Subject: [PATCH v9 0/5] vfs: Use dlock list for SB's s_inodes list
Date: Wed, 12 Sep 2018 15:28:47 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1536780532-4092-1-git-send-email-longman@redhat.com> (raw)

 v8->v9:
  - The last 2 patches in v8 were dropped because there is no more
    user that can use them.
  - Include Davidlohr's dlock_lists_empty() scaling patch.
  - Rebase the code to 4.19-rc3.

 v8 patch: https://lkml.org/lkml/2017/10/31/776

This patchset has been dormant for almost a year. Now I am going to
restart it again.

This patchset provides new APIs for a set of distributed locked lists
(one/CPU core) to minimize lock and cacheline contention. Insertion
and deletion to the list will be cheap and relatively contention free.
Lookup, on the other hand, may be a bit more costly as there are
multiple lists to iterate. This is not really a problem for the
replacement of superblock's inode list by dlock list included in
the patchset as lookup isn't needed.

Patch 1 introduces the dlock list. The list heads are allocated
by kcalloc() instead of percpu_alloc(). Each list head entry is
cacheline aligned to minimize contention.

Patch 2 replaces the use of list_for_each_entry_safe() in
evict_inodes() and invalidate_inodes() by list_for_each_entry().

Patch 3 modifies the superblock and inode structures to use the dlock
list. The corresponding functions that reference those structures
are modified.

Patch 4 makes the sibling CPUs use the same dlock list head to reduce
the number of list heads that need to be iterated.

Patch 5 improves the performance of dlock_lists_empty() call.

See patch 3 for some performance data for this patchset.
