Subject: [GIT PULL] percpu changes for v5.3-rc1
Date: Sat, 13 Jul 2019 00:17:33 -0400
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Hi Linus,

This pull request includes changes to let percpu_ref release the backing
percpu memory earlier after it has been switched to atomic in cases
where the percpu ref is not revived. This will help recycle percpu
memory earlier in cases where the refcounts are pinned for prolonged
periods of time.
