[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v7 00/73] per-CPU locks

From: Emilio G. Cota
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v7 00/73] per-CPU locks
Date: Mon, 4 Mar 2019 13:17:00 -0500

v6: https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/qemu-devel/2019-01/msg07650.html

All patches in the series have reviews now. Thanks everyone!

I've tested all patches with `make check-qtest -j' for all targets.
The series is checkpatch-clean (just some warnings about __COVERITY__).

You can fetch the series from:


- Rebase on master
  - Add a cpu_halted_set call to arm code that wasn't there in v6

- Add R-b's and Ack's.

- Add comment to patch 3's log to explain why the bitmap is added
  there, even though it only gains a user at the end of the series.

- Fix "prevent deadlock" comments before assertions; use
  "enforce locking order" instead, which is more accurate.

- Add a few more comments, as suggested by Alex.

v6->v7 diff (before rebase) below.
