Subject[PATCH 4.4 16/50] IB/ipoib: Fix deadlock over vlan_mutex
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Feras Daoud <ferasda@mellanox.com>


[ Upstream commit 1c3098cdb05207e740715857df7b0998e372f527 ]

This patch fixes Deadlock while executing ipoib_vlan_delete.

The function takes the vlan_rwsem semaphore and calls
unregister_netdevice. The later function calls
ipoib_mcast_stop_thread that cause workqueue flush.

When the queue has one of the ipoib_ib_dev_flush_xxx events,
a deadlock occur because these events also tries to catch the
same vlan_rwsem semaphore.

To fix, unregister_netdevice should be called after releasing
the semaphore.
