[PATCH 1/8] cgroup: kill cgroup_subsys->__DEPRECATED_clear_css_refs

Wed Oct 31 04:22:38 UTC 2012


2ef37d3fe4 ("memcg: Simplify mem_cgroup_force_empty_list error
handling") removed the last user of __DEPRECATED_clear_css_refs.  This
patch removes __DEPRECATED_clear_css_refs and mechanisms to support
it.

* Conditionals dependent on __DEPRECATED_clear_css_refs removed.

* ->pre_destroy() now can only fail if a new task is attached or child
  cgroup is created while ->pre_destroy()s are being called.  As the
  condition is checked again after re-acquiring cgroup_mutex
  afterwards, we don't need to take any immediate action on
  ->pre_destroy() failures.  This reduces cgroup_call_pre_destroy() to
  a simple loop surrounding ->pre_destory().  Remove
  cgroup_call_pre_destroy() and open-code the loop into
  cgroup_rmdir().

* cgroup_clear_css_refs() can no longer fail.  All that needs to be
  done are deactivating refcnts, setting CSS_REMOVED and putting the
  base reference on each css.  Remove cgroup_clear_css_refs() and the
  failure path, and open-code the loops into cgroup_rmdir().

Note that cgroup_rmdir() will see more cleanup soon.
