SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/2] rcu batch tuning
Andrew,

The earlier version of this patch was against 2.6.16-rc3 and didn't
apply cleanly to 2.6.16-rc3-mm1. This version applies cleanly
to 2.6.16-rc3-mm1.

This patch adds new tunables for RCU queue and finished batches.
There are two types of controls - number of completed RCU updates
invoked in a batch (blimit) and monitoring for high rate of
incoming RCUs on a cpu (qhimark, qlowmark). By default,
the per-cpu batch limit is set to a small value. If
the input RCU rate exceeds the high watermark, we do two things -
force quiescent state on all cpus and set the batch limit
of the CPU to INTMAX. Setting batch limit to INTMAX forces all
finished RCUs to be processed in one shot. If we have more than
INTMAX RCUs queued up, then we have bigger problems anyway.
Once the incoming queued RCUs fall below the low watermark, the batch limit
is set to the default.
