hrtimer: Don't reinitialize a cpu_base lock on CPU_UP
The current code makes the assumption that a cpu_base lock won't be held if the CPU corresponding to that cpu_base is offline, which isn't always true. If a hrtimer is not queued, then it will not be migrated by migrate_hrtimers() when a CPU is offlined. Therefore, the hrtimer's cpu_base may still point to a CPU which has subsequently gone offline if the timer wasn't enqueued at the time the CPU went down. Normally this wouldn't be a problem, but a cpu_base's lock is blindly reinitialized each time a CPU is brought up. If a CPU is brought online during the period that another thread is performing a hrtimer operation on a stale hrtimer, then the lock will be reinitialized under its feet, and a SPIN_BUG() like the following will be observed: <0>[ 28.082085] BUG: spinlock already unlocked on CPU#0, swapper/0/0 <0>[ 28.087078] lock: 0xc4780b40, value 0x0 .magic: dead4ead, .owner: <none>/-1, .owner_cpu: -1 <4>[ 42.451150] [<c0014398>] (unwind_backtrace+0x0/0x120) from [<c0269220>] (do_raw_spin_unlock+0x44/0xdc) <4>[ 42.460430] [<c0269220>] (do_raw_spin_unlock+0x44/0xdc) from [<c071b5bc>] (_raw_spin_unlock+0x8/0x30) <4>[ 42.469632] [<c071b5bc>] (_raw_spin_unlock+0x8/0x30) from [<c00a9ce0>] (__hrtimer_start_range_ns+0x1e4/0x4f8) <4>[ 42.479521] [<c00a9ce0>] (__hrtimer_start_range_ns+0x1e4/0x4f8) from [<c00aa014>] (hrtimer_start+0x20/0x28) <4>[ 42.489247] [<c00aa014>] (hrtimer_start+0x20/0x28) from [<c00e6190>] (rcu_idle_enter_common+0x1ac/0x320) <4>[ 42.498709] [<c00e6190>] (rcu_idle_enter_common+0x1ac/0x320) from [<c00e6440>] (rcu_idle_enter+0xa0/0xb8) <4>[ 42.508259] [<c00e6440>] (rcu_idle_enter+0xa0/0xb8) from [<c000f268>] (cpu_idle+0x24/0xf0) <4>[ 42.516503] [<c000f268>] (cpu_idle+0x24/0xf0) from [<c06ed3c0>] (rest_init+0x88/0xa0) <4>[ 42.524319] [<c06ed3c0>] (rest_init+0x88/0xa0) from [<c0c00978>] (start_kernel+0x3d0/0x434) As an example, this particular crash occurred when hrtimer_start() was executed on CPU #0. The code locked the hrtimer's current cpu_base corresponding to CPU #1. CPU #0 then tried to switch the hrtimer's cpu_base to an optimal CPU which was online. In this case, it selected the cpu_base corresponding to CPU #3. Before it could proceed, CPU #1 came online and reinitialized the spinlock corresponding to its cpu_base. Thus now CPU #0 held a lock which was reinitialized. When CPU #0 finally ended up unlocking the old cpu_base corresponding to CPU #1 so that it could switch to CPU #3, we hit this SPIN_BUG() above while in switch_hrtimer_base(). CPU #0 CPU #1 ---- ---- ... <offline> hrtimer_start() lock_hrtimer_base(base #1) ... init_hrtimers_cpu() switch_hrtimer_base() ... ... raw_spin_lock_init(&cpu_base->lock) raw_spin_unlock(&cpu_base->lock) ... <spin_bug> Solve this by statically initializing the lock.
