Subject[PATCH 1/2] coccinelle: api/stream_open: treat all wait_.*() calls as blocking
Date
Previously steam_open.cocci was treating only wait_event_.* - e.g.
wait_event_interruptible - as a blocking operation. However e.g.
wait_for_completion_interruptible is also blocking, and so from this
point of view it would be more logical to treat all wait_.* as a
blocking point.

The logic of this change actually came up for real when
drivers/pci/switch/switchtec.c changed from using
wait_event_interruptible to wait_for_completion_interruptible:

https://lore.kernel.org/linux-pci/20190413170056.GA11293@deco.navytux.spb.ru/
https://lore.kernel.org/linux-pci/20190415145456.GA15280@deco.navytux.spb.ru/
https://lore.kernel.org/linux-pci/20190415154102.GB17661@deco.navytux.spb.ru/

For a driver that uses nonseekable_open with read/write having stream
semantic and read also calling e.g. wait_for_completion_interruptible,
running stream_open.cocci before this patch would produce:

WARNING: <driver>_fops: .read() and .write() have stream semantic; safe to change nonseekable_open -> stream_open.

while after this patch it will report:

ERROR: <driver>_fops: .read() can deadlock .write(); change nonseekable_open -> stream_open to fix.
