Subject: [PATCH RFC 00/14] kvm/arm: Align the VMID allocation with the arm64 ASID one
Date: Thu, 21 Mar 2019 16:36:09 +0000
Message-ID: <20190321163623.20219-1-julien.grall@arm.com> (raw)

This patch series is moving out the ASID allocator in a separate file in order
to re-use it for the VMID. The benefits are:
    - CPUs are not forced to exit a roll-over.
    - Context invalidation is now per-CPU rather than
      broadcasted.

There are no performance regression on the fastpath for ASID allocation.
Actually on the hackbench measurement (300 hackbench) it was .7% faster.

The measurement was made on a Seattle based SoC (8 CPUs), with the
number of VMID limited to 4-bit. The test involves running concurrently 40
guests with 2 vCPUs. Each guest will then execute hackbench 5 times
before exiting.

The performance difference between the current algo and the new one are:
    - 2.5% less exit from the guest
    - 22.4% more flush, although they are now local rather than
    broadcasted
    - 0.11% faster (just for the record)

The ASID allocator rework to make it generic has been divided in multiple
patches to make the review easier.

A branch with the patch based on 5.1-rc1 can be found:

Cheers,

Julien Grall (14):
