[PATCH v2 0/9] memcg: make rstat flushing irq and sleep

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Patches 1 and 2 are cleanups requested during reviews of prior versions
of this series.

Patch 3 makes sure we never try to flush from within an irq context, and
patch 4 adds a WARN_ON_ONCE() to make sure we catch any violations.

Patches 5 to 8 introduce separate variants of mem_cgroup_flush_stats()
for atomic and non-atomic flushing, and make sure we only flush the
stats atomically when necessary.

Patch 9 is a slightly tangential optimization that limits the work done
by rstat flushing in some scenarios.

v1 -> v2:
- Added more context in patch 4's commit log.
- Added atomic_read() before atomic_xchg() in patch 5 to avoid
  needlessly locking the cache line (Shakeel).
- Refactored patch 6: added a common helper, do_flush_stats(), for
  mem_cgroup_flush_stats{_atomic}() (Johannes).
- Renamed mem_cgroup_flush_stats_ratelimited() to
  mem_cgroup_flush_stats_atomic_ratelimited() in patch 6. It is restored
  in patch 7, but this maintains consistency (Johannes).
- Added line break to keep the lock section visually separated in patch
  7 (Johannes).

RFC -> v1:
- Dropped patch 1 that attempted to make the global rstat lock a non-irq
  lock, will follow up on that separetly (Shakeel).
- Dropped stats_flush_lock entirely, replaced by an atomic (Johannes).
- Renamed cgroup_rstat_flush_irqsafe() to cgroup_rstat_flush_atomic()
  instead of removing it (Johannes).
- Added a patch to rename mem_cgroup_flush_stats_delayed() to
  mem_cgroup_flush_stats_ratelimited() (Johannes).
- Separate APIs for flushing memcg stats in atomic and non-atomic
  contexts instead of a boolean argument (Johannes).
- Added patches 3 & 4 to make sure we never flush from irq context
  (Shakeel & Johannes).

Yosry Ahmed (9):
  cgroup: rename cgroup_rstat_flush_"irqsafe" to "atomic"
  memcg: rename mem_cgroup_flush_stats_"delayed" to "ratelimited"
  memcg: do not flush stats in irq context
  cgroup: rstat: add WARN_ON_ONCE() if flushing outside task context
  memcg: replace stats_flush_lock with an atomic
  memcg: sleep during flushing stats in safe contexts
  workingset: memcg: sleep when flushing stats in workingset_refault()
  vmscan: memcg: sleep when flushing stats during reclaim
  memcg: do not modify rstat tree for zero updates
