connector: create connector workqueue only while needed once
The netlink connector uses its own workqueue to relay the datas sent from userspace to the appropriate callback. If you launch the test from Documentation/connector and change it a bit to send a high flow of data, you will see thousands of events coming to the "cqueue" workqueue by looking at the workqueue tracer. This flow of events can be sent very quickly. So, to not encumber the kevent workqueue and delay other jobs, the "cqueue" workqueue should remain. But this workqueue is pointless most of the time, it will always be created (assuming you have built it of course) although only developpers with specific needs will use it. So avoid this "most of the time useless task", this patch proposes to create this workqueue only when needed once. The first jobs to be sent to connector callbacks will be sent to kevent while the "cqueue" thread creation will be scheduled to kevent too. The following jobs will continue to be scheduled to keventd until the cqueue workqueue is created, and then the rest of the jobs will continue to perform as usual, through this dedicated workqueue. Each time I tested this patch, only the first event was sent to keventd, the rest has been sent to cqueue which have been created quickly. Also, this patch fixes some trailing whitespaces on the connector files. Signed-off-by: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com> Acked-by: Evgeniy Polyakov <zbr@ioremap.net> Signed-off-by: David S.
