Gmane
From: Peter Zijlstra <peterz <at> infradead.org>
Subject: [RFC 0/8] Move locking primitives into kernel/locking/
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Tuesday 5th November 2013 12:10:44 UTC (over 2 years ago)
Hi all,

During Kernel Summit Dave mentioned that there wasn't a clear maintainer
for
locking bits.

To remedy this Ingo suggested gathering all the various locking primitives
and
lockdep into a single place: kernel/locking/.

I would further like to propose a MAINTAINERS entry like:

LOCKING
M:      Ingo Molnar 
M:      Peter Zijlstra 
M:	Oleg Nesterov 
M:	"Paul E. McKenney" 
M:	Linus Torvalds 
T:      git git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip.git
locking/core
S:      Maintained
F:      kernel/locking/

Because for most 'fun' locking discussions we usually end up with at least
those people anyway :-)

Comments?
