[PATCH] vhost-vdpa: log warning message if vhost_vdpa_remove gets blocked

Posted by Gautam Dawar 1 week, 2 days ago
From: Gautam Dawar <gdawar@xilinx.com>

If some module invokes vdpa_device_unregister (usually in the module
unload function) when the userspace app (eg. QEMU) which had opened
the vhost-vdpa character device is still running, vhost_vdpa_remove()
function will block indefinitely in call to wait_for_completion().

This causes the vdpa_device_unregister caller to hang and with a
usual side-effect of rmmod command not returning when this call
is in the module_exit function.

This patch converts the wait_for_completion call to its timeout based
counterpart (wait_for_completion_timeout) and also adds a warning
message to alert the user/administrator about this hang situation.

To eventually fix this problem, a mechanism will be required to let
vhost-vdpa module inform the userspace of this situation and
userspace will close the descriptor of vhost-vdpa char device.
This will enable vhost-vdpa to continue with graceful clean-up.
