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


From: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@xxxxxxxxxxx>

commit ef0491ea17f8019821c7e9c8e801184ecf17f85a upstream.

The introduction of switch_mm_irqs_off() brought back an old bug
regarding the use of preempt_enable_no_resched:

As part of:

62b94a08da1b ("sched/preempt: Take away preempt_enable_no_resched() from modules")

the definition of preempt_enable_no_resched() is only available in
built-in code, not in loadable modules, so we can't generally use
it from header files.

However, the ARM version of finish_arch_post_lock_switch()
calls preempt_enable_no_resched() and is defined as a static
inline function in asm/mmu_context.h. This in turn means we cannot
include asm/mmu_context.h from modules.

With today's tip tree, asm/mmu_context.h gets included from
linux/mmu_context.h, which is normally the exact pattern one would
expect, but unfortunately, linux/mmu_context.h can be included from
the vhost driver that is a loadable module, now causing this compile
time error with modular configs:

In file included from ../include/linux/mmu_context.h:4:0,
from ../drivers/vhost/vhost.c:18:
../arch/arm/include/asm/mmu_context.h: In function 'finish_arch_post_lock_switch':
../arch/arm/include/asm/mmu_context.h:88:3: error: implicit declaration of function 'preempt_enable_no_resched' [-Werror=implicit-function-declaration]

Andy already tried to fix the bug by including linux/preempt.h
from asm/mmu_context.h, but that didn't help. Arnd suggested reordering
the header files, which wasn't popular, so let's use this
workaround instead:

The finish_arch_post_lock_switch() definition is now also hidden
inside of #ifdef MODULE, so we don't see anything referencing
preempt_enable_no_resched() from a header file. I've built a
few hundred randconfig kernels with this, and did not see any
new problems.
