Subject: [PATCH 1/9] qspinlock: A simple generic 4-byte queue spinlock
Date: Mon, 16 Mar 2015 14:16:14 +0100	[thread overview]

[-- Attachment #1: waiman_long-qspinlock-a_simple_generic_4-byte_queue_spinlock.patch --]
[-- Type: text/plain, Size: 16537 bytes --]

From: Waiman Long <Waiman.Long@hp.com>

This patch introduces a new generic queue spinlock implementation that
can serve as an alternative to the default ticket spinlock. Compared
with the ticket spinlock, this queue spinlock should be almost as fair
as the ticket spinlock. It has about the same speed in single-thread
and it can be much faster in high contention situations especially when
the spinlock is embedded within the data structure to be protected.

Only in light to moderate contention where the average queue depth
is around 1-3 will this queue spinlock be potentially a bit slower
due to the higher slowpath overhead.

This queue spinlock is especially suit to NUMA machines with a large
number of cores as the chance of spinlock contention is much higher
in those machines. The cost of contention is also higher because of
slower inter-node memory traffic.

Due to the fact that spinlocks are acquired with preemption disabled,
the process will not be migrated to another CPU while it is trying
to get a spinlock. Ignoring interrupt handling, a CPU can only be
contending in one spinlock at any one time. Counting soft IRQ, hard
IRQ and NMI, a CPU can only have a maximum of 4 concurrent lock waiting
activities.  By allocating a set of per-cpu queue nodes and used them
to form a waiting queue, we can encode the queue node address into a
much smaller 24-bit size (including CPU number and queue node index)
leaving one byte for the lock.

Please note that the queue node is only needed when waiting for the
lock. Once the lock is acquired, the queue node can be released to
be used later.

+ * The basic principle of a queue-based spinlock can best be understood
+ * by studying a classic queue-based spinlock implementation called the
+ * MCS lock. The paper below provides a good description for this kind
+ * of lock.
+ *
+ * http://www.cise.ufl.edu/tr/DOC/REP-1992-71.pdf
+ *
+ * This queue spinlock implementation is based on the MCS lock, however to make
+ * it fit the 4 bytes we assume spinlock_t to be, and preserve its existing
+ * API, we must modify it somehow.
+ *
+ * In particular; where the traditional MCS lock consists of a tail pointer
+ * (8 bytes) and needs the next pointer (another 8 bytes) of its own node to
+ * unlock the next pending (next->locked), we compress both these: {tail,
+ * next->locked} into a single u32 value.
+ *
+ * Since a spinlock disables recursion of its own context and there is a limit
+ * to the contexts that can nest; namely: task, softirq, hardirq, nmi. As there
+ * are at most 4 nesting levels, it can be encoded by a 2-bit number. Now
+ * we can encode the tail by combining the 2-bit nesting level with the cpu
+ * number. With one byte for the lock value and 3 bytes for the tail, only a
+ * 32-bit word is now needed. Even though we only need 1 bit for the lock,
+ * we extend it to a full byte to achieve better performance for architectures
+ * that support atomic byte write.
+ *
+ * We also change the first spinner to spin on the lock bit instead of its
+ * node; whereby avoiding the need to carry a node from lock to unlock, and
+ * preserving existing lock API. This also makes the unlock code simpler and
+ * faster.
