Subject: [PATCH -tip v1 1/3] Documentation: seqlock: s/LOCKTYPE/LOCKNAME/g
Date: Sun,  6 Dec 2020 17:21:41 +0100
Message-ID: <20201206162143.14387-2-a.darwish@linutronix.de> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20201206162143.14387-1-a.darwish@linutronix.de>

Sequence counters with an associated write serialization lock are called
seqcount_LOCKNAME_t. Fix the documentation accordingly.

While at it, remove a paragraph that inappropriately discussed a
seqlock.h implementation detail.

Fixes: 6dd699b13d53 ("seqlock: seqcount_LOCKNAME_t: Standardize naming convention")
