[PATCH -mm 2/4] cputimers: make sure thread_group_cputime() can't count the same thread twice lockless
- change __exit_signal() to do __unhash_process() before we accumulate the counters in ->signal - add a couple of barriers into thread_group_cputime() and __exit_signal() to make sure thread_group_cputime() can never account the same thread twice if it races with exit. If any thread T was already accou... 29 Mar 2010 14:44
[PATCH -mm 3/4] cputimers: thread_group_times: make it rcu-safe
thread_group_times() relies on ->siglock hold by the caller when it updates sig->prev_Xtime members. Change the code to take cputimer.lock around the assignment. This makes it rcu-safe and fixes the theoretical race. wait_task_zombie() calls it lockless and thus can race with do_task_stat(). Note: we are takin... 29 Mar 2010 14:44
