Subject[PATCH v2 0/4] kthread: NUMA aware kthread_create_on_cpu()
From
Date
Note : compiled and tested on x86_32 and x86_64 only, but these patches
take care of other arches as well.

Thanks for your feedback Andi !


[PATCH v2 0/4] kthread: NUMA aware kthread_create_on_cpu()

All kthreads being created from a single helper task, they all use
memory from a single node for their kernel stack and task struct.

This patch suite creates kthread_create_on_cpu(), adding a 'cpu'
parameter to parameters already used by kthread_create().

This parameter serves in allocating memory for the new kthread on its
memory node if available.

Users of this new function are : ksoftirqd, kworker, migration,
pktgend...


Patch 1/4 mm: NUMA aware alloc_task_struct_node()

alloc_task_struct(void) becomes alloc_task_struct_node(int node)

Patch 2/4 mm: NUMA aware alloc_thread_info_node()

alloc_thread_info(struct task_struct *tsk) becomes
alloc_thread_info_node(struct task_struct *tsk, int node)

Patch 3/4 kthread: NUMA aware kthread_create_on_cpu()

Patch 4/4 kthread: use kthread_create_on_cpu()

ksoftirqd, kworker, migration, and pktgend kthreads can be created with
NUMA aware kthread_create_on_cpu()
