Subject[PATCH 00/18] Allow architectures to override __READ_ONCE()
Date
Hi everyone,

This is the long-awaited version two of the patches I previously
posted in November last year:

https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20191108170120.22331-1-will@kernel.org/

I ended up parking the series while the READ_ONCE() implementation was
being overhauled, but with that merged during the recent merge window
and LTO patches being posted again [1], it was time for a refresh.

The patches allow architectures to provide their own implementation of
__READ_ONCE(). This serves two main purposes:

1. It finally allows us to remove [smp_]read_barrier_depends() from the
Linux memory model and make it an implementation detail of the Alpha
back-end.

2. It allows arm64 to upgrade __READ_ONCE() to have RCpc acquire
semantics when compiling with LTO, since this may enable compiler
optimisations that break dependency ordering and therefore we
require fencing to ensure ordering within the CPU.

Both of these are implemented by this series.

I've kept Paul's acks from v1 since, although the series has changed
somewhat, the patches with his Ack have not changed materially in my
opinion. I will drop them if anybody objects.

In terms of merging this, my preference would be a stable branch in the
arm64 tree, which others can pull in as they need it.

Cheers,

Will
