fs: fs_struct rwlock to spinlock
fs: fs_struct rwlock to spinlock struct fs_struct.lock is an rwlock with the read-side used to protect root and pwd members while taking references to them. Taking a reference to a path typically requires just 2 atomic ops, so the critical section is very small. Parallel read-side operations would have cacheline contention on the lock, the dentry, and the vfsmount cachelines, so the rwlock is unlikely to ever give a real parallelism increase. Replace it with a spinlock to avoid one or two atomic operations in typical path lookup fastpath. Signed-off-by: Nick Piggin <npiggin@kernel.dk> Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>
