[PATCH RFC V8 2/17] x86/ticketlock: Don't inline _spin_unlock when using paravirt spinlocks

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


From: Raghavendra K T <raghavendra.kt@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> 

The code size expands somewhat, and its better to just call
a function rather than inline it.

Thanks Jeremy for original version of ARCH_NOINLINE_SPIN_UNLOCK config patch, 
which is simplified.
