[lvm-devel] LVM2 ./WHATS_NEW daemons/clvmd/clvmd.c



CVSROOT:	/cvs/lvm2
Module name:	LVM2
Changes by:	zkabelac sourceware org	2011-10-11 09:26:04

Modified files:
	.              : WHATS_NEW 
	daemons/clvmd  : clvmd.c 

Log message:
	Use barrier instead of mutex
	
	Barrier is supposed to be used in situation like this
	and replace tricky mutex usage, where mutex has been unlocked
	by a different thread than the locking thread.

 Version 2.02.89 - 
 ==================================
+  Use pthread_barrier to synchronize clvmd threads at startup.
   Limit clvmd's thread size to 128KiB.
   Reduce default preallocated stack size to 64KiB.
   Add check for access through NULL pointer when refresh_filter() fails.
