Subject[PATCH v3 0/2] sched: Enforce order of leaf CFS runqueues
Date
Code review showed, that the hierarchical order of the leaf CFS runqueues
introduced by commit 67e8625 ("sched: Introduce hierarchal order on shares
update list") is not yet achieved. (See description of second patch for an
example.)

During the discussion of possible solutions [1], Paul Turner mentioned an
"ideal approach" to solve that.

This is the third iteration of the patch-set that tries to realize this ideal
approach.

Changes since v2 (http://lkml.org/lkml/2011/7/27/348):
- rebased against v3.1-rc2
- dropped patches that are unrelated to the actual bug fix
- fixed a race where freed memory might be accessed
- addressed Peter's comment about *not* providing this kind of
RCU list manipulation as a separate function

Changes since v1 (http://lkml.org/lkml/2011/7/21/169):
- rebased against v3.0
- included follow-up patches 4 to 8 (demonstrating the purpose of patch 1)
- patch 1 should be complete this time
- moved more functionality to rculist.h (see patch 2+3)
- more comments everywhere


Patch 1: New functions to splice RCU lists.

Patch 2: The actual bugfix.


Regards
Jan
