Hi Olof, Hi Kevin, Hi Arnd,

Please consider these third round of Renesas ARM based SoC fixes for v4.13.

This pull request is based on v4.12-rc1 rather than earlier fixes for v4.13
as it is unrelated to those fixes and their dependencies - arm64 DT updates
for R-Car Gen 3 SoCs.

This fix resolves a deadlock during boot on R-Car Gen 2 SoCs.
The bug has been present since v4.1-rc1 but does not manifest in
a deadlock until v4.13-rc1.


The following changes since commit 2ea659a9ef488125eb46da6eb571de5eae5c43f6:

  ARM: shmobile: rcar-gen2: Fix deadlock in regulator quirk (2017-07-29 10:32:52 +0200)

Third Round of Renesas ARM Based SoC Fixes for v4.13

Fix deadlock in regulator quirk for R-Car Gen 2 SoCs

The da9063/da9210 regulator quirk for R-Car Gen2 boards uses a bus
notifier, and unregisters the notifier when it is no longer needed.
However, a notifier must not be unregistered from within the call chain.

This bug went unnoticed, as blocking_notifier_chain_unregister() didn't
take the semaphore during early boot. This is no longer the case as of
upstream commit 1c3c5eab171590f8 ("sched/core: Enable might_sleep() and
smp_processor_id() checks early") and a deadlock occurs.

Pulled into fixes, thanks!
