[PATCH v3 03/11] bitops: let the compiler optimize {__,}assign_bit()

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


Since commit b03fc1173c0c ("bitops: let optimize out non-atomic bitops
on compile-time constants"), the compilers are able to expand inline
bitmap operations to compile-time initializers when possible.
However, during the round of replacement if-__set-else-__clear with
__assign_bit() as per Andy's advice, bloat-o-meter showed +1024 bytes
difference in object code size for one module (even one function),
where the pattern:

	DECLARE_BITMAP(foo) = { }; // on the stack, zeroed

	if (a)
		__set_bit(const_bit_num, foo);
	if (b)
		__set_bit(another_const_bit_num, foo);

is heavily used, although there should be no difference: the bitmap is
zeroed, so the second half of __assign_bit() should be compiled-out as
a no-op.
I either missed the fact that __assign_bit() has bitmap pointer marked
as `volatile` (as we usually do for bitops) or was hoping that the
compilers would at least try to look past the `volatile` for
__always_inline functions. Anyhow, due to that attribute, the compilers
were always compiling the whole expression and no mentioned compile-time
optimizations were working.

Convert __assign_bit() to a macro since it's a very simple if-else and
all of the checks are performed inside __set_bit() and __clear_bit(),
thus that wrapper has to be as transparent as possible. After that
change, despite it showing only -20 bytes change for vmlinux (due to
that it's still relatively unpopular), no drastic code size changes
happen when replacing if-set-else-clear for onstack bitmaps with
__assign_bit(), meaning the compiler now expands them to the actual
operations will all the expected optimizations.

Atomic assign_bit() is less affected due to its nature, but let's
convert it to a macro as well to keep the code consistent and not
leave a place for possible suboptimal codegen. Moreover, with certain
kernel configuration it actually gives some saves (x86):
