On MIPS chips commonly found in inexpensive routers, this makes a big
difference in performance.

In general it is not always clear that using whatever hardware crypto
is available is a good idea. Not all such hardware is fast, some CPUs
are, some CPUs have hardware for AES, and even if the hardware is
faster than the CPU, the context switch overheads may exceed the
advantage.

Ideally the patch development or acceptance process would be
testing this, but I think it might be difficult to reach that ideal.

The exception is a hardware RNG; that should always be used unless
it is clearly awful. It cannot do harm, speed is not much of an issue,
and it solves the hardest problem in the random(4) driver, making
sure of correct initialisation before any use.

What about architectures? In particular, what if we just use your
new code for all architectures.  How much would we lose?

These architectures select HAVE_EFFICIENT_UNALIGNED_ACCESS:

s390 arm arm64 powerpc x86 x86_64

So, these will use the original old code.

The architectures that will thus use the new code are:

alpha arc avr32 blackfin c6x cris frv h7300 hexagon ia64 m32r m68k
metag microblaze mips mn10300 nios2 openrisc parisc score sh sparc
tile um unicore32 xtensa

Unfortunately, of these, the only machines I have access to are MIPS.
My SPARC access went cold a few years ago.

If you insist on a data-motivated approach approach, then I fear my
test of 1 out of 26 different architectures is woefully insufficient.
Does anybody else on the list have access to more hardware and is
interested in benchmarking?

If not, is there a reasonable way to decide on this by considering the
added complexity of code? Are we able to reason best and worst cases
of instruction latency vs unalignment stalls for most CPU designs?

What I'm interested in is whether the new code is sufficiently
close in performance to the old code, particularonly on x86.

I'd much rather only have a single set of code for all architectures.
After all, this is meant to be a generic implementation.

Just tested. I get a 6% slowdown on my Skylake. No good. I think it's
probably best to have the two paths in there, and not reduce it to
one.

FWIW I'd rather live with a 6% slowdown than having two different
code paths in the generic code.  Anyone who cares about 6% would
be much better off writing an assembly version of the code.

Hi Herbert,

Please think twice before deciding that the generic C "is allowed to
be slow". It turns out to be used far more often than might be
obvious. For example, crypto is commonly done on the netdev layer --
like the case with mac80211-based drivers. At this layer, the FPU on
x86 isn't always available, depending on the path used. Some
combinations of drivers, packet family, and workload can result in the
generic C being used instead of the vectorized assembly for a massive
percentage of time. So, I think we do have a good motivation for
wanting the generic C to be as fast as possible.

In the particular case of poly1305, these are the only spots where
unaligned accesses take place, and they're rather small, and I think
it's pretty obvious what's happening in the two different cases of
code from a quick glance. This isn't the "two different paths case" in
which there's a significant future-facing maintenance burden.

Jason

In any event no piece of code should be doing 32-bit word reads from
addresses like "x + 3" without, at a very minimum, going through the
kernel unaligned access handlers.

Yet that is what the generic C poly1305 code is doing, all over the
place.

We know explicitly that these offsets will not be 32-bit aligned, so
it is required that we use the helpers, or alternatively do things to
avoid these unaligned accesses such as using temporary storage when
the HAVE_EFFICIENT_UNALIGNED_ACCESS kconfig value is not set.

Excellent point. In otherwords,

    ctx->r[0] = (le32_to_cpuvp(key +  0) >> 0) & 0x3ffffff;
    ctx->r[1] = (le32_to_cpuvp(key +  3) >> 2) & 0x3ffff03;
    ctx->r[2] = (le32_to_cpuvp(key +  6) >> 4) & 0x3ffc0ff;
    ctx->r[3] = (le32_to_cpuvp(key +  9) >> 6) & 0x3f03fff;
    ctx->r[4] = (le32_to_cpuvp(key + 12) >> 8) & 0x00fffff;

should change to:

    ctx->r[0] = (le32_to_cpuvp(key +  0) >> 0) & 0x3ffffff;
    ctx->r[1] = (get_unaligned_le32(key +  3) >> 2) & 0x3ffff03;
    ctx->r[2] = (get_unaligned_le32(key +  6) >> 4) & 0x3ffc0ff;
    ctx->r[3] = (get_unaligned_le32(key +  9) >> 6) & 0x3f03fff;
    ctx->r[4] = (le32_to_cpuvp(key + 12) >> 8) & 0x00fffff;

So the question is: is the clever avoidance of unaligned accesses of
the original patch faster or slower than changing the unaligned
accesses to use the helper function?

I've put a little test harness together for playing with this:

    $ git clone git://git.zx2c4.com/polybench
    $ cd polybench
    $ make run

To test with one method, do as normal. To test with the other, remove
"#define USE_FIRST_METHOD" from the source code.

@René: do you think you could retest on your MIPS32r2 hardware and
report back which is faster?

And if anybody else has other hardware and would like to try, this
could be nice.

Regards,
Jason

I agree, and the current code is wrong; but do note that this proposal is
correct for poly1305_setrkey() but not for poly1305_setskey() and
poly1305_blocks().  In the latter two cases, 4-byte alignment of the source
buffer is *not* guaranteed.  Although crypto_poly1305_update() will be called
with a 4-byte aligned buffer due to the alignmask set on poly1305_alg, the
algorithm operates on 16-byte blocks and therefore has to buffer partial blocks.
If some number of bytes that is not 0 mod 4 is buffered, then the buffer will
fall out of alignment on the next update call.  Hence, get_unaligned_le32() is
actually needed on all the loads, since the buffer will, in general, be of
unknown alignment.

Note: some other shash algorithms have this problem too and do not handle it
correctly.  It seems to be a common mistake.

Hmm... The general data flow that strikes me as most pertinent is
something like:

struct sk_buff *skb = get_it_from_somewhere();
skb = skb_share_check(skb, GFP_ATOMIC);
num_frags = skb_cow_data(skb, ..., ...);
struct scatterlist sg[num_frags];
sg_init_table(sg, num_frags);
skb_to_sgvec(skb, sg, ..., ...);
blkcipher_walk_init(&walk, sg, sg, len);
blkcipher_walk_virt_block(&desc, &walk, BLOCK_SIZE);
while (walk.nbytes >= BLOCK_SIZE) {
    size_t chunk_len = rounddown(walk.nbytes, BLOCK_SIZE);
    poly1305_update(&poly1305_state, walk.src.virt.addr, chunk_len);
    blkcipher_walk_done(&desc, &walk, walk.nbytes % BLOCK_SIZE);
}
if (walk.nbytes) {
    poly1305_update(&poly1305_state, walk.src.virt.addr, walk.nbytes);
    blkcipher_walk_done(&desc, &walk, 0);
}

Is your suggestion that that in the final if block, walk.src.virt.addr
might be unaligned? Like in the case of the last fragment being 67
bytes long?

If so, what a hassle. I hope the performance overhead isn't too
awful... I'll resubmit taking into account your suggestions.

By the way -- offlist benchmarks sent to me concluded that using the
unaligned load helpers like David suggested is just as fast as that
handrolled bit magic in the v1.

Regards,
Jason

In fact, I'm not so sure this happens here. In the while loop, each
new walk.src.virt.addr will be aligned to BLOCK_SIZE or be aligned by
virtue of being at the start of a new page. In the subsequent if
block, walk.src.virt.addr will either be
some_aligned_address+BLOCK_SIZE, which will be aligned, or it will be
a start of a new page, which will be aligned.

So what did you have in mind exactly?

I don't think anybody is running code like:

for (size_t i = 0; i < len; i += 17)
    poly1305_update(&poly, &buffer[i], 17);

(And if so, those consumers should be fixed.)

I was not referring to any users in particular, only what users could do.  As an
example, if you did crypto_shash_update() with 32, 15, then 17 bytes, and the
underlying algorithm is poly1305-generic, the last block would end up
misaligned.  This doesn't appear possible with your pseudocode because it only
passes in multiples of the block size until the very end.  However I don't see
it claimed anywhere that shash API users have to do that.

Actually it appears that crypto/poly1305_generic.c already buffers
incoming blocks to a buffer that definitely looks aligned, to prevent
this condition!

I'll submit a v2 with only the inner unaligned operations changed.

By using the unaligned access helpers, we drastically improve
performance on small MIPS routers that have to go through the exception
fix-up handler for these unaligned accesses.

No it does *not* buffer all incoming blocks, which is why the source pointer can
fall out of alignment.  Yes, I actually tested this.  In fact this situation is
even hit, in both possible places, in the self-tests.

By using the unaligned access helpers, we drastically improve
performance on small MIPS routers that have to go through the exception
fix-up handler for these unaligned accesses.

Nit: the subject line is a little unclear about what was changed.
"make generic C faster on chips with slow unaligned access" would be better.

I couldn't measure any slowdown here, so:

Not sure what the exact alignment rules for key/iv are, but maybe we
want to replace the same function in chacha20_generic.c as well?

chacha20-generic provides a blkcipher API and sets an alignmask of sizeof(u32)
- 1.  This applies to the key buffer for ->setkey() and to the mapped addresses
for the input/output buffers and IV during the blkcipher walk.  So it does not
appear to have the problems that poly1305 has.  

I do however see one small problem which is that
'u8 stream[CHACHA20_BLOCK_SIZE];' is, strictly speaking, not guaranteed to be
aligned to u32.
