This is a note to let you know that I have just added a patch titled

    gpio: mxs: Allow for recursive enable_irq_wake() call

to the linux-3.13.y-queue branch of the 3.13.y.z extended stable tree 
which can be found at:

 http://kernel.ubuntu.com/git?p=ubuntu/linux.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/linux-3.13.y-queue

This patch is scheduled to be released in version 3.13.11.1.

If you, or anyone else, feels it should not be added to this tree, please 
reply to this email.

Subject: gpio: mxs: Allow for recursive enable_irq_wake() call

commit a585f87c863e4e1d496459d382b802bf5ebe3717 upstream.

The scenario here is that someone calls enable_irq_wake() from somewhere
in the code. This will result in the lockdep producing a backtrace as can
be seen below. In my case, this problem is triggered when using the wl1271
(TI WlCore) driver found in drivers/net/wireless/ti/ .

The problem cause is rather obvious from the backtrace, but let's outline
the dependency. enable_irq_wake() grabs the IRQ buslock in irq_set_irq_wake(),
which in turns calls mxs_gpio_set_wake_irq() . But mxs_gpio_set_wake_irq()
calls enable_irq_wake() again on the one-level-higher IRQ , thus it tries to
grab the IRQ buslock again in irq_set_irq_wake() . Because the spinlock in
irq_set_irq_wake()->irq_get_desc_buslock()->__irq_get_desc_lock() is not
marked as recursive, lockdep will spew the stuff below.

We know we can safely re-enter the lock, so use IRQ_GC_INIT_NESTED_LOCK to
fix the spew.

 kworker/0:1/18 is trying to acquire lock:

 but task is already holding lock:

 other info that might help us debug this:
