SubjectRe: [PATCH] uprobes: teach build_probe_list() to consider the range
* Oleg Nesterov <> [2012-07-09 15:35:10]:

> Currently build_probe_list() builds the list of all uprobes attached
> to the given inode, and the caller should filter out those who don't
> fall into the [start,end) range, this is sub-optimal.
> This patch turns find_least_offset_node() into find_node_in_range()
> which returns the first node inside the [min,max] range, and changes
> build_probe_list() to use this node as a starting point for rb_prev()
> and rb_next() to find all other nodes the caller needs. The resulting
> list is no longer sorted but we do not care.
> This can speed up both build_probe_list() and the callers, but there
> is another reason to introduce find_node_in_range(). It can be used
> to figure out whether the given vma has uprobes or not, this will be
> needed soon.
> While at it, shift INIT_LIST_HEAD(tmp_list) into build_probe_list().
