[PATCH 4.20 24/65] driver core: Add missing dev->bus->need_parent_lock checks

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


From: Rafael J. Wysocki <rafael.j.wysocki@xxxxxxxxx>

commit e121a833745b4708b660e3fe6776129c2956b041 upstream.

__device_release_driver() has to check dev->bus->need_parent_lock
before dropping the parent lock and acquiring it again as it may
attempt to drop a lock that hasn't been acquired or lock a device
that shouldn't be locked and create a lock imbalance.

Fixes: 8c97a46af04b (driver core: hold dev's parent lock when needed)
