From: Peter Zijlstra <peterz <at> infradead.org>
Subject: [RFC][PATCH 0/5] preempt_count rework
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Wednesday 14th August 2013 13:15:39 UTC (over 3 years ago)
These patches optimize preempt_enable by firstly folding the preempt and
need_resched tests into one -- this should work for all architectures. And
secondly by providing per-arch preempt_count implementations; with x86
using
per-cpu preempt_count for fastest access.

These patches have so far only been compiled for defconfig-x86_64 +
CONFIG_PREEMPT=y and boot tested with kvm -smp 4 upto wanting to mount
root.

It still needs asm volatile("call preempt_schedule": : :"memory"); as per
Andi's other patches to avoid the C calling convention cluttering the
preempt_enable() sites.
