SubjectSpinlock recursion detected on preempt-RT and interrupt handler set_type code
Hello All,

I ran into a spinlock recursion problem while testing the locking
corrctness of a on a Freescale iMX processor
(ARM). Unfortunately this Freescale architecture code is not in
mainline, but at least the blackfin architecture seems to have the
same setup (looking at bfin_gpio_irq_type() ), so it is not a
Freescale only problem.

What happens is that these routines are called in this order:
-> request_irq()
-> setup_irq() --> Lock the spinlock
(spin_lock_irqsave(&desc->lock, flags)) for the first time
-> gpio_set_irq_type() (or bfin_gpio_irq_type() on blackfin
in arch/blackfin/mach-common/ints-priority-sc.c)
-> set_irq_handler()
-> __set_irq_handler() --> Locks the same spinlock a
2nd time, resulting in a BUG/hang, see below

I am looking at this code for a while now, and have not found a proper
solution to solve this problem yet. Does anyone have a great idea?

Kind Regards,
