That locking truly is disgusting.. why can't we change that?

That's not sufficient, you really want to have called kthread_bind() on
these threads, otherwise userspace can change affinity on you.

I thought kthreads only needed to return...

So this does a down_read_trylock(&cpufreq_rwsem) and a
read_lock_irqsave(&cpufreq_driver_lock), all while holding scheduler
locks.

This will then do a down_write_trylock(&policy->rwsem)

That is just insane... surely we can replace all that with a wee bit of
RCU logic.

So something like:

DEFINE_MUTEX(cpufreq_mutex);
struct cpufreq_driver *cpufreq_driver;

struct cpufreq_policy *cpufreq_cpu_get(unsigned int cpu)
{
struct cpufreq_driver *driver;
struct cpufreq_policy *policy;

rcu_read_lock();
driver = rcu_dereference(cpufreq_driver);
if (!driver)
goto err;

policy = per_cpu_ptr(driver->policy, cpu);
if (!policy)
goto err;

return policy;

err:
rcu_read_unlock();
return NULL;
}


void cpufreq_cpu_put(struct cpufreq_policy *policy)
{
rcu_read_unlock();
}



void cpufreq_set_driver(struct cpufreq_driver *driver)
{
mutex_lock(&cpufreq_mutex);

rcu_assign_pointer(cpufreq_driver, NULL);

/*
* Wait for everyone to observe the lack of driver; iow. until
* its unused.
*/
synchronize_rcu();

/*
* Now that ye olde driver be gone, install a new one.
*/
if (driver)
rcu_assign_pointer(cpufreq_driver, driver);

mutex_unlock(&cpufreq_mutex);
}


No need for cpufreq_rwsem or cpufreq_driver_lock..


Hmm?
