Subject: [PATCH v2 0/2] tcp/dcpp: tw_timer tweaks for nohz_full and PREEMPT_RT


This is v2 of [1] where the tw_timer is un-pinned to get rid of interferences in
isolated CPUs setups.

Patch 1 is pretty much the same as v1, just got an extra comment in
inet_twsk_deschedule_put() to highlight the race.

Patch 2 was added as AFAICT the bh_disable is no longer needed after patch 1,
and Sebastian mentioned during LPC the he had been looking at getting rid of it
for removing softirq_ctrl.lock in PREEMPT_RT.

Eric mentionned rsk_timer needs looking into, but I haven't had the time to do
that. It doesn't show up in our testing, which might be due to its relatively
low timeout (IIUC 3s).


Valentin Schneider (2):
  tcp/dcpp: Un-pin tw_timer
  tcp/dcpp: Don't disable bh around timewait_sock initialization
