Arun KS Jan. 9, 2019, 11:13 a.m. UTC
When freeing pages are done with higher order, time spent on coalescing
pages by buddy allocator can be reduced.  With section size of 256MB, hot
add latency of a single section shows improvement from 50-60 ms to less
than 1 ms, hence improving the hot add latency by 60 times.  Modify
external providers of online callback to align with the change.

Changes since v7:
- Rebased to 5.0-rc1.
- Fixed onlined_pages accounting.
- Added comment for return value of online_page_callback.
- Renamed xen_bring_pgs_online to xen_online_pages.

Changes since v6:
- Rebased to 4.20
- Changelog updated.
- No improvement seen on arm64, hence removed removal of prefetch.

Changes since v5:
- Rebased to 4.20-rc1.
- Changelog updated.

Changes since v4:
- As suggested by Michal Hocko,
- Simplify logic in online_pages_block() by using get_order().
- Seperate out removal of prefetch from __free_pages_core().

Changes since v3:
- Renamed _free_pages_boot_core -> __free_pages_core.
- Removed prefetch from __free_pages_core.
- Removed xen_online_page().

Changes since v2:
- Reuse code from __free_pages_boot_core().

Changes since v1:
- Removed prefetch().

Changes since RFC:
- Rebase.
- As suggested by Michal Hocko remove pages_per_block.
- Modifed external providers of online_page_callback.

As far as the renaming you should try to be consistent. If you aren't
going to rename generic_online_page or hv_online_page I wouldn't bother
with renaming xen_online_page. I would stick with the name
xen_online_page since it is a single high order page that you are
freeing.

I would hold off on adding return values until you actually have code
that uses them. It will make things easier if somebody has to backport
this to a stable branch and avoid adding complexity until it is needed.

Also the patch description doesn't really explain that it is doing this
so it might be better to break it off into a separate patch so you can
call out exactly why you are adding a return value in the patch
description.
