Message-ID: <> (raw);h=2574fdfc0f7ed7fe2586bd906e6076912af6cd86

commit 2574fdfc0f7ed7fe2586bd906e6076912af6cd86
Author: Jangwoong Kim <>

    nptl: Effectively skip CAS in spinlock loop
    The commit:
    "Add LLL_MUTEX_READ_LOCK [BZ #28537]"
    SHA1: d672a98a1af106bd68deb15576710cd61363f7a6
    introduced LLL_MUTEX_READ_LOCK, to skip CAS in spinlock loop
    if atomic load fails. But, "continue" inside of do-while loop
    does not skip the evaluation of escape expression, thus CAS
    is not skipped.
    Replace do-while with while and skip LLL_MUTEX_TRYLOCK if
    Reviewed-by: H.J. Lu <>
    (cherry picked from commit 6b8dbbd03ac88f169b65b5c7d7278576a11d2e44)
