Pull locking updates from Ingo Molnar: "The main changes are: - 'qspinlock' support, enabled on x86: queued spinlocks - these are now the spinlock variant used by x86 as they outperform ticket spinlocks in every category. (Waiman Long) - 'pvqspinlock' support on x86: paravirtualized variant of queued spinlocks. (Waiman Long, Peter Zijlstra) - 'qrwlock' support, enabled on x86: queued rwlocks. Similar to queued spinlocks, they are now the variant used by x86: CONFIG_ARCH_USE_QUEUED_SPINLOCKS=y CONFIG_QUEUED_SPINLOCKS=y CONFIG_ARCH_USE_QUEUED_RWLOCKS=y CONFIG_QUEUED_RWLOCKS=y - various lockdep fixlets - various locking primitives cleanups, further WRITE_ONCE() propagation" * 'locking-core-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip: (24 commits) locking/lockdep: Remove hard coded array size dependency locking/qrwlock: Don't contend with readers when setting _QW_WAITING lockdep: Do not break user-visible string locking/arch: Rename set_mb() to smp_store_mb() locking/arch: Add WRITE_ONCE() to set_mb() rtmutex: Warn if trylock is called from hard/softirq context arch: Remove __ARCH_HAVE_CMPXCHG locking/rtmutex: Drop usage of __HAVE_ARCH_CMPXCHG locking/qrwlock: Rename QUEUE_RWLOCK to QUEUED_RWLOCKS locking/pvqspinlock: Rename QUEUED_SPINLOCK to QUEUED_SPINLOCKS locking/pvqspinlock: Replace xchg() by the more descriptive set_mb() locking/pvqspinlock, x86: Enable PV qspinlock for Xen locking/pvqspinlock, x86: Enable PV qspinlock for KVM locking/pvqspinlock, x86: Implement the paravirt qspinlock call patching locking/pvqspinlock: Implement simple paravirt support for the qspinlock locking/qspinlock: Revert to test-and-set on hypervisors locking/qspinlock: Use a simple write to grab the lock locking/qspinlock: Optimize for smaller NR_CPUS locking/qspinlock: Extract out code snippets for the next patch locking/qspinlock: Add pending bit ...
