rxrpc: Lock around calling a kernel service Rx notification
Place a spinlock around the invocation of call->notify_rx() for a kernel service call and lock again when ending the call and replace the notification pointer with a pointer to a dummy function. This is required because it's possible for rxrpc_notify_socket() to be called after the call has been ended by the kernel service if called from the asynchronous work function rxrpc_process_call(). However, rxrpc_notify_socket() currently only holds the RCU read lock when invoking ->notify_rx(), which means that the afs_call struct would need to be disposed of by call_rcu() rather than by kfree(). But we shouldn't see any notifications from a call after calling rxrpc_kernel_end_call(), so a lock is required in rxrpc code. Without this, we may see the call wait queue as having a corrupt spinlock: BUG: spinlock bad magic on CPU#0, kworker/0:2/1612 general protection fault: 0000 [#1] SMP ...

The address of the offending afs_call is in R12, plus the offset to the spinlock. Signed-off-by: David Howells <>
