This depends on what percpu_rwsem_wake_function() returns. If it returns 1,
__wake_up_common() stops, exactly because all waiters have WQ_FLAG_EXCLUSIVE.

Well, "'all' readers" probably means "all readers before writer",

See above...

note also the

if (!__percpu_rwsem_trylock(sem, reader))
return 1;

at the start of percpu_rwsem_wake_function(). We want to stop wake_up_common()
as soon as percpu_rwsem_trylock() fails. Because we know that if it fails once
it can't succeed later. Although iiuc this can only happen if another (new)
writer races with __wake_up(&sem->waiters).


I guess WQ_FLAG_CUSTOM can be avoided, percpu_rwsem_wait() could do

if (read)
__add_wait_queue_entry_tail(...);
else {
wq_entry.flags |= WQ_FLAG_EXCLUSIVE;
__add_wait_queue(...);
}

but this is "unfair".

Oleg.
