Subject[RFC PATCH v3 0/7] Speed booting by sorting ORC unwind tables at build time
Date
Hi,

I refactored the sortextable code and add ORC unwind tables sort
support, for kernel boot speedup by sorting kernel tables at build time
as much as possible.

Followed Peter's suggestion, I put ORC tables sort into a separated
thread makes these tables sort concurrently. That helps to avoid
kernel's link time as possible.

What I did:
[1-4] : refacorting code sortextable.{ch}, for more readable and
extendable, prepare for further rework;
[5] : rename the sortextable to sorttable, and related Kconfig, for
commonly extend.
[6-7] : Add ORC unwind tables sorting, and remove the runtime sort.

Further works:
Put more kernel tables be sorted at build time:
- __jump_table:
I found jump table sort in jump_label_init() does not cost more boot
time, seems not more benefit to sort it at build time. Maybe can
consider it in future for more boot-time sensitive case.
- .static_call_sites:
This tables not merged yet, needs to check the runtime sort cost in
future.

Thanks!

Changes from RFC v3:
- Discard new added sortorctable tool and related Kconfig changes.
- Refactored sortextable, makes it more readable and extendable.
- Rename 'sortextable' to 'sorttable', for more kernel tables extend.
- Add ORC unwind tables sort into sorttable.
- Remove the runtime ORC tables sort.

Changes from RFC v2:
- Removed new added Kconfig and runtime sort code, advised by Josh Poimboeuf.
- Some minor refactoring.

v1:
- Added a new sortorctable tool to sort ORC unwind tables at build time,
same as sortextable.
- Add a new Kconfigure to control if ORC unwind tables sort at build
time.
