I'm still showing occurrences in:

./Documentation/RCU/NMI-RCU.txt
./Documentation/kprobes.txt
./Documentation/uml/UserModeLinux-HOWTO.txt
./kernel/rcupdate.c

The last one is interesting:

/* FASTCALL no longer exists, this wrapper may no longer be needed */
static void wakeme_after_rcu(struct rcu_head  *head)
{
        struct rcu_synchronize *rcu;

        rcu = container_of(head, struct rcu_synchronize, head);
        complete(&rcu->completion);
}

The comment is rather ungrammatical/meaningless.  Perhaps it is trying
to tell us that we can remove this function now?

Sorry, I added that as a note in my patch to look into and ended up
forgetting about it.

The original comment that was there read:
/* Because of FASTCALL declaration of complete, we use this wrapper */

Sorry about that, I'll look into the last occurances and send you a
patch 4/3.

Harvey

An example function prototype and description of options that
modify how arguments are passed had references to fastcall.

Andrew, I don't have the knowledge to deal with the rcupdate.c
wrapper function, hopefully Paul will be able to have a look.

Also, the UML reference is to a config option UM_FASTCALL, not
the FASTCALL macro.

Hmmm...  A better comment might be something like "Awaken the
corresponding synchronize_rcu() instance now that a grace period has
completed".  Given that the underlying RCU implementation provides
callbacks, synchronize_rcu() will need some sort of callback function.

So, the question is whether "complete()" can be that callback function.
As near as I can tell, the answer is "no", because the RCU callback
function always gets a pointer to a struct rcu_head, which would not
make much sense to the "complete()" function.

In short, I believe that wakeme_after_rcu() needs to stick around.
A better comment for wakeme_after_rcu() would be good, perhaps as shown below.

						Thanx, Paul
