[RFC PATCH 12/14] parisc/thread_info: Introduce TIF_NOTIFY_IPI flag

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


Add support for TIF_NOTIFY_IPI on PA-RISC. With TIF_NOTIFY_IPI, a sender
sending an IPI to an idle CPU in TIF_POLLING mode will set the
TIF_NOTIFY_IPI flag in the target's idle tasks's thread_info to pull the
CPU out of idle, as opposed to setting TIF_NEED_RESCHED previously. This
avoids spurious calls to schedule_idle() in cases where an IPI does not
necessarily wake up a task on the idle CPU.
