Using spiffs and FreeRTOS tick hook causes crash

Postby newsettler_AI » Mon Dec 24, 2018 5:29 pm

Hi.

In my project I'm using SPIFFS and some FreeRTOS tasks. One of this tasks (its LCD library) uses callback for ticks:

https://github.com/espressif/esp-idf/bl ... ooks.h#L90

Problem: each tasks works fine separatly. But when I'm trying use both I got crash:

Code: Select all

Rebooting...
FreeRTOS ticks callback

Code: Select all

static void callback_tick_task(void)
{
    custom_tick_inc(portTICK_RATE_MS);
}
Task that uses this callback

Code: Select all

void my_1_task(void* arg)
{
    . . . 
    esp_register_freertos_tick_hook(callback_tick_task);
  
    while(1)
    {
       vTaskDelay(1);
       task_1_handler();
    }
}
Task that reads text files from spiffs image

Code: Select all

void my_2_task (void *arg)
{
    uint32_t cnt = 0;

    while(1)
    {
        cnt++;

        if(cnt > 2) // each 2 seconds switch file
        {
            load_file_from_spiffs(my_files[file_id]);

            file_id++;
            
            cnt = 0;
            
            //just a loop for loading files
            if(file_id >=  4)  file_id = 0;
            
        }
        vTaskDelay(1000);
    }
}

Also I have read this article:

https://docs.espressif.com/projects/esp ... n-accessed

Looks like reason of crash is because task_2 (reading file) disables others tasks until flash operations are in progress.
But I'm not sure where and how apply recommended attribute ESP_INTR_FLAG_IRAM (I suppose I have apply it to callback_tick_task function?).

This is correct, callback_tick_task, custom_tick_inc and other functions called from the tick hook need to be placed into IRAM using IRAM_ATTR attribute (declared in esp_attr.h).

ESP_igrr, thanks a lot !

I tried apply IRAM_ATTR only for callback itself, but no success.

Now I added this attibutes to all functions in this callback aswell and it works fine :)
