Subject: [PATCH 2/2] io_uring: use signal based task_work running
Date: Tue, 30 Jun 2020 12:45:18 -0600
Message-ID: <20200630184518.696101-3-axboe@kernel.dk> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200630184518.696101-1-axboe@kernel.dk>

Since 5.7, we've been using task_work to trigger async running of
requests in the context of the original task. This generally works
great, but there's a case where if the task is currently blocked
in the kernel waiting on a condition to become true, it won't process
task_work. Even though the task is woken, it just checks whatever
condition it's waiting on, and goes back to sleep if it's still false.

This is a problem if that very condition only becomes true when that
task_work is run. An example of that is the task registering an eventfd
with io_uring, and it's now blocked waiting on an eventfd read. That
read could depend on a completion event, and that completion event
won't get trigged until task_work has been run.

Use the TWA_SIGNAL notification for task_work, so that we ensure that
the task always runs the work when queued.
