Build Update for ovsrobot/ovs

Build: #3527
Status: Broken

Duration: 20 mins and 9 secs

Message: dpif-netdev: Replace port mutex by rwlock

The port mutex protects the netdev mapping, that can be changed by port
addition or port deletion. HW offloads operations can be considered read
operations on the port mapping itself. Use a rwlock to differentiate
between read and write operations, allowing concurrent queries and
offload insertions.

Because offload queries, deletion, and reconfigure_datapath() calls are
all rdlock, the deadlock fixed by [1] is still avoided, as the rdlock
side is recursive as prescribed by the POSIX standard. Executing
'reconfigure_datapath()' only requires a rdlock taken, but it is sometimes
executed in contexts where wrlock is taken ('do_add_port()' and

This means that the deadlock described in [2] is still valid and should
be mitigated. The rdlock is taken using 'tryrdlock()' during offload query,
keeping the current behavior.

[1]: 81e89d5c2645 ("dpif-netdev: Make datapath port mutex recursive.")

[2]: 12d0edd75eba ("dpif-netdev: Avoid deadlock with offloading during PMD
     thread deletion.").
