Patches 1-2: Introduces new arch-generic functions to use before
and after lockless pagetable walks, instead of local_irq_*, and
applies them to generic code. It makes lockless pagetable walks
more explicit and improves documentation about it.

Patches 3-9: Introduces a powerpc-specific version of the above
functions with the option to not touch irq config. Then apply them
to all powerpc code that do lockless pagetable walks.

Patches 10-11: Introduces a percpu counting method to keep track of
the lockless page table walks, then uses this info to reduce the
waiting time on serialize_against_pte_lookup().

Use case:

If a process (qemu) with a lot of CPUs (128) try to munmap() a large
chunk of memory (496GB) mapped with THP, it takes an average of 275
seconds, which can cause a lot of problems to the load (in qemu case,
the guest will lock for this time).

Trying to find the source of this bug, I found out most of this time is
spent on serialize_against_pte_lookup(). This function will take a lot
of time in smp_call_function_many() if there is more than a couple CPUs
running the user process. Since it has to happen to all THP mapped, it
will take a very long time for large amounts of memory.

By the docs, serialize_against_pte_lookup() is needed in order to avoid
pmd_t to pte_t casting inside find_current_mm_pte(), or any lockless
pagetable walk, to happen concurrently with THP splitting/collapsing.

It does so by calling a do_nothing() on each CPU in mm->cpu_bitmap[],
after interrupts are re-enabled.
Since, interrupts are (usually) disabled during lockless pagetable
walk, and serialize_against_pte_lookup will only return after
interrupts are enabled, it is protected.

Percpu count-based method:

So, by what I could understand, if there is no lockless pagetable walk
running on given cpu, there is no need to call
serialize_against_pte_lookup() there.

To reduce the cost of running serialize_against_pte_lookup(), I
propose a percpu-counter that keeps track of how many
lockless pagetable walks are currently running on each cpu, and if there
is none, just skip smp_call_function_many() for that cpu.

- Every percpu-counter can be changed only by it's own CPU
- It makes use of the original memory barrier in the functions
- Any counter can be read by any CPU

Due to not locking nor using atomic variables, the impact on the
lockless pagetable walk is intended to be minimum.

The related functions are:
begin_lockless_pgtbl_walk()
        Insert before starting any lockless pgtable walk
end_lockless_pgtbl_walk()
        Insert after the end of any lockless pgtable walk
        (Mostly after the ptep is last used)

Results:

On my workload (qemu), I could see munmap's time reduction from 275
seconds to 430ms.

Bonus:

I documented some lockless pagetable walks in which it's not
necessary to keep track, given they work on init_mm or guest pgd.

Also fixed some misplaced local_irq_{restore, enable}.

Changes since v5:
 Changed counting approach from atomic variables to percpu variables
 Counting method only affects powepc, arch-generic only toggle irqs
 Changed commit order, so the counting method is introduced at the end
 Removed config option, always enabled in powerpc
 Rebased on top of v5.5

Changes since v4:
 Rebased on top of v5.4-rc1

 More documentation inside the funtions.
 Some irq masks variables renamed
 Removed some proxy mm_structs
 Few typos fixed
 Link: http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/project/linuxppc-dev/list/?series=133015

It's necessary to track lockless pagetable walks, in order to avoid doing
THP splitting/collapsing during them.

The default solution is to disable irq before lockless pagetable walks and
enable it after it's finished.

On code, this means you can find local_irq_disable() and local_irq_enable()
around some pieces of code, usually without comments on why it is needed.

This patch proposes a set of generic functions to be called before starting
and after finishing a lockless pagetable walk. It is supposed to make clear
that a lockless pagetable walk happens there, and also carries information
on why the irq disable/enable is needed.

begin_lockless_pgtbl_walk()
        Insert before starting any lockless pgtable walk
end_lockless_pgtbl_walk()
        Insert after the end of any lockless pgtable walk
        (Mostly after the ptep is last used)

A memory barrier was also added just to make sure there is no speculative
read outside the interrupt disabled area. Other than that, it is not
supposed to have any change of behavior from current code.

It is planned to allow arch-specific versions, so that additional steps can
be added while keeping the code clean.

As described, gup_pgd_range is a lockless pagetable walk. So, in order to
track against THP split/collapse, it disables/enables irq around it.

To make use of the new tracking functions, it replaces irq disable/enable
by {begin,end}_lockless_pgtbl_walk().

As local_irq_{save,restore} is present inside
{begin,end}_lockless_pgtbl_walk, there should be no change in the
workings.

On powerpc, we need to do some lockless pagetable walks from functions
that already have disabled interrupts, specially from real mode with
MSR[EE=0].

In these contexts, disabling/enabling interrupts can be very troubling.

So, this arch-specific implementation features functions with an extra
argument that allows interrupt enable/disable to be skipped:
__begin_lockless_pgtbl_walk() and __end_lockless_pgtbl_walk().

Functions similar to the generic ones are also exported, by calling
the above functions with parameter {en,dis}able_irq = true.

Applies the new functions used for tracking lockless pgtable walks on
addr_to_pfn().

local_irq_{save,restore} is already inside {begin,end}_lockless_pgtbl_walk,
so there is no need to repeat it here.

Applies the new functions used for tracking lockless pgtable walks on
read_user_stack_slow.

local_irq_{save,restore} is already inside {begin,end}_lockless_pgtbl_walk,
so there is no need to repeat it here.

Variable that saves the irq mask was renamed from flags to irq_mask so it
doesn't lose meaning now it's not directly passed to local_irq_* functions.

Applies the new tracking functions to all hash-related functions that do
lockless pagetable walks.

hash_page_mm: Adds comment that explain that there is no need to
local_int_disable/save given that it is only called from DataAccess
interrupt, so interrupts are already disabled.

local_irq_{save,restore} is already inside {begin,end}_lockless_pgtbl_walk,
so there is no need to repeat it here.

Variable that saves the	irq mask was renamed from flags to irq_mask so it
doesn't lose meaning now it's not directly passed to local_irq_* functions.

Applies the new functions used for tracking lockless pgtable walks on
kvmppc_e500_shadow_map().

Fixes the place where local_irq_restore() is called: previously, if ptep
was NULL, local_irq_restore() would never be called.

local_irq_{save,restore} is already inside {begin,end}_lockless_pgtbl_walk,
so there is no need to repeat it here.

Variable that saves the	irq mask was renamed from flags to irq_mask so it
doesn't lose meaning now it's not directly passed to local_irq_* functions.

Applies the new functions for tracking all book3s_hv related
functions that do lockless pagetable walks.

Adds comments explaining that some lockless pagetable walks don't need
protection due to guest pgd not being a target of THP collapse/split, or
due to being called from Realmode + MSR_EE = 0

kvmppc_do_h_enter: Fixes where local_irq_restore() must be placed (after
the last usage of ptep).

Given that some of these functions can be called in real mode, and others
always are, we use __{begin,end}_lockless_pgtbl_walk so we can decide when
to disable interrupts.

Applies the new tracking functions to all book3s_64 related
functions that do lockless pagetable walks.

Adds comments explaining that some lockless pagetable walks don't need
protection due to guest pgd not being a target of THP collapse/split, or
due to being called from Realmode + MSR_EE = 0.

Given that some of these functions always are called in realmode,  we use
__{begin,end}_lockless_pgtbl_walk so we can decide when to disable
interrupts.

local_irq_{save,restore} is already inside {begin,end}_lockless_pgtbl_walk,
so there is no need to repeat it here.

Variable that saves the	irq mask was renamed from flags to irq_mask so it
doesn't lose meaning now it's not directly passed to local_irq_* functions.

There are also a function that uses local_irq_{en,dis}able, so the return
value of begin_lockless_pgtbl_walk() is ignored and we pass IRQS_ENABLED to
end_lockless_pgtbl_walk() to mimic the effect of local_irq_enable().

Implements an additional feature to track lockless pagetable walks,
using a per-cpu counter: lockless_pgtbl_walk_counter.

Before a lockless pagetable walk, preemption is disabled and the
current cpu's counter is increased.
When the lockless pagetable walk finishes, the current cpu counter
is decreased and the preemption is enabled.

With that, it's possible to know in which cpus are happening lockless
pagetable walks, and optimize serialize_against_pte_lookup().

Implementation notes:
- Every counter can be changed only by it's CPU
- It makes use of the original memory barrier in the functions
- Any counter can be read by any CPU

Due to not locking nor using atomic variables, the impact on the
lockless pagetable walk is intended to be minimum.

For each cpu in cpumask, checks if it's running a lockless pagetable
walk. Then, run serialize_against_pte_lookup() only on these cpus.

serialize_agains_pte_lookup() can take a long while when there are a
lot of cpus in cpumask.

This method is intended to reduce this waiting, while not impacting
too much on the lockless pagetable walk.

Just noticed IRQS_ENABLED is not available on other archs than ppc64.
I will fix this for v7.

When interrupts are already disabled, the flag returned when disabling 
it will be such that when we restore it later, interrupts remain 
disabled, so what's the problem ?

Even more than begin_lockless_pgtbl_walk(), this one is worth being 
static inline in the H file.

Why change the name ? flags is a well known historical name.

Is that speculative barrier necessary for all architectures ? Does it 
impact performance ? Shouldn't this be another patch ?

What about keeping the same syntax as local_irq_save(), something like:

#define begin_lockless_pgtbl_walk(flags) \
do {
	local_irq_save(flags);
	smp_mb();
} while (0)

Same

#define end_lockless_pgtbl_walk(flags) \
do {
	smp_mb();
	local_irq_restore(flags);
} while (0);

Comments formatting is not in line with Linux kernel rules. Should be no 
text on the first /* line.

> +	__begin_lockless_pgtbl_walk(false);

I think it would be better to not use __begin_lockless_pgtbl_walk() 
directly but keep it in a single place, and define something like 
begin_lockless_pgtbl_walk_noirq() similar to begin_lockless_pgtbl_walk()

What's the point in changing the name of this label ? There is only one 
label, why polute the function with so huge name ?

For me, everyone understand what 'bail' means. Unneccessary changes 
should be avoided. If you really really want to do it, it should be 
another patch.

See kernel codying style, chapter 'naming':
"LOCAL variable names should be short". This also applies to labels.

"C is a Spartan language, and so should your naming be. Unlike Modula-2 
and Pascal programmers, C programmers do not use cute names like 
ThisVariableIsATemporaryCounter. A C programmer would call that variable 
tmp, which is much easier to write, and not the least more difficult to 
understand."

I don't really like unbalanced begin/end.

Something like the following would be cleaner:


begin_lockless_pgtbl_walk()
ptep = find()
if (ptep) {
	pte = READ_ONCE()
	if (pte_present(pte))
		wing=
	else
		ret = -EINVAL;
}
end_lockless_pgtbl_walk()

if (ret) {
	pr_err_rate...()
	goto out;

atomic variables have a lot less impact than preempt_enable/disable.

preemt_disable forces a re-scheduling, it really has impact. Why not use 
atomic variables instead ?

Hello Christophe, thanks for the feedback!

In fact, v5 of this patch used atomic variables. But it seems to cause
contention on a single exclusive cacheline, which had no better
performance than locking.
(discussion here: http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/1171012/)

When I try to understand the effect of preempt_disable(), all I can
see is a barrier() and possibly a preempt_count_inc(), which updates a
member of current thread struct if CONFIG_PREEMPT_COUNT is enabled.

If CONFIG_PREEMPTION is also enabled, preempt_enable() can run a
__preempt_schedule() on unlikely(__preempt_count_dec_and_test()).

On most configs available, CONFIG_PREEMPTION is not set, being replaced
either by CONFIG_PREEMPT_NONE (kernel defconfigs) or
CONFIG_PREEMPT_VOLUNTARY in most supported distros. With that, most
probably CONFIG_PREEMPT_COUNT will also not be set, and
preempt_{en,dis}able() are replaced by a barrier().

Using preempt_disable approach, I intent to get better performance for
most used cases.

What do you think of it?

I am still new on this subject, and I am still trying to better
understand how it works. If you notice something I am missing, please
let me know.

Best regards,
Leonardo Bras

It makes sense, better keep the code as much as possible as it was. If
any arch finds this barrier needed, it can implement it's own version
of this function (or another patch to add this to generic, if proved to
be needed in every arch).

Makes sense. But wouldn't inlining have the same code output?

Sure, looks better that way. I will change that for v7.

My mistake. Will be corrected in v7.

There are places where touching irq is decided by a boolean, like in
patch 8: http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/1234130/

If I were to change this, I would have to place ifs and decide to call
either normal or *_noirq() versions in every function.

What you suggest?

It's not label name changing. There are two possible bails in
hash_page_mm(): one for before __begin_lockless_pagetable_walk() and
other for after it. The new one also runs __end_lockless_pgtbl_walk()
before running what the previous did:

As for the label name lengh, I see no problem changing it to something
like bail_ptw.

Nope. I have added while reading code and it just went trough my pre-

Oh, this commit missed the reasoning for flags name change.

For local_irq_{save,restore} a parameter named flags makes sense, for
the reader, as it could only be flags regarding irq.

I thougt passing flags to {begin,end}_lockless_pgtbl_walk would lose
it's meaning, given that it would only mean "flags for these functions"

So, changing it to irq_mask would make the reader more aware of what it
does mean.

For other commits, I added:

"Variable that saves the irq mask was renamed from flags to irq_mask so
it doesn't lose meaning now it's not directly passed to local_irq_*
functions." 

I can add it to this commit message.

Thanks for the feedback,

Leonardo Bras

There are places in code, like patch 8, where it explicitly avoids
doing irq_save/restore by using a function parameter (realmode).
http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/1234130/

I am not sure why it's that way, but I decided to keep it as is. 
It was introduced by Aneesh Kumar in 2015
(691e95fd7396905a38d98919e9c150dbc3ea21a3).

Sure, can be done.  It would save some function calls.
For that I will define the per-cpu variable in .c and declare it in .h
All new function can be moved to .h, while changing adding the inline
modifier.

Nope, just something I 'fixed' while reading, and gone past my pre-send

Nope, just another something I 'fixed' while reading, and gone past my

Found other unbalanced begin/end in kvmppc_do_h_enter(). I will change
that too.

What's the fix going to look like, approximately?

Just tried doing that, but percpu stuff relies in paca definitions, and
this ends up creating some cyclic dependencies.

I could try to change that, but the amount of change is big and
probably should be dealt in another patchset.

I am not sure what is the best approach yet. 

1. On irq_mask == 0, always enable irq on end_lockless_pgtbl_walk().
   Not sure how bat would that affect other archs.

2. Add another function like end_lockless_pgtbl_walk_irqen() that
always enables IRQ.

3. Add another parameter in end_lockless_pgtbl_walk(), so that caller
can choose ii IRQ must be enabled.

Also, not sure if internal_get_user_pages_fast() can possibly be called
with IRQ disabled, and then return with it enabled. Maybe just
saving/restoring should be fine.

Other suggestions are welcome.
