jump_label: jump_label_inc may return before the code is patched
Gleb Natapov [Tue, 18 Oct 2011 17:55:51 +0000 (19:55 +0200)]
If cpu A calls jump_label_inc() just after atomic_add_return() is
called by cpu B, atomic_inc_not_zero() will return value greater then
zero and jump_label_inc() will return to a caller before jump_label_update()
finishes its job on cpu B.
