Subject: [PATCHv6 0/7] printk: use printk_safe to handle printk() recursive calls
Date: Wed, 21 Dec 2016 23:35:58 +0900	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20161221143605.2272-1-sergey.senozhatsky@gmail.com> (raw)

Hello,

        This patch set extends a lock-less NMI per-cpu buffers idea to
handle recursive printk() calls. The basic mechanism is pretty much the
same -- at the beginning of a deadlock-prone section we switch to lock-less
printk callback, and return back to a default printk implementation at the
end; the messages are getting flushed to a logbuf buffer from a safer
context.

Deadlock scenarios that printk_safe can handle:

a) printk recursion from logbuf_lock spin_lock section in printk()
  printk()
    raw_spin_lock(&logbuf_lock);
    WARN_ON(1);
    raw_spin_unlock(&logbuf_lock);

b) printk from sem->lock spin_lock section
  printk()
    console_trylock()
      down_trylock()
        raw_spin_lock_irqsave(&sem->lock, flags);
        WARN_ON(1);
        raw_spin_unlock_irqrestore(&sem->lock, flags);

c) printk from logbuf_lock spin_lock section in console_unlock()
  printk()
    console_unlock()
      raw_spin_lock(&logbuf_lock);
      WARN_ON(1);
      raw_spin_unlock(&logbuf_lock);

d) printk from ->pi_lock from semaphore up
  printk()
    console_unlock()
      up()
        try_to_wake_up()
          raw_spin_lock_irqsave(&p->pi_lock, flags);
          WARN_ON(1);
          raw_spin_unlock_irqrestore(&p->pi_lock, flags);

e) printk from console_cont_flush() /*and down the call chain */
  printk()
    console_unlock()
      call_console_drivers()
       ...
          WARN_ON(1);

v6:
-- re-based
-- addressed Petr's review (added comments; moved lost accounting to seq buf)

v5:
-- some style clean-ups and renamings (Petr)
-- use deferred printk when flush nmi/safe messages (Petr)

v4:
-- addressed Steven's review points
-- use printk_safe in console_cont_flush()

v3: (review by Petr)
-- renamed to printk_safe
-- !NMI config build fix
-- report lost messages for both printk_sae and printk_nmi
-- dropped recursion reporting patch
-- etc.

v2:
-- fix build error on !NMI configs, reported by Fengguang
-- reworked the series based on Petr's feedback
-- added a new patch to drop zap_locks()

Sergey Senozhatsky (7):
  printk: use vprintk_func in vprintk()
  printk: rename nmi.c and exported api
  printk: introduce per-cpu safe_print seq buffer
  printk: always use deferred printk when flush printk_safe lines
  printk: report lost messages in printk safe/nmi contexts
  printk: use printk_safe buffers in printk
  printk: remove zap_locks() function
