SubjectCONFIG_PREEMPT_RT local_softirq_pending warning when ISR blocks
Hi,

I'm seeing "NOHZ: local_softirq_pending" warnings with 3.14.31-rt28
(3.14.3-rt4 too). They're mostly "NOHZ: local_softirq_pending 08"
(NET_RX) but they happen occasionally for other softirqs too (0c aka
NET_RX and NET_TX is second-most common). CONFIG_PREEMPT_RT_FULL and
CONFIG_NO_HZ_FULL(_ALL) are enabled. Heavy load on a CAN card
(sja1000) consistently triggers the messages, but they also happen
occasionally without explicitly trying to stress the system.

I got a trace showing a threaded ISR handler blocking on an rt_mutex
after raising a softirq, which results in the CPU going idle with the
softirq still pending because irq_exit() hasn't happened yet. I don't
know whether the softirq should somehow be getting run at that point,
the message is spurious in this situation, or maybe there's some other
reason this should never happen.

The task holding the rt_mutex was preempted by another ISR handler at
the same priority as the one which has the problem. I'm not quite
sure, but i think it might have been running a softirq at the time it
got preempted if that makes any difference.

Here's the parts of the trace that look relevant, split up between the
2 interesting CPUs (both hyperthreads of 1 of the 2 cores in the
system). If anybody can think of any other information that would be
useful, please do ask.

Beforehand, 000 is spending most of its time in interrupts, but bash
is doing something related to memory management on it in between.

I don't see it unlocking the problematic mutex before the trace ends.

The relevant part for 001 starts while it's running the can1 ISR.

My tracing_off() call is in softirq_check_pending_idle, so that's it.

Thanks,
