parentlocking/atomics, media/dvb_ringbuffer: Convert ACCESS_ONCE() to READ_ONCE()/WRITE_ONCE() (diff)
locking/atomics, net/netlink/netfilter: Convert ACCESS_ONCE() to READ_ONCE()/WRITE_ONCE()
For several reasons, it is desirable to use {READ,WRITE}_ONCE() in preference to ACCESS_ONCE(), and new code is expected to use one of the former. So far, there's been no reason to change most existing uses of ACCESS_ONCE(), as these aren't currently harmful. However, for some features it is necessary to instrument reads and writes separately, which is not possible with ACCESS_ONCE(). This distinction is critical to correct operation. It's possible to transform the bulk of kernel code using the Coccinelle script below. However, this doesn't handle comments, leaving references to ACCESS_ONCE() instances which have been removed. As a preparatory step, this patch converts netlink and netfilter code and comments to use {READ,WRITE}_ONCE() consistently. ---- virtual patch @ depends on patch @ expression E1, E2; @@ - ACCESS_ONCE(E1) = E2 + WRITE_ONCE(E1, E2) @ depends on patch @ expression E; @@ - ACCESS_ONCE(E) + READ_ONCE(E) ---- Signed-off-by: Mark Rutland <mark.rutland@arm.com> Signed-off-by: Paul E.
