skiboot-5.1.21 was released on Tuesday 19th September 2017.

skiboot-5.1.21 is the 22nd stable release of 5.1, it follows skiboot-5.1.20 (which was released 18th August 2017).

This release contains one backported bug fix to the 5.1.x series.

Changes are:

  • FSP: Add check to detect FSP Reset/Reload inside fsp_sync_msg()

    During FSP Reset/Reload we move outstanding MBOX messages from msgq to rr_queue including inflight message (fsp_reset_cmdclass()). But we are not resetting inflight message state.

    In extreme corner case where we sent message to FSP via fsp_sync_msg() path and FSP Reset/Reload happens before getting respose from FSP, then we will endup waiting in fsp_sync_msg() until everything becomes normal.

    This patch adds fsp_in_rr() check to fsp_sync_msg() and return error to caller if FSP is in R/R.
