[PATCH 4.2.y-ckt 146/218] rapidio/rionet: fix deadlock on SMP

From: Kamal Mostafa
Date: Thu Mar 31 2016 - 16:44:27 EST

4.2.8-ckt7 -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Aurelien Jacquiot <a-jacquiot@xxxxxx>

commit 36915976eca58f2eefa040ba8f9939672564df61 upstream.

Fix deadlocking during concurrent receive and transmit operations on SMP
platforms caused by the use of incorrect lock: on transmit 'tx_lock'
spinlock should be used instead of 'lock' which is used for receive

This fix is applicable to kernel versions starting from v2.15.
