Subject[PATCH 4.18 082/235] s390/qeth: fix race in used-buffer accounting
Date
4.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Julian Wiedmann <jwi@linux.ibm.com>

[ Upstream commit a702349a4099cd5a7bab0904689d8e0bf8dcd622 ]

By updating q->used_buffers only _after_ do_QDIO() has completed, there
is a potential race against the buffer's TX completion. In the unlikely
case that the TX completion path wins, qeth_qdio_output_handler() would
decrement the counter before qeth_flush_buffers() even incremented it.
