[PATCH v3 0/6] pci-hyper: Fix race condition bugs for fast device hotplug

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


Before the guest finishes probing a device, the host may be already starting
to remove the device. Currently there are multiple race condition bugs in the
pci-hyperv driver, which can cause the guest to panic.  The patchset fixes
the crashes.

The patchset also does some cleanup work: patch 3 removes the useless
hv_pcichild_state, and patch 4 reverts an old patch which is not really
useful (without patch 4, it would be hard to make patch 5 clean).

Patch 6 removes the use of a global mutex lock, and enables async-probing
to allow concurrent device probing for faster boot.

v3 is based on v6.3-rc5. No code change since v2. I just added Michael's
and Long Li's Reviewed-by.

The patchset is also availsble in my github branch:

v2 can be found here:

Please review. Thanks!
