Subject: [PATCH tip/core/rcu 4/6] rcu/tree: segcblist: Remove redundant smp_mb()s
Date: Tue,  5 Jan 2021 17:26:15 -0800
Message-ID: <20210106012617.14122-4-paulmck@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210106012541.GA13972@paulmck-ThinkPad-P72>

From: "Joel Fernandes (Google)" <joel@joelfernandes.org>

The full memory barriers in rcu_segcblist_enqueue() and in rcu_do_batch()
are not needed because rcu_segcblist_add_len(), and thus also
rcu_segcblist_inc_len(), already includes a memory barrier *before*
and *after* the length of the list is updated.

This commit therefore removes these redundant smp_mb() invocations.
