Subject[PATCH 4.8 041/125] scsi: cxlflash: Remove the device cleanly in the system shutdown path
4.8-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Uma Krishnan <>

commit babf985d1e1b0677cb264acd01319d2b9c8f4327 upstream.

Commit 704c4b0ddc03 ("cxlflash: Shutdown notify support for CXL Flash
cards") was recently introduced to notify the AFU when a system is going
down. Due to the position of the cxlflash driver in the device stack,
cxlflash devices are _always_ removed during a reboot/shutdown. This can
lead to a crash if the cxlflash shutdown hook is invoked _after_ the
shutdown hook for the owning virtual PHB. Furthermore, the current
implementation of shutdown/remove hooks for cxlflash are not tolerant to
being invoked when the device is not enabled. This can also lead to a
crash in situations where the remove hook is invoked after the device
has been removed via the vPHBs shutdown hook. An example of this
scenario would be an EEH reset failure while a reboot/shutdown is in

To solve both problems, the shutdown hook for cxlflash is updated to
simply remove the device. This path already includes the AFU
notification and thus this solution will continue to perform the
original intent. At the same time, the remove hook is updated to protect
against being called when the device is not enabled.
