Subject[PATCH 1/5] locking/rwsem: Add down_write_timedlock()
Date
There are cases where a task wants to acquire a rwsem but doesn't want
to wait for an indefinite period of time. Instead, a task may want
an alternative way of dealing with the inability to acquire the lock
after a certain period of time. There are also cases where waiting
indefinitely can potentially lead to deadlock. Doing it by using a
trylock loop is inelegant as it increases cacheline contention and is
difficult to control the actual wait time.

To address this dilemma, a new down_write_timedlock() variant
is introduced which allows an additional ktime_t timeout argument
(currently in ns) relative to now. With this new API, a task can now
wait for a given period of time and bail out when the lock cannot be
acquired within the given period.

In reality, the actual wait time is likely to be longer than the
given time. Timeout checking isn't done when doing optimistic spinning.
Therefore a short timeout smaller than the scheduling period may be
less accurate.

From the lockdep perspective, down_write_timedlock() is treated similar
to down_write_trylock().

A similar down_read_timedlock() may be added later on when the need
arises.
