Subject: [PATCH 5.2 19/37] bcache: add comments for mutex_lock(&b->write_lock)
Date: Fri, 13 Sep 2019 14:07:24 +0100
Message-ID: <20190913130518.607029021@linuxfoundation.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20190913130510.727515099@linuxfoundation.org>

When accessing or modifying BTREE_NODE_dirty bit, it is not always
necessary to acquire b->write_lock. In bch_btree_cache_free() and
mca_reap() acquiring b->write_lock is necessary, and this patch adds
comments to explain why mutex_lock(&b->write_lock) is necessary for
checking or clearing BTREE_NODE_dirty bit there.
