Hi Guix,

In trying to update AMD's OpenCL stuff (ROCm) in Guix to the latest version, I found that CONFIG_HSA_AMD is not set in our kernel config which I think might be needed (for HSA, most visibly having a /dev/kfd if I'm understanding). I see it was set to 'm' in previous versions, like 4.19, but at some point has been unset.

Does anyone know why this was changed or have any reason not to set it in our kernel config?

I've tried building the kernel with this configuration change and it went fine, but haven't been able to properly test it just yet.

John

I can confirm setting CONFIG_HSA_AMD=y (setting it to 'm' didn't seem to work for me) made /dev/kfd available and the OpenCL ROCm work, including making OpenCL available to Darktable. Note that I tested this on a non linux-libre kernel (what I use) which may or may not be required for OpenCL on some hardware. This is on x86-64.

Are there any objections to enabling this option in our kernel config?

Now that ROCm has been updated in #55948, I tested again if I needed this kernel config change. Indeed, without CONFIG_HSA_AMD I do not get OpenCL with ROCm (darktable-cltest fails, as does rocminfo). I again set this configuration option and it works.

Any obstacles to (re)enabling this configuration option?

Thanks!
John
