Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL for 4.14 068/100] net: dsa: mv88e6xxx: Fix interrupt masking on removal
From: Andrew Lunn <>

[ Upstream commit 3d5fdba1842bdd2eef29364c660558cb4cbb3fe0 ]

When removing the interrupt handling code, we should mask the
generation of interrupts. The code however unmasked all
interrupts. This can then cause a new interrupt. We then get into a
deadlock where the interrupt thread is waiting to run, and the code
continues, trying to remove the interrupt handler, which means waiting
for the thread to complete. On a UP machine this deadlocks.

Fix so we really mask interrupts in the hardware. The same error is
made in the error path when install the interrupt handling code.

Fixes: 3460a5770ce9 ("net: dsa: mv88e6xxx: Mask g1 interrupts and free interrupt")
