Subject: [RFC][PATCH v1 5/9] ima: allocating iint improvements
Date: Mon, 30 Jan 2012 17:14:00 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1327961644-6886-6-git-send-email-zohar@linux.vnet.ibm.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1327961644-6886-1-git-send-email-zohar@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

From: Dmitry Kasatkin <dmitry.kasatkin@intel.com>

With IMA-appraisal's removal of the iint mutex and taking the i_mutex
instead, allocating the iint becomes a lot simplier, as we don't need
to be concerned with two processes racing to allocate the iint. This
patch cleans up and improves performance for allocating the iint.

- removed redundant double i_mutex locking
- combined iint allocation with tree search
- replaced spinlock with rwlock/read_lock
