[PATCH 0/2] Protect against iommu driver disconnect

From: Alex Williamson
Date: Thu Apr 25 2013 - 18:24:14 EST

Michael Tsirkin pointed out that file operations on /dev/vfio/vfio
dereference iommu_driver and iommu_data without a lock. If releasing
a group or unsetting the container occurs concurrently, we could race.
We currently use a mutex when setting this association, so we can
convert to a rwsem keeping the existing mutex critical sections as
down_writes and add down_reads where these are used. Thanks,



Alex Williamson (2):
vfio: Convert container->group_lock to rwsem
vfio: Use down_reads to protect iommu disconnects
