Subject[PATCH V6 0/2] percpu_ref & block: reduce memory footprint of percpu_ref in fast path
Date
Hi,

The 1st patch removes memory footprint of percpu_ref in fast path
from 7 words to 2 words, since it is often used in fast path and
embedded in user struct.

The 2nd patch moves .q_usage_counter to 1st cacheline of
'request_queue'.

Simple test on null_blk shows ~2% IOPS boost on one 16cores(two threads
per core) machine, dual socket/numa.

V6:
- drop the 1st patch which adds percpu_ref_is_initialized() for MD
only, since Christoph doesn't like it

V5:
- fix memory leak on ref->data, only percpu_ref_exit() of patch 2
is modified.

V4:
- rename percpu_ref_inited as percpu_ref_is_initialized

V3:
- fix kernel oops on MD
- add patch for avoiding to use percpu-refcount internal from md
code
- pass Red Hat CKI test which is done by Veronika Kabatova

V2:
- pass 'gfp' to kzalloc() for fixing block/027 failure reported by
kernel test robot
- protect percpu_ref_is_zero() with destroying percpu-refcount by
spin lock

percpu_ref: reduce memory footprint of percpu_ref in fast path
block: move 'q_usage_counter' into front of 'request_queue'
