Bug Description

Impact:

There is a kernel hang in 4.4.y if the vc4 driver is enabled, and another program opens /dev/fb0 to display an image.

Fix:

Apply the attached patch and recompile the kernel.

How to test:

Enable the gpu hardware acceleration by loading the vc4 overlay:

config.txt:
...
dtoverlay=vc4-kms-v3d
...

reboot and check that vc4 was activated:

$ dmesg | grep vc4

...
[ 15.274385] vc4-drm soc:gpu: bound 3f902000.hdmi (ops vc4_hdmi_ops [vc4])
[ 15.274660] vc4_dsi 3f700000.dsi: DSI not set up by firmware.
[ 15.274753] vc4-drm soc:gpu: bound 3f700000.dsi (ops vc4_dsi_ops [vc4])
[ 15.274873] vc4-drm soc:gpu: bound 3f400000.hvs (ops vc4_hvs_ops [vc4])
[ 15.275178] vc4-drm soc:gpu: bound 3f206000.pixelvalve (ops vc4_crtc_ops [vc4])
[ 15.275407] vc4-drm soc:gpu: bound 3f207000.pixelvalve (ops vc4_crtc_ops [vc4])
[ 15.275643] vc4-drm soc:gpu: bound 3f807000.pixelvalve (ops vc4_crtc_ops [vc4])
[ 15.275818] vc4-drm soc:gpu: bound 3fc00000.v3d (ops vc4_v3d_ops [vc4])
[ 15.403354] vc4-drm soc:gpu: fb0: frame buffer device
...

then download and compile psplash:

$ git clone git://git.yoctoproject.org/psplash
$ cd psplash
$ autoreconf --install
$ ./configure
$ make
$ sudo ./psplash

here the board should hang, pull the plug to get it back.
Now install the patched kernel, and execute psplash again - the board will be fine, and a bitmap will be displayed on hdmi, ctrl+c to exit psplash.

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-xenial' to 'verification-done-xenial'. If the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-xenial' to 'verification-failed-xenial'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!
