do not call blocking ops when !TASK_RUNNING; state=1 crash in usb driver kernel 4.4.38+


Hi,

I am observing the following crash logs at boot time only, in kernel 4.4.38+ after adding usb driver(gobinet from sierra wireless). With the same usb driver, in kernel 3.10.96 this crash issue is not observed. In scheduling header file, based on config_debug_atomic_sleep, the call of set_current_state function calls varies from kernel 4.4.38+ and kernel 3.10.96. After kernel boots up, when we try to disconnect and attach usb again, this crash is not observed. Could anyone please tell why this crash occurs only at boot time?

Crash logs are:

I would say the wireless device is trying to load before the firmware is loaded. The kernel has a generic firmware loader. If the system tries to load a module for a device that requires external firmware, before the generic firmware loader is loaded, it can trigger what you're getting.

I don't know of an easy way around that.
