Subject: [PATCH v5 5/6] powerpc: Chunk calls to flush_dcache_range in arch_*_memory
Date: Mon,  4 Nov 2019 13:32:57 +1100
Message-ID: <20191104023305.9581-6-alastair@au1.ibm.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20191104023305.9581-1-alastair@au1.ibm.com>

From: Alastair D'Silva <alastair@d-silva.org>

When presented with large amounts of memory being hotplugged
(in my test case, ~890GB), the call to flush_dcache_range takes
a while (~50 seconds), triggering RCU stalls.

This patch breaks up the call into 1GB chunks, calling
cond_resched() inbetween to allow the scheduler to run.
