Subject: [patch 0/7] timekeeping: Decouple xtime_lock from xtime seqcount
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Sunday 13th November 2011 23:19:46 UTC (over 4 years ago)
xtime_lock which serializes the update of time relevant data
structures is held over a large code pathes which results in extended
seqlock contention times on the reader side. This series decouples the
lock from the seqcount and reduces the seqcount protected sections to
those which actually update the reader visible data.

Thanks,

	tglx
