[PATCH V3 0/2] handle polling errors

From: Jason Wang
Date: Sun Jan 06 2013 - 02:27:29 EST

This is an update version of last version to fix the handling of polling errors
in vhost/vhost_net.

Currently, vhost and vhost_net ignore polling errors which can lead kernel
crashing when it tries to remove itself from waitqueue after the polling
failure. Fix this by checking the poll->wqh before the removing and report an
error when meet polling errors.

Changes from v2:
- check poll->wqh instead of the wrong assumption about POLLERR and waitqueue
- drop the whole tx polling state check since it was replaced by the wqh
- drop the buggy tuntap patch

Changes from v1:
- restore the state before the ioctl when vhost_init_used() fails
- log the error when meet polling errors in the data path
- don't put into waitqueue when tun_chr_poll() return POLLERR

vhost_net: correct error handling in vhost_net_set_backend()
vhost: handle polling errors
