Subject[PATCH 3.10 15/17] smpboot: Add missing get_online_cpus() in smpboot_register_percpu_thread()
Date
3.10-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Lai Jiangshan <laijs@cn.fujitsu.com>

commit 4bee96860a65c3a62d332edac331b3cf936ba3ad upstream.

The following race exists in the smpboot percpu threads management:

CPU0 CPU1
cpu_up(2)
get_online_cpus();
smpboot_create_threads(2);
smpboot_register_percpu_thread();
for_each_online_cpu();
__smpboot_create_thread();
__cpu_up(2);

This results in a missing per cpu thread for the newly onlined cpu2 and
in a NULL pointer dereference on a consecutive offline of that cpu.

Proctect smpboot_register_percpu_thread() with get_online_cpus() to
prevent that.

[ tglx: Massaged changelog and removed the change in
smpboot_unregister_percpu_thread() because that's an
optimization and therefor not stable material. ]
