[PATCH 3.10 12/56] powerpc/rtas: Introduce rtas_get_sensor_fast() for IRQ handlers

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Tue Sep 29 2015 - 10:04:23 EST

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


From: Thomas Huth <thuth@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit 1c2cb594441d02815d304cccec9742ff5c707495 upstream.

The EPOW interrupt handler uses rtas_get_sensor(), which in turn
uses rtas_busy_delay() to wait for RTAS becoming ready in case it
is necessary. But rtas_busy_delay() is annotated with might_sleep()
and thus may not be used by interrupts handlers like the EPOW handler!
This leads to the following BUG when CONFIG_DEBUG_ATOMIC_SLEEP is

BUG: sleeping function called from invalid context at arch/powerpc/kernel/rtas.c:496

Fix this issue by introducing a new rtas_get_sensor_fast() function
that does not use rtas_busy_delay() - and thus can only be used for
sensors that do not cause a BUSY condition - known as "fast" sensors.

The EPOW sensor is defined to be "fast" in sPAPR - mpe.
