[patch 18/46] pkt_sched: sch_htb: Fix deadlock in hrtimerstriggered by HTB

From: Greg KH
Date: Thu Jan 22 2009 - 20:20:51 EST

2.6.28-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


From: Jarek Poplawski <jarkao2@xxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit: none

This is a quick fix for -stable purposes. Upstream fixes these
problems via a large set of invasive hrtimer changes. ]

Most probably there is a (still unproven) race in hrtimers (before
2.6.29 kernels), which causes a corruption of hrtimers rbtree. This
patch doesn't fix it, but should let HTB avoid triggering the bug.
