Subject: [PATCH] pci: endpoint: Replace mdelay with usleep_range in pci_epf_test_write
Date: Tue, 10 Apr 2018 21:04:06 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

pci_epf_test_write() is never called in atomic context.

The call chain ending up at pci_epf_test_write() is:
[1] pci_epf_test_write() <- pci_epf_test_cmd_handler()

pci_epf_test_cmd_handler() is set as a parameter of INIT_DELAYED_WORK() 
in pci_epf_test_probe().
This function is not called in atomic context.

Despite never getting called from atomic context, pci_epf_test_write()
calls mdelay() to busily wait.
This is not necessary and can be replaced with usleep_range() to
avoid busy waiting.

This is found by a static analysis tool named DCNS written by myself.
And I also manually check it.
