In order to reduce locking overhead, I use the spinlock in
swait_queue_head to protect not only the wait queue, but also the list of
events. Consequently, I need to use unlocked functions __prepare_to_swait
and __finish_swait. These functions are declared in the file
include/linux/swait.h, but they are not exported, and so they are not
useable from kernel modules.
