Subject[PATCH] x86: keep chip_data in create_irq_nr


Brodon found:
race happened when two drivers were setting up MSI-X at the same
time via pci_enable_msix(). See this dmesg excerpt:

[ 85.170610] ixgbe 0000:02:00.1: irq 97 for MSI/MSI-X
[ 85.170611] alloc irq_desc for 99 on node -1
[ 85.170613] igb 0000:08:00.1: irq 98 for MSI/MSI-X
[ 85.170614] alloc kstat_irqs on node -1
[ 85.170616] alloc irq_2_iommu on node -1
[ 85.170617] alloc irq_desc for 100 on node -1
[ 85.170619] alloc kstat_irqs on node -1
[ 85.170621] alloc irq_2_iommu on node -1
[ 85.170625] ixgbe 0000:02:00.1: irq 99 for MSI/MSI-X

[ 85.170628] igb 0000:08:00.1: irq 100 for MSI/MSI-X

[ 85.170631] alloc irq_2_iommu on node -1
[ 85.170635] alloc irq_desc for 102 on node -1
[ 85.170636] alloc kstat_irqs on node -1
[ 85.170639] alloc irq_2_iommu on node -1
[ 85.170646] BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference
at 0000000000000088
As you can see igb and ixgbe are both alternating on create_irq_nr()
via pci_enable_msix() in their probe function.

ixgbe: While looping through irq_desc_ptrs[] via create_irq_nr() ixgbe
choses irq_desc_ptrs[102] and exits the loop, drops vector_lock and
calls dynamic_irq_init. Then it sets irq_desc_ptrs[102]->chip_data =
NULL via dynamic_irq_init().

igb: Grabs the vector_lock now and starts looping over irq_desc_ptrs[]
via create_irq_nr(). It gets to irq_desc_ptrs[102] and does this:

cfg_new = irq_desc_ptrs[102]->chip_data;
if (cfg_new->vector != 0)
continue;
This hits the NULL deref.

so let remove the save and restore code.

just don't clear it in that path
