[PATCH] vsock/virtio: annotate 'the_virtio_vsock' RCU pointer
Commit 0deab087b16a ("vsock/virtio: use RCU to avoid use-after-free on the_virtio_vsock") starts to use RCU to protect 'the_virtio_vsock' pointer, but we forgot to annotate it. This patch adds the annotation to fix the following sparse errors: net/vmw_vsock/virtio_transport.c:73:17: error: incompatible types in com...

[PATCH] vhost: rcu annotation fixup
When built with rcu checks enabled, vhost triggers bogus warnings as vhost features are read without dev->mutex sometimes. Fixing it properly is not trivial as vhost.h does not know which lockdep classes it will be used under. Disable the warning by stubbing out the check for now. Signed-off-by: Michael S. Tsirkin...
