Subject[ 30/69] ipc: move rcu lock out of ipc_addid
Date
3.10-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Davidlohr Bueso <davidlohr.bueso@hp.com>

commit dbfcd91f06f0e2d5564b2fd184e9c2a43675f9ab upstream.

This patchset continues the work that began in the sysv ipc semaphore
scaling series, see

https://lkml.org/lkml/2013/3/20/546

Just like semaphores used to be, sysv shared memory and msg queues also
abuse the ipc lock, unnecessarily holding it for operations such as
permission and security checks.

This patchset mostly deals with mqueues, and while shared mem can be
done in a very similar way, I want to get these patches out in the open
first. It also does some pending cleanups, mostly focused on the two
level locking we have in ipc code, taking care of ipc_addid() and
ipcctl_pre_down_nolock() - yes there are still functions that need to be
updated as well.

This patch:

Make all callers explicitly take and release the RCU read lock.

This addresses the two level locking seen in newary(), newseg() and
newqueue(). For the last two, explicitly unlock the ipc object and the
rcu lock, instead of calling the custom shm_unlock and msg_unlock
functions. The next patch will deal with the open coded locking for
->perm.lock
