Subject: [PATCH v2 0/7] Use static_call for kvm_pmu_ops
Date: Mon,  8 Nov 2021 19:10:25 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20211108111032.24457-1-likexu@tencent.com> (raw)

Hi,

This is a successor to a previous patch set from Jason Baron. Let's convert
kvm_pmu_ops to use static_call. Shows good performance gains for
a typical perf use case [2] in the guest (results in patch 3/3).

V1 -> V2 Changelog:
- Export kvm_pmu_is_valid_msr() for nVMX [Sean]
- Land memcpy() above kvm_ops_static_call_update() [Sean]
- Move the pmu_ops to kvm_x86_init_ops and tagged as __initdata. [Sean]
- Move the kvm_ops_static_call_update() to x86.c [Sean]
- Drop kvm_pmu_ops_static_call_update() [Sean]
- Fix WARNING that macros KVM_X86_OP should not use a trailing semicolon

[1] https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/cover.1610680941.git.jbaron@akamai.com/
[2] perf record -e branch-instructions -e branch-misses \
-e cache-misses -e cache-references -e cpu-cycles \
-e instructions ./workload

Thanks,
