Subject[RFC PATCH v9 for 4.15 00/14] Restartable sequences and CPU op vector system calls
Date
Hi,

This v9 series addresses the debugger single-stepping problem for
restartable sequences by providing a new cpu_opv "cpu operation vector"
system call, and let userspace defer execution of the critical sections
to the kernel in case a restartable sequence gets restarted.

This cpu_opv system call is inspired from readv/writev system calls.
Instead of a struct io_vec array, it receives a struct cpu_op array as
argument.

This is provided as RFC, feedback is welcome!

Thanks,

Mathieu
