SubjectRe: [PATCH v2] Bluetooth: hci_ldisc: Allow sleeping while proto locks are held.
From
Date
Hi Ronald,

> Commit dec2c92880cc5435381d50e3045ef018a762a917 ("Bluetooth: hci_ldisc:
> Use rwlocking to avoid closing proto races") introduced locks in
> hci_ldisc that are held while calling the proto functions. These locks
> are rwlock's, and hence do not allow sleeping while they are held.
> However, the proto functions that hci_bcm registers use mutexes and
> hence need to be able to sleep.
>
> In more detail: hci_uart_tty_receive() and hci_uart_dequeue() both
> acquire the rwlock, after which they call proto->recv() and
> proto->dequeue(), respectively. In the case of hci_bcm these point to
> bcm_recv() and bcm_dequeue(). The latter both acquire the
> bcm_device_lock, which is a mutex, so doing so results in a call to
> might_sleep(). But since we're holding a rwlock in hci_ldisc, that
> results in the following BUG (this for the dequeue case - a similar
> one for the receive case is omitted for brevity):
