[PATCH 20/28] Drivers: hv: Get rid of the unused global signaling state

K. Y. Srinivasan kys at microsoft.com
Sat Dec 1 14:46:51 UTC 2012


Now that we have implemented a per-connection signaling mechanism, get rid
of the global signaling state. For hosts that don't support per-connection
signaling handle, we have moved the global state to be a per-channel state.
