fbdev: fix recursive notifier and locking when fbdev console is blanked
Krzysztof Helt [Fri, 3 Oct 2008 22:23:38 +0000 (15:23 -0700)]
Fix infinite recursive notifier in the fbdev layer.  This causes recursive
locking.  Dmitry Baryshkov found the problem and confirmed that the patch
fixes the bug.

After doing
# echo 1 > /sys/class/graphics/fb0/blank
I got the following in my kernel log:

=============================================
[ INFO: possible recursive locking detected ]
2.6.27-rc6-00086-gda63874-dirty #97
---------------------------------------------
echo/1564 is trying to acquire lock:
 ((fb_notifier_list).rwsem){..--}, at: [<c005a384>] __blocking_notifier_call_chain+0x38/0x6c

but task is already holding lock:
 ((fb_notifier_list).rwsem){..--}, at: [<c005a384>] __blocking_notifier_call_chain+0x38/0x6c

other info that might help us debug this:
2 locks held by echo/1564:
 #0:  (&buffer->mutex){--..}, at: [<c00ddde0>] sysfs_write_file+0x30/0x80
