requeue_pi_wake_futex: Wake a task that acquired the lock during requeue

NAME

requeue_pi_wake_futex - Wake a task that acquired the lock during requeue

SYNOPSIS

void requeue_pi_wake_futex(struct futex_q q, union futex_key key, struct futex_hash_bucket hb);

ARGUMENTS

q

the futex_q

key

the key of the requeue target futex

hb

the hash_bucket of the requeue target futex

DESCRIPTION

During futex_requeue, with requeue_pi=1, it is possible to acquire the target futex if it is uncontended or via a lock steal. Set the futex_q key to the requeue target futex so the waiter can detect the wakeup on the right futex, but remove it from the hb and NULL the rt_waiter so it can detect atomic lock acquisition. Set the q->lock_ptr to the requeue target hb->lock to protect access to the pi_state to fixup the owner later. Must be called with both q->lock_ptr and hb->lock held.
