Subject[PATCH] staging: comedi: comedi_fops: do not call blocking ops when !TASK_RUNNING
Date
Comedi's read and write file operation handlers (`comedi_read()` and
`comedi_write()`) currently call `copy_to_user()` or `copy_from_user()`
whilst in the `TASK_INTERRUPTIBLE` state, which falls foul of the
`might_fault()` checks when enabled. Fix it by setting the current task
state back to `TASK_RUNNING` a bit earlier before calling these
functions.

Cc: <stable@vger.kernel.org> # 4.5+
---
Note: stable kernel versions 4.4 and earlier will need a slightly more
extensive change in `comedi_write()` than provided by this patch due to
a call to `mutex_lock()` whilst in the `TASK_INTERRUPTIBLE` state.
