[PATCH 4.9 24/31] net/mlx4: Fix irq-unsafe spinlock usage




4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Jack Morgenstein <jackm@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit d546b67cda015fb92bfee93d5dc0ceadb91deaee ]

spin_lock/unlock was used instead of spin_un/lock_irq
in a procedure used in process space, on a spinlock
which can be grabbed in an interrupt.

This caused the stack trace below to be displayed (on kernel
4.17.0-rc1 compiled with Lock Debugging enabled):

[  154.661474] WARNING: SOFTIRQ-safe -> SOFTIRQ-unsafe lock order detected

[  154.682706] modprobe/10159 [HC0[0]:SC0[0]:HE0:SE1] is trying to acquire:

[  154.700927]
and this task is already holding:

[  154.718028] which would create a new lock dependency:
[  154.723705]  (&(&cq->lock)->rlock/1){....} -> (&(&qp_table->lock)->rlock){+.+.}
[  154.731922]
but this new dependency connects a SOFTIRQ-irq-safe lock:
[  154.740798]  (&(&cq->lock)->rlock){..-.}
[  154.740800]
... which became SOFTIRQ-irq-safe at:
[  154.752163]   _raw_spin_lock_irqsave+0x3e/0x50
[  154.757163]   mlx4_ib_poll_cq+0x36/0x900 [mlx4_ib]
[  154.762554]   ipoib_tx_poll+0x4a/0xf0 [ib_ipoib]
...
to a SOFTIRQ-irq-unsafe lock:
[  154.815603]  (&(&qp_table->lock)->rlock){+.+.}
[  154.815604]
... which became SOFTIRQ-irq-unsafe at:
[  154.827718] ...
[  154.827720]   _raw_spin_lock+0x35/0x50
[  154.833912]   mlx4_qp_lookup+0x1e/0x50 [mlx4_core]
[  154.839302]   mlx4_flow_attach+0x3f/0x3d0 [mlx4_core]

Since mlx4_qp_lookup() is called only in process space, we can
simply replace the spin_un/lock calls with spin_un/lock_irq calls.
