[PATCH v11 3/9] Use atomic_t for ucounts reference counting

Thu Apr 22 12:27:10 UTC 2021


From: Alexey Gladkov <legion at kernel.org>

The current implementation of the ucounts reference counter requires the
use of spin_lock. We're going to use get_ucounts() in more performance
critical areas like a handling of RLIMIT_SIGPENDING.

Now we need to use spin_lock only if we want to change the hashtable.

v10:
* Always try to put ucounts in case we cannot increase ucounts->count.
  This will allow to cover the case when all consumers will return
  ucounts at once.

v9:
* Use a negative value to check that the ucounts->count is close to
  overflow.
