[PATCH v2 0/1] binder: return pending info for frozen async txns

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


From: Li Li <dualli@xxxxxxxxxx>

User applications need to know if their binder transactions reach a
frozen process or not. For sync binder calls, Linux kernel already
has a dedicated return value BR_FROZEN_REPLY, indicating this sync
binder transaction will be rejected (similar to BR_DEAD_REPLY) as the
target process is frozen. But for async binder calls, the user space
application doesn't have a way to know if the target process is frozen.

This patch adds a new return value, BR_TRANSACTION_PENDING, to fix this
issue. Similar to BR_TRANSACTION_COMPLETE, it means the async binder
transaction has been put in the queue of the target process, but it's
waiting for the target process to be unfrozen.

v1: checkpatch.pl --strict passed
v2: protect proc->is_frozen with lock, fix typo in comments
