      workqueue: fix possible idle worker depletion across CPU hotplug · ee378aa4
      Lai Jiangshan authored
      To simplify both normal and CPU hotplug paths, worker management is
      prevented while CPU hoplug is in progress.  This is achieved by CPU
      hotplug holding the same exclusion mechanism used by workers to ensure
      there's only one manager per pool.
      If someone else seems to be performing the manager role, workers
      proceed to execute work items.  CPU hotplug using the same mechanism
      can lead to idle worker depletion because all workers could proceed to
      execute work items while CPU hotplug is in progress and CPU hotplug
      itself wouldn't actually perform the worker management duty - it
      doesn't guarantee that there's an idle worker left when it releases
      This idle worker depletion, under extreme circumstances, can break
      forward-progress guarantee and thus lead to deadlock.
      This patch fixes the bug by using separate mechanisms for manager
      exclusion among workers and hotplug exclusion.  For manager exclusion,
      POOL_MANAGING_WORKERS which was restored by the previous patch is
      used.  pool->manager_mutex is now only used for exclusion between the
      elected manager and CPU hotplug.  The elected manager won't proceed
      without holding pool->manager_mutex.
      This ensures that the worker which won the manager position can't skip
      managing while CPU hotplug is in progress.  It will block on
      manager_mutex and perform management after CPU hotplug is complete.
      Note that hotplug may happen while waiting for manager_mutex.  A
      manager isn't either on idle or busy list and thus the hoplug code
      can't unbind/rebind it.  Make the manager handle its own un/rebinding.
      tj: Updated comment and description.

      workqueue: restore POOL_MANAGING_WORKERS · 552a37e9
      Lai Jiangshan authored
      This patch restores POOL_MANAGING_WORKERS which was replaced by
      pool->manager_mutex by 60373152
       "workqueue: use mutex for global_cwq
      manager exclusion".
      There's a subtle idle worker depletion bug across CPU hotplug events
      and we need to distinguish an actual manager and CPU hotplug
      preventing management.  POOL_MANAGING_WORKERS will be used for the
      former and manager_mutex the later.
      This patch just lays POOL_MANAGING_WORKERS on top of the existing
      manager_mutex and doesn't introduce any synchronization changes.  The
      next patch will update it.
      Note that this patch fixes a non-critical anomaly where
      too_many_workers() may return %true spuriously while CPU hotplug is in
      progress.  While the issue could schedule idle timer spuriously, it
      didn't trigger any actual misbehavior.
      tj: Rewrote patch description.

      It caused by release kvm->arch.ept_identity_map_addr which is the
      error page.
      The parent thread can send KILL signal to the vcpu thread when it was
      exiting which stops faulting pages and potentially allocating memory.
      So gfn_to_pfn/gfn_to_page may fail at this time
      Fixed by checking the page before it is used

      ALSA: hda - Fix Oops at codec reset/reconfig · 07dc59f0
      Takashi Iwai authored
      snd_hda_codec_reset() calls restore_pincfgs() where the codec is
      powered up again, which eventually tries to resume and initialize via
      the callbacks of the codec.  However, it's the place just after codec
      free callback, thus no codec callbacks should be called after that.
      On a codec like CS4206, it results in Oops due to the access in init
      This patch fixes the issue by clearing the codec callbacks properly
      after freeing codec.

      i2c-core: Fix for lockdep validator · 390946b1
      Jean Delvare authored
      If kernel is compiled with CONFIG_PROVE_LOCKING the
      validator raises an error when a multiplexer is removed
      via sysfs and sub-clients are connected to it. This is a
      false positive.
      Documentation/lockdep-design.txt recommends to handle this
      via calls to mutex_lock_nested().
      Based on an earlier fix from Michael Lawnick.
