Subject: [PATCH v2 6/7] arch_topology, arm, arm64: define arch_scale_freq_invariant()
Date: Wed, 22 Jul 2020 10:37:31 +0100
Message-ID: <20200722093732.14297-7-ionela.voinescu@arm.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200722093732.14297-1-ionela.voinescu@arm.com>

From: Valentin Schneider <valentin.schneider@arm.com>

arch_scale_freq_invariant() is used by schedutil to determine whether
the scheduler's load-tracking signals are frequency invariant. Its
definition is overridable, though by default it is hardcoded to 'true'
if arch_scale_freq_capacity() is defined ('false' otherwise).

This behaviour is not overridden on arm, arm64 and other users of the
generic arch topology driver, which is somewhat precarious:
arch_scale_freq_capacity() will always be defined, yet not all cpufreq
drivers are guaranteed to drive the frequency invariance scale factor
setting. In other words, the load-tracking signals may very well *not*
be frequency invariant.

Now that cpufreq can be queried on whether the current driver is driving
the Frequency Invariance (FI) scale setting, the current situation can
be improved. This combines the query of whether cpufreq supports the
setting of the frequency scale factor, with whether all online CPUs are
counter-based FI enabled.

While cpufreq FI enablement applies at system level, for all CPUs,
counter-based FI support could also be used for only a subset of CPUs to
set the invariance scale factor. Therefore, if cpufreq-based FI support
is present, we consider the system to be invariant. If missing, we
require all online CPUs to be counter-based FI enabled in order for the
full system to be considered invariant.

If the system ends up not being invariant, a new condition is needed in
the counter initialization code that disables all scale factor setting
based on counters.

Precedence of counters over cpufreq use is not important here. The
invariant status is only given to the system if all CPUs have at least
one method of setting the frequency scale factor.
