[PATCH] x86/xen: fix warning when running with nosmt mitigations

Posted by Brian Masney 3 weeks, 1 day ago
When booting a hyperthreaded system with the kernel parameter
'mitigations=auto,nosmt', the following warning occurs:

    WARNING: CPU: 0 PID: 1 at drivers/xen/events/events_base.c:1112 unbind_from_irqhandler+0x4e/0x60
    ...
    Hardware name: Xen HVM domU, BIOS 4.2.amazon 08/24/2006
    ...
    Call Trace:

     ? trace_suspend_resume+0x60/0x60

     ? rest_init+0xaa/0xaa
     kernel_init+0xa/0x106
     ret_from_fork+0x35/0x40

The secondary CPUs are not activated with the nosmt mitigations and only
the primary thread on each CPU core is used. In this situation,
xen_hvm_smp_prepare_cpus(), and more importantly xen_init_lock_cpu(), is
not called, so the lock_kicker_irq is not initialized for the secondary
CPUs. Let's fix this by exiting early in xen_uninit_lock_cpu() if the
irq is not set to avoid the warning from above for each secondary CPU.

As soon as I saw this on lore, I saw that I should have passed the irq
variable to unbind_from_irqhandler() rather than doing another per_cpu()
lookup. I'll wait for feedback about the general approach before posting
a v2.

This looks good. I'd shorten the comment though: your commit message already describes the scenario. And change the subject to something like "Don't unbind uninitialized lock_kicker_irq".
