As of now, the asym_cpu_capacity_level will try to locate the lowest
topology level where the highest available CPU capacity is being
visible to all CPUs. This works perfectly fine for most of existing
asymmetric designs out there, though for some possible and completely
valid setups, combining different cpu microarchitectures within
clusters, this might not be the best approach, resulting in pointing
at a level, at which some of the domains might not see any asymmetry
at all. This could be problematic for misfit migration and/or energy
aware placement. And as such, for affected platforms it might result
in custom changes to wake-up and CPU selection paths.

As mentioned in the previous version, based on the available sources out there,
one of the potentially affected (by original approach) platforms might be
Exynos 9820/990 with it's 'sliced' LLC(SLC) divided between the two custom (big)
cores and the remaining A75/A55 cores, which seems to be reflected in the
made available dt entries for those platforms.

The following patches rework how the asymmetric detection is being
carried out, allowing pinning the asymmetric topology level to the lowest one,
where full range of CPU capacities is visible to all CPUs within given
sched domain. The asym_cpu_capacity_level will also keep track of those
levels where any scope of asymmetry is being observed, to denote
corresponding sched domains with the SD_ASYM_CPUCAPACITY flag
and to enable misfit migration for those.

In order to distinguish the sched domains with partial vs full range
of CPU capacity asymmetry, new sched domain flag has been introduced:
SD_ASYM_CPUCAPACITY_FULL.

The overall idea of changing the asymmetry detection has been suggested
by Valentin Schneider <valentin.schneider@arm.com>

Verified on (mostly):
    - QEMU (version 4.2.1) with variants of possible asymmetric topologies
	- machine: virt
	- modifying the device-tree 'cpus' node for virt machine:

	qemu-system-aarch64 -kernel $KERNEL_IMG
	    -drive format=qcow2,file=$IMAGE
	    -append 'root=/dev/vda earlycon console=ttyAMA0 sched_debug
	     sched_verbose loglevel=15 kmemleak=on' -m 2G  --nographic
	    -cpu cortex-a57 -machine virt -smp cores=8
	    -machine dumpdtb=$CUSTOM_DTB.dtb

	$KERNEL_PATH/scripts/dtc/dtc -I dtb -O dts $CUSTOM_DTB.dts >
	$CUSTOM_DTB.dtb

	(modify the dts)

	$KERNEL_PATH/scripts/dtc/dtc -I dts -O dtb $CUSTOM_DTB.dts >
	$CUSTOM_DTB.dtb

	qemu-system-aarch64 -kernel $KERNEL_IMG
	    -drive format=qcow2,file=$IMAGE
	    -append 'root=/dev/vda earlycon console=ttyAMA0 sched_debug
	     sched_verbose loglevel=15 kmemleak=on' -m 2G  --nographic
	    -cpu cortex-a57 -machine virt -smp cores=8
	    -machine dtb=$CUSTOM_DTB.dtb

v5:
 - building CPUs list based on their capacity now triggered upon init
   and explicit request from arch specific code to rebuild sched domains
 - detecting asymmetry scope now done directly in sd_init
v4:
 - Based on Peter's idea, reworking asym detection to use per-cpu
   capacity list to serve as base for determining the asym scope
v3:
 - Additional style/doc fixes
v2:
 - Fixed style issues
 - Reworked accessing the cached topology data as suggested by Valentin

Introducing new, complementary to SD_ASYM_CPUCAPACITY, sched_domain
topology flag, to distinguish between shed_domains where any CPU
capacity asymmetry is detected (SD_ASYM_CPUCAPACITY) and ones where
a full set of CPU capacities is visible to all domain members
(SD_ASYM_CPUCAPACITY_FULL).

With the distinction between full and partial CPU capacity asymmetry,
brought in by the newly introduced flag, the scope of the original
SD_ASYM_CPUCAPACITY flag gets shifted, still maintaining the existing
behaviour when one is detected on a given sched domain, allowing
misfit migrations within sched domains that do not observe full range
of CPU capacities but still do have members with different capacity
values. It loses though it's meaning when it comes to the lowest CPU
asymmetry sched_domain level per-cpu pointer, which is to be now
denoted by SD_ASYM_CPUCAPACITY_FULL flag.

Currently the CPU capacity asymmetry detection, performed through
asym_cpu_capacity_level, tries to identify the lowest topology level
at which the highest CPU capacity is being observed, not necessarily
finding the level at which all possible capacity values are visible
to all CPUs, which might be bit problematic for some possible/valid
asymmetric topologies i.e.:

DIE      [                                ]
MC       [                       ][       ]

CPU       [0] [1] [2] [3] [4] [5]  [6] [7]
Capacity  |.....| |.....| |.....|  |.....|
	     L	     M       B        B

Where:
 arch_scale_cpu_capacity(L) = 512
 arch_scale_cpu_capacity(M) = 871
 arch_scale_cpu_capacity(B) = 1024

In this particular case, the asymmetric topology level will point
at MC, as all possible CPU masks for that level do cover the CPU
with the highest capacity. It will work just fine for the first
cluster, not so much for the second one though (consider the
find_energy_efficient_cpu which might end up attempting the energy
aware wake-up for a domain that does not see any asymmetry at all)

Rework the way the capacity asymmetry levels are being detected,
allowing to point to the lowest topology level (for a given CPU), where
full set of available CPU capacities is visible to all CPUs within given
domain. As a result, the per-cpu sd_asym_cpucapacity might differ across
the domains. This will have an impact on EAS wake-up placement in a way
that it might see different rage of CPUs to be considered, depending on
the given current and target CPUs.

Additionally, those levels, where any range of asymmetry (not
necessarily full) is being detected will get identified as well.
The selected asymmetric topology level will be denoted by
SD_ASYM_CPUCAPACITY_FULL sched domain flag whereas the 'sub-levels'
would receive the already used SD_ASYM_CPUCAPACITY flag. This allows
maintaining the current behaviour for asymmetric topologies, with
misfit migration operating correctly on lower levels, if applicable,
as any asymmetry is enough to trigger the misfit migration.
The logic there relies on the SD_ASYM_CPUCAPACITY flag and does not
relate to the full asymmetry level denoted by the sd_asym_cpucapacity
pointer.

Detecting the CPU capacity asymmetry is being based on a set of
available CPU capacities for all possible CPUs. This data is being
generated upon init and updated once CPU topology changes are being
detected (through arch_update_cpu_topology). As such, any changes
to identified CPU capacities (like initializing cpufreq) need to be
explicitly advertised by corresponding archs to trigger rebuilding
the data.

This patch also removes the additional -dflags- parameter used when
building sched domains as the asymmetry flags are now being set
directly in sd_init.

Few nits below, but beyond that:

Readability nit: That could be made into an else if ().

That 'if' is only there in case the alloc within the helper failed, which
is a bit of a shame.

You could pass the CPU to that helper function and have it set the right
bit, or you could even forgo the capacity != entry->capacity check here and
let the helper function do it all.

Yes, that means more asym_cap_list iterations, but that's
O(nr_cpus * nr_caps); a topology rebuild is along the lines of
O(nr_cpus² * nr_topology_levels), so not such a big deal comparatively.

I would kind of ... disagree.
All the commit msg is constructed using passive structure, the suggestion
would actually break that. And it does 'sound' bit imperative but I guess
that is subjective. I'd rather stay with impersonal structure (which is
applied through out the whole patchset).

It could but then this way the -comment- gets more exposed.
But that might be my personal perception so I can change that.

I could drop that check and make the helper function update the CPUs mask
(along with dropping the initial grabbing of the first entry)

switching to list_for_each_entry_reverse which would result in less
iterations for most (if not all) of the use cases.

Ignore the 'reverse' idea - the items are already prepended so regular
iteration should pick the last item added.

Not sure if this has been discussed already but shouldn't the flexible

If I got right the discussion you have pointed to, it was about using
cpumask_var_t which is not the case here. I do not mind moving the code
to use the array but I am not sure if this changes much. Looking at the
code changes to support that (to_cpumask namely) it was introduced for
cases where cpumask_var_t was not appropriate, which again isn't the case
here.

It's mainly about the 'This patch' formulation, some take exception to that :-)

As always those are quite subjective! Methink something like this would
still draw attention to the offline case:

               /*
                * Count how many unique capacities this domain covers. If a
                * capacity isn't covered, we need to check if any CPU with

                * ignored.
                */
                if (cpumask_intersects(sched_domain_span(sd), entry->cpu_mask)) {
                        ++asym_cap_count;
                } else if (cpumask_intersects(entry->cpu_mask, cpu_map)) {
                        sd_asym_flags &= ~SD_ASYM_CPUCAPACITY_FULL;
                        if (asym_cap_count > 1)
                                break;

Yeah, it was more about using `flexible array members` or allocating the
cpumask separately.

Looks like you're using some kind of a mixed approach:

(1) struct asym_cap_data {
        ...
        struct cpumask *cpu_mask;

(2) entry = kzalloc(sizeof(*entry) + cpumask_size(), GFP_KERNEL);

(3) entry->cpu_mask = (struct cpumask *)((char *)entry +
                      sizeof(*entry));

(4) cpumask_intersects(foo, entry->cpu_mask)


E.g. struct em_perf_domain has

(1)  struct em_perf_domain {
         ...
         unsigned long cpus[];

(2) like yours

(3) is not needed.

IMHO, it's better to keep this approach aligned between the different
data structures.

I would actually go the other way round as it seems more 'clean'
that way and it does not need the conversion but I don't mind playing along.

For me asym_cpu_capacity_classify() is pretty hard to digest ;-) But I
wasn't able to break it. It also performs correctly on (non-existing SMT)
layer (with sd span eq. single CPU).

Something like this (separating asym_cap_list iteration and flags
construction would be easier for me. But like already said here,
it's subjective.
I left the two optimizations (list_is_singular(), break on asym_cap_count
> 1) out for now. asym_cap_list shouldn't have > 4 entries (;-)).

static inline int
asym_cpu_capacity_classify(struct sched_domain *sd, 
                           const struct cpumask *cpu_map)
{
        int sd_span_match = 0, cpu_map_match = 0, flags = 0; 
        struct asym_cap_data *entry;

        list_for_each_entry(entry, &asym_cap_list, link) {
                if (cpumask_intersects(sched_domain_span(sd), entry->cpu_mask))
                        ++sd_span_match;
                else if (cpumask_intersects(cpu_map, entry->cpu_mask))
                        ++cpu_map_match;
        }

        WARN_ON_ONCE(!sd_span_match);

        if (sd_span_match > 1) { 
                flags |= SD_ASYM_CPUCAPACITY;
                if (!cpu_map_match)
                        flags |= SD_ASYM_CPUCAPACITY_FULL;
        }

        return flags;
}

BTW, how would this mechanism behave on a system with SMT and asymmetric CPU
capacity? Something EAS wouldn't allow but I guess asym_cap_list will be
constructed and the SD_ASYM_CPUCAPACITY_XXX flags will be set?

So I planned to drop the list_is_singular check as it is needless really.
Otherwise, I am not really convinced by the suggestion. I could add comments
around current version to make it more ..... 'digestible' but I'd rather
stay with it as it seems more compact to me (subjective).

Yes, the list would get created and flags set. I do not think there is
a difference with current approach (?). So EAS would be disabled (it only cares
about SD_ASYM_CPUCAPACITY_FULL flag) but the misift might still kick in.

That depends on the arch_scale_cpu_capacity. I would imagine it would
return SCHED_CAPACITY_SCALE for those, which means no asymmetry will
be detected ?

You could pass in `const struct cpumask *sd_span` instead of `struct
sched_domain *sd` though. To make it clear that both masks are used to
compare against the cpumasks of the asym_cap_list entries.

I was thinking about an erroneous dts file like:

                cpu-map {
                        cluster0 {
                                core0 {
					thread0 {
                                        	cpu = <&A53_0>;
					};
					thread1 {
                                        	cpu = <&A53_1>;
					};
                                };
                                core1 {
					thread0 {
                                        	cpu = <&A53_2>;
					};
					thread1 {
                                        	cpu = <&A53_3>;
					};
                                };
                                core2 {
					thread0 {
                                        	cpu = <&A53_4>;
					};
					thread1 {
                                        	cpu = <&A53_5>;
					};
                                };
                        };

                        cluster1 {
                                core0 {
					thread0 {
                                        	cpu = <&A53_6>;
					};
					thread1 {
                                        	cpu = <&A53_7>;
					};
                                };
                        };
                };

		A53_0: cpu@0 {
			capacity-dmips-mhz = <446>;
	 	A53_1: cpu@1 {
			capacity-dmips-mhz = <1024>;
		A53_2: cpu@2 {
			capacity-dmips-mhz = <871>;
		A53_3: cpu@3 {
			capacity-dmips-mhz = <1024>;
		A53_4: cpu@4 {
			capacity-dmips-mhz = <446>;
		A53_5: cpu@5 {
			capacity-dmips-mhz = <871>;
		A53_6: cpu@6 {
			capacity-dmips-mhz = <1024>;
		A53_7: cpu@7 {
			capacity-dmips-mhz = <1024>;

Here I guess SD_ASYM_CPUCAPACITY will be attached to SMT[0-5]. So this
'capacity-dmips-mhz' config error won't be detected.

In case all CPUs (i.e. hw threads would have the correct
capacity-dmips-mhz = <1024> or not being set (default 1024))
asym_cap_list would corrcetly only have 1 entry.

We could possibly add a warning (like in EAS) if the asymmetry is detected
for SMT which would give some indication that there is smth ... wrong ?

I could definitely do that, though if I switch to arrays for CPUs masks,
it might get a bit confusing again.
No strong preferences here though. Can do either or both.

This is the simplest form I could come up with this morning:

static inline int
asym_cpu_capacity_classify(struct sched_domain *sd,
                          const struct cpumask *cpu_map)
{
	struct asym_cap_data *entry;
	int i = 0, n = 0;

	list_for_each_entry(entry, &asym_cap_list, link) {
		if (cpumask_intersects(sched_domain_span(sd), entry->cpu_mask))
			i++;
		else
			n++;
	}

	if (WARN_ON_ONCE(!i) || i == 1) /* no asymmetry */
		return 0;

	if (n) /* partial asymmetry */
		return SD_ASYM_CPUCAPACITY;

	/* full asymmetry */
	return SD_ASYM_CPUCAPACITY | SD_ASYM_CPUCAPACITY_FULL;
}


The early termination and everything was cute; but this isn't
performance critical code and clarity is paramount.

This is definitely easier to grasp.

What about the missing `if (cpumask_intersects(entry->cpu_mask,
cpu_map))` condition in the else path to increment n?

Example:

cpus = {[446 446] [871 871] [1024 1024]}

So 3 asym_cap_list entries.

After hp'ing out CPU4 and CPU5:

DIE: 'partial asymmetry'

In case we would increment n only when the condition is met, we would
have `full asymmetry`.

I guess we want to allow EAS task placement, hence have
sd_asym_cpucapacity set in case there are only 446 and 871 left?

I will rewrite the function as per all the suggestions and make things ....

Maybe, in case you find an easy way to detect this.

But the issue already exists today. Not with the topology mentioned
above but in case we slightly change it to:

  cpus = { ([446 1024] [871 1024] [446 1024] ) ([1024 1024]) }
                                       ^^^^
so that we have a 1024 CPU in the lowest sd for each CPU, we would get
SD_ASYM_CPUCAPACITY on SMT.

The asymmetry capacity flags are being set on a sched domain level, so
we could use the SD_SHARE_CPUCAPACITY|SD_SHARE_PKG_RESOURCES (cpu_smt_flags)
flags to determine if having asymmetry is valid or not ? If this is enough 
this could be handled by the classify function?

Or maybe something directly in sd_init(), like the WARN_ONCE() which triggers
if somebody wants to sneak in a ~topology flag via a
sched_domain_topology_level table? 

IMHO checking `SD_SHARE_CPUCAPACITY | SD_ASYM_CPUCAPACITY` will be sufficient
here.

In case we can agree on something simple here I guess you can incorporate it into v7.

So what I have done is :

diff --git a/kernel/sched/topology.c b/kernel/sched/topology.c
index 77e6f79235ad..ec4ae225687e 100644
--- a/kernel/sched/topology.c
+++ b/kernel/sched/topology.c
@@ -1324,6 +1324,7 @@ asym_cpu_capacity_classify(struct sched_domain *sd,
        if (!asym_cap_miss)
                sd_asym_flags |= SD_ASYM_CPUCAPACITY_FULL;
 
+       WARN_ONCE(cpu_smt_flags() & sd->flags, "Detected CPU capacity asymmetry on SMT level");
 leave:
        return sd_asym_flags;
 }

Comment can be adjusted.
This would sit in the classify function to nicely wrap asymmetry bits in one
place. What do you think ?

... and you would need to pass in the sched domain pointer ;-)

Still prefer to check it in sd_init() since there is where we set the flags.

But you can't do 'cpu_smt_flags() & sd->flags'. MC level would hit too,
since it has SD_SHARE_PKG_RESOURCES as well.

Yes, as that was for current version.

Yeah, I would need to check:
	cpu_smt_flags() & sd->flags == cpu_smt_flags()
and if I am to move it to sd_init then additionally checking for 
SD_ASYM_CPUCAPACITY ... and #ifdef for SMT .....
so I guess I will go with your proposal using the SD_SHARE_CPUCAPACITY directly.
Will update in the v7.
