Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 021/209] iommu/io-pgtable-arm: Fix race handling in split_blk_unmap()
From: Robin Murphy <>

[ Upstream commit 85c7a0f1ef624ef58173ef52ea77780257bdfe04 ]

In removing the pagetable-wide lock, we gained the possibility of the
vanishingly unlikely case where we have a race between two concurrent
unmappers splitting the same block entry. The logic to handle this is
fairly straightforward - whoever loses the race frees their partial
next-level table and instead dereferences the winner's newly-installed
entry in order to fall back to a regular unmap, which intentionally
echoes the pre-existing case of recursively splitting a 1GB block down
to 4KB pages by installing a full table of 2MB blocks first.

Unfortunately, the chump who implemented that logic failed to update the
condition check for that fallback, meaning that if said race occurs at
the last level (where the loser's unmap_idx is valid) then the unmap
won't actually happen. Fix that to properly account for both the race
and recursive cases.
