Subject[PATCH tip/core/rcu 04/40] srcu: Check for tardy grace-period activity in cleanup_srcu_struct()
Date
Users of SRCU are obliged to complete all grace-period activity before
invoking cleanup_srcu_struct(). This means that all calls to either
synchronize_srcu() or synchronize_srcu_expedited() must have returned,
and all calls to call_srcu() must have returned, and the last call to
call_srcu() must have been followed by a call to srcu_barrier().
Furthermore, the caller must have done something to prevent any
further calls to synchronize_srcu(), synchronize_srcu_expedited(),
and call_srcu().

Therefore, if there has ever been an invocation of call_srcu() on
the srcu_struct in question, the sequence of events must be as
follows:

1. Prevent any further calls to call_srcu().
2. Wait for any pre-existing call_srcu() invocations to return.
3. Invoke srcu_barrier().
4. It is now safe to invoke cleanup_srcu_struct().

On the other hand, if there has ever been a call to synchronize_srcu()
or synchronize_srcu_expedited(), the sequence of events must be as
follows:

1. Prevent any further calls to synchronize_srcu() or
synchronize_srcu_expedited().
2. Wait for any pre-existing synchronize_srcu() or
synchronize_srcu_expedited() invocations to return.
3. It is now safe to invoke cleanup_srcu_struct().

If there have been calls to all both types of functions (call_srcu()
and either of synchronize_srcu() and synchronize_srcu_expedited()), then
the caller must do the first three steps of the call_srcu() procedure
above and the first two steps of the synchronize_s*() procedure above,
and only then invoke cleanup_srcu_struct().
