Subject[PATCH 4.12 36/65] staging: comedi: comedi_fops: do not call blocking ops when !TASK_RUNNING
Date
4.12-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Ian Abbott <abbotti@mev.co.uk>

commit cef988642cdac44e910a27cb6e8166c96f86a0df upstream.

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.
