Subject: [PATCH tip/core/rcu 0/16] rcu: v2 patches queued for 2.6.35
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Thursday 15th April 2010 18:12:55 UTC (over 6 years ago)
Hello!

RFC preview of RCU patches queued for 2.6.35, take 2.  Take 1 is at
http://lkml.org/lkml/2010/4/5/134.
 Changes to old patches noted in
"[]", new patches flagged with "New".

 1.	substitute set_need_resched for sending resched IPIs
 	This reduces OS jitter.

 2.	make dead code really dead.  [Updated commit message as suggested
 	by Mathieu Desnoyers.]
 3.	move some code from macro to function
 	Cleanups from Lai Jiangshan.

 4.	ignore offline CPUs in last non dyntick idle CPU check
 	Fix to my CONFIG_RCU_FAST_NO_HZ code to handle offline and
	non-existent CPUs, also from Lai Jiangshan.

 5.	fix bogus CONFIG_PROVE_LOCKING in comments to reality
 6.	fix now bogus rcu_scheduler_active comments
 	Comment fixups.

 7.	shrink rcutiny by making synchronize_rcu_bh be inline
 	Shrink TINY_RCU some more.

 8.	rename rcutiny rcu_ctrlblk to rcu_sched_ctrlblk
 	First step towards TINY_PREEMPTIBLE_RCU.

 9.	refactor RCU's context switch handling
 	Reduce the number of needless softirqs.

10.	slim down rcutiny by removing rcu_scheduler_active and friends
	More shrinkage for TINY_RCU

11.	New: enable CPU_STALL_VERBOSE by default.  It will have been in one
	release, so time to enable it.

12.	New: disable CPU stall warnings upon panic

13.	New: print boot-time console messages if RCU configs out of ordinary

14.	New: improve RCU CPU stall-warning messages

15.	New: permit discontiguous cpu_possible_mask CPU numbering

16.	New: v2: reduce the number of spurious RCU_SOFTIRQ invocations

							Thanx, Paul
