Subject[PATCH 3.16.y-ckt 114/133] mmc: core: fix race condition in mmc_wait_data_done
Date
3.16.7-ckt18 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Jialing Fu <jlfu@marvell.com>

commit 71f8a4b81d040b3d094424197ca2f1bf811b1245 upstream.

The following panic is captured in ker3.14, but the issue still exists
in latest kernel.

Because in SMP, "mrq" has race condition between below two paths:
path1: CPU0: <tasklet context>
static void mmc_wait_data_done(struct mmc_request *mrq)
{
mrq->host->context_info.is_done_rcv = true;
//
// If CPU0 has just finished "is_done_rcv = true" in path1, and at
// this moment, IRQ or ICache line missing happens in CPU0.
// What happens in CPU1 (path2)?
//
// If the mmcqd thread in CPU1(path2) hasn't entered to sleep mode:
// path2 would have chance to break from wait_event_interruptible
// in mmc_wait_for_data_req_done and continue to run for next
// mmc_request (mmc_blk_rw_rq_prep).
//
// Within mmc_blk_rq_prep, mrq is cleared to 0.
// If below line still gets host from "mrq" as the result of
// compiler, the panic happens as we traced.
wake_up_interruptible(&mrq->host->context_info.wait);
}

path2: CPU1: <The mmcqd thread runs mmc_queue_thread>
static int mmc_wait_for_data_req_done(...
{
...
while (1) {
wait_event_interruptible(context_info->wait,
(context_info->is_done_rcv ||
context_info->is_new_req));
static void mmc_blk_rw_rq_prep(...
{
...
memset(brq, 0, sizeof(struct mmc_blk_request));

This issue happens very coincidentally; however adding mdelay(1) in
mmc_wait_data_done as below could duplicate it easily.

static void mmc_wait_data_done(struct mmc_request *mrq)
{
mrq->host->context_info.is_done_rcv = true;
+ mdelay(1);
wake_up_interruptible(&mrq->host->context_info.wait);
}

At runtime, IRQ or ICache line missing may just happen at the same place
of the mdelay(1).

This patch gets the mmc_context_info at the beginning of function, it can
avoid this race condition.
