Subject: [RFC tip/locking/lockdep v6 05/20] lockdep: Reduce the size of lock_list::distance
Date: Wed, 11 Apr 2018 21:50:55 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20180411135110.9217-6-boqun.feng@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20180411135110.9217-1-boqun.feng@gmail.com>

lock_list::distance is always not greater than MAX_LOCKDEP_DEPTH (which
is 48 right now), so a u16 will fit. This patch reduces the size of
lock_list::distance to save space, so that we can introduce other fields
to help detect recursive read lock deadlocks without increasing the size
of lock_list structure.
