debugobjects: fix lockdep warning
Daniel J. Blueman reported: > ======================================================= > [ INFO: possible circular locking dependency detected ] > 2.6.27-rc4-224c #1 > ------------------------------------------------------- > hald/4680 is trying to acquire lock: > (&n->list_lock){++..}, at: [<ffffffff802bfa26>] add_partial+0x26/0x80 > > but task is already holding lock: > (&obj_hash[i].lock){++..}, at: [<ffffffff8041cfdc>] > debug_object_free+0x5c/0x120 We fix it by moving the actual freeing to outside the lock (the lock now only protects the list). The pool lock is also promoted to irq-safe (suggested by Dan). It's necessary because free_pool is now called outside the irq disabled region. So we need to protect against an interrupt handler which calls debug_object_init(). [tglx@linutronix.de: added hlist_move_list helper to avoid looping through the list twice] Reported-by: Daniel J Blueman <daniel.blueman@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Vegard Nossum <vegard.nossum@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>
