diana_coman: BingoBoingo, thanks! confirmed back on + 1 fg available; unfortunately the simple test from smg_rsa (./tests 11 11 ) still hangs
diana_coman: I start suspecting it's maybe something to do with short+frequent reads as weirdly enough tests that read 4096 bytes seem... fine
diana_coman: well, uhm, scratch that, I just got one of those stuck too, lol; it took longer to get stuck, nothing else
asciilifeform: diana_coman: i've built eucrypt and replicated your hang
diana_coman: asciilifeform, any clue as to cause?
diana_coman: on what machine is this?
asciilifeform: not discovered culprit yet, literally 5min ago finished pressing & building ( used ave1's gcc , for completeness )
diana_coman: aha; good to know at least it's not *just* that machine; might be worth to try replicating the dd hang as well , although by now I expect it will happen
asciilifeform: diana_coman: what was the exact process for dd hang ?
asciilifeform: ( fwiw i've dd's from dulap's FGs previously, with 0 signs of any problem )
asciilifeform: this box is running traditional gentoo, however, it more closely resembles primary s.mg machine than the test box
diana_coman: machine with 2 fgs; reboot without init of any fgs; stty on only one fg; dd on that fg
diana_coman: the first time it usually hangs
diana_coman: dd seems to be more resilient but I suspect it's mainly because it's not that sort of little&frequent
diana_coman: i.e. if you run the eucrypt tests 0 or 1 that read more they tend to take longer to get to the hang (although they still do eventually)
diana_coman: fwiw same tests of eucrypt ran perfectly fine on all machines I have around here with fgs
asciilifeform: hm, over here dd ( with only 1 FG init'd ) is working correctly
asciilifeform: eucrypt's test reliably hangs, however, ~every other run
asciilifeform: 1048576 bytes (1.0 MB, 1.0 MiB) copied, 151.838 s, 6.9 kB/s <<
asciilifeform: ^ dd
diana_coman: a bit slow though?
asciilifeform: not really, the nominal production is 7
diana_coman: anyways, if you find something the matter specifically with eucrypt code, I'd be quite happy really since it's easiest to fix tbh
asciilifeform: ( evidently the dc has pretty good cooling )
diana_coman: hm, I usually get that above 7, closer to 8
asciilifeform: it's not a constant rate, 7 is the empirical avg., and depends on environmental temp
diana_coman: anyways, dd hangs *sometimes*, harder to pin down ; ftr I DID go and read the dd code too but I can't say I'm any wiser as to why/how it is more resilient
asciilifeform: well the 1 obvious diff, is that it defaults to 512byte blocks
asciilifeform: and reads from buffered tty
diana_coman: hence my diana_coman> dd seems to be more resilient but I suspect it's mainly because it's not that sort of little&frequent
diana_coman: but a. WHY don't I have same trouble on any of the machines here b. WHY does it hang anyway c. wtf do I do
asciilifeform: diana_coman: ok, finally managed to get a stuck dd
asciilifeform: i suspect an oddity with the linux tty subsystem. the Right Thing solution would be to find it. the alternative, ugly solution, is 1) 512 byte buffered reads 2) with timeout .
asciilifeform: so far can't think of a third.
asciilifeform: fwiw dd never stuck midway, only on opening tty.
asciilifeform: 0 bytes copied, 99.8535 s, 0.0 kB/s
asciilifeform: ^ 1 run
asciilifeform: 1048576 bytes (1.0 MB, 1.0 MiB) copied, 150.483 s, 7.0 kB/s
asciilifeform: ^ subsequent
asciilifeform: ( the former, ctrl-c'd )
asciilifeform: note that FG outputs not only random bytes, but at random ~rate~ . currently i wonder if we've unearthed an 'impedence mismatch' in linux tty.
asciilifeform: no other device does the random ~rate~ thing.
asciilifeform: possibly asciilifeform is doomed to write the FG-reading daemon after all.
asciilifeform: ( observe, if tty ~does~ successfully open, can read 4evah, i had one dd going for 6 months without problem )
diana_coman: <asciilifeform> i suspect an oddity with the linux tty subsystem. the Right Thing solution would be to find it. the alternative, ugly solution, is 1) 512 byte buffered reads 2) with timeout . -> this is pretty much my current understanding as well
diana_coman: but I'm not comfortable with not knowing wtf in there because it has the potential to blow up very nastily indeed
diana_coman: fwiw eucrypt always gets stuck on the actual "read("
asciilifeform: diana_coman: i'ma have to do a detailed dig in re the linux tty thing. but this could take a while, and no guarantee of finding culprit in the 100s of MB of open sores liquishit. so you will need the buffer+timeout thing, i suspect.
asciilifeform: ( oughta log the timeouts )
diana_coman: I'm going to dig around a bit more too to see if I can find any more clues of sorts
diana_coman: but yes, this is certainly not going to get solved in 1-2 days by the looks of it
asciilifeform: the ideal ugly-an'-reliable pill is prolly a demon that reads both FG 24/7 and alarms if rate is substantially below rated
diana_coman: myeah, as battlefield solution that might be the direction to take
asciilifeform: i ~would~ prefer a sanely-behaving OS. unfortunately i dun have one up my sleeve.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: lulzily, turns out that our horror show is not unknown, https://archive.fo/kRfZy ( spoiler: none of the proposed pills, have any effect

asciilifeform: pc is the hardcore tard reservation.

a111: Logged on 2014-02-21 03:28 asciilifeform: usb is a highly-stateful protocol with a book-length standard
asciilifeform: usb is evil in 9000 ways. not only the ridiculous complexity, which makes it impractical to use with ~simple~ microcontrollers, msdos boxen, etc. but also the fact that it is impossible to make a ~transmit only~ (or , for that matter, receive-only) usb device, they are mandatorily stateful. which is the fundamental reason why asciilifeform refused to put a usb chip on FG proper.
asciilifeform: FG is transmit-only. there is literally nothing the attached pc can do ~to~ it, other than cycle the +5 supply ( and even this, strictly if the +5 supply is tied to the pc's )
asciilifeform: thing eats 8ma, could easily run off, e.g., solar cell in a well-lit room.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: usb1 switchover also confirmed to cure log barfola.
asciilifeform: diana_coman, mircea_popescu lemme know if the given cure, is curative. ( no change to diana_coman's coad is needed )
asciilifeform: incidentally, there is also a potential iron cure, currently FG at pizarro are attached to miniature usb2 hubs. ( asciilifeform was not able to source pure usb1 hubs, but potentially these exist somewhere. )

diana_coman: after reading around on this mess with the usb speeds, the summary + questions would be: 1. the dwc_otg seems actually specific to raspberry pi so I don't see how it's directly useful atm; am I missing something? 2. the manual/runtime pill so far relies on the companion mechanism to force a USB port down from "high speed" to "full speed" so basically from ehci to uhci/ohci; wouldn't it make more sense to blacklist ehci, xhci and whatever
diana_coman: other "improved" xxxxhci and stick with uhci/ohci?
diana_coman: asciilifeform, perhaps ^
diana_coman: trinque, esp re why ehci if you can shed some light ^
asciilifeform: diana_coman: seems that you're right re the flag, it is specific to a nonstandard kernel
asciilifeform: building a kernel without xhci would almost certainly do the job tho
diana_coman: I'm actively looking for any reason why xhci should be allowed in
asciilifeform: diana_coman: on server ? can't think of any, aside from 'backups to/from external drives'
asciilifeform: ( i can't afford it on dulap, because it also doubles as reimaging station for rockchippen , but s.mg prolly can safely say goodbye to usb3 )
asciilifeform: err, usb2
asciilifeform: ( 3 by implication also )
asciilifeform: iirc ehci == usb2 , xhci == usb3
diana_coman: well yes, and 10 or whatever they come up with next
asciilifeform: diana_coman: 'nexts' wouldn't affect the existing iron tho.
asciilifeform: one type of existing machine where we can't afford to lose usb3 is the rockchip, it would be quite unusable without it ( main disk is solely usb3 )
diana_coman: so hm, on rockchip then FG are actually usable only with manual downgrade of usb port ?
asciilifeform: diana_coman: problem dun seem to exist on my desk rockchip. ( and in the end we'll move the rk FGs over to the convenient built-in TTL serialports )
asciilifeform: diana_coman: re usb1 forcing, i was thinking the proper pill might be to write a shell thing that parses output of lsusb -t and does the correct magics ; rather than modded kernel
diana_coman: ah, built-in ttl serialports sounds good, yes; re problem dun seem to exist, mhm, I'd rather expect it would pop up sooner or later if used intensively in this little&frequent style
asciilifeform: ( if diana_coman wants to take a crack at this, worx, otherwise asciilifeform will do it later this wk )
diana_coman: and yes, otherwise I was thinking that a script can't be all that difficult to write for it too
asciilifeform: really a sed/awk 1liner
diana_coman: but now I admit I got angry with ehci after all of today's barfing on the topic
asciilifeform: for all the usb2/3 suckage, it sadly remains the only means to connect fast external disks to pc.
