SubjectRE: [PATCH] Fix the race between smp_call_function and CPU booting
Date
In fact, I started two scripts running:
1/ One script:
echo 0 > /sys/devices/system/cpuX/online
echo 1 > /sys/devices/system/cpuX/online
Rerunning the above commands in loop
2/Another script:
echo 1 > /debug/smp_call_test
usleep 50000
Rerunning the above command in loop
This race issue can be easy to be reproduced in several minutes;
For simplify your test as mine(just two CPUs), you can set other non-booting CPUs as offline
at first and just leave one non-booting CPU.
