Subject[PATCH 12/12] percpu: invoke __verify_pcpu_ptr() from the generic part of accessors and operations
Date
__verify_pcpu_ptr() is used to verify that a specified parameter is
actually an percpu pointer by percpu accessor and operation
implementations. Currently, where it's called isn't clearly defined
and we just ensure that it's invoked at least once for all accessors
and operations.

As __verify_pcpu_ptr() now includes a data dependency barrier,
invoking it more times than necessary may incur unnecessary overhead.
Alos, the lack of clarity on when it should be called isn't nice and
given that this is a completely generic issue, there's no reason to
make archs worry about it.

This patch updates __verify_pcpu_ptr() invocations such that it's
always invoked from the final generic wrapper once per access or
operation. As this is already the case for {raw|this}_cpu_*()
definitions through __pcpu_size_*(), only the {raw|per|this}_cpu_ptr()
accessors need to be updated.

This change makes it unnecessary for archs to worry about
__verify_pcpu_ptr(). x86's arch_raw_cpu_ptr() is updated accordingly.
