Subject: [PATCH v4 03/10] sched: snapshot thread flags
Date: Tue,  3 Aug 2021 10:54:21 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210803095428.17009-4-mark.rutland@arm.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210803095428.17009-1-mark.rutland@arm.com>

Some thread flags can be set remotely, and so even when IRQs are
disabled, the flags can change under our feet. Generally this is
unlikely to cause a problem in practice, but it is somewhat unsound, and
KCSAN will legitimately warn that there is a data race.

To avoid such issues, a snapshot of the flags has to be taken prior to
using them. Some places already use READ_ONCE() for that, others do not.

Convert them all to the new flag accessor helpers.

The READ_ONCE(ti->flags) .. cmpxchg(ti->flags) loop in
set_nr_if_polling() is left as-is for clarity.
