Subject: [PATCH 0/4] lib/vsprintf: Remove atomic-unsafe support for printk format %pCr
Date: Fri,  1 Jun 2018 11:28:18 +0200
Message-ID: <1527845302-12159-1-git-send-email-geert+renesas@glider.be> (raw)

	Hi all,

"%pCr" formats the current rate of a clock, and calls clk_get_rate().
The latter obtains a mutex, hence it must not be called from atomic
context.  As vsprintf() (and e.g. printk()) must be callable from any
context, it's better to remove support for this (rarely-used) format.

This patch series:
  - Changes all existing users of "%pCr" to print the result of
    clk_get_rate() directly, which is safe as they all do this in task
    context only,
  - Removes support for the "%pCr" printk format.

Note that any remaining out-of-tree users will start seeing the clock's
name printed instead of its rate.

Thanks for your comments!
