Subject[PATCH] WorkStruct: Implement generic UP cmpxchg() where an arch doesn't support it
Date
From: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com>

Implement generic UP cmpxchg() where an arch doesn't otherwise support it.
This assuming that the arch doesn't have support SMP without providing its own
cmpxchg() implementation.

This is required because cmpxchg() is used by the reduced work queue patches to
adjust the management data in a work_struct.


Also provide ARMv6 with a cmpxchg() implementation using LDREX/STREXEQ. Pre-v6
ARM doesn't support SMP according to ARM's atomic.h, so the generic
IRQ-disablement based cmpxchg() is entirely adequate there (if it isn't, then
atomic_cmpxchg() is also broken on ARM).


Furthermore, if the generic IRQ-disablement cmpxchg() is being used, then a
preprocessor symbol is defined (ARCH_USING_IRQ_BASED_CMPXCHG) so that code
using it can make alternative arrangements where such would be more efficient.

__queue_work() in kernel/workqueue.c then makes use of this as it disables
interrupts before attempting to modify the work queue pointer in the work item.

With the reduction patches, cmpxchg() is called indirectly from within
__queue_work(), and so it's more efficient to use __queue_work()'s interrupt
disablement and just make the desired change directly if the aforementioned
ARCH_USING_IRQ_BASED_CMPXCHG is set rather than using cmpxchg() at all.

Unfortunately, the compiler's optimiser can't discard excessive interrupt
disablement, so optimisation here has to be done manually, if at all.
