watchdog: Fix disable/enable regression
Commit 8d4516904b39 ("watchdog: Fix CPU hotplug regression") causes an oops or hard lockup when doing echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/nmi_watchdog echo 1 > /proc/sys/kernel/nmi_watchdog and the kernel is booted with nmi_watchdog=1 (default) Running laptop-mode-tools and disconnecting/connecting AC power will cause this to trigger, making it a common failure scenario on laptops. Instead of bailing out of watchdog_disable() when !watchdog_enabled we can initialize the hrtimer regardless of watchdog_enabled status. This makes it safe to call watchdog_disable() in the nmi_watchdog=0 case, without the negative effect on the enabled => disabled => enabled case. All these tests pass with this patch: - nmi_watchdog=1 echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/nmi_watchdog echo 1 > /proc/sys/kernel/nmi_watchdog - nmi_watchdog=0 echo 0 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online - nmi_watchdog=0 echo mem > /sys/power/state Bugzilla: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=51661 Cc: <stable@vger.kernel.org> # v3.7 Cc: Norbert Warmuth <nwarmuth@t-online.de> Cc: Joseph Salisbury <joseph.salisbury@canonical.com> Cc: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de> Signed-off-by: Bjørn Mork <bjorn@mork.no> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
