Subject: [PATCH rcu 03/13] rcu-tasks: Add trc_inspect_reader() checks for exiting critical section
Date: Wed, 15 Sep 2021 16:45:54 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210915234604.3907802-3-paulmck@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210915234538.GA3907674@paulmck-ThinkPad-P17-Gen-1>

Currently, trc_inspect_reader() treats a task exiting its RCU Tasks
Trace read-side critical section the same as being within that critical
section.  However, this can fail because that task might have already
checked its .need_qs field, which means that it might never decrement
the all-important trc_n_readers_need_end counter.  Of course, for that
to happen, the task would need to never again execute an RCU Tasks Trace
read-side critical section, but this really could happen if the system's
last trampoline was removed.  Note that exit from such a critical section
cannot be treated as a quiescent state due to the possibility of nested
critical sections.  This means that if trc_inspect_reader() sees a
negative nesting value, it must set up to try again later.

This commit therefore ignores tasks that are exiting their RCU Tasks
Trace read-side critical sections so that they will be rechecked later.

[ paulmck: Apply feedback from Neeraj Upadhyay and Boqun Feng. ]
