Subject[PATCH 3.18 041/145] [PATCH 087/760] net: pktgen: remove rcu locking in pktgen_change_name()
Date
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@google.com>


[ Upstream commit 9a0b1e8ba4061778897b544afc898de2163382f7 ]

After Jesper commit back in linux-3.18, we trigger a lockdep
splat in proc_create_data() while allocating memory from
pktgen_change_name().

This patch converts t->if_lock to a mutex, since it is now only
used from control path, and adds proper locking to pktgen_change_name()

1) pktgen_thread_lock to protect the outer loop (iterating threads)
2) t->if_lock to protect the inner loop (iterating devices)

Note that before Jesper patch, pktgen_change_name() was lacking proper
protection, but lockdep was not able to detect the problem.

Fixes: 8788370a1d4b ("pktgen: RCU-ify "if_list" to remove lock in next_to_run()")
