Subject: [PATCH -next v2] bcache: use DEFINE_MUTEX() for mutex lock
Date: Wed, 7 Apr 2021 17:38:48 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

mutex lock can be initialized automatically with DEFINE_MUTEX() rather
than explicitly calling mutex_init().

this patch will reduce the size of bcache.ko about 64 bytes, the reason
as follows:

though this patch will increase the size of .data segment about 32 bytes,
it will also reduce the size of .init.text and .rodata.str1.1(at x86_64),
.rodata_str1.8(at arm64) and .bss segment total about 96 bytes which reduce
 the size more than .data segment;

here is the statistics:
Sections: (arm64 platform)
Idx name		size
-.init.text		00000240
+.init.text		00000228

-.rodata.str1.8	000012cd
+.rodata.str1.8	000012b5			00000c60			00000c80

-.bss			00000080
+.bss			00000060

Sections: (x86 platform)
Idx name		size
-.init.text		000001d9
+.init.text		000001bf

-.rodata.str1.1	00000c80
+.rodata.str1.1	00000c6d			00000cc0			00000ce0

-.bss			00000080
+.bss			00000070
