Subject: [PATCH tip/core/rcu 1/6] rcu/tree: Make rcu_do_batch count how many callbacks were executed
Date: Tue,  5 Jan 2021 17:26:12 -0800
Message-ID: <20210106012617.14122-1-paulmck@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210106012541.GA13972@paulmck-ThinkPad-P72>

From: "Joel Fernandes (Google)" <joel@joelfernandes.org>

The rcu_do_batch() function extracts the ready-to-invoke callbacks
from the rcu_segcblist located in the ->cblist field of the current
CPU's rcu_data structure.  These callbacks are first moved to a local
(unsegmented) rcu_cblist.  The rcu_do_batch() function then uses this
rcu_cblist's ->len field to count how many CBs it has invoked, but it
does so by counting that field down from zero.  Finally, this function
negates the value in this ->len field (resulting in a positive number)
and subtracts the result from the ->len field of the current CPU's
->cblist field.

Except that it is sometimes necessary for rcu_do_batch() to stop invoking
callbacks mid-stream, despite there being more ready to invoke, for
example, if a high-priority task wakes up.  In this case the remaining
not-yet-invoked callbacks are requeued back onto the CPU's ->cblist,
but remain in the ready-to-invoke segment of that list.  As above, the
negative of the local rcu_cblist's ->len field is still subtracted from
the ->len field of the current CPU's ->cblist field.

The design of counting down from 0 is confusing and error-prone, plus
use of a positive count will make it easier to provide a uniform and
consistent API to deal with the per-segment counts that are added
later in this series.  For example, rcu_segcblist_extract_done_cbs()
can unconditionally populate the resulting unsegmented list's ->len
field during extraction.

This commit therefore explicitly counts how many callbacks were executed
in rcu_do_batch() itself, counting up from zero, and then uses that
to update the per-CPU segcb list's ->len field, without relying on the
downcounting of rcl->len from zero.
