Subject: [PATCH v4 0/7] dma-buf: Performance improvements for system heap & a system-uncached implementation
Date: Sat, 17 Oct 2020 01:32:48 +0000
Message-ID: <20201017013255.43568-1-john.stultz@linaro.org> (raw)

Hey All,
  So this is another revision of my patch series to performance
optimizations to the dma-buf system heap.

This series reworks the system heap to use sgtables, and then
consolidates the pagelist method from the heap-helpers into the
CMA heap. After which the heap-helpers logic is removed (as it
is unused). I'd still like to find a better way to avoid some of
the logic duplication in implementing the entire dma_buf_ops
handlers per heap. But unfortunately that code is tied somewhat
to how the buffer's memory is tracked.

After this, the series introduces an optimization that
Ørjan Eide implemented for ION that avoids calling sync on
attachments that don't have a mapping.

Next, an optimization to use larger order pages for the system
heap. This change brings us closer to the current performance
of the ION allocation code (though there still is a gap due
to ION using a mix of deferred-freeing and page pools, I'll be
looking at integrating those eventually).

Finally, a reworked version of my uncached system heap
implementation I was submitting a few weeks back. Since it
duplicated a lot of the now reworked system heap code, I
realized it would be much simpler to add the functionality to
the system_heap implementaiton itself.

While not improving the core allocation performance, the
uncached heap allocations do result in *much* improved
performance on HiKey960 as it avoids a lot of flushing and
invalidating buffers that the cpu doesn't touch often.

Feedback on these would be great!

thanks
-john

* Spelling fixes suggested by BrianS
* Make sys_uncached_heap static, as

* Fix wrong return value, caught by smatch

    Reported-by: Dan Carpenter <dan.carpenter@oracle.com>
* Ensure we call flush/invalidate_kernel_vmap_range() in the
  uncached cases to try to address feedback about VIVT caches
  from Christoph
* Reorder a few lines as suggested by BrianS
* Avoid holding the initial mapping for the lifetime of the buffer
  as suggested by BrianS
* Fix a unlikely race between allocate and updating the dma_mask
  that BrianS noticed.
