Subject[PATCH 3/3] x86/MCE: Synchronize sysfs changes
Date
From: Seunghun Han <kkamagui@gmail.com>

The check_interval file in

/sys/devices/system/machinecheck/machinecheck<cpu number>

directory is a global timer value for MCE polling. If it is changed by
one CPU, mce_restart() broadcasts the event to other CPUs to delete
and restart the MCE polling timer and __mcheck_cpu_init_timer()
reinitializes the mce_timer variable.

If more than one CPU writes a specific value to the check_interval file
concurrently, mce_timer is not protected from such concurrent accesses
and all kinds of explosions happen.

Since only root can write to those sysfs variables, the issue is not a
big deal security-wise.

However, concurrent writes to these configuration variables is
void of reason so the proper thing to do is to "slow" accesses
down by synchronizing them with a mutex and thus take care of the
synchronization issue too.

Boris:

- make store_int_with_restart() use device_store_ulong() to filter out
negative intervals
- limit min interval to 1 second
- correct locking
- massage commit message
