Subject[PATCH v8 1/8] softirq: reorder trace_softirqs_on to prevent lockdep splat
Date
From: "Joel Fernandes (Google)" <joel@joelfernandes.org>

I'm able to reproduce a lockdep splat with config options:
CONFIG_PROVE_LOCKING=y,
CONFIG_DEBUG_LOCK_ALLOC=y and
CONFIG_PREEMPTIRQ_EVENTS=y

$ echo 1 > /d/tracing/events/preemptirq/preempt_enable/enable

The issue was this:

preempt_count = 1 << SOFTIRQ_SHIFT

__local_bh_enable(cnt = 1 << SOFTIRQ_SHIFT) {
if (softirq_count() == (cnt && SOFTIRQ_MASK)) {
trace_softirqs_on() {
current->softirqs_enabled = 1;
}
}
preempt_count_sub(cnt) {
trace_preempt_on() {
tracepoint() {
rcu_read_lock_sched() {
// jumps into lockdep

Where preempt_count still has softirqs disabled, but
current->softirqs_enabled is true, and we get a splat.
