    Subject[49/54] xen: Do not suspend IPI IRQs.
    2.6.34-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


    From: Ian Campbell <>

    commit 4877c737283813bdb4bebfa3168c1585f6e3a8ca upstream.

    In general the semantics of IPIs are that they are are expected to
    continue functioning after dpm_suspend_noirq().

    Specifically I have seen a deadlock between the callfunc IPI and the
    stop machine used by xen's do_suspend() routine. If one CPU has already
    called dpm_suspend_noirq() then there is a window where it can be sent
    a callfunc IPI before all the other CPUs have entered stop_cpu().

    If this happens then the first CPU ends up spinning in stop_cpu()
    waiting for the other to rendezvous in state STOPMACHINE_PREPARE while
    the other is spinning in csd_lock_wait().
