Subject[PATCH v2] printk: avoid prb_first_valid_seq() where possible
Date
If message sizes average larger than expected (more than 32
characters), the data_ring will wrap before the desc_ring. Once the
data_ring wraps, it will start invalidating descriptors. These
invalid descriptors hang around until they are eventually recycled
when the desc_ring wraps. Readers do not care about invalid
descriptors, but they still need to iterate past them. If the
average message size is much larger than 32 characters, then there
will be many invalid descriptors preceding the valid descriptors.

The function prb_first_valid_seq() always begins at the oldest
descriptor and searches for the first valid descriptor. This can
be rather expensive for the above scenario. And, in fact, because
of its heavy usage in /dev/kmsg, there have been reports of long
delays and even RCU stalls.

For code that does not need to search from the oldest record,
replace prb_first_valid_seq() usage with prb_read_valid_*()
functions, which provide a start sequence number to search from.

v2: Abort and report no unread messages if SYSLOG_ACTION_SIZE_UNREAD
fails to read the current or any newer record.
