Subject[PATCHSET] workqueue: prepare for concurrency managed workqueue, take#2
Date
Hello, all.

This patchset is the second take of prep-for-concurrent-managed-wq
patchset. Changes from the last take[L] are

* sched_notifier implementation redone such that it's more similar to
preempt_notifier and activate/deactivate ops are replaced with
wakeup/sleep.

I thought about doing state based callback[s] - three callbacks for
the three states - run, ready, sleep but it makes things more
complicated for the caller and there are only four transition edges
among the states anyway.

Another alternative to the current wakeup/sleep/in/out would be
wakeup/sleep/run/preempted where the only difference would be
preempted is not called after sleep is called while out is called
even after sleep is called. Either is not much better than the
other and the current use case fits in/out better, so I left it as
was.

* cpu_populated_map is killed but single thread implementation is now
left largely unchanged. I'll follow up with further patches on
this.

* force_cpus_allowed_ptr() renamed to force_cpus_allowed().

* Locking bug in introduce-worker fixed.

This patchset contains the following patches.

0001-sched-kvm-fix-race-condition-involving-sched_in_pree.patch
0002-workqueue-Add-debugobjects-support.patch
0003-sched-rename-preempt_notifier-to-sched_notifier-and-.patch

0007-acpi-use-queue_work_on-instead-of-binding-workqueue-.patch
0008-stop_machine-reimplement-without-using-workqueue.patch
0009-workqueue-misc-cosmetic-updates.patch
0010-workqueue-merge-feature-parametesr-into-flags.patch

0012-workqueue-define-both-bit-position-and-mask-for-work.patch
0013-workqueue-separate-out-process_one_work.patch
0014-workqueue-temporarily-disable-workqueue-tracing.patch
0015-workqueue-kill-cpu_populated_map.patch
0016-workqueue-reimplement-workqueue-flushing-using-color.patch
0017-workqueue-introduce-worker.patch
0018-workqueue-reimplement-work-flushing-using-linked-wor.patch
0019-workqueue-reimplement-workqueue-freeze-using-cwq-fro.patch

If there's no objection (especially the scheduler notifier part), I
want to push the patches into linux-next and wait a while before
pushing concurrency managed workqueue. This prep patchset already
contains a lot of changes so I think it would be helpful to verify
things are okay at this point.

This patchset is available in the following git tree.

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tj/wq.git review-wq-prep

Please note that the above tree is temporary. It needs to be rebased
once the fix patches appear upstream.
