padata: use smp_mb in padata_reorder to avoid orphaned padata jobs
Testing padata with the tcrypt module on a 5.2 kernel... # modprobe tcrypt alg="pcrypt(rfc4106(gcm(aes)))" type=3 # modprobe tcrypt mode=211 sec=1 ...produces this splat: INFO: task modprobe:10075 blocked for more than 120 seconds. Not tainted 5.2.0-base+ #16 modprobe D 0 10075 10064 0x80004080 Call Trace: ? __schedule+0x4dd/0x610 ? ring_buffer_unlock_commit+0x23/0x100 schedule+0x6c/0x90 schedule_timeout+0x3b/0x320 ? trace_buffer_unlock_commit_regs+0x4f/0x1f0 wait_for_common+0x160/0x1a0 ? wake_up_q+0x80/0x80 { crypto_wait_req } # entries in braces added by hand { do_one_aead_op } { test_aead_jiffies } test_aead_speed.constprop.17+0x681/0xf30 [tcrypt] do_test+0x4053/0x6a2b [tcrypt] ? 0xffffffffa00f4000 tcrypt_mod_init+0x50/0x1000 [tcrypt] ... The second modprobe command never finishes because in padata_reorder, CPU0's load of reorder_objects is executed before the unlocking store in spin_unlock_bh(pd->lock), causing CPU0 to miss CPU1's increment: CPU0 CPU1 padata_reorder padata_do_serial LOAD reorder_objects // 0 INC reorder_objects // 1 padata_reorder TRYLOCK pd->lock // failed UNLOCK pd->lock CPU0 deletes the timer before returning from padata_reorder and since no other job is submitted to padata, modprobe waits indefinitely. Add a pair of full barriers to guarantee proper ordering: CPU0 CPU1 padata_reorder padata_do_serial UNLOCK pd->lock smp_mb() LOAD reorder_objects INC reorder_objects smp_mb__after_atomic() padata_reorder TRYLOCK pd->lock smp_mb__after_atomic is needed so the read part of the trylock operation comes after the INC, as Andrea points out. Thanks also to Andrea for help with writing a litmus test.
