Subject: [PATCH 2/3] KVM: X86: Bail out of direct yield in case of undercomitted scenarios
Date: Sat,  8 May 2021 17:31:49 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1620466310-8428-2-git-send-email-wanpengli@tencent.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1620466310-8428-1-git-send-email-wanpengli@tencent.com>

From: Wanpeng Li <wanpengli@tencent.com>

In case of undercomitted scenarios, vCPU can get scheduling easily, 
kvm_vcpu_yield_to adds extra overhead, we can observe a lot of race 
between vcpu->ready is true and yield fails due to p->state is 
TASK_RUNNING. Let's bail out is such scenarios by checking the length 
of current cpu runqueue.
