ARCv2: spinlock: remove the extra smp_mb before lock, after unlock
- ARCv2 LLSC spinlocks have smp_mb() both before and after the LLSC instructions, which is not required per lkmm ACQ/REL semantics. smp_mb() is only needed _after_ lock and _before_ unlock. So remove the extra barriers. The reason they were there was mainly historical. At the time of initial SMP Linux bringup on HS38 cores, I was too conservative, given the fluidity of both hw and sw. The last attempt to ditch the extra barrier showed some hackbench regression which is apparently not the case now (atleast for LLSC case, read on...) - EX based spinlocks (!CONFIG_ARC_HAS_LLSC) still needs the extra smp_mb(), not due to lkmm, but due to some hardware shenanigans. W/o that, hackbench triggers RCU stall splat so extra DMB is retained !LLSC based systems are not realistic Linux sstem anyways so they can afford to be a nit suboptimal ;-) | [ARCLinux]# for i in (seq 1 1 5) ; do hackbench; done | Running with 10 groups 400 process | INFO: task hackbench:158 blocked for more than 10 seconds. | Not tainted 4.20.0-00005-g96b18288a88e-dirty #117 | "echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/hung_task_timeout_secs" disables this message. | hackbench D 0 158 135 0x00000000 | | Stack Trace: | watchdog: BUG: soft lockup - CPU#3 stuck for 59s!
