Subject[PATCH] mm/memory_hotplug: Fix remove_memory() lockdep splat
From
Date
The daxctl unit test for the dax_kmem driver currently triggers the
lockdep splat below. It results from the fact that
remove_memory_block_devices() is invoked under the mem_hotplug_lock()
causing lockdep entanglements with cpu_hotplug_lock().

The mem_hotplug_lock() is not needed to synchronize the memory block
device sysfs interface vs the page online state, that is already handled
by lock_device_hotplug(). Specifically lock_device_hotplug()
is sufficient to allow try_remove_memory() to check the offline
state of the memblocks and be assured that subsequent online attempts
will be blocked. The device_online() path checks mem->section_count
before allowing any state manipulations and mem->section_count is
cleared in remove_memory_block_devices().

The add_memory() path does create memblock devices under the lock, but
there is no lockdep report on that path, so it is left alone for now.

This change is only possible thanks to the recent change that refactored
memory block device removal out of arch_remove_memory() (commit
4c4b7f9ba948 mm/memory_hotplug: remove memory block devices before
arch_remove_memory()).

other info that might help us debug this:

Chain exists of:
kn->count#241 --> cpu_hotplug_lock.rw_sem --> mem_hotplug_lock.rw_sem

Possible unsafe locking scenario:

CPU0 CPU1
---- ----
lock(mem_hotplug_lock.rw_sem);
lock(cpu_hotplug_lock.rw_sem);
lock(mem_hotplug_lock.rw_sem);
lock(kn->count#241);

*** DEADLOCK ***

No fixes tag as this seems to have been a long standing issue that
likely predated the addition of kernfs lockdep annotations.
