Subject[PATCH 5.4 197/309] aio: prevent potential eventfd recursion on poll
Date
From: Jens Axboe <axboe@kernel.dk>

commit 01d7a356872eec22ef34a33a5f9cfa917d145468 upstream.

If we have nested or circular eventfd wakeups, then we can deadlock if
we run them inline from our poll waitqueue wakeup handler. It's also
possible to have very long chains of notifications, to the extent where
we could risk blowing the stack.

Check the eventfd recursion count before calling eventfd_signal(). If
it's non-zero, then punt the signaling to async context. This is always
safe, as it takes us out-of-line in terms of stack and locking context.
