ARM: 8222/1: mvebu: enable strex backoff delay
commit 995ab5189d1d7264e79e665dfa032a19b3ac646e upstream. Under extremely rare conditions, in an MPCore node consisting of at least 3 CPUs, two CPUs trying to perform a STREX to data on the same shared cache line can enter a livelock situation. This patch enables the HW mechanism that overcomes the bug. This fixes the incorrect setup of the STREX backoff delay bit due to a wrong description in the specification. Note that enabling the STREX backoff delay mechanism is done by leaving the bit *cleared*, while the bit was currently being set by the proc-v7.S code. [Thomas: adapt to latest mainline, slightly reword the commit log, add stable markers.] Fixes: de4901933f6d ("arm: mm: Add support for PJ4B cpu and init routines") Signed-off-by: Nadav Haklai <nadavh@marvell.com> Signed-off-by: Thomas Petazzoni <thomas.petazzoni@free-electrons.com> Acked-by: Gregory CLEMENT <gregory.clement@free-electrons.com> Acked-by: Jason Cooper <jason@lakedaemon.net> Signed-off-by: Russell King <rmk+kernel@arm.linux.org.uk> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>
