Subject[PATCH 5.4 196/309] eventfd: track eventfd_signal() recursion depth
Date
From: Jens Axboe <axboe@kernel.dk>

commit b5e683d5cab8cd433b06ae178621f083cabd4f63 upstream.

eventfd use cases from aio and io_uring can deadlock due to circular
or resursive calling, when eventfd_signal() tries to grab the waitqueue
lock. On top of that, it's also possible to construct notification
chains that are deep enough that we could blow the stack.

Add a percpu counter that tracks the percpu recursion depth, warn if we
exceed it. The counter is also exposed so that users of eventfd_signal()
can do the right thing if it's non-zero in the context where it is
called.
