    hrtimer: Don't reinitialize a cpu_base lock on CPU_UP · 84cc8fd2
    Michael Bohan authored
    The current code makes the assumption that a cpu_base lock won't be
    held if the CPU corresponding to that cpu_base is offline, which isn't
    always true.
    If a hrtimer is not queued, then it will not be migrated by
    migrate_hrtimers() when a CPU is offlined. Therefore, the hrtimer's
    cpu_base may still point to a CPU which has subsequently gone offline
    if the timer wasn't enqueued at the time the CPU went down.
    Normally this wouldn't be a problem, but a cpu_base's lock is blindly
    reinitialized each time a CPU is brought up. If a CPU is brought
    online during the period that another thread is performing a hrtimer
    operation on a stale hrtimer, then the lock will be reinitialized
    under its feet, and a SPIN_BUG() like the following will be observed:

    As an example, this particular crash occurred when hrtimer_start() was
    executed on CPU #0. The code locked the hrtimer's current cpu_base
    corresponding to CPU #1. CPU #0 then tried to switch the hrtimer's
    cpu_base to an optimal CPU which was online. In this case, it selected
    the cpu_base corresponding to CPU #3.
    Before it could proceed, CPU #1 came online and reinitialized the
    spinlock corresponding to its cpu_base. Thus now CPU #0 held a lock
    which was reinitialized. When CPU #0 finally ended up unlocking the
    old cpu_base corresponding to CPU #1 so that it could switch to CPU
    #3, we hit this SPIN_BUG() above while in switch_hrtimer_base().
    CPU #0                            CPU #1
    ----                              ----
    ...                               <offline>
    lock_hrtimer_base(base #1)
    ...                               init_hrtimers_cpu()
    switch_hrtimer_base()             ...
    ...                               raw_spin_lock_init(&cpu_base->lock)
    raw_spin_unlock(&cpu_base->lock)  ...
    Solve this by statically initializing the lock.
