Subject[PATCH v4 bpf-next 0/6] bpf: enable task local storage for tracing programs
Date
This set enables task local storage for non-BPF_LSM programs.

It is common for tracing BPF program to access per-task data. Currently,
these data are stored in hash tables with pid as the key. In
bcc/libbpftools [1], 9 out of 23 tools use such hash tables. However,
hash table is not ideal for many use case. Task local storage provides
better usability and performance for BPF programs. Please refer to 4/4 for
some performance comparison of task local storage vs. hash table.

Changes v3 => v4:
1. Prevent deadlock from recursive calls of bpf_task_storage_[get|delete].
(2/6 checks potential deadlock and fails over, 4/6 adds a selftest).

Changes v2 => v3:
1. Make the selftest more robust. (Andrii)
2. Small changes with runqslower. (Andrii)
3. Shortern CC list to make it easy for vger.

Changes v1 => v2:
1. Do not allocate task local storage when the task is being freed.
2. Revise the selftest and added a new test for a task being freed.
3. Minor changes in runqslower.

bpf: enable task local storage for tracing programs
bpf: prevent deadlock from recursive bpf_task_storage_[get|delete]
selftests/bpf: add non-BPF_LSM test for task local storage
selftests/bpf: test deadlock from recursive
bpf_task_storage_[get|delete]
bpf: runqslower: prefer using local vmlimux to generate vmlinux.h
bpf: runqslower: use task local storage
