locking/seqcount: Re-fix raw_read_seqcount_latch()
Commit 50755bc1c305 ("seqlock: fix raw_read_seqcount_latch()") broke raw_read_seqcount_latch(). If you look at the comment that was modified; the thing that changes is the seq count, not the latch pointer. * void latch_modify(struct latch_struct *latch, ...) * { * smp_wmb(); <- Ensure that the last data[1] update is visible * latch->seq++; * smp_wmb(); <- Ensure that the seqcount update is visible * * modify(latch->data[0], ...); * * smp_wmb(); <- Ensure that the data[0] update is visible * latch->seq++; * smp_wmb(); <- Ensure that the seqcount update is visible * * modify(latch->data[1], ...); * } * * The query will have a form like: * * struct entry *latch_query(struct latch_struct *latch, ...) * { * struct entry *entry; * unsigned seq, idx; * * do { * seq = lockless_dereference(latch->seq); So here we have: seq = READ_ONCE(latch->seq); smp_read_barrier_depends(); Which is exactly what we want; the new code: seq = ({ p = READ_ONCE(latch); smp_read_barrier_depends(); p })->seq; is just wrong; because it looses the volatile read on seq, which can now be torn or worse 'optimized'. And the read_depend barrier is also placed wrong, we want it after the load of seq, to match the above data[] up-to-date wmb()s. Such that when we dereference latch->data[] below, we're guaranteed to observe the right data. * * idx = seq & 0x01; * entry = data_query(latch->data[idx], ...); * * smp_rmb(); * } while (seq != latch->seq); * * return entry; * } So yes, not passing a pointer is not pretty, but the code was correct, and isn't anymore now. Change to explicit READ_ONCE()+smp_read_barrier_depends() to avoid confusion and allow strict lockless_dereference() checking.
