ATM / pppoe broken in 8.1?

Okay, I'm stumped. I've got this PCI DSL modem that I can't get working with 8.1. I've tried
google with pretty much no success. Obviously, the card doesn't do what I would like it to do.
Here's the dmesg:

The short of it is that the card is a 3Com HomeConnect ADSL Modem, and I am trying
to replace a Netgear DSL modem with a standard FreeBSD box, using pppoe and the above
mentioned card to connect to the Internets and also to run NAT. However, trying to
compile ATM support seems to throw some errors:

Code:
../../../netinet/if_atm.c: In function 'atm_rtrequest':

Google returns one page with the errors above, unfortunately, it's in Czech.

I'm on TKS in Germany. I don't know if it matters, but this is DSL service offered to
soldiers living on American posts. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you in advance!

Note the highlighted bits below, from your dmesg output:

patm0: <NICStAR (77222/77252) ATM adapter> port 0xde00-0xdeff mem 0xfe9fe000-0xfe9fefff,0xfa000000-0xfa3fffff
irq 21 at device 0.0 on pci1
patm0: unknown ATM-PHY chip 0
patm0: IDT77252 155MBit interface; idt77252 Rev. D; unknown PHY
patm0: 32K x 32 SRAM; 1024 connections
bus_dmamem_alloc failed to align memory properly.
patm0: [ITHREAD]

Looks like your ATM card is not supported.

3Com HomeConnect ADSL PCI Modem

I thought the same thing, but since it's a PCI DSL modem, I simply removed it and tried adding ATM support. Same error during kernel compile.

6 used to give me the same "error" in dmesg with an intel wi/fi card, but it still worked fine.

From the man page:

Code:
"The patm device driver supports ATM cards based on the IDT77252 chip"


From pciconf -lv on machine with card:

Code:
patm0@pci0:1:0:0:       class=0x020300 card=0x100f12b9 chip=0x0003111d rev=0x03 hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'Integrated Device Technology Inc.'
    device     = 'MICRO ABR SAR PCI ATM Controller (IDT77222/252)'
    class      = network
    subclass   = ATM


I guess I'm getting mixed messages here. Is it unreasonable to assume the card is supported, there's just something broken in NATM? This is the option that causes all the issues. Everything else compiles fine in the kernel. Once I add the NATM, it fails.

Seems like more than one problem.

The compile error is probably because a required module has been left out of the kernel config. You shouldn't need to include it in the kernel anyway, just kldload it as a module in /boot/loader.conf. FWIW, the module builds here on 8-stable.

The "unknown PHY" is more concerning. That could mean the computer can deal with the card just fine, but the media interface on the card won't work. But it's worth entering a PR, especially if you're willing to test code for developers.

Stranger things...

This issue gets stranger. I removed everything except device utopia and atm from the kernel conf file and recompiled. Now the device gets recognized as such:

Code:
inphy0: <i82562ET 10/100 media interface> PHY 1 on miibus0
inphy0:  10baseT, 10baseT-FDX, 100baseTX, 100baseTX-FDX, auto


No errors bus_dmamem_alloc like before. pciconf -lv shows:

Code:
none1@pci0:1:0:0:	class=0x020300 card=0x100f12b9 chip=0x0003111d rev=0x03 hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'Integrated Device Technology Inc.'
    device     = 'MICRO ABR SAR PCI ATM Controller (IDT77222/252)'
    class      = network
    subclass   = ATM


So it looks like an issue with patm when I add that to the kernel config file. Seems to have an issue with the card. Which is strange, because it's a 3com card, and this particular card was widely used just a decade ago. I know, I know. A decade in computer years is an eternity for humans...

And yes, I have no problem testing code for developers. Now that Iraq is over and A-stan is winding down, it's not like I have a whole lot to do these days...

Have you tried removing all those options from the kernel (or booting from GENERIC), and just loading the modules:
# kldload if_patm

This issue gets stranger. I removed everything except device utopia and atm from the kernel conf file and recompiled. Now the device gets recognized as such:

Code:
inphy0: <i82562ET 10/100 media interface> PHY 1 on miibus0
inphy0:  10baseT, 10baseT-FDX, 100baseTX, 100baseTX-FDX, auto

Isn't that your Ethernet board?

No errors bus_dmamem_alloc like before. pciconf -lv shows:

Code:
none1@pci0:1:0:0:	class=0x020300 card=0x100f12b9 chip=0x0003111d rev=0x03 hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'Integrated Device Technology Inc.'
    device     = 'MICRO ABR SAR PCI ATM Controller (IDT77222/252)'
    class      = network
    subclass   = ATM

Note the "none1"--no driver attached. Did you kldload patm before pciconf?

I haven;t tried kldload'ing the module in question off the generic kernel, so that's my next step.

inphy0 would appear to be the 3com PCI DSL modem. I'm only guessing, because fxp0 is the NIC card. My goal was to make this thing the firewall, and NAT my DSL service between the 3com DSL modem and the onboard NIC.

Net searches say 82562ET is a 10/100 Ethernet PHY, which would be on the fxp Ethernet card. Where it shows up in the dmesg agrees.

The patm module is built by default, so you shouldn't need GENERIC unless you've changed what modules are built. Just
# kldload patm
# pciconf -lv | grep -B4 ATM

You were spot on regarding inphy0, That's the fxp0 card. I saw the pty part and assumed it was the patm0 card (probably because of the "unknown PTY" error from before).

Rebuilt generic kernel and installed, no love. Tried 'kldload if_patm', get error 'kldload: can't load if_patm: No such file or directory'. Same with just 'kldload patm'. Not really sure what's going on at this point. From reliable sources, this card was supported under 4.x and 5.x...

Would these issues with the card cause the kernel build to fail with 'options NATM' enabled?

You're right, it should be if_patm. My 8.1-stable system has that file:
Code:
ls -l /boot/kernel/if_patm.ko
-r-xr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  90228 Sep  9 06:21 /boot/kernel/if_patm.ko


It's part of the normal build. I'd be surprised if it wasn't in 8.1-release. Check your /etc/make.conf and /etc/src.conf for settings that prevent it being built (MODULES_OVERRIDE or such). You can build it manually if you have the source installed:
# cd /usr/src/sys/modules/patm; make; make install

Would these issues with the card cause the kernel build to fail with 'options NATM' enabled?

Don't know...
