Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.14 55/61] locking/ww_mutex: Fix runtime warning in the WW mutex selftest
Date
From: Guenter Roeck <linux@roeck-us.net>

[ Upstream commit e4a02ed2aaf447fa849e3254bfdb3b9b01e1e520 ]

If CONFIG_WW_MUTEX_SELFTEST=y is enabled, booting an image
in an arm64 virtual machine results in the following
traceback if 8 CPUs are enabled:

DEBUG_LOCKS_WARN_ON(__owner_task(owner) != current)
WARNING: CPU: 2 PID: 537 at kernel/locking/mutex.c:1033 __mutex_unlock_slowpath+0x1a8/0x2e0
...
Call trace:
__mutex_unlock_slowpath()
ww_mutex_unlock()
test_cycle_work()
process_one_work()
worker_thread()
kthread()
ret_from_fork()

If requesting b_mutex fails with -EDEADLK, the error variable
is reassigned to the return value from calling ww_mutex_lock
on a_mutex again. If this call fails, a_mutex is not locked.
It is, however, unconditionally unlocked subsequently, causing
the reported warning. Fix the problem by using two error variables.

With this change, the selftest still fails as follows:

cyclic deadlock not resolved, ret[7/8] = -35

However, the traceback is gone.
