Subject: [PATCH 0/4][RFC] jump label: introduce default true branch
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Wednesday 21st December 2011 19:09:01 UTC (over 4 years ago)
Hi Peter,

I've introduced a new static_branch_def_true() construct, such that the
straight
line path is the true branch, and we patch a jump to get to the false
branch.
In order to make jump_label_inc()/dec() work as 'make true'/'make false'
with
counting, I've had to update some of the core jump label code. This
patchset also
introduces: JUMP_LABEL_INIT_TRUE/FALSE, so that keys should be initialized
as:

struct jump_label_key true_key = JUMP_LABEL_INIT_TRUE;

           or

struct jump_label_key false_key = JUMP_LABEL_INIT_FALSE;

I think this patch series should address the issues that came up with
sched_feat()
implementation.

Thanks,

-Jason
