2010-04-07rwsem generic spinlock: use IRQ save/restore spinlocksKevin Hilman1-6/+8
rwsems can be used with IRQs disabled, particularily in early boot before IRQs are enabled. Currently the spin_unlock_irq() usage in the slow-patch will unconditionally enable interrupts and cause problems since interrupts are not yet initialized or enabled. This patch uses save/restore versions of IRQ spinlocks in the slowpath to ensure interrupts are not unintentionally disabled.

2009-12-15rwsem: fix rwsem_is_locked() bugsAmerigo Wang1-0/+13
rwsem_is_locked() tests ->activity without locks, so we should always keep ->activity consistent. However, the code in __rwsem_do_wake() breaks this rule, it updates ->activity after _all_ readers waken up, this may give some reader a wrong ->activity value, thus cause rwsem_is_locked() behaves wrong. Quote from Andrew: " - we have one or more processes sleeping in down_read(), waiting for access. - we wake one or more processes up without altering ->activity - they start to run and they do rwsem_is_locked(). This incorrectly returns "false", because the waker process is still crunching away in __rwsem_do_wake(). - the waker now alters ->activity, but it was too late. " So we need get a spinlock to protect this. And rwsem_is_locked() should not block, thus we use spin_trylock_irqsave().

2009-12-15rwsem-spinlock: remove useless function exportsAmerigo Wang1-9/+1
These functions need not to be exported, since no drivers should use them. __init_rwsem() is an exception, because init_rwsem(), which is a macro, is used.

2006-10-11Lockdep: add lockdep_set_class_and_subclass() and lockdep_set_subclass()Peter Zijlstra1-1/+1
This annotation makes it possible to assign a subclass on lock init. This annotation is meant to reduce the _nested() annotations by assigning a default subclass. One could do without this annotation and rely on lockdep_set_class() exclusively, but that would require a manual stack of struct lock_class_key objects.

Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
