SubjectRe: [RFC] RT-patch update to remove the global pi_lock
From
Date
Ingo,

The following code segment from pick_new_owner:


waiter = plist_first_entry(&lock->wait_list, struct rt_mutex_waiter, list);

try_again:
trace_special_pid(waiter->ti->task->pid, waiter->ti->task->prio, 0);

#ifdef ALL_TASKS_PI
check_pi_list_present(lock, waiter, old_owner);
#endif
new_owner = waiter->ti;
/*
* The new owner is still blocked on this lock, so we
* must release the lock->wait_lock before grabing
* the new_owner lock.
*/
__raw_spin_unlock(&lock->wait_lock);
__raw_spin_lock(&new_owner->task->pi_lock);
__raw_spin_lock(&lock->wait_lock);
/*
* In this split second of releasing the lock, a high priority
* process could have come along and blocked as well.
*/
waiter = plist_first_entry(&lock->wait_list, struct rt_mutex_waiter, list);
if (unlikely(waiter->ti != new_owner)) {
__raw_spin_unlock(&new_owner->task->pi_lock);
goto try_again;
}


Is basically a waste on UP. Should the following patch be applied
instead?
