[PATCH v3 0/4] implement vcpu preempted check

From: Pan Xinhui
Date: Thu Jul 21 2016 - 03:46:50 EST

change from v2:
no code change, fix typos, update some comments

change from v1:
a simplier definition of default vcpu_is_preempted
skip mahcine type check on ppc, and add config. remove dedicated macro.
add one patch to drop overload of rwsem_spin_on_owner and mutex_spin_on_owner.
add more comments
thanks boqun and Peter's suggestion.

This patch set aims to fix lock holder preemption issues.

We introduce interface bool vcpu_is_preempted(int cpu) and use it in some spin
loops of osq_lock, rwsem_spin_on_owner and mutex_spin_on_owner.
These spin_on_onwer variant also cause rcu stall before we apply this patch set

Pan Xinhui (4):
kernel/sched: introduce vcpu preempted check interface
powerpc/spinlock: support vcpu preempted check
locking/osq: Drop the overhead of osq_lock()
kernel/locking: Drop the overhead of {mutex,rwsem}_spin_on_owner
