[PATCH 4.14 015/126] cpu/hotplug: Prevent state corruption on error rollback

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Mon Sep 17 2018 - 19:02:15 EST

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


From: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 69fa6eb7d6a64801ea261025cce9723d9442d773 upstream.

When a teardown callback fails, the CPU hotplug code brings the CPU back to
the previous state. The previous state becomes the new target state. The
rollback happens in undo_cpu_down() which increments the state
unconditionally even if the state is already the same as the target.

As a consequence the next CPU hotplug operation will start at the wrong
state. This is easily to observe when __cpu_disable() fails.

Prevent the unconditional undo by checking the state vs. target before
incrementing state and fix up the consequently wrong conditional in the
unplug code which handles the failure of the final CPU take down on the
control CPU side.
