[PATCH 4/6] drivers/staging: convert nested spin_lock_irqsave to spin_lock

Julia Lawall julia at diku.dk
Sat Jul 18 15:25:30 UTC 2009


From: Julia Lawall <julia at diku.dk>

If spin_lock_irqsave is called twice in a row with the same second
argument, the interrupt state at the point of the second call overwrites
the value saved by the first call.  Indeed, the second call does not need
to save the interrupt state, so it is changed to a simple spin_lock.

The semantic match that finds this problem is as follows:
(http://www.emn.fr/x-info/coccinelle/)

// <smpl>
@@
expression lock1,lock2;
expression flags;
@@

*spin_lock_irqsave(lock1,flags)
... when != flags
*spin_lock_irqsave(lock2,flags)
// </smpl>
