2014-02-24smp: Rename __smp_call_function_single() to smp_call_function_single_async()Frederic Weisbecker-2/+2
The name __smp_call_function_single() doesn't tell much about the properties of this function, especially when compared to smp_call_function_single(). The comments above the implementation are also misleading. The main point of this function is actually not to be able to embed the csd in an object. This is actually a requirement that result from the purpose of this function which is to raise an IPI asynchronously. As such it can be called with interrupts disabled. And this feature comes at the cost of the caller who then needs to serialize the IPIs on this csd. Lets rename the function and enhance the comments so that they reflect these properties.

2014-02-24smp: Remove wait argument from __smp_call_function_single()Frederic Weisbecker-2/+1
The main point of calling __smp_call_function_single() is to send an IPI in a pure asynchronous way. By embedding a csd in an object, a caller can send the IPI without waiting for a previous one to complete as is required by smp_call_function_single() for example. As such, sending this kind of IPI can be safe even when irqs are disabled. This flexibility comes at the expense of the caller who then needs to synchronize the csd lifecycle by himself and make sure that IPIs on a single csd are serialized. This is how __smp_call_function_single() works when wait = 0 and this usecase is relevant. Now there don't seem to be any usecase with wait = 1 that can't be covered by smp_call_function_single() instead, which is safer. Lets look at the two possible scenario: 1) The user calls __smp_call_function_single(wait = 1) on a csd embedded in an object. It looks like a nice and convenient pattern at the first sight because we can then retrieve the object from the IPI handler easily. But actually it is a waste of memory space in the object since the csd can be allocated from the stack by smp_call_function_single(wait = 1) and the object can be passed an the IPI argument. Besides that, embedding the csd in an object is more error prone because the caller must take care of the serialization of the IPIs for this csd. 2) The user calls __smp_call_function_single(wait = 1) on a csd that is allocated on the stack. It's ok but smp_call_function_single() can do it as well and it already takes care of the allocation on the stack. Again it's more simple and less error prone. Therefore, using the underscore prepend API version with wait = 1 is a bad pattern and a sign that the caller can do safer and more simple. There was a single user of that which has just been converted. So lets remove this option to discourage further users.

2013-09-11smp.h: move !SMP version of on_each_cpu() out-of-lineDavid Daney-0/+11
All of the other non-trivial !SMP versions of functions in smp.h are out-of-line in up.c. Move on_each_cpu() there as well. This allows us to get rid of the #include <linux/irqflags.h>. The drawback is that this makes both the x86_64 and i386 defconfig !SMP kernels about 200 bytes larger each.

2013-09-11up.c: use local_irq_{save,restore}() in smp_call_function_single.David Daney-3/+5
The SMP version of this function doesn't unconditionally enable irqs, so neither should this !SMP version. There are no know problems caused by this, but we make the change for consistency's sake.

2013-09-11smp: quit unconditionally enabling irq in on_each_cpu_mask and on_each_cpu_condDavid Daney-0/+39
As in commit f21afc25f9ed ("smp.h: Use local_irq_{save,restore}() in !SMP version of on_each_cpu()"), we don't want to enable irqs if they are not already enabled. There are currently no known problematical callers of these functions, but since it is a known failure pattern, we preemptively fix them. Since they are not trivial functions, make them non-inline by moving them to up.c. This also makes it so we don't have to fix #include dependancies for preempt_{disable,enable}.

2011-10-31kernel: Map most files to use export.h instead of module.hPaul Gortmaker-1/+1
The changed files were only including linux/module.h for the EXPORT_SYMBOL infrastructure, and nothing else. Revector them onto the isolated export header for faster compile times. Nothing to see here but a whole lot of instances of: -#include <linux/module.h> +#include <linux/export.h> This commit is only changing the kernel dir; next targets will probably be mm, fs, the arch dirs, etc. Signed-off-by: Paul Gortmaker <paul.gortmaker@windriver.com>

2009-01-11smp_call_function_single(): be slightly less stupidAndrew Morton-0/+18
If you do smp_call_function_single(expression-with-side-effects, ...) then expression-with-side-effects never gets evaluated on UP builds. As always, implementing it in C is the correct thing to do. While we're there, uninline it for size and possible header dependency reasons. And create a new kernel/up.c, as a place in which to put uniprocessor-specific code and storage. It should mirror kernel/smp.c. Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
