[PATCH RT 6/7] net: Use cpu_chill() instead of cpu_relax()

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



From: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

Retry loops on RT might loop forever when the modifying side was
preempted. Use cpu_chill() instead of cpu_relax() to let the system
make progress.
