I am doing some experiments with LCD7" with the kernel 5.4.8 and occasionally i get this crash.
Can someone explain or give some directions on how to find the offending error based on the crash log?  Any idea what could be causing this?

The issue is that sun4i_pwm_apply() calls sun4i_pwm_calculate() which
calls clk_get_rate() while holding a spinlock and clk_get_rate() may
sleep.

It's a bug in pwm-sun4i driver.

Thank you Vasily for the explanation.

Is this a known bug or i have possibly introduced it while patching the kernel?

I asked this because i have not touched the pwm-sun4i driver code, Only the MIPI-DSI on top of 5.4.8.

Just adding some info, 5.3.y has the same issue.

Yes the bug is not fix mainline.

I will open a discussion with the PWM maintainer

Hi Clément,

Looks like Kernel 5.5 will be affected too.

Thank you.

Yes but if a fix is sent it will be backported to all the kernels
affected still maintained.

What command do you do to reproduce this?

Clément,

It usually crashes while changing the LCD backlight.
Not sure it is related, but some time later the board enters in a sleep mode and shutdown itself (don't resume from that). Screen saver and power savings are disabled.

Yes totally makes sense,

Could you test with this patch on top of linux-next ?
https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/11326439/

Hi Clément,

Sure, i will try to apply the MIPI-DSI patch to linux-next, but i see there are a lot of changes to be made and this can take some time.

I will report back when i get the results.

MIPI DSI is already applied in Linux-next for a64.

Hi Clément,

I can still see some diff from what i have working in 5.4.8. Maybe this is redundant and not necessary. Anyway, I will test it soon.

Hi Clément,

backligth.png

I can confirm that the patch fixed the issue (just need to run for a day to make it does not break something else). MIPI-DSI worked out-of-the-box, i just noticed the refresh rate seems to be a bit wrong, maybe i tested it during the night and now it is possible to note this in daylight.
Any chance we see a back-port on this soon?

Thank you!

Here is a workaround that seems to be working so far for the kernel 5.3 and 5.4.

Small Obs: 
During the tests, dimming the lcd backlight up and down for one hour worked without issues.
I let the board idle for 6 hrs, worked 5 min on other things and had a crash. I could not recover the log to investigate it, but does not seem to be related to the issue.

Ok great,

So If you test the patch on linux-next could you add your Tested-by tag on this patch ?
