11 years agoReplace BKL with superblock lock in fat/msdos/vfat
Linus Torvalds [Tue, 20 May 2008 02:53:01 +0000]
Replace BKL with superblock lock in fat/msdos/vfat

This replaces the use of the BKL in the FAT family of filesystems with the
existing superblock lock instead.

The code already appears to do mostly proper locking with its own private
spinlocks (and mutexes), but while the BKL could possibly have been
dropped entirely, converting it to use the superblock lock (which is just
a regular mutex) is the conservative thing to do.

As a per-filesystem mutex, it not only won't have any of the possible
latency issues related to the BKL, but the lock is obviously private to
the particular filesystem instance and will thus not cause problems for
entirely unrelated users like the BKL can.

Add a bunch of cycle_kernel_lock() calls

All of the open() functions which don't need the BKL on their face may
still depend on its acquisition to serialize opens against driver
initialization.  So make those functions acquire then release the BKL to be

Jonathan Corbet [Sun, 18 May 2008 20:27:41 +0000]
Add cycle_kernel_lock()

A number of driver functions are so obviously trivial that they do not need
the big kernel lock - at least not overtly.  It turns out that the
acquisition of the BKL in driver open() functions can perform a sort of
poor-hacker's serialization function, delaying the open operation until the
driver is certain to have completed its initialization.  Add a simple
cycle_kernel_lock() function for these cases to make it clear that there is
no need to *hold* the BKL, just to be sure that we can acquire it.

Add "no BKL needed" comments to several drivers

This documents the fact that somebody looked at the relevant open()
functions and concluded that, due to their trivial nature, no locking was
needed.

usb_open() is protected by a down_read(&minor_rwsem), but I'm not sure I
trust it to protect everything including subsidiary open() functions.
