Subject: [patch 10/12] futex: Add mutex around futex exit
Date: Wed, 06 Nov 2019 22:55:44 +0100
Message-ID: <20191106224556.845798895@linutronix.de> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20191106215534.241796846@linutronix.de>

The mutex will be used in subsequent changes to replace the busy looping of
a waiter when the futex owner is currently executing the exit cleanup to
prevent a potential live lock.
