Subject[PATCH 4.4 089/105] media: dvb_frontend: fix locking issues at dvb_frontend_get_event()
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Mauro Carvalho Chehab <mchehab@s-opensource.com>

commit 76d81243a487c09619822ef8e7201a756e58a87d upstream.

As warned by smatch:
drivers/media/dvb-core/dvb_frontend.c:314 dvb_frontend_get_event() warn: inconsistent returns 'sem:&fepriv->sem'.
Locked on: line 288
line 295
line 306
line 314
Unlocked on: line 303

The lock implementation for get event is wrong, as, if an
interrupt occurs, down_interruptible() will fail, and the
routine will call up() twice when userspace calls the ioctl
again.

The bad code is there since when Linux migrated to git, in
2005.
