memcg: fix css_id() RCU locking for real
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Tue, 11 May 2010 21:06:58 +0000 (14:06 -0700)]
Commit ad4ba375373937817404fd92239ef4cadbded23b ("memcg: css_id() must be
called under rcu_read_lock()") modifies memcontol.c for fixing RCU check
message.  But Andrew Morton pointed out that the fix doesn't seems sane
and it was just for hidining lockdep messages.

This is a patch for do proper things.  Checking again, all places,
accessing without rcu_read_lock, that commit fixies was intentional....
all callers of css_id() has reference count on it.  So, it's not necessary
to be under rcu_read_lock().

Considering again, we can use rcu_dereference_check for css_id().  We know
css->id is valid if css->refcnt > 0.  (css->id never changes and freed
after css->refcnt going to be 0.)

This patch makes use of rcu_dereference_check() in css_id/depth and remove
unnecessary rcu-read-lock added by the commit.
