Subject[PATCH 3.16 101/157] team: fix possible recursive locking when add slaves
3.16.72-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Hangbin Liu <>

commit 925b0c841e066b488cc3a60272472b2c56300704 upstream.

If we add a bond device which is already the master of the team interface,
we will hold the team->lock in team_add_slave() first and then request the
lock in team_set_mac_address() again. The functions are called like:

- team_add_slave()
- team_port_add()
- team_port_enter()
- team_modeop_port_enter()
- __set_port_dev_addr()
- dev_set_mac_address()
- bond_set_mac_address()
- dev_set_mac_address()
- team_set_mac_address

Although team_upper_dev_link() would check the upper devices but it is
called too late. Fix it by adding a checking before processing the slave.

v2: Do not split the string in netdev_err()
