Description Jia-Ju Bai 2017-06-24 03:21:48 UTC
The driver may sleep under a mutex, and the function call path is:
xl_resume [acquire the mutex]
  xl_init_locked
    xl_list_rx_init
      bus_dmamap_create(BUS_DMA_WAITOK) --> may sleep

The possible fix of this bug is to replace the "BUS_DMA_WAITOK" in bus_dmamap_create with "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.
