Subject[PATCH 2/2] fcntl: fix potential deadlock for &fasync_struct.fa_lock
Date
There is an existing lock hierarchy of
&dev->event_lock --> &fasync_struct.fa_lock --> &f->f_owner.lock
from the following call chain:

input_inject_event():
spin_lock_irqsave(&dev->event_lock,...);
input_handle_event():
input_pass_values():
input_to_handler():
evdev_events():
evdev_pass_values():
spin_lock(&client->buffer_lock);
__pass_event():
kill_fasync():
kill_fasync_rcu():
read_lock(&fa->fa_lock);
send_sigio():
read_lock_irqsave(&fown->lock,...);

&dev->event_lock is HARDIRQ-safe, so interrupts have to be disabled
while grabbing &fasync_struct.fa_lock, otherwise we invert the lock
hierarchy. However, since kill_fasync which calls kill_fasync_rcu is
an exported symbol, it may not necessarily be called with interrupts
disabled.

As kill_fasync_rcu may be called with interrupts disabled (for
example, in the call chain above), we replace calls to
read_lock/read_unlock on &fasync_struct.fa_lock in kill_fasync_rcu
with read_lock_irqsave/read_unlock_irqrestore.
