Subject[PATCH v2 0/2] fcntl: fix potential deadlocks
Date
Hi,

Sorry for the delay between v1 and v2, there was an unrelated issue with Syzbot testing.

Syzbot reports a possible irq lock inversion dependency:
https://syzkaller.appspot.com/bug?id=923cfc6c6348963f99886a0176ef11dcc429547b

While investigating this error, I discovered that multiple similar lock inversion scenarios can occur. Hence, this series addresses potential deadlocks for two classes of locks, one in each patch:

1. Fix potential deadlocks for &fown_struct.lock

2. Fix potential deadlock for &fasync_struct.fa_lock

v1 -> v2:
- Added WARN_ON_ONCE(irqs_disabled()) before calls to read_lock_irq, with elaboration in the commit message, as suggested by Jeff Layton.

Best wishes,
Desmond
