[C/R v20][PATCH 16/96] cgroup freezer: Update stale locking comments

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


From: Matt Helsley <matthltc@xxxxxxxxxx>

Update stale comments regarding locking order and add a little more detail
so it's easier to follow the locking between the cgroup freezer and the
power management freezer code.
