Subject[PATCH v7 02/21] drivers/net/b44: Align pwol_mask to unsigned long for better performance
Date
From: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org>

A bit in pwol_mask is set in b44_magic_pattern() by atomic set_bit().
But since pwol_mask is local and never exposed to concurrency, there is
no need to set bit in pwol_mask atomically.

set_bit() sets the bit in a single unsigned long location. Because
pwol_mask may not be aligned to unsigned long, the location may cross two
cache lines. On x86, accessing two cache lines in locked instruction in
set_bit() is called split locked access and can cause overall performance
degradation.

So use non atomic __set_bit() to set pwol_mask bits. __set_bit() won't hit
split lock issue on x86.
