      tty: Avoid dropping ldisc_mutex over hangup tty re-initialization · 0b5759c6
      Linus Torvalds authored
      A couple of people have hit the WARN_ON() in drivers/char/tty_io.c,
      tty_open() that is unhappy about seeing the tty line discipline go away
      during the tty hangup. See for example
      and the reason is that we do the tty_ldisc_halt() outside the
      ldisc_mutex in order to be able to flush the scheduled work without a
      deadlock with vhangup_work.
      However, it turns out that we can solve this particular case by
       - using "cancel_delayed_work_sync()" in tty_ldisc_halt(), which waits
         for just the particular work, rather than synchronizing with any
         random outstanding pending work.
         This won't deadlock, since the buf.work we synchronize with doesn't
         care about the ldisc_mutex, it just flushes the tty ldisc buffers.
       - realize that for this particular case, we don't need to wait for any
         hangup work, because we are inside the hangup codepaths ourselves.
      so as a result we can just drop the flush_scheduled_work() entirely, and
      then move the tty_ldisc_halt() call to inside the mutex.  That way we
      never expose the partially torn down ldisc state to tty_open(), and hold
      the ldisc_mutex over the whole sequence.

      m32r: Fix IPI function calls for SMP · 0a3d31b7
      Toshihiro HANAWA authored
      This patch fixes the m32r SMP kernel after 2.6.27.
      A part of the following patch breaks m32r SMP operation.
      > m32r: convert to generic helpers for IPI function calls
      > commit 7b7426c8
      In the above patch, a CALL_FUNC_SINGLE_IPI was newly introduced,
      but the its IPI vector number was wrong in the patch code.
      The m32r SMP kernel hanged-up during boot operation, because
      the CPU_BOOT_IPI was called instead of CALL_FUNC_SINGLE_IPI
      (CPU_BOOT_IPI had no side effect at that time because the 2nd
      core had already been started up),
      as a result, csd_unlock() was not called, then a dead lock
      occurred in csd_lock_wait() after the detection of Compact Flash
      memory as IDE generic disk.
