Subject: [PATCH v5 3/4] mm: Create non-atomic version of SetPageReserved for init use
Date: Tue, 25 Sep 2018 13:20:47 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20180925202018.3576.11607.stgit@localhost.localdomain> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20180925200551.3576.18755.stgit@localhost.localdomain>

It doesn't make much sense to use the atomic SetPageReserved at init time
when we are using memset to clear the memory and manipulating the page
flags via simple "&=" and "|=" operations in __init_single_page.

This patch adds a non-atomic version __SetPageReserved that can be used
during page init and shows about a 10% improvement in initialization times
on the systems I have available for testing. On those systems I saw
initialization times drop from around 35 seconds to around 32 seconds to
initialize a 3TB block of persistent memory. I believe the main advantage
of this is that it allows for more compiler optimization as the __set_bit
operation can be reordered whereas the atomic version cannot.

I tried adding a bit of documentation based on commit <f1dd2cd13c4> ("mm,
memory_hotplug: do not associate hotadded memory to zones until online").

Ideally the reserved flag should be set earlier since there is a brief
window where the page is initialization via __init_single_page and we have
not set the PG_Reserved flag. I'm leaving that for a future patch set as
that will require a more significant refactor.
