Subject[PATCH 4.2 17/61] ip_tunnel: disable preemption when updating per-cpu tstats
Date
4.2-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: "Jason A. Donenfeld" <Jason@zx2c4.com>

[ Upstream commit b4fe85f9c9146f60457e9512fb6055e69e6a7a65 ]

Drivers like vxlan use the recently introduced
udp_tunnel_xmit_skb/udp_tunnel6_xmit_skb APIs. udp_tunnel6_xmit_skb
makes use of ip6tunnel_xmit, and ip6tunnel_xmit, after sending the
packet, updates the struct stats using the usual
u64_stats_update_begin/end calls on this_cpu_ptr(dev->tstats).
udp_tunnel_xmit_skb makes use of iptunnel_xmit, which doesn't touch
tstats, so drivers like vxlan, immediately after, call
iptunnel_xmit_stats, which does the same thing - calls
u64_stats_update_begin/end on this_cpu_ptr(dev->tstats).

While vxlan is probably fine (I don't know?), calling a similar function
from, say, an unbound workqueue, on a fully preemptable kernel causes
real issues:

[ 188.434537] BUG: using smp_processor_id() in preemptible [00000000] code: kworker/u8:0/6
[ 188.435579] caller is debug_smp_processor_id+0x17/0x20
[ 188.435583] CPU: 0 PID: 6 Comm: kworker/u8:0 Not tainted 4.2.6 #2
[ 188.435607] Call Trace:
[ 188.435611] [<ffffffff8234e936>] dump_stack+0x4f/0x7b
[ 188.435615] [<ffffffff81915f3d>] check_preemption_disabled+0x19d/0x1c0
[ 188.435619] [<ffffffff81915f77>] debug_smp_processor_id+0x17/0x20

The solution would be to protect the whole
this_cpu_ptr(dev->tstats)/u64_stats_update_begin/end blocks with
disabling preemption and then reenabling it.
