Subject: Re: [PATCH] Bluetooth: hci_uart: Fix a race for write_work scheduling

Hi Claire,

> In hci_uart_write_work, there is a loop/goto checking the value of
> HCI_UART_TX_WAKEUP. If HCI_UART_TX_WAKEUP is set again, it keeps trying
> hci_uart_dequeue; otherwise, it clears HCI_UART_SENDING and returns.
> In hci_uart_tx_wakeup, if HCI_UART_SENDING is already set, it sets
> HCI_UART_TX_WAKEUP, skips schedule_work and assumes the running/pending
> hci_uart_write_work worker will do hci_uart_dequeue properly.
> However, if the HCI_UART_SENDING check in hci_uart_tx_wakeup is done after
> the loop breaks, but before HCI_UART_SENDING is cleared in
> hci_uart_write_work, the schedule_work is skipped incorrectly.
> Fix this race by changing the order of HCI_UART_SENDING and
> HCI_UART_TX_WAKEUP modification.
> Fixes: 1da177e4c3f4 ("Linux-2.6.12-rc2")
> Fixes: 82f5169bf3d3 ("Bluetooth: hci_uart: add serdev driver support library")
