Subject: [PATCH 5.0 166/238] powerpc/smp: Fix NMI IPI timeout

5.0-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Nicholas Piggin <npiggin@...il.com>

commit 1b5fc84aba170bdfe3533396ca9662ceea1609b7 upstream.

The NMI IPI timeout logic is broken, if __smp_send_nmi_ipi() times out
on the first condition, delay_us will be zero which will send it into
the second spin loop with no timeout so it will spin forever.

Fixes: 5b73151fff63 ("powerpc: NMI IPI make NMI IPIs fully sychronous")
Cc: stable@...r.kernel.org # v4.19+
