commit31a7c4746e9925512afab30557dd445d677cc802 (patch)
parentipc/sem.c: move wake_up_process out of the spinlock section (diff)
ipc/sem.c: cacheline align the ipc spinlock for semaphores
Cacheline align the spinlock for sysv semaphores. Without the patch, the spinlock and sem_otime [written by every semop that modified the array] and sem_base [read in the hot path of try_atomic_semop()] can be in the same cacheline.
