[PATCH v4 00/30] Support recursive-read lock deadlock detection
From: Yuyang Du
Date: Thu Aug 29 2019 - 04:31:47 EST
Hi Peter and Ingo,
This patchset proposes a general read-write lock deadlock detection
algorithm on the premise that exclusive locks can be seen as a
special/partial usage of read-write locks. The current Linux kernel
locks are all considered in this algorithm. Prominently, the
recursive-read lock can be well supported, which has not been for more
than a decade.
The bulk of the algorithm is in patch #27. Now that the recursive-read
locks are suppported, we have all the 262 cases passed.
Please, some of the minor fix and/or no-functional-change patches may
be reviewed at least.
Changes from v3:
- Reworded some changelogs
- Rebased to current code base
- Per Boqun's suggestion, reordered patches
- Much more time elapsed
Changes from v2:
- Handle correctly rwsem locks hopefully.
- Remove indirect dependency redundancy check.
- Check direct dependency redundancy before validation.
- Compose lock chains for those with trylocks or separated by trylocks.
- Map lock dependencies to lock chains.
- Consolidate forward and backward lock_lists.
- Clearly and formally define two-task model for lockdep.
