Subject[PATCH 4.4 038/160] driver/dma/ioat: Call del_timer_sync() without holding prep_lock
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Waiman Long <longman@redhat.com>

[ Upstream commit cfb03be6c7e8a1591285849c361d67b09f5149f7 ]

The following lockdep splat was observed:

In the ioat_shutdown() function:

spin_lock_bh(&ioat_chan->prep_lock);
set_bit(IOAT_CHAN_DOWN, &ioat_chan->state);
del_timer_sync(&ioat_chan->timer);
spin_unlock_bh(&ioat_chan->prep_lock);

According to the synchronization rule for the del_timer_sync() function,
the caller must not hold locks which would prevent completion of the
timer's handler.

The timer structure has its own lock that manages its synchronization.
Setting the IOAT_CHAN_DOWN bit should prevent other CPUs from
trying to use that device anyway, there is probably no need to call
del_timer_sync() while holding the prep_lock. So the del_timer_sync()
call is now moved outside of the prep_lock critical section to prevent
the circular lock dependency.
