[PATCH 4.9 061/130] clocksource/exynos_mct: Clear interrupt when cpu is shut down

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Tue Jan 24 2017 - 03:01:32 EST

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


From: Joonyoung Shim <jy0922.shim@xxxxxxxxxxx>

commit bc7c36eedb0c7004aa06c2afc3c5385adada8fa3 upstream.

When a CPU goes offline a potentially pending timer interrupt is not
cleared. When the CPU comes online again then the pending interrupt is
delivered before the per cpu clockevent device is initialized. As a
consequence the tick interrupt handler dereferences a NULL pointer.

[ 51.251378] Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000040
[ 51.289348] task: ee942d00 task.stack: ee960000
[ 51.293861] PC is at tick_periodic+0x38/0xb0
[ 51.298102] LR is at tick_handle_periodic+0x1c/0x90

Clear the pending interrupt in the cpu dying path.
