* rslib: Fix remaining decoder flawsFerdinand Blomqvist2019-06-261-20/+68
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | The decoder is flawed in the following ways: - The decoder sometimes fails silently, i.e. it announces success but returns a word that is not a codeword. - The return value of the decoder is incoherent with respect to how fixed erasures are counted. If the word to be decoded is a codeword, then the decoder always returns zero even if some erasures are given. On the other hand, if the word to be decoded contains errors, then the number of erasures is always included in the count of corrected symbols. So the decoder handles erasures without symbol corruption inconsistently. This inconsistency probably doesn't affect anyone using the decoder, but it is inconsistent with the documentation. - The error positions returned in eras_pos include all erasures, but the corrections are only set in the correction buffer if there actually is a symbol error. So if there are erasures without symbol corruption, then the correction buffer will contain errors (unless initialized to zero before calling the decoder) or some values will be unset (if the correction buffer is uninitialized). - When correcting data in-place the decoder does not correct errors in the parity. On the other hand, when returning the errors in correction buffers, errors in the parity are included. The respective fixed are: - The syndrome of a codeword is always zero, and the syndrome is linear, .i.e, S(x+e) = S(x) + S(e). So compute the syndrome for the error and check whether it equals the syndrome of the received word. If it does, then we have decoded to a valid codeword, otherwise we know that we have an uncorrectable error. Fortunately, some unrecoverable error conditions can be detected earlier in the decoding, which saves some processing power. - Simply count and return the number of symbols actually corrected. - Make sure to only return positions where symbols were corrected. - Also fix errors in parity when correcting in-place. Another option would be to completely disregard errors in the parity, but then the interface makes it impossible to write tests that test for silent failures. Other changes: - Only fill the correction buffer and error position buffer if both of them are provided. Otherwise correct in place. Previously the error position buffer was always populated with the positions of the corrected errors, irrespective of whether a correction buffer was supplied or not. The rationale for this change is that there seems to be two use cases for the decoder; correct in-place or use the correction buffers. The caller does not need the positions of the corrected errors when in-place correction is used. If in-place correction is not used, then both the correction buffer and error position buffer need to be populated.

* rslib: Fix decoding of shortened codesFerdinand Blomqvist2019-06-261-2/+2
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | The decoding of shortenend codes is broken. It only works as expected if there are no erasures. When decoding with erasures, Lambda (the error and erasure locator polynomial) is initialized from the given erasure positions. The pad parameter is not accounted for by the initialisation code, and hence Lambda is initialized from incorrect erasure positions. The fix is to adjust the erasure positions by the supplied pad.

* rslib: Add tests for the encoder and decoderFerdinand Blomqvist2019-06-262-1/+519
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | A Reed-Solomon code with minimum distance d can correct any error and erasure pattern that satisfies 2 * #error + #erasures < d. If the error correction capacity is exceeded, then correct decoding cannot be guaranteed. The decoder must, however, return a valid codeword or report failure. There are two main tests: - Check for correct behaviour up to the error correction capacity - Check for correct behaviour beyond error corrupted capacity Both tests are simple: 1. Generate random data 2. Encode data with the chosen code 3. Add errors and erasures to data 4. Decode the corrupted word 5. Check for correct behaviour When testing up to capacity we test for: - Correct decoding - Correct return value (i.e. the number of corrected symbols) - That the returned error positions are correct There are two kinds of erasures; the erased symbol can be corrupted or not. When counting the number of corrected symbols, erasures without symbol corruption should not be counted. Similarly, the returned error positions should only include positions where a correction is necessary. We run the up to capacity tests for three different interfaces of decode_rs: - Use the correction buffers - Use the correction buffers with syndromes provided by the caller - Error correction in place (does not check the error positions) When testing beyond capacity test for silent failures. A silent failure is when the decoder returns success but the returned word is not a valid codeword. There are a couple of options for the tests: - Verbosity. - Whether to test for correct behaviour beyond capacity. Default is to test beyond capacity. - Whether to allow erasures without symbol corruption. Defaults to yes. Note that the tests take a couple of minutes to complete.

* rslib: Allocate decoder buffers to avoid VLAsThomas Gleixner2018-04-242-8/+43
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | To get rid of the variable length arrays on stack in the RS decoder it's necessary to allocate the decoder buffers per control structure instance. All usage sites have been checked for potential parallel decoder usage and fixed where necessary. Kees confirmed that the pstore decoding is strictly single threaded so there should be no surprises. Allocate them in the rs control structure sized depending on the number of roots for the chosen codec and adapt the decoder code to make use of them. Document the fact that decode operations based on a particular rs control instance cannot run in parallel and the caller has to ensure that as it's not possible to provide a proper locking construct which fits all use cases.

* rslib: Split rs control structThomas Gleixner2018-04-243-58/+79
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | The decoder library uses variable length arrays on stack. To get rid of them it would be simple to allocate fixed length arrays on stack, but those might become rather large. The other solution is to allocate the buffers in the rs control structure, but this cannot be done as long as the structure can be shared by several users. Sharing is desired because the RS polynom tables are large and initialization is time consuming. To solve this split the codec information out of the control structure and have a pointer to a shared codec in it. Instantiate the control structure for each user, create a new codec if no shareable is avaiable yet. Adjust all affected usage sites to the new scheme. This allows to add per instance decoder buffers to the control structure later on.

| | | | | | | | | | For the CAFÉ NAND controller, we need to support non-canonical representations of the Galois field. Allow the caller to provide its own function for generating the field, and CAFÉ can use rslib instead of its own implementation.

Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
