[PATCH 4.18 050/197] workqueue: re-add lockdep dependencies for flushing

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


From: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg@xxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 87915adc3f0acdf03c776df42e308e5a155c19af ]

In flush_work(), we need to create a lockdep dependency so that
the following scenario is appropriately tagged as a problem:


    flush_work(&work); // or cancel_work_sync(&work);

This is a problem since the work might be running and be blocked
on trying to acquire the mutex.

Similarly, in flush_workqueue().

These were removed after cross-release partially caught these
problems, but now cross-release was reverted anyway. IMHO the
removal was erroneous anyway though, since lockdep should be
able to catch potential problems, not just actual ones, and
cross-release would only have caught the problem when actually
invoking wait_for_completion().

Fixes: fd1a5b04dfb8 ("workqueue: Remove now redundant lock acquisitions wrt. workqueue flushes")
