Subject[PATCH v2 3/4] ipc: introduce lockless pre_down ipcctl
From
Date
Various forms of ipc use the ipcctl_pre_down() function to
retrieve an ipc object and check permissions, mostly for IPC_RMID
and IPC_SET commands.

Introduce ipcctl_pre_down_nolock(), a lockless version of this function.
The locking version is maintained, yet modified to call the nolock version,
without affecting its semantics, thus transparent to all ipc callers.
