SubjectRe: [PATCH] drivers/net: Use RCU_INIT_POINTER(x, NULL) in bonding/bond_options.c
From: Monam Agarwal <>
Date: Mon, 24 Mar 2014 00:00:17 +0530

> This patch replaces rcu_assign_pointer(x, NULL) with RCU_INIT_POINTER(x, NULL)
> The rcu_assign_pointer() ensures that the initialization of a structure
> is carried out before storing a pointer to that structure.
> And in the case of the NULL pointer, there is no structure to initialize.
> So, rcu_assign_pointer(p, NULL) can be safely converted to RCU_INIT_POINTER(p, NULL)
