[PATCH 4.14 150/173] scsi: libfc: fixup sleeping function called from invalid context

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Mon Sep 24 2018 - 08:26:49 EST

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


From: Hannes Reinecke <hare@xxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit fa519f701d27198a2858bb108fc18ea9d8c106a7 ]

fc_rport_login() will be calling mutex_lock() while running inside an
RCU-protected section, triggering the warning 'sleeping function called
from invalid context'. To fix this we can drop the rcu functions here
altogether as the disc mutex protecting the list itself is already held,
preventing any list manipulation.
