Subject: [PATCH v2 0/4] locking/qspinlock, x86: Improve determinism for x86
Date: Wed, 03 Oct 2018 15:02:57 +0200
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Back when Will did his qspinlock determinism patches, we were left with one
cmpxchg loop on x86 due to the use of atomic_fetch_or(). Will proposed a nifty

While that didn't quite work, this series implements that basic idea.

Changes since v1:

 - Adjusted comments in #2, wildea01
 - 'Simplified' GEN_*_RMWcc, peterz
 - Rewrote _the_ patch to use BTS, wildea01
