Subject[PATCH v2] mm/hugetlb: avoid looping to the same hugepage if !pages and !vmas
Date
From: Zhigang Lu <tonnylu@tencent.com>

When mmapping an existing hugetlbfs file with MAP_POPULATE, we find
it is very time consuming. For example, mmapping a 128GB file takes
about 50 milliseconds. Sampling with perfevent shows it spends 99%
time in the same_page loop in follow_hugetlb_page().

samples: 205 of event 'cycles', Event count (approx.): 136686374
- 99.04% test_mmap_huget [kernel.kallsyms] [k] follow_hugetlb_page
follow_hugetlb_page
__get_user_pages
__mlock_vma_pages_range
__mm_populate
vm_mmap_pgoff
sys_mmap_pgoff
sys_mmap
system_call_fastpath
__mmap64

follow_hugetlb_page() is called with pages=NULL and vmas=NULL, so for
each hugepage, we run into the same_page loop for pages_per_huge_page()
times, but doing nothing. With this change, it takes less then 1
millisecond to mmap a 128GB file in hugetlbfs.
