Tejun,

I just noticed this commit:

commit 8c71778cbf2c8beaefaa2dee5478aa0622d96682
Author: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org>
Date:   Fri Dec 24 16:14:20 2010 +0100

    media/video: don't use flush_scheduled_work()
    
    This patch converts the remaining users of flush_scheduled_work() in
    media/video.
    
    * bttv-input.c and cx23885-input.c don't use workqueue at all.  No
      need to flush.
[...]


The cx23885 driver does in fact schedule work for IR input handling:

Here's where it is scheduled for CX23888 chips:

http://git.linuxtv.org/media_tree.git?a=blob;f=drivers/media/video/cx23885/cx23885-ir.c;h=7125247dd25558678c823ee3262675570c9aa630;hb=HEAD#l76

Here's where it is scheduled for CX23885 chips:

http://git.linuxtv.org/media_tree.git?a=blob;f=drivers/media/video/cx23885/cx23885-core.c;h=359882419b7f588b7c698dbcfb6a39ddb1603301;hb=HEAD#l1861


The two different chips are handled slightly differently because

a. the CX23888 IR unit is accessable via a PCI register block.  The IR
IRQ can be acknowledged with direct PCI register accesses in an
interrupt context, and the IR pulse FIFO serviced later in a workqueue
context.

b. the CX23885 IR unit is accessed over an I2C bus.  The CX23885 A/V IRQ
has to be masked in an interrupt context (with PCI registers accesses).
Then the CX23885 A/V unit's IR IRQ is ack'ed over I2C in a workqueue
context and the IR pulse FIFO is also serviced over I2C in a workqueue
context.


So what should be done about the flush_scheduled_work()?  I think it
belongs there.

Regards,
Andy

Convert to using threaded irq?

Or

1. Just flush the work items explicitly using flush_work_sync().

2. Create a dedicated workqueue to serve as flushing domain.

The first would look like the following.  Does this look correct?

Thanks.

There's a lot of indirection in drivers under drivers/media/video so it
doesn't surprise me when someone misses something.

(BTW, I only checked cx23885 since I wrote the IR handling and added the
work queue usage for IR that driver.)

Too big of a regression testing job for me to take on at the moment.

That will do for now.

I have gotten reports of the IR Rx FIFO overflows for the CX23885 IR Rx
unit (the I2C connected one).  I eventually should either set the Rx
FIFO service interrupt watermark down from 4 measurments to 1
measurment, or use a kthread_worker with some higher priority to respond
to the IR Rx FIFO service interrupt.

Yes, your patch below looks sane to me.

Hmmm... please consider playing with WQ_HIGHPRI before going forward
with dedicated thread.

Commit 8c71778c (media/video: don't use flush_scheduled_work())
dropped flush_scheduled_work() from cx23885_input_ir_stop()
incorrectly assuming that it didn't use any work item; however,
cx23885_dev makes use of three work items - cx25840_work and
ir_{r|t}x_work.

Make cx23885_input_ir_stop() sync flush all three work items before
returning.
