Subject[PATCH 4.9 184/223] um: Silence lockdep complaint about mmap_sem
Date
[ Upstream commit 80bf6ceaf9310b3f61934c69b382d4912deee049 ]

When we get into activate_mm(), lockdep complains that we're doing
something strange:

WARNING: possible circular locking dependency detected
5.1.0-10252-gb00152307319-dirty #121 Not tainted
------------------------------------------------------
inside.sh/366 is trying to acquire lock:
(____ptrval____) (&(&p->alloc_lock)->rlock){+.+.}, at: flush_old_exec+0x703/0x8d7

but task is already holding lock:
(____ptrval____) (&mm->mmap_sem){++++}, at: flush_old_exec+0x6c5/0x8d7

which lock already depends on the new lock.

the existing dependency chain (in reverse order) is:

-> #1 (&mm->mmap_sem){++++}:
[...]
__lock_acquire+0x12ab/0x139f
lock_acquire+0x155/0x18e
down_write+0x3f/0x98
flush_old_exec+0x748/0x8d7
load_elf_binary+0x2ca/0xddb
[...]

-> #0 (&(&p->alloc_lock)->rlock){+.+.}:
[...]
__lock_acquire+0x12ab/0x139f

_raw_spin_lock+0x30/0x83
flush_old_exec+0x703/0x8d7
load_elf_binary+0x2ca/0xddb
[...]

other info that might help us debug this:

Possible unsafe locking scenario:

lock(&mm->mmap_sem);

lock(&mm->mmap_sem);
lock(&(&p->alloc_lock)->rlock);

I think it's because in exec_mmap() we have

down_read(&old_mm->mmap_sem);
...
task_lock(tsk);
...
activate_mm(active_mm, mm);
(which does down_write(&mm->mmap_sem))

I'm not really sure why lockdep throws in the whole knowledge
about the task lock, but it seems that old_mm and mm shouldn't
ever be the same (and it doesn't deadlock) so tell lockdep that
they're different.
