Without this option the NIC on ThunderX1 is not coming up
so enable it to get a working network interface.

ThunderX1 dual socket has 96 CPUs and ThunderX2 has 224 CPUs.
Therefore raise the default number of CPUs from 64 to 256
by adding an arm64 specific option to override the generic default.

Are you sure about those numbers? From my counting, I would have expected
twice that number in both cases: 48 cores, 2 chips and 2x SMT for ThunderX
vs 52 Cores, 2 chips and 4x SMT for ThunderX2.

Regardless of what the correct numbers for your chips are, I'd like
to hear some other opinions on how high we should raise that default
limit, both in arch/arm64/Kconfig and in the defconfig file.

As I remember it, there is a noticeable cost for taking the limit beyond
BITS_PER_LONG, both in terms of memory consumption and also
runtime performance (copying and comparing CPU masks).

I'm sure someone will keep coming up with even larger configurations
in the future, so we should try to decide how far we can take the
defaults for the moment without impacting users of the smallest
systems. Alternatively, you could add some measurements that
show how much memory and CPU time is used up on a typical
configuration for a small system (4 cores, no SMT, 512 MB RAM).
If that's low enough, we could just do it anyway.

That's what I have on those machines. I counted SMT as normal CPUs as it
doesn't make a difference for the config. I've not seen SMT on ThunderX.

The ThunderX2 number of 224 is already with 4x SMT (and 2 chips) but
there may be other versions planned that I'm not aware of.

OK, that explains the default. My unverified assumption is that
increasing the CPU masks wont be a noticable performance hit.

Also, I don't think that anyone who wants performance will use
defconfig. All server distributions would bump up the NR_CPUS anyway
and really small systems will probably need to tune the config
anyway.

For me defconfig should produce a usable system, not with every last
driver configured but with all the basics like CPUs, networking, etc.
fully present.

OK, I'll take a look.

I've never used on, the numbers I have are probably the highest
announced core counts that are produced, but it's possible that
those with fewer cores that you have (24 and 26, respectively)
are much more affordable and/or common.

The cpumask macros are rather subtle and are written to be
as efficient as possible on configurations with 1, BITS_PER_LONG
as well as large numbers of CPUs. There is also the
CONFIG_CPUMASK_OFFSTACK option that trades (stack) memory
consumption for CPU cycles and is usually used on configurations
with more than 512 CPUs.

Agreed. If we can sacrifice a little bit of kernel performance in
exchange for running on a wider range of machines, we should do
that, but if either the CPU or memory cost is excessive for small
machines, then I think it's better to sacrifice access to some of the
CPUs on the larger systems.

I would expect that the performance impact for running without
SMP on ThunderX2 (52 CPUs instead of 224) is significant but
also something we can live with as a non-optimized configuration.
On my 32-thread x86 build box, disabling SMT costs under 20%,
for larger configurations I would expect a smaller impact for
similar workloads (because of Amdahl's law), but your SMT
implementation may be better than AMD's.

I've made some measurements on a 4 core board (Cavium 81xx) with
NR_CPUS set to 64 or 256:

- vmlinux grows by 0.04 % with 256 CPUs

- Kernel compile time was a bit faster with 256 CPUS (which does
  not make sense, but at least is seems to not suffer from the change).
  Is there a benchmark that will be better suited? Maybe even a
  microbenchmark that will suffer from the longer cpumasks?

- Available memory decreased by 0.13% (restricted memory to 512 MB),
  BSS increased 5.3 %

Cheers,
Jan

Ok. Is this both with CONFIG_CPUMASK_OFFSTACK=n?

> - Kernel compile time was a bit faster with 256 CPUS (which does

Do you mean compiling the same kernel configuration while running
on a system with less than 64 CPUs on either a CONFIG_NR_CPUS=64
or CONFIG_NR_PCUS=256 kernel, or do you mean the time to compile
a kernel with either CONFIG_NR_CPUS=64 or CONFIG_NR_CPUS=256,
while running on the same host?

I assume the former, which is a very interesting result, possibly
pointing to us doing something wrong in the NR_CPUS=64 case
that could be optimized.

If you ran with CONFIG_CPUMASK_OFFSTACK, that may have made
a significant difference, but I would expect it to be faster without it.

To get more insight to what is happening, you could rerun the same
test with 'perf record' and then compare the profiles. How significant
is the runtime difference compared to the jitter you get between normal
runs on the same configuration?

Good question.

0.13% of a few hundred megabytes is still several hundred kb, right? I'd
like to hear some other opinions on that, but it seems to be in the
range of enabling many additional device drivers, which is something
we don't do lightly.

The former, compiling everything on a 4-core system using two different
kernels to compile the same thing.

I did retry once but the odd case that CONFIG_NR_CPUS=256 was faster
was consistent. The difference was very small though so it may be
completely due to jitter.

Agreed, available memory was reduced by 128 KB.
