sysfs: Disable lockdep for driver bind/unbind files
[ Upstream commit 4f4b374332ec0ae9c738ff8ec9bed5cd97ff9adc ] This is the much more correct fix for my earlier attempt at: https://lkml.org/lkml/2018/12/10/118 Short recap: - There's not actually a locking issue, it's just lockdep being a bit too eager to complain about a possible deadlock. - Contrary to what I claimed the real problem is recursion on kn->count. Greg pointed me at sysfs_break_active_protection(), used by the scsi subsystem to allow a sysfs file to unbind itself. That would be a real deadlock, which isn't what's happening here. Also, breaking the active protection means we'd need to manually handle all the lifetime fun. - With Rafael we discussed the task_work approach, which kinda works, but has two downsides: It's a functional change for a lockdep annotation issue, and it won't work for the bind file (which needs to get the errno from the driver load function back to userspace). - Greg also asked why this never showed up: To hit this you need to unregister a 2nd driver from the unload code of your first driver. I guess only gpus do that. The bug has always been there, but only with a recent patch series did we add more locks so that lockdep built a chain from unbinding the snd-hda driver to the acpi_video_unregister call.
