Subject[PATCH 0/4] kvfree_rcu() and _LOCK_NESTING/_PREEMPT_RT
Date
Hello, folk!

This is another iteration of fixing kvfree_rcu() issues related
to CONFIG_PROVE_RAW_LOCK_NESTING and CONFIG_PREEMPT_RT configs.

The first discussion is here https://lkml.org/lkml/2020/8/9/195.

- As an outcome of it, there was a proposal from Peter, instead of
using a speciall "lock-less" flag it is better to move lock-less
access to the pcplist to the separate function.

- To add a special worker thread that does prefetching of pages
if a per-cpu page cache is depleted(what is absolutely normal).

As usual, thank you for paying attention to it and your help!

Uladzislau Rezki (Sony) (4):
rcu/tree: Add a work to allocate pages from regular context
mm: Add __rcu_alloc_page_lockless() func.
rcu/tree: use __rcu_alloc_page_lockless() func.
rcu/tree: Use schedule_delayed_work() instead of WQ_HIGHPRI queue
