Subject: Re: [PATCH] atm/svc: Fix blocking in wait loop

From: chas williams - CONTRACTOR <>
Date: Tue, 12 Aug 2014 08:12:26 -0400

> One should not call blocking primitives inside a wait loop, since both
> require task_struct::state to sleep, so the inner will destroy the
> outer state.
> sigd_enq() will possibly sleep for alloc_skb().  Move sigd_enq() before
> prepare_to_wait() to avoid sleeping while waiting interruptibly.  You do
> not actually need to call sigd_enq() after the initial prepare_to_wait()
> because we test the termination condition before calling schedule().
> Based on suggestions from Peter Zijlstra.
