[PATCH -rt] use SA_NODELAY for XScale PMU interrupts

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


In the XScale oprofile support, the performance monitoring unit (PMU)
triggers interrupts and the ISR reads out the performance data.  These
ISRs are currently set to SA_INTERRUPT.  In order to get accurate
performance and profiling data under PREEMPT_RT, these should use
SA_NODELAY.  The functions called by this ISR are limited to
drivers/oprofile functions.

Patch against 2.6.18-rt8
