Subject[PATCH 4.14 060/173] ftrace: Add comment to why rcu_dereference_sched() is open coded
Date
From: Steven Rostedt (VMware) <rostedt@goodmis.org>

[ Upstream commit 16052dd5bdfa16dbe18d8c1d4cde2ddab9d23177 ]

Because the function graph tracer can execute in sections where RCU is not
"watching", the rcu_dereference_sched() for the has needs to be open coded.
This is fine because the RCU "flavor" of the ftrace hash is protected by
its own RCU handling (it does its own little synchronization on every CPU
and does not rely on RCU sched).
