[PATCH] Change maxaligned_in_smp alignemnt macros to internodealigned_in_smp macros
____cacheline_maxaligned_in_smp is currently used to align critical structures and avoid false sharing. It uses per-arch L1_CACHE_SHIFT_MAX and people find L1_CACHE_SHIFT_MAX useless. However, we have been using ____cacheline_maxaligned_in_smp to align structures on the internode cacheline size. As per Andi's suggestion, following patch kills ____cacheline_maxaligned_in_smp and introduces INTERNODE_CACHE_SHIFT, which defaults to L1_CACHE_SHIFT for all arches. Arches needing L3/Internode cacheline alignment can define INTERNODE_CACHE_SHIFT in the arch asm/cache.h. Patch replaces ____cacheline_maxaligned_in_smp with ____cacheline_internodealigned_in_smp With this patch, L1_CACHE_SHIFT_MAX can be killed Signed-off-by: Ravikiran Thirumalai <kiran@scalex86.org> Signed-off-by: Shai Fultheim <shai@scalex86.org> Signed-off-by: Andi Kleen <ak@suse.de> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
