Subject: [PATCH v3] staging: r8188eu: fix scheduling while atomic bugs
Date: Thu, 19 Aug 2021 11:24:23 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

These allocations are sometimes done under a spin lock so they
have to be atomic. The function call tree is:

-> update_beacon() <- takes a spin lock
   -> update_BCNTIM()
      -> set_tx_beacon_cmd()

Fixes: 79f712ea994de ("staging: r8188eu: Remove wrappers for kalloc() and kzalloc()")
Signed-off-by: Michael Straube <>
