[PATCH] dmaengine: mediatek: Fix deadlock caused by synchronize_irq()

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


The synchronize_irq(c->irq) will not return until the IRQ handler
mtk_uart_apdma_irq_handler() is completed. If the synchronize_irq()
holds a spin_lock and waits the IRQ handler to complete, but the
IRQ handler also needs the same spin_lock. The deadlock will happen.
The process is shown below:

          cpu0                        cpu1
mtk_uart_apdma_device_pause() | mtk_uart_apdma_irq_handler()
  spin_lock_irqsave()         |
                              |   spin_lock_irqsave()
  //hold the lock to wait     |
  synchronize_irq()           |

This patch reorders the synchronize_irq(c->irq) outside the spin_lock
in order to mitigate the bug.
