Subject[PATCH] avoid unnecessary cache flushes
On several RISC architectures the I-cache doesn't snoop, instead
software is responsible for doing any I-cache flushing necessary to
maintain coherency. On PowerPC for instance, the I-cache doesn't
snoop at all; on SPARC-64 and IA64 the I-cache will snoop DMA activity
but not the D-cache on the same CPU.

So we need to do a D-cache writeback and I-cache invalidate for a page
under certain circumstances, and the current code does that. However,
it does unnecessary flushes because it doesn't keep any state to
indicate whether the flush has already been done for a page. Clearly,
once the flush has been done for a page it doesn't need to be done
again unless the page is modified.

The solution that Dave M. and others came up with is to use the
PG_arch_1 bit in the page struct to indicate whether the page is
"I-cache clean" or not. This can mostly be done in the arch-dependent
code but we need a couple of changes in the generic code as well.

The main extra thing we need is for copy_user_page and clear_user_page
to be able to mark the page as I-cache dirty. To do this these
functions need the struct page * for the destination page. When I
suggested adding the struct page * argument previously, Linus
responded with some comments which I have taken into account.

So here is a proposed patch against 2.4.10-pre2. We get a significant
performance increase on PPC with this patch. In summary, the changes
it makes are:

* copy_user_page and clear_user_page take page * arguments instead of
void *.

* If an architecture needs its own versions of copy/clear_user_page,
it should define __HAVE_ARCH_USER_PAGE in asm/page.h and declare
copy/clear_user_page there.

* There are default versions of copy/clear_user_page in
include/linux/highmem.h which will be used if the architecture
doesn't define __HAVE_ARCH_USER_PAGE.

* Some functions have been renamed:
clear_user_highpage -> clear_user_page
clear_highpage -> clear_mem_page
copy_user_highpage -> copy_user_page
copy_highpage -> copy_mem_page
memclear_highpage -> memclear_page
memclear_highpage_flush -> memclear_page_flush

This was prompted by Linus' comment that the highpage versions
should be renamed to the non-highpage names, since highmem is no
longer a rare special case.

* access_one_page() in kernel/ptrace.c uses flush_icache_range in the
write case rather than flush_icache_page. This is because (a) we
now have flush_icache_page being a no-op on PPC and (b) flushing a
whole page when we typically only modify one word is way overkill.

This patch should be completely benign on those architectures that
don't need to worry about I-cache coherency (e.g. i386).

Any comments from the architecture maintainers? Linus, does this look
OK to apply to your tree?

Paul.
