Subject: Re: ARM/gic-v4: deadlock occurred

Hi Marc,

The issue only occurs after applying the vlpi_map_rework patches, and we 
can see the patches only affect VM; it changes its_create_device() a 
little so it may affect host booting in some ways, so I took the lazy 
way to send it out for some insights.

I am suspecting below code; if alloc_lpis == false, what will happen? 
Anyway, I will investigate more on this.


	if  (alloc_lpis)  {
		lpi_map  =  its_lpi_alloc(nvecs,  &lpi_base,  &nr_lpis);
		if  (lpi_map)
			col_map  =  kcalloc(nr_lpis,  sizeof(*col_map),
					GFP_KERNEL);
	}  else  {
		col_map  =  kcalloc(nr_ites,  sizeof(*col_map),  GFP_KERNEL);
		nr_lpis  =  0;
		lpi_base  =  0;
	}
	if  (its->is_v4)
		vlpi_map  =  kcalloc(nr_lpis,  sizeof(*vlpi_map),  GFP_KERNEL);

	if  (!dev  ||  !itt  ||   !col_map  ||  (!lpi_map  &&  alloc_lpis)  ||
	(!vlpi_map  &&  its->is_v4))  {
		kfree(dev);
		kfree(itt);
		kfree(lpi_map);
		kfree(col_map);
		kfree(vlpi_map);
		return  NULL;
	}


Thanks,

Heyi
