[PATCH v19 15/30] drm/shmem-helper: Avoid lockdep warning when pages are released

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


All drivers will be moved to get/put pages explicitly and then the last
put_pages() will be invoked during gem_free() time by some drivers.
We can't touch reservation lock when GEM is freed because that will cause
a spurious warning from lockdep when shrinker support will be added.
Lockdep doesn't know that fs_reclaim isn't functioning for a freed object,
and thus, can't deadlock. Release pages directly without taking reservation
lock if GEM is freed and its refcount is zero.
