[PATCH 4.4 035/105] lib/vsprintf: Remove atomic-unsafe support for %pCr

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Sun Jul 01 2018 - 14:25:37 EST

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


From: Geert Uytterhoeven <geert+renesas@xxxxxxxxx>

commit 666902e42fd8344b923c02dc5b0f37948ff4f225 upstream.

"%pCr" formats the current rate of a clock, and calls clk_get_rate().
The latter obtains a mutex, hence it must not be called from atomic

Remove support for this rarely-used format, as vsprintf() (and e.g.
printk()) must be callable from any context.

Any remaining out-of-tree users will start seeing the clock's name
printed instead of its rate.
