Subject: [PATCH 1/9] watchdog: new definitions and variables, initialization
Date: Thu,  5 Feb 2015 15:40:17 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1423168825-156238-2-git-send-email-dzickus@redhat.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1423168825-156238-1-git-send-email-dzickus@redhat.com>

From: Ulrich Obergfell <uobergfe@redhat.com>

Introduce new definitions and variables to separate the user interface
in /proc/sys/kernel from the internal run state of the lockup detectors.
The internal run state is represented by two bits in a new variable that
is named 'watchdog_enabled'. This helps simplify the code, for example:

- In order to check if any of the two lockup detectors is enabled,
  it is sufficient to check if 'watchdog_enabled' is not zero.

- In order to enable/disable one or both lockup detectors,
  it is sufficient to set/clear one or both bits in 'watchdog_enabled'.

- Concurrent updates of 'watchdog_enabled' need not be synchronized via
  a spinlock or a mutex. Updates can either be atomic or concurrency can
  be detected by using 'cmpxchg'.
