Opening Mood: Good Morning! Gosh, it’s already Good Afternoon.
Opening Song: Swadesh (title song)
After spending two consecutive nights going through the implementation of Read Copy Update (RCU), both classic and preemptible, and trying to find a flaw in vain, I am kind of exhausted. And very impressed. RCU is twisted, yet so simple. I read elsewhere, that maybe the human mind wasn’t cut out for designing parallel algorithms. We tend to think in a more sequential fashion. (Probably which is why folks back in college, find linked list algorithms simpler than an RB tree!!)
I guess RCU is one of the exceptions to this theory!
Cheers to a Happy Weekend ahead!!!
Closing Mood: Memory barriers… they’re for real!
Closing Song: Bin tere kya hai jeena (Woh Lamhe)
