Subjectlockdep false positive in double_lock_balance()?
Date
Hi scheduler hackers,

I'm very occasionally seeing the lockdep warning below on our boxes
running 2.6.39 (PREEMPT=n, so "unfair" _double_lock_balance()). I
think I see the explanation, and it's probably not even worth fixing:

On the unlock side, we have:

static inline void double_unlock_balance(struct rq *this_rq, struct rq *busiest)
__releases(busiest->lock)
{
raw_spin_unlock(&busiest->lock);
lock_set_subclass(&this_rq->lock.dep_map, 0, _RET_IP_);
}
while on the lock side we have:

static int _double_lock_balance(struct rq *this_rq, struct rq *busiest)
__releases(this_rq->lock)
__acquires(busiest->lock)
__acquires(this_rq->lock)
{
int ret = 0;
if (unlikely(!raw_spin_trylock(&busiest->lock))) {
if (busiest < this_rq) {
raw_spin_unlock(&this_rq->lock);
raw_spin_lock(&busiest->lock);
raw_spin_lock_nested(&this_rq->lock,
SINGLE_DEPTH_NESTING);
ret = 1;
} else
raw_spin_lock_nested(&busiest->lock,
SINGLE_DEPTH_NESTING);
}
return ret;
}
So it seems we have the following (purely lockdep-related) race:

unlock: lock:

if (unlikely(!raw_spin_trylock(&busiest->lock))) { //fail to lock
raw_spin_unlock(&busiest->lock);

if (busiest < this_rq) { //not true
} else
raw_spin_lock_nested(&busiest->lock,
SINGLE_DEPTH_NESTING);
lock_set_subclass(&this_rq->lock.dep_map, 0, _RET_IP_); //too late
where we end up trying to take a second lock with SINGLE_DEPTH_NESTING
before we've promoted our first lock to subclass 0.

I'm not sure this is easily fixable (if we flipped the
lock_set_subclass() to before the raw_spin_unlock(), would we
introduce other lockdep problems?). Mostly I want to make sure
my diagnosis is correct and there's not some actual deadlock
that could happen.

So does this make sense?

Thanks,
Roland

Here's the actual lockdep warning:
