Subject[PATCH v2] locking/pvqspinlock: restore/set vcpu_hashed state after failing adaptive locking spinning
Date
From: Wanpeng Li <wanpeng.li@hotmail.com>

When the lock holder vCPU is racing with the queue head:

CPU 0 (lock holder) CPU1 (queue head)
=================== =================
spin_lock(); spin_lock();
pv_kick_node(): pv_wait_head_or_lock():
if (!lp) {
lp = pv_hash(lock, pn);
xchg(&l->locked, _Q_SLOW_VAL);
}
WRITE_ONCE(pn->state, vcpu_halted);
cmpxchg(&pn->state,
vcpu_halted, vcpu_hashed);
WRITE_ONCE(l->locked, _Q_SLOW_VAL);
(void)pv_hash(lock, pn);

In this case, lock holder inserts the pv_node of queue head into the
hash table and set _Q_SLOW_VAL unnecessary. This patch avoids it by
restoring/setting vcpu_halted state after failing adaptive locking
spinning.
