Subject[PATCH] net: make netdev_wait_allrefs wake-able
From
The combination of aca_free_rcu, introduced in commit 2384d02520ff
("net/ipv6: Add anycast addresses to a global hashtable"), and
fib6_info_destroy_rcu, introduced in commit 9b0a8da8c4c6 ("net/ipv6:
respect rcu grace period before freeing fib6_info"), can result in
an extra rcu grace period being needed when deleting an interface,
with the result that netdev_wait_allrefs ends up hitting the msleep(250),
which is considerably longer than the required grace period.
This can result in long delays when deleting a large number of interfaces,
and it can be observed with this script:

ns=dummy-ns
NIFS=100

ip netns add $ns
ip netns exec $ns ip link set lo up
ip netns exec $ns sysctl net.ipv6.conf.default.disable_ipv6=0
ip netns exec $ns sysctl net.ipv6.conf.default.forwarding=1

for ((i=0; i<$NIFS; i++))
do
if=eth$i
ip netns exec $ns ip link add $if type dummy
ip netns exec $ns ip link set $if up
ip netns exec $ns ip -6 addr add 2021:$i::1/120 dev $if
done

for ((i=0; i<$NIFS; i++))
do
if=eth$i
ip netns exec $ns ip link del $if
done

ip netns del $ns

This patch converts the msleep(250) into a wake-able wait,
allowing dev_put to wake up netdev_wait_allrefs.

Time with this patch on a 5.4 kernel:

real 0m7.494s
user 0m0.403s
sys 0m1.197s

Time without this patch:

real 0m31.522s
user 0m0.438s
sys 0m1.156s
