[PATCH 3.16 190/306] virtio: console: Unlock vqs while freeing buffers

From: Ben Hutchings
Date: Wed Feb 15 2017 - 19:31:20 EST

3.16.40-rc1 review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Matt Redfearn <matt.redfearn@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit 34563769e438d2881f62cf4d9badc4e589ac0ec0 upstream.

Commit c6017e793b93 ("virtio: console: add locks around buffer removal
in port unplug path") added locking around the freeing of buffers in the
vq. However, when free_buf() is called with can_sleep = true and rproc
is enabled, it calls dma_free_coherent() directly, requiring interrupts
to be enabled. Currently a WARNING is triggered due to the spin locking
around free_buf, with a call stack like this:

WARNING: CPU: 3 PID: 121 at ./include/linux/dma-mapping.h:433

Fix this by restructuring the loops to allow the locks to only be taken
where it is necessary to protect the vqs, and release it while the
buffer is being freed.
