[PATCH net-next v4] net/smc: remove unneeded atomic operations in smc_tx_sndbuf_nonempty

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


The commit dcd2cf5f2fc0 ("net/smc: add autocorking support") adds an
atomic variable tx_pushing in smc_connection to make sure only one can
send to let it cork more and save CDC slot. since smc_tx_pending can be
called in the soft IRQ without checking sock_owned_by_user() at that
time, which would cause a race condition because bh_lock_sock() did
not honor sock_lock()

After commit 6b88af839d20 ("net/smc: don't send in the BH context if
sock_owned_by_user"), the transmission is deferred to when sock_lock()
is held by the user. Therefore, we no longer need tx_pending to hold

So remove atomic variable tx_pushing and its operation, and
smc_tx_sndbuf_nonempty becomes a wrapper of __smc_tx_sndbuf_nonempty,
so rename __smc_tx_sndbuf_nonempty back to smc_tx_sndbuf_nonempty
