Series arm64: rework NEON yielding to avoid scheduling from asm code | expand

Commit Message

The users of the conditional NEON yield macros have all been switched to
the simplified cond_yield macro, and so the NEON specific ones can be
removed.

- * Check whether to yield to another runnable task from kernel mode NEON code
- * (which runs with preemption disabled).
- *
- * if_will_cond_yield_neon
- *        // pre-yield patchup code
- * do_cond_yield_neon
- *        // post-yield patchup code
- * endif_yield_neon    <label>
- *
- * where <label> is optional, and marks the point where execution will resume
- * after a yield has been performed. If omitted, execution resumes right after
- * the endif_yield_neon invocation. Note that the entire sequence, including
- * the provided patchup code, will be omitted from the image if
- * CONFIG_PREEMPTION is not defined.
- *
- * As a convenience, in the case where no patchup code is required, the above
- * sequence may be abbreviated to
- *
- * cond_yield_neon <label>
- *
- * Note that the patchup code does not support assembler directives that change
- * the output section, any use of such directives is undefined.
- *
- * The yield itself consists of the following:
- * - Check whether the preempt count is exactly 1 and a reschedule is also
- *   needed. If so, calling of preempt_enable() in kernel_neon_end() will
- *   trigger a reschedule. If it is not the case, yielding is pointless.
- * - Disable and re-enable kernel mode NEON, and branch to the yield fixup
- *   code.
- *
- * This macro sequence may clobber all CPU state that is not guaranteed by the
- * AAPCS to be preserved across an ordinary function call.
