Torben Hohn - Jan. 20, 2011, 3:58 p.m.
the -rt patches change the console_semaphore to console_mutex.
so a quite large chunk of the patches changes all
acquire/release_console_sem() to acquire/release_console_mutex()

this commit makes things use more neutral function names
which dont make implications about the underlying lock.

the only real change is the return value of console_trylock
which is inverted from try_acquire_console_sem()

Why not just change the functionality of the existing function to be a
mutex in the rt patches, instead of having to rename it everywhere?

I don't mind this rename, but is it really going to help anything out?
What's the odds of the -rt portion of this patch ever making it to
mainline?

thanks,

i hope that Thomas already did this in his upcoming -rt series.

the -rt portion only changes the semaphore to a mutex.
since the console_sem is used with mutex semantics, i dont see any
reason, not to merge that portion too. 

i am just trying to shrink the -rt patch to make it more maintanable :)

Yeah, I think it's a better name and if we can indeed switch that
semaphore to a mutex then that's a good thing to do.

include/linux/mutex.h:

/*
 * NOTE: mutex_trylock() follows the spin_trylock() convention,
 *       not the down_trylock() convention!
 *
 * Returns 1 if the mutex has been acquired successfully, and 0 on contention.
 */
extern int mutex_trylock(struct mutex *lock);

So that's why the return value was inverted (when treating it as a boolean).
I can understand that.

However:

+/**
+ * console_trylock - try to lock the console system for exclusive use.
+ *
+ * Tried to acquire a lock which guarantees that the caller has
+ * exclusive access to the console system and the console_drivers list.
+ *
+ * returns -1 on success, and 0 on failure to acquire the lock.
+ */
+int console_trylock(void)

So this one returns -1 on success, not 1? Why?
