Subject[PATCH 1/2] IB/hfi1: Use preempt_{dis,en}able_nort()
Date
From: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com>

sc_buffer_alloc() disables preemption that will be reenabled by either
pio_copy() or seg_pio_copy_end(). But before disabling preemption it
grabs a spin lock that will be dropped after it disables preemption,
which ends up triggering a warning in migrate_disable() later on.

spin_lock_irqsave(&sc->alloc_lock)
migrate_disable() ++p->migrate_disable -> 2
preempt_disable()
spin_unlock_irqrestore(&sc->alloc_lock)
migrate_enable() in_atomic(), so just returns, migrate_disable stays at 2
spin_lock_irqsave(some other lock) -> b00m

And the WARN_ON code ends up tripping over this over and over in
log_store().

Sequence captured via ftrace_dump_on_oops + crash utility 'dmesg'
command.

According to a discussion (see Link: below) on the linux-rt-users
mailing list, this locking is done for performance reasons, not for
correctness, so use the _nort() variants to avoid the above problem.
