    Subject[PATCH v2] Hardware breakpoints: Invoke __perf_event_disable() if interrupts are already disabled
    From
    Date
    From: K.Prasad <Prasad.Krishnan@gmail.com>

    My apologies. I missed the From header in my previous mail.

    ---
    Please find v2 of the patch from Prasad, based on Peter Zijlstra's
    feedback. This applies on top of v3.5-rc5. This has been tested and
    found to work fine by Edjunior.

    Regards,
    Naveen

    While debugging a warning message on PowerPC while using hardware
    breakpoints, it was discovered that when perf_event_disable is invoked
    through hw_breakpoint_handler function with interrupts disabled, a
    subsequent IPI in the code path would trigger a WARN_ON_ONCE message in
    smp_call_function_single function.

    This patch calls __perf_event_disable() when interrupts are already
    disabled, instead of perf_event_disable().
