Subject: [PATCH RFC 12/18] staging: vchiq_util: use completions instead of semaphores
Date: Fri, 26 Oct 2018 15:48:07 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20181026134813.7775-13-nsaenzjulienne@suse.de> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20181026134813.7775-1-nsaenzjulienne@suse.de>

It is preferred in the kernel to avoid using semaphores to wait for
events, as they are optimised for the opposite situation; where the
common case is that they are available and may block only occasionally.
FYI see this thread: https://lkml.org/lkml/2008/4/11/323.

Also completions are semantically more explicit in this case.
