queues() causes interrupts regardless of the status managed by ixgbe_enable_queue()/ixgbe_disable_queue(). That can break poll mode assumption. In fact, the problem occurs in the following situation - CPU#A has high load traffic, in contrast, CPU#B has not so high load traffic - CPU#A is occurred interrupt by its NIC queue - CPU#A calls ixgbe_disable_queue() in interrupt handler(ixgbe_msix_que()) - CPU#A kick softint handler(ixgbe_handle_que()) - CPU#A begins softint - CPU#A's NIC queue is set que->txr->busy flag - With some reason, CPU#A can do ixg interrupt handler E.g. when one of CPU#A's softnet handlers sleeps, ipl is lowered - CPU#B starts callout - CPU#B calls ixgbe_local_timer1() - CPU#B writes EICS bit corresponding CPU#A's NIC queue bit - CPU#A's NIC queue causes interrupt whie CPU#A is running in poll mode - CPU#A calls ixgbe_disable_queue() in interrupt handler *again* - CPU#A has done polling, and then CPU#A calls ixgbe_enable_queue() *once* - CPU#A's NIC queue interrupt is disabled until ixg is detached as ixgbe_disable_queue() is called twice though ixgbe_disable_queue() is called once only NOTE: 82598 does not say so, but it is treated in the same way because of no harm. By the way, we will refactor ixgbe_local_timer(watchdog processing) later.
