Description LunarG 2018-08-28 16:23:18 UTC
Introduced in the 18.1 branch (commit 92eb5bbc68d732463e9afb2373c9bd47e5ee0864), running Sascha Willem's Multisampling demo (https://github.com/SaschaWillems/Vulkan) will produce a black background where it should be white. 

Mesa versions from 18.0 produces the correct results. 

Skylake CPU (530 graphics)

Mesa 18.1, Ubuntu 16.04
Using Vkreplay from LunarG's SDK

Quick update on this: in theory we should just revert that patch, because it's wrong, and even if we "fix" it by properly skipping the update of the clear color only during fast clears, we would only be saving a couple MI_MEM_COPY operations. It's probably better to just keep the code simpler and remove that logic.

However, while trying to revert it, I found that it regresses Haswell, so I'm debugging that now.
Comment 2 Jason Ekstrand 2018-08-29 00:58:19 UTC
Ugh... I reviewed that patch.  Now that I look at it in light of this, it's obviously wrong.  We also need inline clear colors for the source of MSAA resolves and maybe some other cases.  Rafael, do you remember why you did this?  Was it just to save some MI commands or did it have some deeper purpose?
Comment 3 Rafael Antognolli 2018-08-29 16:08:26 UTC
I don't remember for sure, but I think it was just to save the MI commands. That's the only thing I can remember now.

Looks like we hit this bug: https://github.com/vulkano-rs/vulkano/issues/1123
Has there been any progress?
Comment 5 mindtree 2019-01-04 03:20:00 UTC
It seems I'm also running into this via vulkano and I'm not yet sure of a workaround for MSAA. I'm also curious whether or not there has been any progress?
Comment 6 Jason Ekstrand 2019-01-04 19:15:52 UTC
Sorry for letting this one slip so long.  I've got a fix on the mailing list:


It would be awesome if someone could confirm this fixes vulkano.

This is fixed by the following commit now in master:

    intel/blorp: Be more conservative about copying clear colors
    In 92eb5bbc68d7324 we attempted to avoid copying clear colors whenever
    we weren't doing a resolve.  However, this broke MSAA resolves because
    we need the clear color in the source.  This patch makes blorp much more
    conservative such that it only avoids the clear color copy if either
    aux_usage == NONE or it's explicitly doing a fast-clear.
    Fixes: 92eb5bbc68d7 "intel/blorp: Only copy clear color when doing..."

Sorry it took so long. :-(
Comment 8 Mark Janes 2019-01-07 19:23:08 UTC
the fix for this bug regresses the following crucible test on haswell:


Since haswell support is partial, this regression is not something that should block a mesa release.
