Subject: [PATCH] mac80211: fix race in ieee80211_register_hw()
commit 52e04b4ce5d03775b6a78f3ed1097480faacc9fd upstream.
A race condition leading to a kernel crash is observed during invocation
of ieee80211_register_hw() on a dragonboard410c device having wcn36xx
driver built as a loadable module along with a wifi manager in user-space
waiting for a wifi device (wlanX) to be active.
Sequence diagram for a particular kernel crash scenario:
user-space ieee80211_register_hw() ieee80211_tasklet_handler()
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
| | |
|<---phy0----wiphy_register() |
|-----iwd if_add---->| |
| |<---IRQ----(RX packet)
| Kernel crash |
| due to unallocated |
| workqueue. |
| | |
| alloc_ordered_workqueue() |
| | |
| Misc wiphy init. |
| | |
| ieee80211_if_add() |
| | |
As evident from above sequence diagram, this race condition isn't specific
to a particular wifi driver but rather the initialization sequence in
ieee80211_register_hw() needs to be fixed. So re-order the initialization
sequence and the updated sequence diagram would look like:
user-space ieee80211_register_hw() ieee80211_tasklet_handler()
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
| | |
| alloc_ordered_workqueue() |
| | |
| Misc wiphy init. |
| | |
|<---phy0----wiphy_register() |
|-----iwd if_add---->| |
| |<---IRQ----(RX packet)
| | |
| ieee80211_if_add() |
| | |
