Subject[PATCH v3 net-next 08/11] net: bridge: put SWITCHDEV_ATTR_ID_PORT_BRIDGE_FLAGS on the blocking call chain
Date
From: Vladimir Oltean <vladimir.oltean@nxp.com>

Since we would like br_switchdev_set_port_flag to not use an atomic
notifier, it should be called from outside spinlock context.

We can temporarily drop br->lock, but that creates some concurrency
complications (example below is given for sysfs):
- There might be an "echo 1 > multicast_flood" simultaneous with an
"echo 0 > multicast_flood". The result of this is nondeterministic
either way, so I'm not too concerned as long as the result is
consistent (no other flags have changed).
- There might be an "echo 1 > multicast_flood" simultaneous with an
"echo 0 > learning". My expectation is that none of the two writes are
"eaten", and the final flags contain BR_MCAST_FLOOD=1 and BR_LEARNING=0
regardless of the order of execution. That is actually possible if, on
the commit path, we don't do a trivial "p->flags = flags" which might
overwrite bits outside of our mask, but instead we just change the
flags corresponding to our mask.

Now that br_switchdev_set_port_flag is never called from under br->lock,
it runs in sleepable context.

All switchdev drivers handle SWITCHDEV_PORT_ATTR_SET as both blocking
and atomic, so no changes are needed on that front.

Changes in v3:
- Drop the br->lock around br_switchdev_set_port_flag in this patch, for
both sysfs and netlink.
- Only set/restore the masked bits in p->flags to avoid concurrency
issues.

Changes in v2:
Patch is new.
