Subject[patch V2 00/24] cpu/hotplug: Convert get_online_cpus() to a percpu_rwsem
get_online_cpus() is used in hot pathes in mainline and even more so in
RT. That can show up badly under certain conditions because every locker
contends on a global mutex. RT has it's own homebrewn mitigation which is
an (badly done) open coded implementation of percpu_rwsems with recursion
support.

The proper replacement for that are percpu_rwsems, but that requires to
remove recursion support.

The conversion unearthed real locking issues which were previously not
visible because the get_online_cpus() lockdep annotation was implemented
with recursion support which prevents lockdep from tracking full dependency
chains. These potential deadlocks are not related to recursive calls, they
trigger on the first invocation because lockdep now has the full dependency
chains available.

The following patch series addresses this by

- Cleaning up places which call get_online_cpus() nested

- Replacing a few instances with cpu_hotplug_disable() to prevent circular
locking dependencies.

The series depends on

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip.git sched/core
plus
Linus tree merged in to avoid conflicts

It's available in git from

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip.git WIP.hotplug

Changes since V1:

- Fixed fallout reported by kbuild bot
- Repaired the recursive call in perf
- Repaired the interaction with jumplabels (Peter Zijlstra)
- Renamed _locked to _cpuslocked
- Picked up Acked-bys

Thanks,

tglx
