Subject[KVM PATCH v3 0/3] irqfd/eventfd fixes
(Applies to kvm.git/master:4631e094)

The following is the latest attempt to fix the remaining races in
irqfd/eventfd. For more details, please read the patch headers.

This series has been tested against the kvm-eventfd unit test, and
appears to be functioning properly. You can download this test here:

(Note: I believe either the eventfd solution in 2/3, or the patch that
Davide has proposed should work equally well. Its purely a question of
which direction we want to go in w.r.t. the wakeup registration).


Gregory Haskins (3):
KVM: Fix races in irqfd using new eventfd_kref_get interface
eventfd: add internal reference counting to fix notifier race conditions
kvm: prepare irqfd for having interrupts disabled during eventfd->release
