cgroup: fix invalid rcu dereference
Commit ad676077a2ae ("device_cgroup: convert device_cgroup internally to policy + exceptions") removed rcu locks which are needed in task_devcgroup called in this chain: devcgroup_inode_mknod OR __devcgroup_inode_permission -> __devcgroup_inode_permission -> task_devcgroup -> task_subsys_state -> task_subsys_state_check. Change the code so that task_devcgroup is safely called with rcu read lock held. =============================== [ INFO: suspicious RCU usage. ] 3.6.0-rc5-next-20120913+ #42 Not tainted ------------------------------- include/linux/cgroup.h:553 suspicious rcu_dereference_check() usage! other info that might help us debug this: rcu_scheduler_active = 1, debug_locks = 0 2 locks held by kdevtmpfs/23: #0: (sb_writers){.+.+.+}, at: [<ffffffff8116873f>] mnt_want_write+0x1f/0x50 #1: (&sb->s_type->i_mutex_key#3/1){+.+.+.}, at: [<ffffffff811558af>] kern_path_create+0x7f/0x170 stack backtrace: Pid: 23, comm: kdevtmpfs Not tainted 3.6.0-rc5-next-20120913+ #42 Call Trace: lockdep_rcu_suspicious+0xfd/0x130 devcgroup_inode_mknod+0x19d/0x240 vfs_mknod+0x71/0xf0 handle_create.isra.2+0x72/0x200 devtmpfsd+0x114/0x140 ? handle_create.isra.2+0x200/0x200 kthread+0xd6/0xe0 kernel_thread_helper+0x4/0x10 Signed-off-by: Jiri Slaby <jslaby@suse.cz> Cc: Dave Jones <davej@redhat.com> Cc: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org> Cc: Li Zefan <lizefan@huawei.com> Cc: James Morris <jmorris@namei.org> Cc: Pavel Emelyanov <xemul@openvz.org> Acked-by: Serge Hallyn <serge.hallyn@canonical.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
