    brlocks/lglocks: API cleanups · 962830df
    Andi Kleen authored
    lglocks and brlocks are currently generated with some complicated macros
    in lglock.h.  But there's no reason to not just use common utility
    functions and put all the data into a common data structure.
    In preparation, this patch changes the API to look more like normal
    function calls with pointers, not magic macros.
    The patch is rather large because I move over all users in one go to keep
    it bisectable.  This impacts the VFS somewhat in terms of lines changed.
    But no actual behaviour change.
