Subject[PATCH RT 22/27] sas-ata/isci: dontt disable interrupts in qc_issue handler
3.4.106-rt132-rc1 stable review patch.
If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Paul Gortmaker <>

On 3.14-rt we see the following trace on Canoe Pass for
SCSI_ISCI "Intel(R) C600 Series Chipset SAS Controller"
when the sas qc_issue handler is run:

BUG: sleeping function called from invalid context at kernel/locking/rtmutex.c:905

and gdb shows:

(gdb) list * isci_task_execute_task+0x171
0xffffffff815ddfb1 is in isci_task_execute_task (drivers/scsi/isci/task.c:138).
133 dev_dbg(&ihost->pdev->dev, "%s: num=%d\n", __func__, num);
135 for_each_sas_task(num, task) {
136 enum sci_status status = SCI_FAILURE;
138 spin_lock_irqsave(&ihost->scic_lock, flags); <-----
139 idev = isci_lookup_device(task->dev);
140 io_ready = isci_device_io_ready(idev, task);
141 tag = isci_alloc_tag(ihost);
142 spin_unlock_irqrestore(&ihost->scic_lock, flags);

In addition to the scic_lock, the function also contains locking of
the task_state_lock -- which is clearly not a candidate for raw lock
conversion. As can be seen by the comment nearby, we really should
be running the qc_issue code with interrupts enabled anyway.
