Subject[set5 PATCH 2/6] async: make async_synchronize_full() flush all work regardless of domain
From
Date
In response to an async related regression James noted:

"My theory is that this is an init problem: The assumption in a lot of
our code is that async_synchronize_full() waits for everything ... even
the domain specific async schedules, which isn't true."

...so make this assumption true.

Each domain, including the default one, registers itself on a global domain
list when work is scheduled. Once all entries complete it exits that
list. Waiting for the list to be empty syncs all in-flight work across
all domains.

Domains can opt-out of global syncing if they are declared as exclusive
ASYNC_DOMAIN_EXCLUSIVE(). All stack-based domains have been declared
exclusive since the domain may go out of scope as soon as the last work
item completes.

Statically declared domains are mostly ok, but async_unregister_domain()
is there to close any theoretical races with pending
async_synchronize_full waiters at module removal time.
