Subject[PATCH v3 1/2] epoll: fix possible lost wakeup on epoll_ctl() path
Date
This fixes possible lost wakeup introduced by the a218cc491420.
Originally modifications to ep->wq were serialized by ep->wq.lock,
but in the a218cc491420 new rw lock was introduced in order to
relax fd event path, i.e. callers of ep_poll_callback() function.

After the change ep_modify and ep_insert (both are called on
epoll_ctl() path) were switched to ep->lock, but ep_poll
(epoll_wait) was using ep->wq.lock on wqueue list modification.

The bug doesn't lead to any wqueue list corruptions, because wake up
path and list modifications were serialized by ep->wq.lock
internally, but actual waitqueue_active() check prior wake_up()
call can be reordered with modifications of ep ready list, thus
wake up can be lost.

And yes, can be healed by explicit smp_mb():

list_add_tail(&epi->rdlink, &ep->rdllist);
smp_mb();
if (waitqueue_active(&ep->wq))
wake_up(&ep->wp);

But let's make it simple, thus current patch replaces ep->wq.lock
with the ep->lock for wqueue modifications, thus wake up path
always observes activeness of the wqueue correcty.

Fixes: a218cc491420 ("epoll: use rwlock in order to reduce ep_poll_callback() contention")
