parentIB/hfi1: Fix potential panic with sdma drained mechanism (diff)
IB/hfi1: Improve performance of interval RB trees
The interval RB tree management functions use handlers to store user-specific callback for the various tree operations. These handlers are put on a doubly-linked list. When a RB tree function is called, the list is searched for the handler of the particular tree. The list which holds the handlers is modified very rarely - when a handler is created and when a handler is removed. On the other hand, it is searched very often. This a perfect usage scenario for RCU. The result is a much lower overhead of traversing the list as most of the time no locking will be required.
