Re: [dm-devel] [PATCH v3 01/17] hashtable: introduce a small and naive hashtable



Hello, Sasha.

Shouldn't this be something like the following?

#define DEFINE_HASHTABLE(name, bits)					\
	struct hlist_head name[HASH_SIZE(bits)] =			\
		{ [0 ... HASH_SIZE(bits) - 1] = HLIST_HEAD_INIT };

Also, given that the declaration isn't non-trivial, you'll probably
want a matching DECLARE_HASHTABLE() macro too.

Why is the branching condition sizeof(val) == 4 instead of <= 4?
Also, no biggie but why isn't this macro in caps?

It would be nice if the comments actually say something which can
differentiate the two.  Ditto for rcu variants.

Or maybe we're better off with hash_head_size() and hash_head()?  I'll
expand on it later.  Please bear with me.

As the 'h' in hlist* stand for hash anyway and I think this type of
thin wrappers tend to obfuscate more than anything else.

If we do that, we can remove all these thin wrappers.

And also all these.  We'd only need hash_for_each_head() and
hash_head().  hash_for_each_possible*() could be nice for convenience,
I suppose.

I think the almost trivial nature of hlist hashtables makes this a bit
tricky and I'm not very sure but having this combinatory explosion is
a bit dazzling when the same functionality can be achieved by simply
combining operations which are already defined and named considering
hashtable.  I'm not feeling too strong about this tho.  What do others
think?

Also, can you please audit the comments on top of each macro?  They
have wrong names and don't differentiate the different variants very
well.

Thanks.
