Subject[PATCH 4.14 039/110] net: ethernet: ti: cpsw: fix net watchdog timeout
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Grygorii Strashko <grygorii.strashko@ti.com>


[ Upstream commit 62f94c2101f35cd45775df00ba09bde77580e26a ]

It was discovered that simple program which indefinitely sends 200b UDP
packets and runs on TI AM574x SoC (SMP) under RT Kernel triggers network
watchdog timeout in TI CPSW driver (<6 hours run). The network watchdog
timeout is triggered due to race between cpsw_ndo_start_xmit() and
cpsw_tx_handler() [NAPI]

cpsw_ndo_start_xmit()
if (unlikely(!cpdma_check_free_tx_desc(txch))) {
txq = netdev_get_tx_queue(ndev, q_idx);
netif_tx_stop_queue(txq);

^^ as per [1] barier has to be used after set_bit() otherwise new value
might not be visible to other cpus
}

cpsw_tx_handler()
if (unlikely(netif_tx_queue_stopped(txq)))
netif_tx_wake_queue(txq);

and when it happens ndev TX queue became disabled forever while driver's HW
TX queue is empty.

Fix this, by adding smp_mb__after_atomic() after netif_tx_stop_queue()
calls and double check for free TX descriptors after stopping ndev TX queue
- if there are free TX descriptors wake up ndev TX queue.
