[PATCH 0/6] sched/deadline: cpuset: Rework DEADLINE bandwidth restoration

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


Qais reported [1] that iterating over all tasks when rebuilding root
domains for finding out which ones are DEADLINE and need their bandwidth
correctly restored on such root domains can be a costly operation (10+
ms delays on suspend-resume). He proposed we skip rebuilding root
domains for certain operations, but that approach seemed arch specific
and possibly prone to errors, as paths that ultimately trigger a rebuild
might be quite convoluted (thanks Qais for spending time on this!).

To fix the problem

 01/06 - Rename functions deadline with DEADLINE accounting (cleanup
         suggested by Qais) - no functional change
 02/06 - Bring back cpuset_mutex (so that we have write access to cpusets
         from scheduler operations - and we also fix some problems
         associated to percpu_cpuset_rwsem)
 03/06 - Keep track of the number of DEADLINE tasks belonging to each cpuset
 04/06 - Create DL BW alloc, free & check overflow interface for bulk
         bandwidth allocation/removal - no functional change 
 05/06 - Fix bandwidth allocation handling for cgroup operation
         involving multiple tasks
 06/06 - Use this information to only perform the costly iteration if
         DEADLINE tasks are actually present in the cpuset for which a
         corresponding root domain is being rebuilt

With respect to the RFC posting [2]

 1 - rename DEADLINE bandwidth accounting functions - Qais
 2 - call inc/dec_dl_tasks_cs from switched_{to,from}_dl - Qais
 3 - fix DEADLINE bandwidth allocation with multiple tasks - Waiman,
     contributed by Dietmar
