Subject: [PATCH v3 08/14] locking/mcs: Use smp_cond_load_acquire() in mcs spin loop
Date: Thu, 26 Apr 2018 11:34:22 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1524738868-31318-9-git-send-email-will.deacon@arm.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1524738868-31318-1-git-send-email-will.deacon@arm.com>

From: Jason Low <jason.low2@hp.com>

For qspinlocks on ARM64, we would like to use WFE instead
of purely spinning. Qspinlocks internally have lock
contenders spin on an MCS lock.

Update arch_mcs_spin_lock_contended() such that it uses
the new smp_cond_load_acquire() so that ARM64 can also
override this spin loop with its own implementation using WFE.

On x86, this can also be cheaper than spinning on
smp_load_acquire().
