Subject[PATCH 5.8 133/177] regulator: push allocation in regulator_init_coupling() outside of lock
Date
From: Michał Mirosław <mirq-linux@rere.qmqm.pl>

commit 73a32129f8ccb556704a26b422f54e048bf14bd0 upstream.

Allocating memory with regulator_list_mutex held makes lockdep unhappy
when memory pressure makes the system do fs_reclaim on eg. eMMC using
a regulator. Push the lock inside regulator_init_coupling() after the
allocation.

======================================================
WARNING: possible circular locking dependency detected
5.7.13+ #533 Not tainted
------------------------------------------------------
kswapd0/383 is trying to acquire lock:
cca78ca4 (&sbi->write_io[i][j].io_rwsem){++++}-{3:3}, at: __submit_merged_write_cond+0x104/0x154
but task is already holding lock:
c0e38518 (fs_reclaim){+.+.}-{0:0}, at: __fs_reclaim_acquire+0x0/0x50
which lock already depends on the new lock.
the existing dependency chain (in reverse order) is:
-> #2 (fs_reclaim){+.+.}-{0:0}:
fs_reclaim_acquire.part.11+0x40/0x50
fs_reclaim_acquire+0x24/0x28
__kmalloc+0x54/0x218
regulator_register+0x860/0x1584
dummy_regulator_probe+0x60/0xa8
[...]
other info that might help us debug this:

Chain exists of:
&sbi->write_io[i][j].io_rwsem --> regulator_list_mutex --> fs_reclaim

Possible unsafe locking scenario:

CPU0 CPU1
---- ----
lock(fs_reclaim);
lock(regulator_list_mutex);
lock(fs_reclaim);
lock(&sbi->write_io[i][j].io_rwsem);
*** DEADLOCK ***

1 lock held by kswapd0/383:
#0: c0e38518 (fs_reclaim){+.+.}-{0:0}, at: __fs_reclaim_acquire+0x0/0x50
[...]
