parentrxrpc: Fix service call disconnection (diff)
rxrpc: Fix call RCU cleanup using non-bh-safe locks
rxrpc_rcu_destroy_call(), which is called as an RCU callback to clean up a put call, calls rxrpc_put_connection() which, deep in its bowels, takes a number of spinlocks in a non-BH-safe way, including rxrpc_conn_id_lock and local->client_conns_lock. RCU callbacks, however, are normally called from softirq context, which can cause lockdep to notice the locking inconsistency. To get lockdep to detect this, it's necessary to have the connection cleaned up on the put at the end of the last of its calls, though normally the clean up is deferred. This can be induced, however, by starting a call on an AF_RXRPC socket and then closing the socket without reading the reply. Fix this by having rxrpc_rcu_destroy_call() punt the destruction to a workqueue if in softirq-mode and defer the destruction to process context. Note that another way to fix this could be to add a bunch of bh-disable annotations to the spinlocks concerned - and there might be more than just those two - but that means spending more time with BHs disabled. Note also that some of these places were covered by bh-disable spinlocks belonging to the rxrpc_transport object, but these got removed without the _bh annotation being retained on the next lock in.
