Subject[PATCH] s390/fault: use wake_up_klogd() in bust_spinlocks()
Date
printk() without oops_in_progress set is potentially dangerous.
it will attempt to call into console driver, so if oops happened
while console driver port->lock spin_lock was locked on the same
CPU (NMI oops or oops from console driver), then re-entering
console driver from bust_spinlocks() will deadlock the system.

Some serial drivers have are re-entrant from oops path:

static void serial_console_write(struct console *co, const char *s,
unsigned count)
{
...
if (port->sysrq)
locked = 0;
else if (oops_in_progress)
locked = spin_trylock_irqsave(&port->lock, flags);
else
spin_lock_irqsave(&port->lock, flags);
...

uart_console_write(port, s, count, serial_console_putchar);
...
if (locked)
spin_unlock_irqrestore(&port->lock, flags);
}

So it's OK to call printk() or console_unblank() and re-enter
serial console drivers when oops_in_progress set. But once we
clear oops_in_progress serial consoles become non-reentrant.

From the comment it seems that s390 wants to just poke klogd.
There is wake_up_klogd() for this purpose, so we can replace
that printk(" ").
