Is it acceptable for performance improvement or more comments on this patch?


Your alispinlock patchset should also include a use case where the lock is used by some code within the kernel with test that can show a performance improvement so that the reviewers can independently try it out and play around with it. The kernel community will not accept any patch without a use case in the kernel.

Your lock_test.tar file is not good enough as it is not a performance test of the patch that you sent out.
