Subject[PATCH v2 0/9] entry: preempt_schedule_irq() callers scrub
Date
I've left this to ~rot~ age out in the sun for a while, apologies for that.
One early new-year resolution for me is to maintain a shorter resend
timeout on this.


This is the continuation of [1] where I'm hunting down
preempt_schedule_irq() callers because of [2]. I've looked at users of
preempt_schedule_irq(), and made sure they didn't have one of those useless
loops. The list of offenders is:

$ grep -r -I "preempt_schedule_irq" arch/ | cut -d/ -f2 | sort | uniq

arc
arm
arm64
c6x
csky
h8300
ia64
m68k
microblaze
mips
nds32
nios2
parisc
powerpc
riscv
s390
sh
sparc
x86
xtensa

Regarding that loop, archs seem to fall in 3 categories:
A) Those that don't have the loop
B) Those that have a small need_resched() loop around the
preempt_schedule_irq() callsite
C) Those that branch to some more generic code further up the entry code
and eventually branch back to preempt_schedule_irq()

arc, m68k, nios2 fall in A)
sparc, ia64, s390 fall in C)
all the others fall in B)

I've written patches for B). As of 5.3 mainline contains those for:
- arm64
- mips
- x86
- powerpc
- nds32

I've also got acks/reviews but haven't seen in any tree yet for:
- c6x
- csky
- riscv
- xtensa

The remaining ones for which I haven't had any reply at all are
- h8300
- microblaze
- sh
- sh64

Build-tested:
- h8300
- c6x
- microblaze
- riscv

No major change since v1 other than rebasing on top of 5.4 and collecting
Reviewed-By / Acked-By.

Thanks,
Valentin
