IPC: cleanup some code and wrong comments about semundo list managment
Some comments about sem_undo_list seem wrong. About the comment above unlock_semundo: "... If task2 now exits before task1 releases the lock (by calling unlock_semundo()), then task1 will never call spin_unlock(). ..." This is just wrong, I see no reason for which task1 will not call spin_unlock... The rest of this comment is also wrong... Unless I miss something (of course). Finally, (un)lock_semundo functions are useless, so remove them for simplification. (this avoids an useless if statement) Signed-off-by: Pierre Peiffer <pierre.peiffer@bull.net> Cc: Nadia Derbey <Nadia.Derbey@bull.net> Acked-by: Serge Hallyn <serue@us.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
