[PATCH 4.4 01/16] powerpc/eeh: Fix deadlock when PE frozen state cant be cleared

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Tue Dec 13 2016 - 12:16:09 EST

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


From: Andrew Donnellan <andrew.donnellan@xxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 409bf7f8a02ef88db5a0f2cdcf9489914f4b8508 upstream.

In eeh_reset_device(), we take the pci_rescan_remove_lock immediately after
after we call eeh_reset_pe() to reset the PCI controller. We then call
eeh_clear_pe_frozen_state(), which can return an error. In this case, we
bail out of eeh_reset_device() without calling pci_unlock_rescan_remove().

Add a call to pci_unlock_rescan_remove() in the eeh_clear_pe_frozen_state()
error path so that we don't cause a deadlock later on.
