PostPosted: Mon Aug 29, 2016 4:17 pm    Post subject: [solved] gentoo-sources 4.7.2 lost acpi_events after upgrade Reply with quote

I upgraded recently from 4.6.(0/1/2/3) gentoo-sources to 4.7.2 gentoo-sources

Plus:
*) Rf kill key works now (Software Wlan enable / disable key)

Cons:
*) XF86KbdBrightnessUp key does not generate a proper event
*) XF86KbdBrightnessDown key does not generate a proper event
*) XF86TouchpadToggle key does not generate a proper event
*) no backlight leds anymore => /sys/class/leds/asus\:\:kbd_backlight/brightness

Only difference is the loaded kernel.


Code:
ASUS-G75VW roman # acpi_listen
button/sleep SBTN 00000080 00000000
button/sleep PNP0C0E:00 00000080 00000001

button/sleep PNP0C0E:00 00000080 00000002
 PNP0C14:00 000000ff 00000000
 PNP0C14:00 000000ff 00000000
pppppppbutton/mute MUTE 00000080 00000000 K

button/volumedown VOLDN 00000080 00000000 K
button/volumeup VOLUP 00000080 00000000 K
^C


First 4 rows are for the sleep button, pressed twice.
Than f3 (brightness up keyboard => should be XF86KbdBrightnessUp) is PNP0C14:00 000000ff 00000000
than f4 (brightness down keyboard => should be XF86KbdBrightnessDown) is PNP0C14:00 000000ff 00000000

f5/f6/f7/f8 /f9 => generates p character or changes screen output as it should be
f10 => mute
f11 => speaker volume down
f12 => Speaker volume up



part of /var/log/messages => tail -f /var/log/messages

Shows sleep button generates events / rf kill key works in this kernel, mute / speaker volume up and down works

--

my i3wm config contained the following lines, which explains that these keys worked and were utilized to change keyboard backlight / toggle the touchpad functionality. I just post it here to show which events I expect / which events were generated in past kernels: XF86TouchpadToggle, XF86KbdBrightnessUp, XF86KbdBrightnessDown

Quote:

#toggle the touchpad
bindsym XF86TouchpadToggle exec " if [ $(synclient -l | grep TouchpadOff | awk '{print $3}') == 1 ] ; then synclient touchpadoff=0; else synclient touchpadoff=1; fi "


#set backlight of the keyboard
#values 1,2,3 are allowed, and 0 for off. i need to code something
bindsym XF86KbdBrightnessUp exec "echo 2 > /sys/class/leds/asus\:\:kbd_backlight/brightness"
bindsym XF86KbdBrightnessDown exec "echo 0 > /sys/class/leds/asus\:\:kbd_backlight/brightness"



I always upgrade my kernels with make oldconfig and than build the kernel. With a few modifications. There were some options missing which I tried to readd recently but nope.

Current Kernel config https://paste.pound-python.org/show/QMQtnAl1H5oGYehA4iRN/

Previous kernel configs should be identical basically with those posts on bugs.kernel.org or forums.gentoo.org because I always do make oldconfig before building the kernel. If desired I can upload 4.6.x kernel config

Past posts regarding this:
-----------------------------------
my post on kernel.org bugzilla: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=106901
my post on forums.gentoo.org regarding acpi keys https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-1030552-start-0.html

It*s a known issue that wifi key / brightness keys did not generate any events with past kernels. Data in above posts.



partly off topic: someone else, older kernel https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=67681

I am well aware that the kernel config needs improvement, too many modules, too many stuff enabled which I do not need for a laptop.

The gentoo "overlay" has removed all 4.6 kernels except one 4.6 kernel in the vanilla-sources, so staying at 4.6 is not an option.

---

Questions:

Any idea on how to get the naming functionaliy back of those acpi events?

I have no idea which option is missing / which breaks functionality?

[edit 2] 2016-09-06 add *) no backlight leds anymore => /sys/class/leds/asus\:\:kbd_backlight/brightness

The issue here is that i do not get those proper acpi events with the new kernel 4.7.2

I want XF86KbdBrightnessUp, XF86KbdBrightnessUp, XF86TouchpadToggle events back like 4.6.x kernels did.

I assume its a small issue in the configs. I want to ask here before I bug the kernel.org guys. The loss of functionality for the touchpad toggle event is really a bugger

I did search a bit already. Sadly i am a bit too busy recently to invest more time into this issue

Add data to first post

Created kernel.org bug https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=156211

I am working on correcting my kernel.config and to slim down the kernel. The keyboard leds are gone now too, which was not that obvious when i created the topic

An Asus laptop? Try booting with acpi_osi=Linux on the kernel cmdline and see if it behaves itself. (You shouldn't *need* to do this, but... Asus)

CONFIG_HID_ASUS: Asus

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_HID_ASUS:

prompt: Asus
type: tristate
depends on: CONFIG_I2C_HID
defined in drivers/hid/Kconfig
found in Linux kernels: 4.7, 4.8-rc+HEAD
modules built: hid-asus


It seems a new kernel option.

Is this ASUS box an EeePC? If so, there's a driver selected by CONFIG_EEEPC_LAPTOP that's an alternative to CONFIG_ASUS_LAPTOP. My aged EeePC 1000HE needs the former, and misbehaves with the latter.

The Hardware is an ASUS G75VW Laptop

The config option "CONFIG_HID_ASUS: Asus " does exactly nothing here.

I am grateful that the kernel guys gave me some reply. I tried to answer them.

Only thing =>

Could you do a git bisect for this?


When someone has an idea on how to achieve this ...

Its obvious its about the git tool. I may find time this weekend to look into this.

A bit off topic / generic opinion:

Regardless of brand and model, I saw a lot of laptops with lost functinality. I supose it happend with those UEFI crap. I am not fond of UEFI and I do not see any benefit for UEFI. I purchased my first laptop in year 1996, now its 2016. before uefi everything was working in any operating system, except nvidia binary driver blob issues with the linux kernel which was easily patchable from an arch linux post, which I did myself for years. wrong memory bars. My issue is a generic issue which happens on any ASUS laptop. I have read the identical issue on several kernel.org posts and other linux support / discussion forums. laptops onwned ACER Pentium 3; TArga MT-32 AMD CPU; MSI CR700 T3000 CPU; ASUS G70sg t9500 cpu; ASUS K70; now only bugos one with uefi ASUS g75vw. A long list of notebooks and only one has issue and that one has UEFI. Many asus and other brands for a sample over the years

I appear to be having the same problem on the Lenovo E550 using the thinkpad_acpi kernel driver.
I'm not sure about the acpi events, but my buttons still work. Its just the LED indicators that aren't working.
Recompiled my kernel over 10 times, wondering what changes I did caused it xD.

Added data and answered questions on bugs.kernel.org.

My ls listening motivated me to look into those ASUS_WM symbols which I changed the following settings in kernel 4.7.2:

HOTPLUG_PCI from N to Y
HOTPLUG_PCI_ACPI from N to Y
ASUS_WMI from N to M (yes not available, something set as module)
ASUS_NB_WMI from N to M (yes not available, something set as module)

F3 + F4, keyboard backlight works now with kernel 4.7.2
F9 touchpad toggle works now.

I tried to read out the key combos with xev tool, but I do not see the ACPI names there. I will ask on forums.gentoo.org.


Time for a new topic to ask on how to read out properly those ACPI events. I know they are working by its effects, but I do not see them in acpi_listen or xev tool

I created a new topic, to keep questions separated: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-7963586.html#7963586

Brightness increase / decrease keys are still broken

I unmerged already those older gentoo-sources. I will boot up my backup SSD, and will go instantly in /usr/src/linux and make menuconfig and check out those symbols if they are set or not. I will do this probably this weekend after I made my backup. This is the only way to verify if those symbols were really not set or If I have accidenctially / for some reason those symbols were unset. FActs matter therefore I do not see any other means to verify this.

ASUS_NB_WMI from N to M (yes not available, something set as module)

--

F3 + F4, keyboard backlight works now with kernel 4.7.2
F9 touchpad toggle works now.

I tried to read out the key combos with xev tool, but I do not see the ACPI names there. I will ask on forums.gentoo.org.


I've set:
HOTPLUG_PCI from N to Y
HOTPLUG_PCI_ACPI from N to Y
and
THINKPAD_ACPI from Y to M

but the LED indicators still seem to be not working. :/

I have to narrow it down if the config optinos were lost in the upgrade process from 4.6.3 to 4.7.2

As some options are greyed out, means they are hidden until you enable all (pre-)requisites, it's not that easy to hunt down those.

@ShanaXXII => you also need to set as module or include any notebook leds, there are several options. Testing with a livecd may also show if any livecd provides this functinality. E.g. linux mint, fedora-core workstation provide live-cds with a full fleged X-server with tools. you may use drivedroid on your rooted smartphone and boot u those livecds when your smartphone is conneced with the usb data cable to your computer.

[solved]

For some reason the config options mentioned above exists in kernel 4.6.3.

I unmerged gentoo-sources 4.6.3. removed the folder. Emerged gentoo-sources 4.6.3. Checked that there is no config file. Moved the config from the kernel to the directory ... zcat /proc/config.gz > .config
checked with nano the config if the custom naming is identical with the booted kernel.

Checked kernel option in question if they are enabled.

I didn't have to set any led drivers before. :/
Only the thinkpad_acpi.
Did something change?

FWIW, my thinkpad x1 carbon leds don't work and
never did in gentoo (starting with 4.5)

they do work in ubuntu (4.4 kernel)

However, I also have a thinkpad 440S and its leds
do work in 4.7 kernel in gentoo ...

thinkpad_acpi.c may need some patching :(

When you have a regression with those leds and broken functionality you may open a bug. at bugs.kernel.org when you have a point to see it ..
