Subject[PATCH 5.5 39/46] IB/hfi1: Ensure pq is not left on waitlist
From: Mike Marciniszyn <>

commit 9a293d1e21a6461a11b4217b155bf445e57f4131 upstream.

The following warning can occur when a pq is left on the dmawait list and
the pq is then freed:

WARNING: CPU: 47 PID: 3546 at lib/list_debug.c:29 __list_add+0x65/0xc0

The issue happens when wait_event_interruptible_timeout() returns a value
<= 0.

In that case, the pq is left on the list. The code continues sending
packets and potentially can complete the current request with the pq still
on the dmawait list provided no descriptor shortage is seen.

If the pq is torn down in that state, the sdma interrupt handler could
find the now freed pq on the list with list corruption or memory
corruption resulting.

Fix by adding a flush routine to ensure that the pq is never on a list
after processing a request.

A follow-up patch series will address issues with seqlock surfaced in:

The seqlock use for sdma will then be converted to a spin lock since the
list_empty() doesn't need the protection afforded by the sequence lock
currently in use.
