      drm/lima: driver for ARM Mali4xx GPUs · f6858923
      Qiang Yu authored
      - Mali 4xx GPUs have two kinds of processors GP and PP. GP is for
        OpenGL vertex shader processing and PP is for fragment shader
        processing. Each processor has its own MMU so prcessors work in
        virtual address space.
      - There's only one GP but multiple PP (max 4 for mali 400 and 8
        for mali 450) in the same mali 4xx GPU. All PPs are grouped
        togather to handle a single fragment shader task divided by
        FB output tiled pixels. Mali 400 user space driver is
        responsible for assign target tiled pixels to each PP, but mali
        450 has a HW module called DLBU to dynamically balance each
        PP's load.
      - User space driver allocate buffer object and map into GPU
        virtual address space, upload command stream and draw data with
        CPU mmap of the buffer object, then submit task to GP/PP with
        a register frame indicating where is the command stream and misc
        settings.
      - There's no command stream validation/relocation due to each user
        process has its own GPU virtual address space. GP/PP's MMU switch
        virtual address space before running two tasks from different
        user process. Error or evil user space code just get MMU fault
        or GP/PP error IRQ, then the HW/SW will be recovered.
      - Use GEM+shmem for MM. Currently just alloc and pin memory when
        gem object creation. GPU vm map of the buffer is also done in
        the alloc stage in kernel space. We may delay the memory
        allocation and real GPU vm map to command submission stage in the
        furture as improvement.
      - Use drm_sched for GPU task schedule. Each OpenGL context should
        have a lima context object in the kernel to distinguish tasks
        from different user. drm_sched gets task from each lima context
        in a fair way.
