genirq: Get rid of unnecessary IRQTF_DIED flag
Currently IRQTF_DIED flag is set when a IRQ thread handler calls do_exit() But also PF_EXITING per process flag gets set when a thread exits. This fix eliminates the duplicate by using PF_EXITING flag. Also, there is a race condition in exit_irq_thread(). In case a thread's bit is cleared in desc->threads_oneshot (and the IRQ line gets unmasked), but before IRQTF_DIED flag is set, a new interrupt might come in and set just cleared bit again, this time forever. This fix throws IRQTF_DIED flag away, eliminating the race as a result. [ tglx: Test THREAD_EXITING first as suggested by Oleg ] Reported-by: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Alexander Gordeev <agordeev@redhat.com> Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/20120309135958.GD2114@dhcp-26-207.brq.redhat.com Signed-off-by: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>
