ipc,msg: introduce lockless functions to obtain the ipc object
Davidlohr Bueso [Mon, 8 Jul 2013 23:01:15 +0000 (16:01 -0700)]
commit a5001a0d9768568de5d613c3b3a5b9c7721299da upstream.

Add msq_obtain_object() and msq_obtain_object_check(), which will allow
us to get the ipc object without acquiring the lock.  Just as with
semaphores, these functions are basically wrappers around
ipc_obtain_object*().
