      configfs: Introduce configfs_dirent_lock · 6f610764
      Louis Rilling authored
      This patch introduces configfs_dirent_lock spinlock to protect configfs_dirent
      traversals against linkage mutations (add/del/move). This will allow
      configfs_detach_prep() to avoid locking i_mutexes.
      Locking rules for configfs_dirent linkage mutations are the same plus the
      requirement of taking configfs_dirent_lock. For configfs_dirent walking, one can
      either take appropriate i_mutex as before, or take configfs_dirent_lock.
      The spinlock could actually be a mutex, but the critical sections are either
      O(1) or should not be too long (default groups walking in last patch).
        - Clarify the comment on configfs_dirent_lock usage
        - Move sd->s_element init before linking the new dirent
        - In lseek(), do not release configfs_dirent_lock before the dirent is

      Detach sched.h from mm.h · e8edc6e0
      Alexey Dobriyan authored
      First thing mm.h does is including sched.h solely for can_do_mlock() inline
      function which has "current" dereference inside. By dealing with can_do_mlock()
      mm.h can be detached from sched.h which is good. See below, why.
      This patch
      a) removes unconditional inclusion of sched.h from mm.h
      b) makes can_do_mlock() normal function in mm/mlock.c
      c) exports can_do_mlock() to not break compilation
      d) adds sched.h inclusions back to files that were getting it indirectly.
      e) adds less bloated headers to some files (asm/signal.h, jiffies.h) that were
         getting them indirectly
      Net result is:
      a) mm.h users would get less code to open, read, preprocess, parse, ... if
         they don't need sched.h
      b) sched.h stops being dependency for significant number of files:
         on x86_64 allmodconfig touching sched.h results in recompile of 4083 files,
         after patch it's only 3744 (-8.3%).
      Cross-compile tested on
      	all arm defconfigs, all mips defconfigs, all powerpc defconfigs,
      	alpha alpha-up
      	i386 i386-up i386-defconfig i386-allnoconfig
      	ia64 ia64-up
      	parisc parisc-up
      	powerpc powerpc-up
      	s390 s390-up
      	sparc sparc-up
      	sparc64 sparc64-up
      	x86_64 x86_64-up x86_64-defconfig x86_64-allnoconfig
      as well as my two usual configs.
