Subject: [PATCH RFC] blk-mq: Don't IPI requests on PREEMPT_RT
Date: Fri, 23 Oct 2020 13:04:00 +0200
Message-ID: <20201023110400.bx3uzsb7xy5jtsea@linutronix.de> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20201021175059.GA4989@hmbx>

blk_mq_complete_request_remote() will dispatch request completion to
another CPU via IPI if the CPU belongs to a different cache domain.

This breaks on PREEMPT_RT because the IPI function will complete the
request in IRQ context which includes acquiring spinlock_t typed locks.
Completing the IPI request in softirq on the remote CPU is probably less
efficient because it would require to wake ksoftirqd for this task
(which runs at SCHED_OTHER).

Ignoring the IPI request and completing the request locally is probably
the best option. It be completed either in the IRQ-thread or at the end
of the routine in softirq context.

Let blk_mq_complete_need_ipi() return that there is no need for IPI on
PREEMPT_RT.
