[PATCH 4.19 024/118] s390/ism: clear dmbe_mask bit before SMC IRQ handling

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Tue Dec 11 2018 - 10:54:51 EST

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


[ Upstream commit 007b656851ed7f94ba0fa358ac3e5d7705da6846 ]

SMC-D stress workload showed connection stalls. Since the firmware
decides to skip raising an interrupt if the SBA DMBE mask bit is
still set, this SBA DMBE mask bit should be cleared before the
IRQ handling in the SMC code runs. Otherwise there are small windows
possible with missing interrupts for incoming data.
SMC-D currently does not care about the old value of the SBA DMBE
