From: Thomas Gleixner <tglx <at> linutronix.de>
Subject: [patch 0/5] seqlock: cleanup, raw_seqlock implementation, xtime_lock conversion
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Wednesday 17th February 2010 18:47:31 UTC (over 6 years ago)
The following series contains the following changes:

    - fix the last users of the oldstyle seqlock initializer 

    - implement raw_seqlock (for seqlocks which need a raw_spinlock in
      preempt-rt

    - convert xtime_lock to raw_seqlock and fix up all users

    - convert x86 vsyscall gtod seqlock to raw_seqlock

The patches have been used in the preempt-rt tree for quite a while
and are a defacto NOP change for mainline, but merging them takes off
the burden from preempt-rt.

Please review and comment.

Thanks,

	tglx
