pid: fix lockdep deadlock warning due to ucount_lock
========================================================= [ INFO: possible irq lock inversion dependency detected ] 4.10.0-rc2-00024-g4aecec9-dirty #118 Tainted: G W --------------------------------------------------------- swapper/1/0 just changed the state of lock: (&(&sighand->siglock)->rlock){-.....}, at: [<ffffffffbd0a1bc6>] __lock_task_sighand+0xb6/0x2c0 but this lock took another, HARDIRQ-unsafe lock in the past: (ucounts_lock){+.+...} and interrupts could create inverse lock ordering between them. other info that might help us debug this: Chain exists of: &(&sighand->siglock)->rlock --> &(&tty->ctrl_lock)->rlock --> ucounts_lock Possible interrupt unsafe locking scenario: CPU0 CPU1 ---- ---- lock(ucounts_lock); local_irq_disable(); lock(&(&sighand->siglock)->rlock); lock(&(&tty->ctrl_lock)->rlock); <Interrupt> lock(&(&sighand->siglock)->rlock); *** DEADLOCK *** This patch removes a dependency between rlock and ucount_lock.
