net: phy: fix potential race in the phylib state machine
Russell reported the following race in the phylib state machine (quoting from his mail): if (phy_polling_mode(phydev) && phy_is_started(phydev)) phy_queue_state_machine(phydev, PHY_STATE_TIME); state = PHY_UP thread 0 thread 1 phy_disconnect() +-phy_is_started() phy_is_started() | `-phy_stop() +-phydev->state = PHY_HALTED `-phy_stop_machine() `-cancel_delayed_work_sync() phy_queue_state_machine() `-mod_delayed_work() At this point, the phydev->state_queue() has been added back onto the system workqueue despite phy_stop_machine() having been called and cancel_delayed_work_sync() called on it. Fix this by protecting the complete operation in thread 0.
