tick: Fix tick_broadcast_pending_mask not cleared
The recent modification in the cpuidle framework consolidated the timer broadcast code across the different drivers by setting a new flag in the idle state. It tells the cpuidle core code to enter/exit the broadcast mode for the cpu when entering a deep idle state. The broadcast timer enter/exit is no longer handled by the back-end driver. This change made the local interrupt to be enabled *before* calling CLOCK_EVENT_NOTIFY_EXIT. On a tegra114, a four cores system, when the flag has been introduced in the driver, the following warning appeared: WARNING: at kernel/time/tick-broadcast.c:578 tick_broadcast_oneshot_control CPU: 2 PID: 0 Comm: swapper/2 Not tainted 3.10.0-rc3-next-20130529+ #15 [<c00667f8>] (tick_broadcast_oneshot_control+0x1a4/0x1d0) from [<c0065cd0>] (tick_notify+0x240/0x40c) [<c0065cd0>] (tick_notify+0x240/0x40c) from [<c0044724>] (notifier_call_chain+0x44/0x84) [<c0044724>] (notifier_call_chain+0x44/0x84) from [<c0044828>] (raw_notifier_call_chain+0x18/0x20) [<c0044828>] (raw_notifier_call_chain+0x18/0x20) from [<c00650cc>] (clockevents_notify+0x28/0x170) [<c00650cc>] (clockevents_notify+0x28/0x170) from [<c033f1f0>] (cpuidle_idle_call+0x11c/0x168) [<c033f1f0>] (cpuidle_idle_call+0x11c/0x168) from [<c000ea94>] (arch_cpu_idle+0x8/0x38) [<c000ea94>] (arch_cpu_idle+0x8/0x38) from [<c005ea80>] (cpu_startup_entry+0x60/0x134) [<c005ea80>] (cpu_startup_entry+0x60/0x134) from [<804fe9a4>] (0x804fe9a4) I don't have the hardware, so I wasn't able to reproduce the warning but after looking a while at the code, I deduced the following: 1. the CPU2 enters a deep idle state and sets the broadcast timer 2. the timer expires, the tick_handle_oneshot_broadcast function is called, setting the tick_broadcast_pending_mask and waking up the idle cpu CPU2 3. the CPU2 exits idle handles the interrupt and then invokes tick_broadcast_oneshot_control with CLOCK_EVENT_NOTIFY_EXIT which runs the following code: [...] if (dev->next_event.tv64 == KTIME_MAX) goto out; if (cpumask_test_and_clear_cpu(cpu, tick_broadcast_pending_mask)) goto out; [...] So if there is no next event scheduled for CPU2, we fulfil the first condition and jump out without clearing the tick_broadcast_pending_mask. 4. CPU2 goes to deep idle again and calls tick_broadcast_oneshot_control with CLOCK_NOTIFY_EVENT_ENTER but with the tick_broadcast_pending_mask set for CPU2, triggering the warning. The issue only surfaced due to the modifications of the cpuidle framework, which resulted in interrupts being enabled before the call to the clockevents code. If the call happens before interrupts have been enabled, the warning cannot trigger, because there is still the event pending which caused the broadcast timer expiry. Move the check for the next event below the check for the pending bit, so the pending bit gets cleared whether an event is scheduled on the cpu or not.
