Subject[PATCH, RFC] Char dev BKL pushdown v2
From
Date
OK, since the previous announcement, I've revisited all of the open()
functions which didn't get lock_kernel() calls the first time around.
Alan pointed out that even a completely empty open() might, in fact,
need to acquire the BKL, so now they all do. Hopefully, this completes
this work (at this level - there's plenty of down-pushing to do within
subsystems).

There's a new tree with this stuff:

git://git.lwn.net/linux-2.6.git bkl-removal

Stephen, might it be about time to pull this into linux-next and see
what explodes?

If others have BKL-removal patches which look like 2.6.27 material, I'll
happily collect them in this tree.

Thanks,

jon

P.S. Here's what's in it now:
