Subject[PATCH 4.9 13/78] Revert "net: phy: Correctly process PHY_HALTED in phy_stop_machine()"
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Florian Fainelli <f.fainelli@gmail.com>


[ Upstream commit ebc8254aeae34226d0bc8fda309fd9790d4dccfe ]

This reverts commit 7ad813f208533cebfcc32d3d7474dc1677d1b09a ("net: phy:
Correctly process PHY_HALTED in phy_stop_machine()") because it is
creating the possibility for a NULL pointer dereference.

David Daney provide the following call trace and diagram of events:

When ndo_stop() is called we call:

phy_disconnect()
+---> phy_stop_interrupts() implies: phydev->irq = PHY_POLL;
+---> phy_stop_machine()
| +---> phy_state_machine()
| +----> queue_delayed_work(): Work queued.
+--->phy_detach() implies: phydev->attached_dev = NULL;

Now at a later time the queued work does:

phy_state_machine()
+---->netif_carrier_off(phydev->attached_dev): Oh no! It is NULL:

The original motivation for this change originated from Marc Gonzales
indicating that his network driver did not have its adjust_link callback
executing with phydev->link = 0 while he was expecting it.

PHYLIB has never made any such guarantees ever because phy_stop() merely just
tells the workqueue to move into PHY_HALTED state which will happen
asynchronously.
