Subject: [Linux-kernel-mentees] [PATCH RESEND] events:core.c: Use built-in RCU list checking
Date: Fri, 14 Feb 2020 22:14:54 +0530
Message-ID: <> (raw)

From: Madhuparna Bhowmik <>

list_for_each_entry_rcu has built-in RCU and lock checking.

Pass cond argument to list_for_each_entry_rcu() to silence
false lockdep warning when CONFIG_PROVE_RCU_LIST is enabled
by default.
