Subject: [PATCH 6/6] mm, memcg: Prevent mem_cgroup_protected store tearing
Date: Thu, 12 Mar 2020 17:33:16 +0000
Message-ID: <d1e9fbc0379fe8db475d82c8b6fbe048876e12ae.1584034301.git.chris@chrisdown.name> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <cover.1584034301.git.chris@chrisdown.name>

The read side of this is all protected, but we can still tear if
multiple iterations of mem_cgroup_protected are going at the same time.

There's some intentional racing in mem_cgroup_protected which is ok, but
load/store tearing should be avoided.
