Subject[PATCH rdma-next v2 0/4] Improve ODP by using HMM API
Date
From: Leon Romanovsky <leonro@nvidia.com>

Changelog:
v2:
* Patch #1 – Drop redundant mask.
* Patch #4 – Use address and length directly from umem_odp.
v1: https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20200917112152.1075974-1-leon@kernel.org
* Cleaned code.
* Support a potential valid dma_address of NULL by flags detection,
note was added to clarify things as was asked.
* Fix 80 character lines in few places.
v0: https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20200914113949.346562-1-leon@kernel.org

Based on:

From Yishai:

This series improves ODP performance by moving to use the HMM API as of below.

The get_user_pages_remote() functionality was replaced by HMM:
- No need anymore to allocate and free memory to hold its output per call.
- No need anymore to use the put_page() to unpin the pages.
- The logic to detect contiguous pages is done based on the returned order
from HMM, no need to run per page, and evaluate.

Moving to use the HMM enables to reduce page faults in the system by using the
snapshot mode. This mode allows existing pages in the CPU to become presented
to the device without faulting.

This non-faulting mode may be used explicitly by an application with some new
option of advice MR (i.e. PREFETCH_NO_FAULT) and is used upon ODP MR
registration internally as part of initiating the device page table.

To achieve the above, internal changes in the ODP data structures were done
and some flows were cleaned-up/adapted accordingly.

Thanks
