iwlwifi: fix dma mappings and skbs leak
Since commit commit 470058e0ad82fcfaaffd57307d8bf8c094e8e9d7 "iwlwifi: avoid Tx queue memory allocation in interface down" we do not unmap dma and free skbs when down device and there is pending transfer. What in consequence may cause that system hung (waiting for free skb's) when performing shutdown at iptables module unload. DMA leak manifest itself following warning: WARNING: at lib/dma-debug.c:689 dma_debug_device_change+0x15a/0x1b0() Hardware name: HP xw8600 Workstation pci 0000:80:00.0: DMA-API: device driver has pending DMA allocations while released from device [count=240] Modules linked in: iwlagn(-) aes_x86_64 aes_generic fuse cpufreq_ondemand acpi_cpufreq freq_table mperf xt_physdev ipt_REJECT nf_conntrack_ipv4 nf_defrag_ipv4 iptable_filter ip_tables ip6t_REJECT nf_conntrack_ipv6 nf_defrag_ipv6 xt_state nf_conntrack ip6table_filter ip6_tables ipv6 ext3 jbd dm_mirror dm_region_hash dm_log dm_mod uinput hp_wmi sparse_keymap sg wmi microcode serio_raw tg3 arc4 ecb shpchp mac80211 cfg80211 rfkill ext4 mbcache jbd2 sr_mod cdrom sd_mod crc_t10dif firewire_ohci firewire_core crc_itu_t mptsas mptscsih mptbase scsi_transport_sas pata_acpi ata_generic ata_piix ahci libahci floppy nouveau ttm drm_kms_helper drm i2c_algo_bit i2c_core video [last unloaded: iwlagn] Pid: 9131, comm: rmmod Tainted: G W 2.6.38-rc6-wl+ #33 Call Trace: [<ffffffff810649ef>] ? warn_slowpath_common+0x7f/0xc0 [<ffffffff81064ae6>] ? warn_slowpath_fmt+0x46/0x50 [<ffffffff812320ab>] ? dma_debug_device_change+0xdb/0x1b0 [<ffffffff8123212a>] ? dma_debug_device_change+0x15a/0x1b0 [<ffffffff8149dc18>] ? notifier_call_chain+0x58/0xb0 [<ffffffff8108e370>] ? __blocking_notifier_call_chain+0x60/0x90 [<ffffffff8108e3b6>] ? blocking_notifier_call_chain+0x16/0x20 [<ffffffff812f570c>] ? __device_release_driver+0xbc/0xe0 [<ffffffff812f5808>] ? driver_detach+0xd8/0xe0 [<ffffffff812f45d1>] ? bus_remove_driver+0x91/0x100 [<ffffffff812f6022>] ? driver_unregister+0x62/0xa0 [<ffffffff8123d5d4>] ? pci_unregister_driver+0x44/0xa0 [<ffffffffa05632d1>] ? iwl_exit+0x15/0x1c [iwlagn] [<ffffffff810ab492>] ? sys_delete_module+0x1a2/0x270 [<ffffffff81498da9>] ? trace_hardirqs_on_thunk+0x3a/0x3f [<ffffffff8100bf42>] ? system_call_fastpath+0x16/0x1b I still can observe above warning after apply patch, but it is very hard to reproduce it, and have count=1. Whereas that one is easy to reproduce using debugfs force_reset while transmitting data, and have very big counts eg. 240, like quoted here. So count=1 WARNING seems to be different issue that need to be resolved separately. v1 -> v2: fix infinity loop bug I made during "for" to "while" loop transition. v2 -> v3: remove unneeded EXPORT_SYMBOL Signed-off-by: Stanislaw Gruszka <> Acked-by: Wey-Yi Guy <> Signed-off-by: John W.
