Subject[PATCH 4.9 027/101] powerpc/powernv/ioda2: Remove redundant free of TCE pages
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Alexey Kardashevskiy <>

commit 98fd72fe82527fd26618062b60cfd329451f2329 upstream.

When IODA2 creates a PE, it creates an IOMMU table with it_ops::free
set to pnv_ioda2_table_free() which calls pnv_pci_ioda2_table_free_pages().

Since iommu_tce_table_put() calls it_ops::free when the last reference
to the table is released, explicit call to pnv_pci_ioda2_table_free_pages()
is not needed so let's remove it.

This should fix double free in the case of PCI hotuplug as
pnv_pci_ioda2_table_free_pages() does not reset neither
iommu_table::it_base nor ::it_size.

This was not exposed by SRIOV as it uses different code path via

IODA1 does not inialize it_ops::free so it does not have this issue.
