Description Jia-Ju Bai 2017-06-18 03:31:31 UTC
The driver may sleep under a mutex, and the function call path in file "sys/dev/dpt/dpt_scsi.c" in FreeBSD 11.0 is:
dpt_init [line 1246: acquire the mutex]
  dptallocsgmap [line 1282]
    bus_dmamap_load(BUS_DMA_WAITOK) [line 323] --> may sleep

The possible fix of this bug is to set the last parameter in bus_dmamap_load to "BUS_DMA_NOWAIT".

This bug is found by a static analysis tool written by myself, and it is checked by my review of the FreeBSD code.

I have read the manual page of bus_dmamap_load.
This call will always return immediately and will not block for any reason.
Sorry for my wrong report, please ignore it.
