Subject[PATCH 4.14 34/52] ipmi: Stop timers before cleaning up the module
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Masamitsu Yamazaki <m-yamazaki@ah.jp.nec.com>

commit 4f7f5551a760eb0124267be65763008169db7087 upstream.

System may crash after unloading ipmi_si.ko module
because a timer may remain and fire after the module cleaned up resources.

cleanup_one_si() contains the following processing.

/*
* Make sure that interrupts, the timer and the thread are
* stopped and will not run again.
*/
if (to_clean->irq_cleanup)
to_clean->irq_cleanup(to_clean);
wait_for_timer_and_thread(to_clean);

/*
* Timeouts are stopped, now make sure the interrupts are off
* in the BMC. Note that timers and CPU interrupts are off,
* so no need for locks.
*/
while (to_clean->curr_msg || (to_clean->si_state != SI_NORMAL)) {
poll(to_clean);
schedule_timeout_uninterruptible(1);
}

si_state changes as following in the while loop calling poll(to_clean).

SI_GETTING_MESSAGES
=> SI_CHECKING_ENABLES
=> SI_SETTING_ENABLES
=> SI_GETTING_EVENTS
=> SI_NORMAL

As written in the code comments above,
timers are expected to stop before the polling loop and not to run again.
But the timer is set again in the following process
when si_state becomes SI_SETTING_ENABLES.

=> poll
=> smi_event_handler
=> handle_transaction_done
// smi_info->si_state == SI_SETTING_ENABLES
=> start_getting_events
=> start_new_msg
=> smi_mod_timer
=> mod_timer

As a result, before the timer set in start_new_msg() expires,
the polling loop may see si_state becoming SI_NORMAL
and the module clean-up finishes.

For example, hard LOCKUP and panic occurred as following.
smi_timeout was called after smi_event_handler,
kcs_event and hangs at port_inb()
trying to access I/O port after release.

To fix the problem I defined a flag, timer_can_start,
as member of struct smi_info.
The flag is enabled immediately after initializing the timer
and disabled immediately before waiting for timer deletion.

[Some fairly major changes went into the IPMI driver in 4.15, so this
required a backport as the code had changed and moved to a different
file.]
