[PATCH] fcoe: Don't hold rtnl_mutex in fcoe_update_src_mac

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


The rtnl_mutex was held to protect calls to dev_uc_add
and dev_uc_del. Holding rtnl is not required as those
functions make use of the netif_addr_lock* API to
protect the MAC changing.

This change fixes the following regression by removing
the rtnl usage when fcoe_update_src_mac is called.

 Possible unsafe locking scenario:

       CPU0                    CPU1
       ----                    ----
  lock(&fip->ctlr_mutex);
                               lock(rtnl_mutex);
                               lock(&fip->ctlr_mutex);
  lock(rtnl_mutex);
