Improve 'create_workqueue', 'create_freezable_workqueue' and
'create_singlethread_workqueue' so that they accept a format
specifier and a variable number of arguments.

This will put these macros more in line with 'alloc_ordered_workqueue' and
the underlying 'alloc_workqueue()' function.

This will also allow further code simplification.

Patch 1 is the modification of the macro.
Patch 2 is an example of simplification possible with this patch

    specifier
  net/mlx5: Simplify workqueue name creation

There is no need to explicitly allocate, populate and free some memory
just to pass a workqueue name to 'create_singlethread_workqueue()'.

This macro can do all this for us, so keep the code simple.

A similar patch has also been sent. It was replacing the kmalloc/strcpy/
strcat with a kasprintf.
Updating 'create_singlethread_workqueue' gives an even more elegant solution.

Please Cc Tejun for workqueue changes since he maintains the workqueue code.

Hi,

The list in To: is the one given by get_maintainer.pl. Usualy, I only put the ML in Cc:
I've run the script on the 2 patches of the serie and merged the 2 lists. Everyone is in the To: of the cover letter and of the 2 patches.

If Théo is "Tejun Heo" (  (maintainer:WORKQUEUE) ), he is already in the To: line.

CJ

The changes make sense, but are you sure that no current users of those
macros have some % character in the string they pass? If all users pass
string literals the compiler/0day bot should catch those, but as the
very example you give in 2/2 shows, not everybody passes string literals.

Maybe git grep would quickly tell that there's only 8 callers and they
are all audited quickly or something like that; in that case please
include a note to that effect in the commit log.

Those interfaces are deprecated and if you're doing anything with the users,
the right course of action would be converting them to use one of the
alloc_workqueue interfaces.

Thanks.

Linus wants to see a "Cc: ${maintainer}" tag in patches that he receives
from a maintainer and that modify another subsystem than the subsystem
maintained by that maintainer.

Thanks,

Really? Do you remember a lore link for this?

Generally I've been junking the CC lines (vs Andrew at the other
extreme that often has 10's of CC lines)

Last time I saw Linus mentioning this was a few months ago.
Unfortunately I cannot find that message anymore.

Most entries in the MAINTAINERS file have one to three email addresses
so I'm surprised to read that Cc-ing maintainer(s) could result in tens
of Cc lines?

Thanks,

Bart.

commit 2b8305260fb37fc20e13f71e13073304d0a031c8

    kfence, kasan: make KFENCE compatible with KASAN

    Make KFENCE compatible with KASAN. Currently this helps test KFENCE
    itself, where KASAN can catch potential corruptions to KFENCE state, or
    other corruptions that may be a result of freepointer corruptions in the
    main allocators.

But where does that Cc-list come from? If I extract that patch and run 
the get_maintainer.pl script, the following output appears:

$ git format-patch -1 2b8305260fb37fc20e13f71e13073304d0a031c8

kasan-dev@googlegroups.com (open list:KFENCE)
linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org (open list)
linux-mm@kvack.org (open list:MEMORY MANAGEMENT)

Additionally, please note that in my email I was referring to the 
MAINTAINERS file. I do not use the get_maintainers.pl script but instead 
select the Cc-list manually based on what I find in the MAINTAINERS file.

Thanks,

Bart.

This is a special case probably as KFENCE touched various subsystems and
architectures.

That Cc list is from the original

	https://lkml.kernel.org/r/20201103175841.3495947-7-elver@google.com

It was determined based on the full series, mostly from a
get_maintainer.pl of 'reviewer' and 'maintainer' lists of the full
series diff, minus a some false positives to avoid spamming people, and
plus a few people get_maintainer.pl missed that had provided or could
provide useful input. So the list above is mostly maintainers+reviewers
of mm/, mm/kasan, arch/x86, and arch/arm64.

KFENCE did not yet exist when the patch the above series was part of was
posted... so chicken and egg situation here. ;-)

Of course this patch has already been NAKed but it wasn't clear to me
whose git tree it would have gone through.  Surely if it were going
through your tree you would have required an Acked-by: from Tejun and
the CC: line would not be required.  It would only be required if you
can't get a maintainer to respond.
