Subject[PATCH v4 0/6] sched: use runnable load based balance
Date
This patchset bases on tip/sched/core.

The patchset remove the burst wakeup detection which had worked fine on 3.8
kernel, since the aim7 is very imbalance. But rwsem write lock stealing
enabled in 3.9 kernel. aim7 imbalance disappeared. So the burst wakeup
care doesn't needed.

It was tested on Intel core2, NHM, SNB, IVB, 2 and 4 sockets machines with
benchmark kbuild, aim7, dbench, tbench, hackbench, fileio-cfq(sysbench)

On SNB EP 4 sockets machine, the hackbench increased about 50%, and result
become stable. on other machines, hackbench increased about 2~5%.
no clear performance change on other benchmarks.

and Michael Wang had tested the pgbench on his box:

Done, here the results of pgbench without the last patch on my box:

The patches are based in 3.9-rc2 and have been tested on an ARM vexpress TC2
big.LITTLE testchip containing five cpus: 2xCortex-A15 + 3xCortex-A7.
Additional testing and refinements might be needed later as more sophisticated
platforms become available.

* The unpatched 3.9-rc2 scheduler gives inconsistent performance as tasks may
randomly be placed on either A7 or A15 cores. The max/min values reflects this
behaviour. A15 and A7 performance are ~16.5 and ~33.5 respectively.

' While Alex Shi's patches appear to solve the performance inconsistency for
sysbench_1t, it is not the true picture for all workloads. This can be seen for
sysbench_2t.

To ensure that the proposed changes does not affect normal SMP systems, the
same benchmarks have been run on a 2xCortex-A15 configuration as well:

Peter,
Would you like to consider pick up the patchset? or give some comments? :)

Best regards
