Subject[PATCHv6 6/7] printk: use printk_safe buffers in printk
Date
Use printk_safe per-CPU buffers in printk recursion-prone blocks:
-- around logbuf_lock protected sections in vprintk_emit() and
console_unlock()
-- around down_trylock_console_sem() and up_console_sem()

Note that this solution addresses deadlocks caused by printk()
recursive calls only. That is vprintk_emit() and console_unlock().

Another thing to note is that we now keep lockdep enabled in printk,
because we are protected against the printk recursion caused by lockdep
in vprintk_emit() by the printk-safe mechanism - we first switch to
per-CPU buffers and only then access the deadlock-prone locks.

Examples:

1) printk() from logbuf_lock spin_lock section

Assume the following code:
printk()
raw_spin_lock(&logbuf_lock);
WARN_ON(1);
raw_spin_unlock(&logbuf_lock);

which now produces:

------------[ cut here ]------------

---[ end trace ]---

2) printk() from semaphore sem->lock spin_lock section

Assume the following code

printk()
console_trylock()
down_trylock()
raw_spin_lock_irqsave(&sem->lock, flags);
WARN_ON(1);
raw_spin_unlock_irqrestore(&sem->lock, flags);

which now produces:

3) printk() from console_unlock()

Assume the following code:

printk()
console_unlock()
raw_spin_lock(&logbuf_lock);
WARN_ON(1);
raw_spin_unlock(&logbuf_lock);

which now produces:

4) printk() from try_to_wake_up()

Assume the following code:

printk()
console_unlock()
up()
try_to_wake_up()
raw_spin_lock_irqsave(&p->pi_lock, flags);
WARN_ON(1);
raw_spin_unlock_irqrestore(&p->pi_lock, flags);

which now produces:

5) printk() from call_console_drivers()

Assume the following code:
printk()
console_unlock()
call_console_drivers()
...
WARN_ON(1);

which now produces:
