net: mvneta: do not schedule in mvneta_tx_timeout
commit 290213667ab53a95456397763205e4b1e30f46b5 upstream. If a queue timeout is reported, we can oops because of some schedules while the caller is atomic, as shown below : mvneta d0070000.ethernet eth0: tx timeout BUG: scheduling while atomic: bash/1528/0x00000100 Modules linked in: slhttp_ethdiv(C) [last unloaded: slhttp_ethdiv] CPU: 2 PID: 1528 Comm: bash Tainted: G WC 3.13.0-rc4-mvebu-nf #180 [<c0011bd9>] (unwind_backtrace+0x1/0x98) from [<c000f1ab>] (show_stack+0xb/0xc) [<c000f1ab>] (show_stack+0xb/0xc) from [<c02ad323>] (dump_stack+0x4f/0x64) [<c02ad323>] (dump_stack+0x4f/0x64) from [<c02abe67>] (__schedule_bug+0x37/0x4c) [<c02abe67>] (__schedule_bug+0x37/0x4c) from [<c02ae261>] (__schedule+0x325/0x3ec) [<c02ae261>] (__schedule+0x325/0x3ec) from [<c02adb97>] (schedule_timeout+0xb7/0x118) [<c02adb97>] (schedule_timeout+0xb7/0x118) from [<c0020a67>] (msleep+0xf/0x14) [<c0020a67>] (msleep+0xf/0x14) from [<c01dcbe5>] (mvneta_stop_dev+0x21/0x194) [<c01dcbe5>] (mvneta_stop_dev+0x21/0x194) from [<c01dcfe9>] (mvneta_tx_timeout+0x19/0x24) [<c01dcfe9>] (mvneta_tx_timeout+0x19/0x24) from [<c024afc7>] (dev_watchdog+0x18b/0x1c4) [<c024afc7>] (dev_watchdog+0x18b/0x1c4) from [<c0020b53>] (call_timer_fn.isra.27+0x17/0x5c) [<c0020b53>] (call_timer_fn.isra.27+0x17/0x5c) from [<c0020cad>] (run_timer_softirq+0x115/0x170) [<c0020cad>] (run_timer_softirq+0x115/0x170) from [<c001ccb9>] (__do_softirq+0xbd/0x1a8) [<c001ccb9>] (__do_softirq+0xbd/0x1a8) from [<c001cfad>] (irq_exit+0x61/0x98) [<c001cfad>] (irq_exit+0x61/0x98) from [<c000d4bf>] (handle_IRQ+0x27/0x60) [<c000d4bf>] (handle_IRQ+0x27/0x60) from [<c000843b>] (armada_370_xp_handle_irq+0x33/0xc8) [<c000843b>] (armada_370_xp_handle_irq+0x33/0xc8) from [<c000fba9>] (__irq_usr+0x49/0x60) Ben Hutchings attempted to propose a better fix consisting in using a scheduled work for this, but while it fixed this panic, it caused other random freezes and panics proving that the reset sequence in the driver is unreliable and that additional fixes should be investigated. When sending multiple streams over a link limited to 100 Mbps, Tx timeouts happen from time to time, and the driver correctly recovers only when the function is disabled.
