Subject: [PATCH 00/27] Generic framework for SMP booting/CPU hotplug related code
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel.cross-arch
Date: Friday 1st June 2012 09:10:03 UTC (over 5 years ago)
This patchset is an effort to reduce the SMP booting/CPU hotplug related
code
duplication in various architectures and pull them out into core code.
Consolidating the code at one place makes it more maintainable and less
error-prone.

There is still a lot of opportunity to pull out more stuff from the arch/
directories into core code than what this patchset does, but this does the
ground-work on top of which we can make more and more code generic.

This applies on top of tip tree's smp/hotplug branch + Yong's ipi_call_lock
cleanup patches[1].

The patch descriptions of some of the arch/ patches contain a section
called
"Notes" which documents some of the non-trivial changes implemented in that
patch. This section is to help bring maintainer attention to those code
pieces so that if its wrong for that arch, they can point it out and I'll
work on fixing it.


Acknowledgements:
----------------

Thanks a lot to Paul McKenney for his guidance and for consolidating a
comprehensive list of what needs to be done to make CPU Hotplug better [2]
and [3]. Many thanks to Peter Zijlstra for complaining about the code
duplication in various architectures and pointing out what is missing and
what needs to be worked on.

Also, many thanks to Thomas Gleixner for his initiative to make smp booting
generic and sane, and for his whole bunch of cleanups in that direction.
I hope this patchset can contribute to that effort :-)
