[PATCH] ACPIPHP: fix device destroying order issue in handling dock notification

From: Jiang Liu
Date: Tue Jun 11 2013 - 07:55:00 EST

Current ACPI glue logic expects that physical devices are destroyed
before destroying companion ACPI devices, otherwise it will break the
ACPI unbind logic and cause following warning messages:
[ 185.026073] usb usb5: Oops, 'acpi_handle' corrupt
[ 185.035150] pci 0000:1b:00.0: Oops, 'acpi_handle' corrupt
[ 185.035515] pci 0000:18:02.0: Oops, 'acpi_handle' corrupt
[ 180.013656] port1: Oops, 'acpi_handle' corrupt
Please refer to https://bugzilla.kernel.org/attachment.cgi?id=104321
for full log message.

Above warning messages are caused by following scenario:
1) acpi_dock_notifier_call() queues a task (T1) onto kacpi_hotplug_wq
2) kacpi_hotplug_wq handles T1, which invokes acpi_dock_deferred_cb()
->dock_notify()-> handle_eject_request()->hotplug_dock_devices()
3) hotplug_dock_devices() first invokes registered hotplug callbacks to
destroy physical devices, then destroys all affected ACPI devices.
Everything seems perfect until now. But the acpiphp dock notification
handler will queue another task (T2) onto kacpi_hotplug_wq to really
destroy affected physical devices.
4) kacpi_hotplug_wq finishes T1, and all affected ACPI devices have
been destroyed.
5) kacpi_hotplug_wq handles T2, which destroys all affected physical

So it breaks the ACPI glue expection because ACPI devices are destroyed
in step 3 and physical devices are destroyed in step 5.

Hi all,
We are trying to solve bug https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=59501
And seems there are multiple bugs behind bug 59501. This draft patch tries to
fix one of those issues. I will send out form patchset once all issue have been
