2014-08-07klist: use same naming scheme as hlist for klist_add_after()Ken Helias1-3/+3
The name was modified from hlist_add_after() to hlist_add_behind() when adjusting the order of arguments to match the one with klist_add_after(). This is necessary to break old code when it would use it the wrong way. Make klist follow this naming scheme for consistency. Signed-off-by: Ken Helias <kenhelias@firemail.de> Cc: "Paul E.

2013-05-21klist: del waiter from klist_remove_waiters before wakeup waitting processwang, biao1-1/+1
There is a race between klist_remove and klist_release. klist_remove uses a local var waiter saved on stack. When klist_release calls wake_up_process(waiter->process) to wake up the waiter, waiter might run immediately and reuse the stack. Then, klist_release calls list_del(&waiter->list) to change previous wait data and cause prior waiter thread corrupt. The patch fixes it against kernel 3.9.

2012-03-07lib: reduce the use of module.h wherever possiblePaul Gortmaker1-1/+1
For files only using THIS_MODULE and/or EXPORT_SYMBOL, map them onto including export.h -- or if the file isn't even using those, then just delete the include. Fix up any implicit include dependencies that were being masked by module.h along the way. Signed-off-by: Paul Gortmaker <paul.gortmaker@windriver.com>
2009-01-06driver core: Remove completion from struct klist_nodeMatthew Wilcox1-3/+40
Removing the completion from klist_node reduces its size from 64 bytes to 28 on x86-64. To maintain the semantics of klist_remove(), we add a single list of klist nodes which are pending deletion and scan them.

2008-10-09klist: don't iterate over deleted entriesTejun Heo1-26/+70
A klist entry is kept on the list till all its current iterations are finished; however, a new iteration after deletion also iterates over deleted entries as long as their reference count stays above zero. This causes problems for cases where there are users which iterate over the list while synchronized against list manipulations and natuarally expect already deleted entries to not show up during iteration. This patch implements dead flag which gets set on deletion so that iteration can skip already deleted entries. The dead flag piggy backs on the lowest bit of knode->n_klist and only visible to klist implementation proper. While at it, drop klist_iter->i_head as it's redundant and doesn't offer anything in semantics or performance wise as klist_iter->i_klist is dereferenced on every iteration anyway.

2008-04-30klist: implement klist_add_{after|before}()Tejun Heo1-0/+33
Add klist_add_after() and klist_add_before() which puts a new node after and before an existing node, respectively. This is useful for callers which need to keep klist ordered. Note that synchronizing between simultaneous additions for ordering is the caller's responsibility. Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <htejun@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@suse.de>
2006-09-26Driver core: Don't call put methods while holding a spinlockAlan Stern1-11/+15
The klist utility routines currently call _put methods while holding a spinlock. This is of course illegal; a put routine could try to unregister a device and hence need to sleep. No problems have arisen until now because in many cases klist removals were done synchronously, so the _put methods were never actually used. In other cases we may simply have been lucky. This patch (as784) reworks the klist routines so that _put methods are called only _after_ the klist's spinlock has been released.

2006-01-05[PATCH] klist: Fix broken kref counting in find functionsFrank Pavlic1-0/+2
The klist reference counting in the find functions that use klist_iter_init_node is broken. If the function (for example driver_find_device) is called with a NULL start object then everything is fine, the first call to next_device()/klist_next increases the ref-count of the first node on the list and does nothing for the start object which is NULL. If they are called with a valid start object then klist_next will decrement the ref-count for the start object but nobody has incremented it. Logical place to fix this would be klist_iter_init_node because the function puts a reference of the object into the klist_iter struct.

2005-09-08[PATCH] fix klist semantics for lists which have elements removed on traversalJames Bottomley1-1/+17
The problem is that klists claim to provide semantics for safe traversal of lists which are being modified. The failure case is when traversal of a list causes element removal (a fairly common case). The issue is that although the list node is refcounted, if it is embedded in an object (which is universally the case), then the object will be freed regardless of the klist refcount leading to slab corruption because the klist iterator refers to the prior element to get the next. The solution is to make the klist take and release references to the embedding object meaning that the embedding object won't be released until the list relinquishes the reference to it.

2005-09-05[PATCH] klist: fix klist to have the same klist_add semantics as list_headJames Bottomley1-4/+4
at the moment, the list_head semantics are list_add(node, head) whereas current klist semantics are klist_add(head, node) This is bound to cause confusion, and since klist is the newcomer, it should follow the list_head semantics.

2005-06-20[PATCH] Add initial implementation of klist helpers.mochel@digitalimplant.org1-0/+248
This klist interface provides a couple of structures that wrap around struct list_head to provide explicit list "head" (struct klist) and list "node" (struct klist_node) objects. For struct klist, a spinlock is included that protects access to the actual list itself. struct klist_node provides a pointer to the klist that owns it and a kref reference count that indicates the number of current users of that node in the list. The entire point is to provide an interface for iterating over a list that is safe and allows for modification of the list during the iteration (e.g. insertion and removal), including modification of the current node on the list. It works using a 3rd object type - struct klist_iter - that is declared and initialized before an iteration. klist_next() is used to acquire the next element in the list. It returns NULL if there are no more items.

Only when the count goes to 0 is the node removed from the list. klist_remove() will try to delete the node from the list and block until it is actually removed.
