Subject[RFC PATCH v4 00/19] Core scheduling v4
Date
Fourth iteration of the Core-Scheduling feature.

This version was aiming mostly at addressing the vruntime comparison
issues with v3. The main issue seen in v3 was the starvation of
interactive tasks when competing with cpu intensive tasks. This issue
is mitigated to a large extent.

We have tested and verified that incompatible processes are not
selected during schedule. In terms of performance, the impact
depends on the workload:
- on CPU intensive applications that use all the logical CPUs with
SMT enabled, enabling core scheduling performs better than nosmt.
- on mixed workloads with considerable io compared to cpu usage,
nosmt seems to perform better than core scheduling.

v4 is rebased on top of 5.3.5(dc073f193b70):
https://github.com/digitalocean/linux-coresched/tree/coresched/v4-v5.3.5

Changes in v4
-------------
- Implement a core wide min_vruntime for vruntime comparison of tasks
across cpus in a core.
- Fixes a typo bug in setting the forced_idle cpu.

Changes in v3
-------------
- Fixes the issue of sibling picking up an incompatible task
- Aaron Lu
- Vineeth Pillai
- Julien Desfossez
- Fixes the issue of starving threads due to forced idle
- Peter Zijlstra
- Fixes the refcounting issue when deleting a cgroup with tag
- Julien Desfossez
- Fixes a crash during cpu offline/online with coresched enabled
- Vineeth Pillai
- Fixes a comparison logic issue in sched_core_find
- Aaron Lu

Changes in v2
-------------
- Fixes for couple of NULL pointer dereference crashes
- Subhra Mazumdar
- Tim Chen
- Improves priority comparison logic for process in different cpus
- Peter Zijlstra
- Aaron Lu
- Fixes a hard lockup in rq locking
- Vineeth Pillai
- Julien Desfossez
- Fixes a performance issue seen on IO heavy workloads
- Vineeth Pillai
- Julien Desfossez
- Fix for 32bit build
- Aubrey Li

TODO
----
- Decide on the API for exposing the feature to userland
- Investigate the source of the overhead even when no tasks are tagged:
https://lkml.org/lkml/2019/10/29/242
- Investigate the performance scaling issue when we have a high number of
tagged threads: https://lkml.org/lkml/2019/10/29/248
- Try to optimize the performance for IO-demanding applications:
