Re: [PATCH 1/2] [SCSI] pm8001: Fix bogus interrupt state flag issue.

NAK

In the fragment below, the 'spin_lock_irqsave(&t->task_state_lock, flags);' is 100% legitimate. The change you did was not inert, and result in the IRQ being disabled upon exit should a SAS_TASK_STATE_ABORTED task state condition occur.

I propose (annotated below) you leave the flags automatic variable, but uninitialized. The changes surrounding spin_*lock_irq*(&pm8001_ha->lock, flags) are OK, but revert back the changes surrounding the spin_*lock_irq*(&t->task->state_lock,flags) so that lock would be properly nested.

To be pedantic, and to be more correct, this code should have spawned a work queue task to perform the t->task_done(t) operation in a separate thread rather than inline and precariously unlocked; but that would be beyond the scope of these changes and should be left for future work to decide if it is even necessary. Not sure how such a change would affect performance (using the work queue) ... so I am 'afraid' of pushing such a change in any case given the relatively reliable operation of this driver (and the dynamic nature of the changes Dan is making to the SATA side of things for instance ;-} ).

I am sorry for taking so long to get to the task of reviewing this (and the previous) code. I look forward to your comments.
