Subject: [PATCH 1/3] powerpc/mm/hash: Avoid resizing-down HPT on first memory hotplug
Date: Fri, 12 Mar 2021 04:29:39 -0300
Message-ID: <20210312072940.598696-2-leobras.c@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210312072940.598696-1-leobras.c@gmail.com>

Because hypervisors may need to create HPTs without knowing the guest
page size, the smallest used page-size (4k) may be chosen, resulting in
a HPT that is possibly bigger than needed.

On a guest with bigger page-sizes, the amount of entries for HTP may be
too high, causing the guest to ask for a HPT resize-down on the first
hotplug.

This becomes a problem when HPT resize-down fails, and causes the
HPT resize to be performed on every LMB added, until HPT size is
compatible to guest memory size, causing a major slowdown.

So, avoiding HPT resizing-down on hot-add significantly improves memory
hotplug times.

As an example, hotplugging 256GB on a 129GB guest took 710s without this
patch, and 21s after applied.
