Subject: [PATCH 2.6.24-rc8-mm1 04/15] IPC/semaphores: move the rwmutex handling inside semctl_down
Date: Tue, 29 Jan 2008 17:02:33 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20080129161727.317911992@bull.net> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20080129160229.612172683@bull.net>

[-- Attachment #1: ipc_move_rwmutex_handling_inside_semctl_down.patch --]
[-- Type: text/plain, Size: 2312 bytes --]

From: Pierre Peiffer <pierre.peiffer@bull.net>

semctl_down is called with the rwmutex (the one which protects the
list of ipcs) taken in write mode.
This patch moves this rwmutex taken in write-mode inside semctl_down.
This has the advantages of reducing a little bit the window during
which this rwmutex is taken, clarifying sys_semctl, and finally of
having a coherent behaviour with [shm|msg]ctl_down
