Subject[PATCH tip/core/rcu 3/9] timer: Use hlist_unhashed_lockless() in timer_pending()
From: Eric Dumazet <>

The timer_pending() function is mostly used in lockless contexts, so
Without proper annotations, KCSAN might detect a data-race [1].

Using hlist_unhashed_lockless() instead of hand-coding it seems
appropriate (as suggested by Paul E. McKenney).


BUG: KCSAN: data-race in del_timer / detach_if_pending
