Subject[PATCH net-next v3 2/3] ptr_ring: move r->queue[] clearing after r->consumer_head updating
Date
Currently r->queue[] clearing is done before r->consumer_head
updating, which makes the __ptr_ring_empty() returning false
positive result(the ring is non-empty, but __ptr_ring_empty()
suggest that it is empty) if the checking is done after the
r->queue clearing and before the consumer_head moving forward.

Move the r->queue[] clearing after consumer_head moving forward
to avoid the above case.

As a side effect of above change, a consumer_head checking is
avoided for the likely case, and it has noticeable performance
improvement when it is tested using the ptr_ring_test selftest
added in the previous patch.

Tested using the "perf stat -r 1000 ./ptr_ring_test -s 1000 -m 1
-N 100000000", comparing the elapsed time:

arch unpatched patched improvement

V3: adjust the title and comment log according to disscusion in
V2, and update performance data using "perf stat -r".
V2: Add performance data.
