Subject[RFC PATCH for 5.4 3/7] Cleanup: sched/membarrier: Only sync_core before usermode for same mm
Date
When the prev and next task's mm change, switch_mm() provides the core
serializing guarantees before returning to usermode. The only case
where an explicit core serialization is needed is when the scheduler
keeps the same mm for prev and next.
