Subject[PATCH 5.8 037/177] padata: fix possible padata_works_lock deadlock
Date
From: Daniel Jordan <daniel.m.jordan@oracle.com>

[ Upstream commit 1b0df11fde0f14a269a181b3b7f5122415bc5ed7 ]

syzbot reports,

WARNING: inconsistent lock state
5.9.0-rc2-syzkaller #0 Not tainted
--------------------------------
inconsistent {IN-SOFTIRQ-W} -> {SOFTIRQ-ON-W} usage.
syz-executor.0/26715 takes:
(padata_works_lock){+.?.}-{2:2}, at: padata_do_parallel kernel/padata.c:220
{IN-SOFTIRQ-W} state was registered at:
spin_lock include/linux/spinlock.h:354 [inline]
padata_do_parallel kernel/padata.c:220
...
__do_softirq kernel/softirq.c:298
...
sysvec_apic_timer_interrupt arch/x86/kernel/apic/apic.c:1091
asm_sysvec_apic_timer_interrupt arch/x86/include/asm/idtentry.h:581

Possible unsafe locking scenario:

CPU0
----
lock(padata_works_lock);
<Interrupt>
lock(padata_works_lock);

padata_do_parallel() takes padata_works_lock with softirqs enabled, so a
deadlock is possible if, on the same CPU, the lock is acquired in
process context and then softirq handling done in an interrupt leads to
the same path.

Fix by leaving softirqs disabled while do_parallel holds
padata_works_lock.
