Hi,

The goal is this patch series is to decouple TWA_SIGNAL based task_work
from real signals and signal delivery. The motivation is speeding up
TWA_SIGNAL based task_work, particularly for threaded setups where
->sighand is shared across threads. See the last patch for numbers.

Cleanups in this series, see changelog. But the arch and cleanup
series that goes after this series is much simpler now that we handle
TIF_NOTIFY_SIGNAL generically for !CONFIG_GENERIC_ENTRY.


Changes since v5:
- Don't make TIF_NOTIFY_SIGNAL dependent on CONFIG_GENERIC_ENTRY
- Handle TIF_NOTIFY_SIGNAL in get_signal() for !CONFIG_GENERIC_ENTRY
- Add handle_signal_work(), and change arch_do_signal() to
  arch_do_signal_or_restart() and pass in a 'has_signal' bool for that
- Dropped TIF_NOTIFY_RESUME patch from this series, sent out
  separately.

This is in preparation for maintaining signal_pending() as the decider
of whether or not a schedule() loop should be broken, or continue
sleeping. This is different than the core signal use cases, where we
really want to know if an actual signal is pending or not.
task_sigpending() returns non-zero if TIF_SIGPENDING is set.

Only core kernel use cases should care about the distinction between
the two, make sure those use the task_sigpending() helper.

This adds TIF_NOTIFY_SIGNAL handling in the generic code, which if set,
will return true if signal_pending() is used in a wait loop. That causes
an exit of the loop so that notify_signal tracehooks can be run. If the
wait loop is currently inside a system call, the system call is restarted
once task_work has been processed.

In preparation for only having arch_do_signal() handle syscall restarts
if _TIF_SIGPENDING isn't set, rename it to arch_do_signal_or_restart().
Pass in a boolean that tells the arch signal handler if it should attempt
to get a signal, or just process a potential syscall restart.

For !CONFIG_GENERIC_ENTRY archs, we add the TIF_NOTIFY_SIGNAL handling
to get_signal(). This is done to minimize the needed arch changes to
support this feature.

All we need to do is define _TIF_NOTIFY_SIGNAL, the generic entry code
already handles everything else for us.

If the arch supports TIF_NOTIFY_SIGNAL, then use that for TWA_SIGNAL as
it's more efficient than using the signal delivery method. This is
especially true on threaded applications, where ->sighand is shared
across threads, but it's also lighter weight on non-shared cases.

io_uring is a heavy consumer of TWA_SIGNAL based task_work. On my test
box, even just using 16 threads shows a nice improvement running an
io_uring based echo server.

stock kernel:
0.01% <= 0.1 milliseconds
95.86% <= 0.2 milliseconds
98.27% <= 0.3 milliseconds
99.71% <= 0.4 milliseconds
100.00% <= 0.5 milliseconds
100.00% <= 0.6 milliseconds
100.00% <= 0.7 milliseconds
100.00% <= 0.8 milliseconds
100.00% <= 0.9 milliseconds
100.00% <= 1.0 milliseconds
100.00% <= 1.1 milliseconds
100.00% <= 2 milliseconds
100.00% <= 3 milliseconds
100.00% <= 3 milliseconds
1378930.00 requests per second
~1600% CPU

1.38M requests/second, and all 16 CPUs are maxed out.

patched kernel:
0.01% <= 0.1 milliseconds
98.24% <= 0.2 milliseconds
99.47% <= 0.3 milliseconds
99.99% <= 0.4 milliseconds
100.00% <= 0.5 milliseconds
100.00% <= 0.6 milliseconds
100.00% <= 0.7 milliseconds
100.00% <= 0.8 milliseconds
100.00% <= 0.9 milliseconds
100.00% <= 1.2 milliseconds
1666111.38 requests per second
~1450% CPU

1.67M requests/second, and we're no longer just hammering on the sighand
lock. The original reporter states:

"For 5.7.15 my benchmark achieves 1.6M qps and system cpu is at ~80%.
 for 5.7.16 or later it achieves only 1M qps and the system cpu is is
 at ~100%"

with the only difference there being that TWA_SIGNAL is used
unconditionally in 5.7.16, since we need it to be able to solve an
inability to run task_work if the application is waiting in the kernel
already on an event that needs task_work run to be satisfied. Also
see commit 0ba9c9edcd15.

Any objections to this one? I just rebased this one and the full arch
series that sits on top for -git, but apart from that, no changes.

Thomas, would be nice to know if you're good with patch 2+3 at this
point. Once we get outside of the merge window next week, I'll post
the updated series since we get a few conflicts at this point, and
would be great if you could carry this for 5.11.
