Subject[PATCH 4.4 43/87] hwrng: core - sleep interruptible in read
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Jiri Slaby <jslaby@suse.cz>

commit 1ab87298cb59b649d8d648d25dc15b36ab865f5a upstream.

hwrng kthread can be waiting via hwrng_fillfn for some data from a rng
like virtio-rng:
hwrng D ffff880093e17798 0 382 2 0x00000000
...
Call Trace:
[<ffffffff817339c6>] wait_for_completion_killable+0x96/0x210
[<ffffffffa00aa1b7>] virtio_read+0x57/0xf0 [virtio_rng]
[<ffffffff814f4a35>] hwrng_fillfn+0x75/0x130
[<ffffffff810aa243>] kthread+0xf3/0x110

And when some user program tries to read the /dev node in this state,
we get:
rngd D ffff880093e17798 0 762 1 0x00000004
...
Call Trace:
[<ffffffff817351ac>] mutex_lock_nested+0x15c/0x3e0
[<ffffffff814f478e>] rng_dev_read+0x6e/0x240
[<ffffffff81231958>] __vfs_read+0x28/0xe0
[<ffffffff81232393>] vfs_read+0x83/0x130

And this is indeed unkillable. So use mutex_lock_interruptible
instead of mutex_lock in rng_dev_read and exit immediatelly when
interrupted. And possibly return already read data, if any (as POSIX
allows).

v2: use ERESTARTSYS instead of EINTR
