Hi, Pavel

Thanks for your review.

I did not explain clearly here.

If we use single_open() to open the file, a single buffer(physical
continious) will be allocated
to store the whole data of file /sys/kernel/debug/wakeup_sources.
When memory situation is not good(fragments...), long time may be used
to allocate
such buffer which may cause android watchdog timeout.

In seq_read(), the m->op->[start | stop] will be invoked as a pair.
So the srcu_lock will not be hold and return to userspace.

Thanks.
