The commit 0619317ff8ba ("block: add polled wakeup task helper")
replaced wake_up_process() with blk_wake_io_task() in
end_swap_bio_read() which triggers a crash when running heavy swapping
workloads.

[T114538] kernel BUG at kernel/sched/core.c:3462!
[T114538] Process oom01 (pid: 114538, stack limit = 0x000000004f40e0c1)

This is because shortly after set_special_state(TASK_DEAD),
end_swap_bio_read() is called from an interrupt handler that revive the
task state to TASK_RUNNING causes __schedule() to return and trip the
BUG() later.

Before the offensive commit, wake_up_process() will prevent this from
happening by taking the pi_lock and bail out immediately if TASK_DEAD is
set.

if (!(p->state & TASK_NORMAL))
	goto out;

Nice description, thanks.

And...  ouch.  blk_wake_io_task() is a scary thing - changing a task to
TASK_RUNNING state from interrupt context.  I wonder whether the
assumptions which that is making hold true in all situations even after
this change.

Is polled block IO important enough for doing this stuff?

That will be needing a cc:stable, no?

Andrew, you missed the improved patch, you were CC'ed on that one too
and I queued it up a few hours ago:

http://git.kernel.dk/cgit/linux-block/commit/?h=for-linus&id=6f3ead091fe2a8fb57a5996fe8b94237a896c6e9

Please drop this one.

Also added that when I did.
