Subject: [PATCH] nfsd: document callback_wq serialization of callback code
Date: Fri, 8 Nov 2019 12:54:17 -0500
Message-ID: <20191108175417.GC758@fieldses.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20191108175228.GB758@fieldses.org>

The callback code relies on the fact that much of it is only ever called
from the ordered workqueue callback_wq, and this is worth documenting.

Also adding a comment, since I know this was a source of confusion when
investigating these races.
