Subject[PATCH tip/core/rcu 19/21] rcu: fix deadlock in TREE_PREEMPT_RCU CPU stall detection
Date
Under TREE_PREEMPT_RCU, print_other_cpu_stall() invokes
rcu_print_task_stall() with the root rcu_node structure's ->lock held,
and rcu_print_task_stall() acquires that same lock for self-deadlock.
Fix this by removing the lock acquisition from rcu_print_task_stall(),
and making all callers acquire the lock instead.
