2006-07-03[PATCH] lockdep: prove mutex locking correctnessIngo Molnar1-1/+1
Use the lock validator framework to prove mutex locking correctness. Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Signed-off-by: Arjan van de Ven <arjan@linux.intel.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2006-07-03[PATCH] lockdep: better lock debuggingIngo Molnar1-12/+5
Generic lock debugging: - generalized lock debugging framework. For example, a bug in one lock subsystem turns off debugging in all lock subsystems. - got rid of the caller address passing (__IP__/__IP_DECL__/etc.) from the mutex/rtmutex debugging code: it caused way too much prototype hackery, and lockdep will give the same information anyway. - ability to do silent tests - check lock freeing in vfree too. - more finegrained debugging options, to allow distributions to turn off more expensive debugging features. There's no separate 'held mutexes' list anymore - but there's a 'held locks' stack within lockdep, which unifies deadlock detection across all lock classes. (this is independent of the lockdep validation stuff - lockdep first checks whether we are holding a lock already) Here are the current debugging options: CONFIG_DEBUG_MUTEXES=y CONFIG_DEBUG_LOCK_ALLOC=y which do: config DEBUG_MUTEXES bool "Mutex debugging, basic checks" config DEBUG_LOCK_ALLOC bool "Detect incorrect freeing of live mutexes" Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Signed-off-by: Arjan van de Ven <arjan@linux.intel.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2006-07-03[PATCH] lockdep: rename DEBUG_WARN_ON()Ingo Molnar1-1/+1
Rename DEBUG_WARN_ON() to the less generic DEBUG_LOCKS_WARN_ON() name, so that it's clear that this is a lock-debugging internal mechanism. Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2006-06-26[PATCH] work around ppc64 bootup bug by making mutex-debugging save/restore irqsIngo Molnar1-2/+4
It seems ppc64 wants to lock mutexes in early bootup code, with interrupts disabled, and they expect interrupts to stay disabled, else they crash. Work around this bug by making mutex debugging variants save/restore irq flags.

2006-01-09[PATCH] mutex subsystem, coreIngo Molnar1-0/+35
mutex implementation, core files: just the basic subsystem, no users of it. Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Signed-off-by: Arjan van de Ven <arjan@infradead.org>
