Subject: Re: [PATCH net-next v2 0/7] bonding: get rid of curr_slave_lock

From: Nikolay Aleksandrov <>
Date: Thu, 11 Sep 2014 22:49:21 +0200

> This is the second patch-set dealing with bond locking and the purpose here
> is to convert curr_slave_lock into a spinlock called "mode_lock" which can
> be used in the various modes for their specific needs. The first three
> patches cleanup the use of curr_slave_lock and prepare it for the
> conversion which is done in patch 4 and then the modes that were using
> their own locks are converted to use the new "mode_lock" giving us the
> opportunity to remove their locks.
> This patch-set has been tested in each mode by running enslave/release of
> slaves in parallel with traffic transmission and miimon=1 i.e. running
> all the time. In fact this lead to the discovery of a subtle bug related to
> RCU which will be fixed in -net.
> Also did an allmodconfig test just in case :-)


> v2: fix bond_3ad_state_machine_handler's use of mode_lock and
>     curr_slave_lock
