Merge branch 'tipc-next'
Ying Xue says: ==================== tipc: convert name table read-write lock to RCU Now TIPC name table is statically allocated and is protected with a Read-Write lock. To enhance the performance of TIPC name table lookup, we are going to involve RCU lock to protect the name table. As a consequence, it becomes lockless to concurrently look up name table on read side. However, before the conversion can be successfully made, the following two things must be first done: - change allocation way of name table from static to dynamic - fix several incorrect locking policy issues ==================== Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
