2013-06-26arch: Make __mutex_fastpath_lock_retval return whether fastpath succeeded or notMaarten Lankhorst
This will allow me to call functions that have multiple arguments if fastpath fails. This is required to support ticket mutexes, because they need to be able to pass an extra argument to the fail function. Originally I duplicated the functions, by adding __mutex_fastpath_lock_retval_arg. This ended up being just a duplication of the existing function, so a way to test if fastpath was called ended up being better. This also cleaned up the reservation mutex patch some by being able to call an atomic_set instead of atomic_xchg, and making it easier to detect if the wrong unlock function was previously used.

2006-07-03[PATCH] lockdep: better lock debuggingIngo Molnar
Generic lock debugging: - generalized lock debugging framework. For example, a bug in one lock subsystem turns off debugging in all lock subsystems. - got rid of the caller address passing (__IP__/__IP_DECL__/etc.) from the mutex/rtmutex debugging code: it caused way too much prototype hackery, and lockdep will give the same information anyway. - ability to do silent tests - check lock freeing in vfree too. - more finegrained debugging options, to allow distributions to turn off more expensive debugging features. There's no separate 'held mutexes' list anymore - but there's a 'held locks' stack within lockdep, which unifies deadlock detection across all lock classes. (this is independent of the lockdep validation stuff - lockdep first checks whether we are holding a lock already) Here are the current debugging options: CONFIG_DEBUG_MUTEXES=y CONFIG_DEBUG_LOCK_ALLOC=y which do: config DEBUG_MUTEXES bool "Mutex debugging, basic checks" config DEBUG_LOCK_ALLOC bool "Detect incorrect freeing of live mutexes" Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Signed-off-by: Arjan van de Ven <arjan@linux.intel.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2006-01-09[PATCH] mutex subsystem, add asm-generic/mutex-[dec|xchg|null].h implementationsIngo Molnar
Add three (generic) mutex fastpath implementations. The mutex-xchg.h implementation is atomic_xchg() based, and should work fine on every architecture. The mutex-dec.h implementation is atomic_dec_return() based - this one too should work on every architecture, but might not perform the most optimally on architectures that have no atomic-dec/inc instructions. The mutex-null.h implementation forces all calls into the slowpath. This is used for mutex debugging, but it can also be used on platforms that do not want (or need) a fastpath at all.
