Subject: [PATCH RESEND] mm: fix tick_sched timer blocked by pgdat_resize_lock
Date: Fri, 10 Jan 2020 17:30:53 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20200110093053.34777-1-shile.zhang@linux.alibaba.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200110082510.172517-2-shile.zhang@linux.alibaba.com>

When 'CONFIG_DEFERRED_STRUCT_PAGE_INIT' is set, 'pgdat_resize_lock'
will be called inside 'pgdatinit' kthread to initialise the deferred
pages with local interrupts disabled. Which is introduced by
commit 3a2d7fa8a3d5 ("mm: disable interrupts while initializing deferred
pages").

But 'pgdatinit' kthread is possible be pined on the boot CPU (CPU#0 by
default), especially in small system with NRCPUS <= 2. In this case, the
interrupts are disabled on boot CPU during memory initialising, which
caused the tick_sched timer be blocked, leading to wall clock stuck.

Fixes: commit 3a2d7fa8a3d5 ("mm: disable interrupts while initializing
deferred pages")
