Subject: [PATCH v3 00/21] x86: Support Intel Advanced Matrix Extensions
Date: Wed, 23 Dec 2020 07:56:56 -0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20201223155717.19556-1-chang.seok.bae@intel.com> (raw)

Intel Advanced Matrix Extensions (AMX)[1][2] will be shipping on servers
soon.  AMX consists of configurable TMM "TILE" registers plus new
accelerator instructions that operate on them.  TMUL (Tile matrix MULtiply)
is the first accelerator instruction set to use the new registers, and we
anticipate additional instructions in the future.

Neither AMX state nor TMUL instructions depend on AVX.  However, AMX and
AVX do share common challenges.  The TMM registers are 8KB today, and
architecturally as large as 64KB, which merits updates to hardware and
software state management.

Further, both technologies run faster when they are not simultaneously
running on SMT siblings, and both technologies use of power and bandwidth
impact the power and performance available to neighboring cores.  (This
impact has measurably improved in recent hardware.)

If the existing kernel approach for managing XSAVE state was employed to
handle AMX, 8KB space would be added to every task, but possibly rarely
used.  So Linux support is optimized by using a new XSAVE feature: eXtended
Feature Disabling (XFD).  The kernel arms XFD to provide a #NM exception
upon a tasks' first access to TILE state. The kernel exception handler
installs the appropriate XSAVE context switch buffer, and the task behaves
as if the kernel had done that for all tasks.  Using XFD, AMX space is
allocated only when needed, eliminating the memory waste for unused state
components.

This series requires the new minimum sigaltstack support [3] and is based
on the mainline. The series is composed of three parts:
* Patch 01-14: Foundation to support dynamic user state management
* Patch 15-19: AMX enablement, including unit tests
* Patch 20-21: Signal handling optimization and new boot-parameters

Thanks to Len Brown and Dave Hansen for help with the cover letter.

Changes from v2 [5]:
* Removed the patch for the tile data inheritance. Also, updated the
  selftest patch. (Andy Lutomirski)
* Changed the kernel tainted when any unknown state is enabled. (Andy
  Lutomirski)
* Changed to use the XFD feature only when the compacted format in use.
* Improved the test code.
* Simplified the cmdline handling.
* Removed 'task->fpu' in changelogs. (Boris Petkov)
* Updated the variable name / comments / changelogs for clarification.

Changes from v1 [4]:
* Added vmalloc() error tracing (Dave Hansen, PeterZ, and Andy Lutomirski)
* Inlined the #NM handling code (Andy Lutomirski)
* Made signal handling optimization revertible
* Revised the new parameter handling code (Andy Lutomirski and Dave Hansen)
* Rebased on the upstream kernel
