Michael Yang - May 9, 2019, 4:34 a.m.
If all the sync points were signaled in both fences a and b,
there was only one sync point in merged fence which is a_fence[0].
The Fence structure in android framework might be confused about
timestamp if there were any sync points which were signaled after
a_fence[0]. It might be more reasonable to use timestamp of last signaled
sync point to represent the merged fence.
The issue can be found from EGL extension ANDROID_get_frame_timestamps.
Sometimes the return value of EGL_READS_DONE_TIME_ANDROID is head of
the return value of EGL_RENDERING_COMPLETE_TIME_ANDROID.
That means display/composition had been completed before rendering
was completed that is incorrect.

Some discussion can be found at:

Hi,
I didn't get response since I previously sent this a month ago.
Could someone have a chance to look at it please?
Thanks.

If there is more than one fence, sync_file->fence is a fence_array and
its timestamp is what you want. If there is one fence, sync_file->fence
is a pointer to that fence, and naturally has the right timestamp.

In short, this should be handled by dma_fence_array_create() when given
a complete set of signaled fences, it too should inherit the signaled
status with the timestamp being taken from the last fence. It should
also be careful to inherit the error status.

Thanks Chris for the inputs. For this case, there will be only one fence
in sync_file->fence after doing sync_file_merge(). Regarding to the current
implementation, dma_fence_array_create() is not called as num_fences is equal
to 1. I was wondering do you suggest that we pass a complete set of signaled
fences to sync_file_set_fence() and handle it in dma_fence_array_create().
Thanks.

No, in the case there is only one fence, we just inherit its timestamp
along with its fence status. (A single fence is the degenerate case of
a fence array.)
