Helps finding racy users of call_rcu(), which results in hangs because list
entries are overwritten and/or skipped.
Changelog since v4:
- Bissectability is now OK
- Now generate a WARN_ON_ONCE() for non-initialized rcu_head passed to
call_rcu(). Statically initialized objects are detected with
- Rename rcu_head_init_on_stack to init_rcu_head_on_stack.
- Remove init_rcu_head() completely.
Changelog since v3:
- Include comments from Lai Jiangshan
This new patch version is based on the debugobjects with the newly introduced
"active state" tracker.
Non-initialized entries are all considered as "statically initialized". An
activation fixup (triggered by call_rcu()) takes care of performing the debug
object initialization without issuing any warning. Since we cannot increase the
size of struct rcu_head, I don't see much room to put an identifier for
statically initialized rcu_head structures. So for now, we have to live without
"activation without explicit init" detection. But the main purpose of this debug
option is to detect double-activations (double call_rcu() use of a rcu_head
before the callback is executed), which is correctly addressed here.
This also detects potential internal RCU callback corruption, which would cause
the callbacks to be executed twice.
