Commit Message

Michel Lespinasse April 30, 2021, 7:52 p.m. UTC
The counter's write side is hooked into the existing mmap locking API:
mmap_write_lock() increments the counter to the next (odd) value, and
mmap_write_unlock() increments it again to the next (even) value.

The counter's speculative read side is supposed to be used as follows:

seq = mmap_seq_read_start(mm);
if (seq & 1)
	goto fail;
.... speculative handling here ....
if (!mmap_seq_read_check(mm, seq)
	goto fail;

This API guarantees that, if none of the "fail" tests abort
speculative execution, the speculative code section did not run
concurrently with any mmap writer.

This is very similar to a seqlock, but both the writer and speculative
readers are allowed to block. In the fail case, the speculative reader
does not spin on the sequence counter; instead it should fall back to
a different mechanism such as grabbing the mmap lock read side.
