rcu: Deinline rcu_read_lock_sched_held() if DEBUG_LOCK_ALLOC
DEBUG_LOCK_ALLOC=y is not a production setting, but it is not very unusual either. Many developers routinely use kernels built with it enabled. Apart from being selected by hand, it is also auto-selected by PROVE_LOCKING "Lock debugging: prove locking correctness" and LOCK_STAT "Lock usage statistics" config options. LOCK STAT is necessary for "perf lock" to work. I wouldn't spend too much time optimizing it, but this particular function has a very large cost in code size: when it is deinlined, code size decreases by 830,000 bytes: text data bss dec hex filename 85674192 22294776 20627456 128596424 7aa39c8 vmlinux.before 84837612 22294424 20627456 127759492 79d7484 vmlinux (with this config: http://busybox.net/~vda/kernel_config) Signed-off-by: Denys Vlasenko <dvlasenk@redhat.com> CC: "Paul E.

+/**
+ * rcu_read_lock_sched_held() - might we be in RCU-sched read-side critical section?
+ *
+ * If CONFIG_DEBUG_LOCK_ALLOC is selected, returns nonzero iff in an
+ * RCU-sched read-side critical section. In absence of
+ * CONFIG_DEBUG_LOCK_ALLOC, this assumes we are in an RCU-sched read-side
+ * critical section unless it can prove otherwise. Note that disabling
+ * of preemption (including disabling irqs) counts as an RCU-sched
+ * read-side critical section. This is useful for debug checks in functions
+ * that required that they be called within an RCU-sched read-side
+ * critical section.
+ *
+ * Check debug_lockdep_rcu_enabled() to prevent false positives during boot
+ * and while lockdep is disabled.
+ *
+ * Note that if the CPU is in the idle loop from an RCU point of
+ * view (ie: that we are in the section between rcu_idle_enter() and
+ * rcu_idle_exit()) then rcu_read_lock_held() returns false even if the CPU
+ * did an rcu_read_lock(). The reason for this is that RCU ignores CPUs
+ * that are in such a section, considering these as in extended quiescent
+ * state, so such a CPU is effectively never in an RCU read-side critical
+ * section regardless of what RCU primitives it invokes. This state of
+ * affairs is required --- we need to keep an RCU-free window in idle
+ * where the CPU may possibly enter into low power mode. This way we can
+ * notice an extended quiescent state to other CPUs that started a grace
+ * period. Otherwise we would delay any grace period as long as we run in
+ * the idle task.
+ *
+ * Similarly, we avoid claiming an SRCU read lock held if the current
+ * CPU is offline.
