Subject: [Cocci] [PATCH 2/2 V3] Documentation: Coccinelle: Modify parallelisation information in docs
Date: Wed, 7 Oct 2020 13:52:53 +0530
Message-ID: <25adae324909605cdbe5ae88a9d60c34aeb515d7.1602054065.git.sylphrenadin@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <cover.1602054065.git.sylphrenadin@gmail.com>

This patchset modifies coccicheck to use at most one thread per core by
default in machines with more than 4 hyperthreads for optimal performance.
Modify documentation in coccinelle.rst to reflect the same.

Signed-off-by: Sumera Priyadarsini <sylphrenadin@gmail.com>

Changes in V2:
	Update scripts/coccicheck to use all available threads
	in machines with upto 4 hyperthreads.
