debugobjects: fix lockdep warning
Daniel J Blueman reported: | ======================================================= | [ INFO: possible circular locking dependency detected ] | 2.6.26-rc5-201c #1 | ------------------------------------------------------- | nscd/3669 is trying to acquire lock: | (&n->list_lock){.+..}, at: [<ffffffff802bab03>] deactivate_slab+0x173/0x1e0 | | but task is already holding lock: | (&obj_hash[i].lock){++..}, at: [<ffffffff803fa56f>] | __debug_object_init+0x2f/0x350 | | which lock already depends on the new lock. There are two locks involved here; the first is a SLUB-local lock, and the second is a debugobjects-local lock. They are basically taken in two different orders: 1. SLUB { debugobjects { ... } } 2. debugobjects { SLUB { ... } } This patch changes pattern #2 by trying to fill the memory pool (e.g. the call into SLUB/kmalloc()) outside the debugobjects lock, so now the two patterns look like this: 1. SLUB { debugobjects { ... } } 2. SLUB { } debugobjects { ... } [ daniel.blueman@gmail.com: pool_lock needs to be taken irq safe in fill_pool ] Reported-by: Daniel J Blueman <daniel.blueman@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Vegard Nossum <vegard.nossum@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>
