Subject[PATCH v3 2/8] proc/kcore: don't grab lock for memory hotplug notifier
Date
From: Omar Sandoval <osandov@fb.com>

The memory hotplug notifier kcore_callback() only needs kclist_lock to
prevent races with __kcore_update_ram(), but we can easily eliminate
that race by using an atomic xchg() in __kcore_update_ram(). This is
preparation for converting kclist_lock to an rwsem.
