> This is to fix an issue of sleeping in atomic context when processing
> hotplug notifications in Exynos MCT(Multi-Core Timer).
> The issue was reproducible on Exynos 3250 (Rinato board) and Exynos 5420
> (Arndale Octa board).
> Whilst testing cpu hotplug events on kernel configured with DEBUG_PREEMPT
> and DEBUG_ATOMIC_SLEEP we get following BUG message, caused by calling
> request_irq() and free_irq() in the context of hotplug notification
> (which is in this case atomic context).

> Clockevent irqs cannot be requested/freed every time cpu is

> that signals hotplug or unplug events are sent with both preemption
> and local interrupts disabled. Since request_irq() may sleep it is
> moved to the initialization stage and performed for all possible
> cpus prior putting them online. Then, in the case of hotplug event
> the irq asociated with the given cpu will simply be enabled.
> Similarly on cpu unplug event the interrupt is not freed but just
> Note that after successful request_irq() call for a clockevent device
> associated to given cpu the requested irq is disabled (via disable_irq()).
> That is to make things symmetric as we expect hotplug event as a next
> thing (which will enable irq again). This should not pose any problems
> because at the time of requesting irq the clockevent device is not
> fully initialized yet, therefore should not produce interrupts at that point.
> For disabling an irq at cpu unplug notification disable_irq_nosync() is
> chosen which is a non-blocking function. This again shouldn't be a problem as
> prior sending CPU_DYING notification interrupts are migrated away
> from the cpu.
