Subject[PATCH 3.14 05/59] iscsi-target: fix iscsit_del_np deadlock on unload
Date
3.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Mikulas Patocka <mpatocka@redhat.com>

commit 81a9c5e72bdf7109a65102ca61d8cbd722cf4021 upstream.

On uniprocessor preemptible kernel, target core deadlocks on unload. The
following events happen:
* iscsit_del_np is called
* it calls send_sig(SIGINT, np->np_thread, 1);
* the scheduler switches to the np_thread
* the np_thread is woken up, it sees that kthread_should_stop() returns
false, so it doesn't terminate
* the np_thread clears signals with flush_signals(current); and goes back
to sleep in iscsit_accept_np
* the scheduler switches back to iscsit_del_np
* iscsit_del_np calls kthread_stop(np->np_thread);
* the np_thread is waiting in iscsit_accept_np and it doesn't respond to
kthread_stop

The deadlock could be resolved if the administrator sends SIGINT signal to
the np_thread with killall -INT iscsi_np

The reproducible deadlock was introduced in commit
db6077fd0b7dd41dc6ff18329cec979379071f87, but the thread-stopping code was
racy even before.

This patch fixes the problem. Using kthread_should_stop to stop the
np_thread is unreliable, so we test np_thread_state instead. If
np_thread_state equals ISCSI_NP_THREAD_SHUTDOWN, the thread exits.
