Subject: [PATCH 1/3] lib: add "all" and "none" as valid ranges to bitmap_parselist()
Date: Thu, 21 Jan 2021 17:33:53 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210121223355.59780-2-paul.gortmaker@windriver.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210121223355.59780-1-paul.gortmaker@windriver.com>

The use of "all" was originally RCU specific - I'd pushed it down to
being used for any CPU lists -- then Yuri suggested pushing it down
further to be used by any bitmap, which is done here.

As a trivial one line extension, we also accept the inverse "none"
as a valid alias.
