rcu: endless stalls

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Greetings,

I received a report of a 48 core UV box hitting a gripe, taking longer
than timeout to emit same, so box griped endlessly, forcing reboot.

The below might prevent that.. and bust other stuff for free :)

rcu: one gripe at a time please
