Subject: [PATCH 1/3] kernel/workqueue: Remove lockdep annotation from __flush_work()
Date: Thu, 25 Oct 2018 08:05:38 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20181025150540.259281-2-bvanassche@acm.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20181025150540.259281-1-bvanassche@acm.org>

As documented in a comment in start_flush_work(), calling flush_work()
from a multi-threaded workqueue is safe if that workqueue is not
equipped with a rescuer. Avoid that flush_work() calls from inside a
work item executing on such a queue trigger a lockdep complaint. Remove
the lockdep annotation from __flush_work() because start_flush_work()
already has such an annotation.

Fixes: 87915adc3f0a ("workqueue: re-add lockdep dependencies for flushing")
