Subject[PATCH for 4.16 00/10] membarrier updates for 4.16
Hi Ingo, Hi Peter,

Here are the membarrier patch series I would like to submit for the
4.16 merge window. It would be appreciated of those can go through the
scheduler tree.

It's the same series as last week, rebased on top of 4.15-rc8.


"powerpc: membarrier: Skip memory barrier in switch_mm()" takes care of
a TODO that was left in the private expedited implementation when merged
in 4.14: an extra memory barrier was added on context switch on powerpc.
Ensure that the barrier is only performed when scheduling between
different processes, only for threads belonging to processes that have
registered their intent to use the private expedited command.

"membarrier: provide SHARED_EXPEDITED command" adds new commands to
membarrier for registration and use of membarrier across shared
memory mappings. The non-expedited command has proven to be really
too slow (taking 10ms and more to complete) for real-world use. The
expedited version completes in a matter of microseconds.

"membarrier: Provide core serializing command" provides core
serialization for JIT reclaim. We received positive feedback from
Android developers that the proposed ABI fits their use-case.
Only x86 32/64 and arm 64 implement this command so far. This is
opt-in per architecture.

The other patches add selftests and documentation.
