So, we could change the if(cpu == dying) statement into a BUG_ON().
Let's please move this to a separate patch and use WARN_ON_ONCE()
2. cmci_rediscover() used set_cpus_allowed_ptr() to change the current process's
running cpu, and migrate itself to the dest cpu. But worker processes are not
allowed to be migrated. If current is a worker, the worker will be migrated to
another cpu, but the corresponding worker_pool is still on the original cpu.
In this case, the following BUG_ON in try_to_wake_up_local() will be triggered:
BUG_ON(rq != this_rq());
This will cause the kernel panic.
This patch removes the set_cpus_allowed_ptr() call, and put the cmci rediscover
jobs onto all the other cpus using system_wq. This could bring some delay for
After separating out the fix part into a separate patch, please add
The change looks correct to me but fails to apply to the current
