Subject[PATCH 0/8] locking: Various updates
Date
Hello,

A little bit of everything really, with the last two patches being
the most interesting ones.

Patch 1 fixes a silly typo.
Patches 2-5 cleanup a bit of ww mutex code.
Patch 6 isolates osq code.
Patch 7 uses the brand new READ/ASSIGN_ONCE primitives.
Patch 8 is a performance patch and gets rid of barrier calls when
polling for the (osq) lock.

More details obviously in the individual patches. Applies on today's -tip.

Please consider for 3.20, thanks!

Documentation/memory-barriers.txt: Fix smp typo
locking/mutex: Get rid of use_ww_cxt param in common paths
locking/mutex: Checking the stamp is ww only
locking/mutex: Delete useless comment
locking/mutex: Introduce ww_mutex_set_context_slowpath
locking/mcs: Better differentiate between mcs variants
locking: Use [READ,ASSIGN]_ONCE() for non-scalar types
locking/osq: No need for load/acquire when acquire-polling
