Subject[PATCH 4.4 047/160] xen: make xen_qlock_wait() nestable
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Juergen Gross <jgross@suse.com>

commit a856531951dc8094359dfdac21d59cee5969c18e upstream.

xen_qlock_wait() isn't safe for nested calls due to interrupts. A call
of xen_qlock_kick() might be ignored in case a deeper nesting level
was active right before the call of xen_poll_irq():

CPU 1: CPU 2:
spin_lock(lock1)
spin_lock(lock1)
-> xen_qlock_wait()
-> xen_clear_irq_pending()
Interrupt happens
spin_unlock(lock1)
-> xen_qlock_kick(CPU 2)
spin_lock_irqsave(lock2)
spin_lock_irqsave(lock2)
-> xen_qlock_wait()
-> xen_clear_irq_pending()
clears kick for lock1
-> xen_poll_irq()
spin_unlock_irq_restore(lock2)
-> xen_qlock_kick(CPU 2)
wakes up
spin_unlock_irq_restore(lock2)
IRET
resumes in xen_qlock_wait()
-> xen_poll_irq()
never wakes up

The solution is to disable interrupts in xen_qlock_wait() and not to
poll for the irq in case xen_qlock_wait() is called in nmi context.
