Subject: Re: [PATCH net] net: systemport: Fix wake-up interrupt race during

> The AON_PM_L2 is normally used to trigger and identify the source of a
> wake-up event. Since the RX_SYS clock is no longer turned off, we also
> have an interrupt being sent to the SYSTEMPORT INTRL_2_0 controller, and
> that interrupt remains active up until the magic packet detector is
> disabled which happens much later during the driver resumption.
> The race happens if we have a CPU that is entering the SYSTEMPORT
> INTRL2_0 handler during resume, and another CPU has managed to clear the
> wake-up interrupt during bcm_sysport_resume_from_wol(). In that case, we
> have the first CPU stuck in the interrupt handler with an interrupt
> cause that has been cleared under its feet, and so we keep returning
> IRQ_NONE and we never make any progress.
> This was not a problem before because we would always turn off the
> RX_SYS clock during WoL, so the SYSTEMPORT INTRL2_0 would also be turned
> off as well, thus not latching the interrupt.
> The fix is to make sure we do not enable either the MPD or
> BRCM_TAG_MATCH interrupts since those are redundant with what the
> AON_PM_L2 interrupt controller already processes and they would cause
> such a race to occur.

Applied, thanks Florian.
