[PATCH 6/7] padata: Remove padata_get_cpumask

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


A function that copies the padata cpumasks to a user buffer
is a bit error prone. The cpumask can change any time so we
can't be sure to have the right cpumask when using this function.
A user who is interested in the padata cpumasks should register
to the padata cpumask notifier chain instead. Users of
padata_get_cpumask are already updated, so we can remove it.
