Subject: [PATCH] x86:pvclock: add missing barriers
Date: Wed, 8 Jun 2016 21:11:39 +0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1465409499-23166-1-git-send-email-rkagan@virtuozzo.com> (raw)

Gradual removal of excessive barriers in pvclock reading functions
(commits 502dfeff239e8313bfbe906ca0a1a6827ac8481b,
a3eb97bd80134ba07864ca00747466c02118aca1) ended up removing too much:
although rdtsc is now orderd WRT other loads, there's no protection
against the compiler reordering the loads of ->version with the loads of
other fields.

E.g. on my system gcc-5.3.1 generates code which loads ->system_time and
->flags outside of the ->version test loop.

(Re)introduce the compiler barriers around accesses to the contents of
pvclock.  While at this, make the function a bit more compact by
removing unnecessary local variables.
