#  define gettid() (pid_t)(syscall(__NR_gettid))

igt_fork_signal_helper ()

void
igt_fork_signal_helper (void);

Fork a child process using igt_fork_helper to interrupt the parent process with a SIGCONT signal at regular quick intervals. The corresponding dummy signal handler is installed in the parent process.

This is useful to exercise ioctl error paths, at least where those can be exercises by interrupting blocking waits, like stalling for the gpu. This helper can also be used from children spawned with igt_fork.

In tests with subtests this function can be called outside of failure catching code blocks like igt_fixture or igt_subtest.

Note that this just spews signals at the current process unconditionally and hence incurs quite a bit of overhead. For a more focused approach, with less overhead, look at the igt_while_interruptible code block macro.


igt_stop_signal_helper ()

void
igt_stop_signal_helper (void);

Stops the child process spawned with igt_fork_signal_helper() again.

In tests with subtests this function can be called outside of failure catching code blocks like igt_fixture or igt_subtest.


igt_suspend_signal_helper ()

void
igt_suspend_signal_helper (void);

Suspends the child process spawned with igt_fork_signal_helper(). This should be called before a critical section of code that has difficulty to make progress if interrupted frequently, like the clone() syscall called from a largish executable. igt_resume_signal_helper() must be called after the critical section to restart interruptions for the test.


igt_resume_signal_helper ()

void
igt_resume_signal_helper (void);

Resumes the child process spawned with igt_fork_signal_helper().

This should be paired with igt_suspend_signal_helper() and called after the problematic code sensitive to signals.


igt_fork_shrink_helper ()

void
igt_fork_shrink_helper (int fd);

Fork a child process using igt_fork_helper to force all available objects to be paged out (via i915_gem_shrink()).

This is useful to exercise swapping paths, without requiring us to hit swap.

This should only be used from an igt_fixture.


igt_stop_shrink_helper ()

void
igt_stop_shrink_helper (void);

Stops the child process spawned with igt_fork_shrink_helper().


igt_fork_hang_detector ()

void
igt_fork_hang_detector (int fd);

igt_stop_hang_detector ()

void
igt_stop_hang_detector (void);

igt_while_interruptible()

#define             igt_while_interruptible(enable)

Provides control flow such that all drmIoctl() (strictly igt_ioctl()) within the loop are forcibly injected with signals (SIGRTMIN).

This is useful to exercise ioctl error paths, at least where those can be exercises by interrupting blocking waits, like stalling for the gpu.

The code block attached to this macro is run in a loop with doubling the interrupt timeout on each ioctl for every run, until no ioctl gets interrupted any more. The starting timeout is taken to be the signal delivery latency, measured at runtime. This way the any ioctls called from this code block should be exhaustively tested for all signal interruption paths.

Note that since this overloads the igt_ioctl(), this method is not useful for widespread signal injection, for example providing coverage of pagefaults. To interrupt everything, see igt_fork_signal_helper().

Parameters

enable

enable igt_ioctl interrupting or not

 

igt_until_timeout()

#define             igt_until_timeout(timeout)

Convenience macro loop to run the provided code block in a loop until the timeout has expired. Of course when an individual execution takes too long, the actual execution time could be a lot longer.

The code block will be executed at least once.

Parameters

timeout

timeout in seconds

 

igt_for_milliseconds()

#define             igt_for_milliseconds(t)

Convenience macro loop to run the provided code block in a loop until the target interval has expired. Of course when an individual execution takes too long, the actual execution time could be a lot longer.

The code block will be executed at least once.

Parameters

time

how long to run the loop in milliseconds

 

igt_exchange_int ()

void
igt_exchange_int (void *array,
                  unsigned  i,
                  unsigned  j);

Exchanges the two values at array indices i and j . Useful as an exchange function for igt_permute_array().

Parameters

array

pointer to the array of integers

 

i

first position

 

j

second position

 

igt_exchange_int64 ()

void
igt_exchange_int64 (void *array,
                    unsigned  i,
                    unsigned  j);

Exchanges the two values at array indices i and j . Useful as an exchange function for igt_permute_array().

Parameters

first position

 

j

second position

 

igt_permute_array ()

void
igt_permute_array (void *array,
                   unsigned  size,
                   void (*exchange_func) (void *array, unsigned i, unsigned j));

This function randomly permutes the array using random() as the PRNG source. The exchange_func function is called to exchange two elements in the array when needed.

Parameters

array

pointer to array

 

size

size of the array

 

exchange_func

function to exchange array elements

 

igt_progress ()

void
igt_progress (const char *header,
              uint64_t i,
              uint64_t total);

This function draws a progress indicator, which is useful for running long-winded tests manually on the console. To avoid spamming log files in automated runs the progress indicator is suppressed when not running on a terminal.

Parameters

header

header string to prepend to the progress indicator

 

i

work processed thus far

 

total

total amount of work

 

igt_print_activity ()

void
igt_print_activity (void);

Print a '.' to indicate activity. This is printed without a newline and only if output is to a terminal.


igt_check_boolean_env_var ()

bool
igt_check_boolean_env_var (const char *env_var,
                           bool default_value);

This function should be used to parse boolean environment variable options.

Parameters

env_var

environment variable name

 

default_value

default value for the environment variable

 

Returns

The boolean value of the environment variable env_var as decoded by atoi() if it is set and default_value if the variable is not set.


igt_aub_dump_enabled ()

bool
igt_aub_dump_enabled (void);

Returns

True if AUB dumping is enabled with IGT_DUMP_AUB=1 in the environment, false otherwise.


igt_system_suspend_autoresume ()

void
igt_system_suspend_autoresume (enum igt_suspend_state state,
                               enum igt_suspend_test test);

Execute a system suspend cycle targeting the given state optionally completing the cycle at the given test point and automaically wake up again. Waking up is either achieved using the RTC wake-up alarm for a full suspend cycle or a kernel timer for a suspend test cycle. The kernel timer delay for a test cycle can be configured by the suspend.pm_test_delay kernel parameter (5 sec by default).

SUSPEND_TEST_NONE specifies a full suspend cycle. The SUSPEND_TEST_FREEZER..SUSPEND_TEST_CORE test points can make it possible to collect error logs in case a full suspend cycle would prevent this by hanging the machine, or they can provide an idea of the faulty component by comparing fail/no-fail results at different test points.

This is very handy for implementing any kind of suspend/resume test.

Parameters

state

an igt_suspend_state, the target suspend state

 

test

an igt_suspend_test, test point at which to complete the suspend cycle

 

igt_set_autoresume_delay ()

void
igt_set_autoresume_delay (int delay_secs);

Sets how long we wait to resume the system after suspending it, using the suspend.pm_test_delay variable. On exit, the original delay value is restored.

Parameters

delay_secs

The delay in seconds before resuming the system

 

igt_get_autoresume_delay ()

int
igt_get_autoresume_delay (enum igt_suspend_state state);

Retrieves how long we wait to resume the system after suspending it. This can either be set through igt_set_autoresume_delay or be a default value that depends on the suspend state.

Parameters

state

an igt_suspend_state, the target suspend state

 

Returns

The autoresume delay, in seconds.


igt_get_memsleep_state ()

int
igt_get_memsleep_state (void);

Reads the value of /sys/power/mem_sleep and returns the current suspend state associated with 'mem'.

Returns : an igt_mem_sleep state, current suspend state associated with 'mem'.


igt_drop_root ()

void
igt_drop_root (void);

Drop root privileges and make sure it actually worked. Useful for tests which need to check security constraints. Note that this should only be called from manually forked processes, since the lack of root privileges will wreak havoc with the automatic cleanup handlers.


igt_debug_wait_for_keypress ()

void
igt_debug_wait_for_keypress (const char *var);

Waits for a key press when run interactively and when the corresponding debug var is set in the --interactive-debug=$var variable. Multiple keys can be specified as a comma-separated list or alternatively "all" if a wait should happen for all cases. Calling this function with "all" will assert.

When not connected to a terminal interactive_debug is ignored and execution immediately continues.

This is useful for display tests where under certain situation manual inspection of the display is useful. Or when running a testcase in the background.

Parameters

var

var lookup to to enable this wait

 

igt_debug_interactive_mode_check ()

void
igt_debug_interactive_mode_check (const char *var,
                                  const char *expected);

Waits for a key press when run interactively and when the corresponding debug var is set in the --interactive-debug=$var variable. Multiple vars can be specified as a comma-separated list or alternatively "all" if a wait should happen for all cases.

This is useful for display tests where under certain situation manual inspection of the display is useful. Or when running a testcase in the background.

When not connected to a terminal interactive_debug is ignored and execution immediately continues. For this reason by default this function returns true. It returns false only when N/n is pressed indicating the user isn't seeing what was expected.

Force test fail when N/n is pressed.

Parameters

var

var lookup to to enable this wait

 

expected

message to be printed as expected behaviour before wait for keys Y/n

Allocate size MB of memory and lock it into RAM. This releases any previously locked memory.

Use igt_unlock_mem to release the currently locked memory.

Parameters

size

the amount of memory to lock into RAM, in MB

 

igt_unlock_mem ()

void
igt_unlock_mem (void);

igt_wait()

#define             igt_wait(COND, timeout_ms, interval_ms)

Waits until COND evaluates to true or the timeout passes.

It is safe to call this macro if the signal helper is active. The only problem is that the usleep() calls will return early, making us evaluate COND too often, possibly eating valuable CPU cycles.

Parameters

COND

condition to wait

 

timeout_ms

timeout in milliseconds

 

interval_ms

amount of time we try to sleep between COND checks

 

Returns

True of COND evaluated to true, false otherwise.
