Subject: [PATCH -next] ipc/sem: prevent queue.status tearing in semop
Date: Mon, 16 Jul 2018 22:26:54 -0700
Message-ID: <20180717052654.676-1-dave@stgolabs.net> (raw)

In order for load/store tearing to work, _all_ accesses to
the variable in question need to be done around READ and
WRITE_ONCE() macros. Ensure everyone does so for q->status
variable for semtimedop().
