3.13.11.1 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Marek Vasut <marex at denx.de>

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:
  (&irq_desc_lock_class){-.-...}, at: [<c00685f0>] __irq_get_desc_lock+0x48/0x88

 but task is already holding lock:
  (&irq_desc_lock_class){-.-...}, at: [<c00685f0>] __irq_get_desc_lock+0x48/0x88

 other info that might help us debug this:
  Possible unsafe locking scenario:

        CPU0
        ----
   lock(&irq_desc_lock_class);
   lock(&irq_desc_lock_class);

  *** DEADLOCK ***

  May be due to missing lock nesting notation
