ieee80211_rx_napi() has a check to ensure that it is invoked in softirq
context / with BH disabled. It is there because it invokes
netif_receive_skb() which has this requirement.
On -RT this check does not work as expected so there is always this
warning.
Tree wide there are two users of this check: ieee80211_rx_napi() and
ieee802154_rx(). This approach introduces assert_in_softirq() which does
the check if lockdep is enabled. This check could then become a nop on
-RT.

As an alternative netif_receive_skb() (or ieee80211_rx_napi() could do
local_bh_disable() / local_bh_enable() unconditionally. The _disable()
part is very cheap. The _enable() part is more expensive because it
includes a function call. We could avoid that jump in the likely case
when BH was already disabled by something like:

 static inline void local_bh_enable(void)
 {
         if (softirq_count() == SOFTIRQ_DISABLE_OFFSET)
                 __local_bh_enable_ip(_THIS_IP_, SOFTIRQ_DISABLE_OFFSET);
         else
                 preempt_count_sub(SOFTIRQ_DISABLE_OFFSET);
 }

Which would make bh_enable() cheaper for everyone.

Instead of directly warn on wrong context, check if softirq context is
set. This check could be a nop on RT.

From: Anna-Maria Gleixner <anna-maria@linutronix.de>

The warning in ieee802154_rx() and ieee80211_rx_napi() is there to ensure
the softirq context for the subsequent netif_receive_skb() call. The check
could be moved into the netif_receive_skb() function to prevent all calling
functions implement the checks on their own. Use the lockdep variant for
softirq context check. While at it, add a lockdep based check for irq
enabled as mentioned in the comment above netif_receive_skb().

That's not in fact what it does though; so while that might indeed be
the intent that's not what it does.

It was introduced in commit d20ef63d3246 ("mac80211: document
ieee80211_rx() context requirement"):

    mac80211: document ieee80211_rx() context requirement
    
    ieee80211_rx() must be called with softirqs disabled
    since the networking stack requires this for netif_rx()
    and some code in mac80211 can assume that it can not
    be processing its own tasklet and this call at the same
    time.
    
    It may be possible to remove this requirement after a
    careful audit of mac80211 and doing any needed locking
    improvements in it along with disabling softirqs around
    netif_rx(). An alternative might be to push all packet
    processing to process context in mac80211, instead of
    to the tasklet, and add other synchronisation.

softirqs disabled, ack that is exactly what it checks.

But afaict the assertion you introduced tests that we are _in_ softirq
context, which is not the same.

indeed, now it clicked. Given what I wrote in the cover letter would you
be in favour of (a proper) lockdep_assert_BH_disabled() or the cheaper
local_bh_enable() (assuming the network folks don't mind the cheaper
version)?

Depends a bit on what the code wants I suppose. If the code is in fact
fine with the stronger in-softirq assertion, that'd be best. Otherwise I
don't object to a lockdep_assert_bh_disabled() to accompany the
lockdep_assert_irq_disabled() we already have either.

BTW., going by the hardirq variant nomenclature:

        lockdep_assert_irqs_enabled();

... the proper name would not be lockdep_assert_BH_disabled(), but:

        lockdep_assert_softirqs_disabled();
