    sched/stop_machine: Fix deadlock between multiple stop_two_cpus() · b17718d0
    Peter Zijlstra authored
    Jiri reported a machine stuck in multi_cpu_stop() with
    migrate_swap_stop() as function and with the following src,dst cpu
    pairs: {11,  4} {13, 11} { 4, 13}
                            4       11      13
    cpuM: queue(4 ,13)
    cpuN: queue(13,11)
                                    *N      Na
                            *M              Mb
    cpuO: queue(11, 4)
                            *O      Oa
    Where *X denotes the cpu running the queueing of cpu-X and X[ab] denotes
    the first/second queued work.
    You'll observe the top of the workqueue for each cpu: 4,11,13 to be work
    from cpus: M, O, N resp. IOW. deadlock.
    Do away with the queueing trickery and introduce lg_double_lock() to
    lock both CPUs and fully serialize the stop_two_cpus() callers instead
    of the partial (and buggy) serialization we have now.
