Hi Jerome,

Thanks a lot for reviewing this series.

Yes, changes are still made under the protection of the mmap_sem.

The sequence counter is used to detect write operation done while
readers (SPF handler) is running.

The implementation is quite simple (here without the lockdep checks):

static inline void raw_write_seqcount_begin(seqcount_t *s)
{
s->sequence++;
smp_wmb();
}

I can't see why this is too complex here, would you elaborate on this ?

vm_flags is not enough I guess an some operation are not impacting the
vm_flags at all (resizing for instance).
Am I missing something ?

Well I don't think we can safely clear the vm_flags this way when the
VMA is unmap, I think it is used later when cleaning is doen.

Later in this series, the VMA deletion is managed when the VMA is
unlinked from the RB Tree. That is checked using the vm_rb field's
value, and managed using RCU.

That's true that the lockdep is quite annoying here. But it is still
interesting to keep in the loop to avoid 2 subsequent
write_seqcount_begin() call being made in the same context (which would
lead to an even sequence counter value while write operation is in
progress). So I think this is still a good thing to have lockdep
available here.
