Kernel Locking Techniques
Linux Journal tells us about
Kernel Locking Techniques.
"Proper locking can be tough--real
tough. Improper locking can result in random crashes and other
oddities. Poorly designed locking can result in code that is hard to
read, performs poorly and makes your fellow kernel developers cringe. In
this article, I explain why kernel code requires locking, provide
general rules for proper kernel locking semantics and then outline the
various locking primitives in the Linux kernel."
