Subject: [PATCH 0/1] __asm_copy_to-from_user: Reduce more byte_copy
Date: Fri, 30 Jul 2021 22:50:52 +0900	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <65f08f01-d4ce-75c2-030b-f8759003e061@gmail.com> (raw)

Adding none unrolling word_copy, which is used if the size is smaller
than 9*SZREG.

This patch is based on Palmer's past comment.
> My guess is that some workloads will want some smaller unrolling factors,

It will reduce the number of slow byte_copy being used when the 
size is small.

Have tested on qemu rv32, qemu rv64 and beaglev beta board.

In the future, I am planning to convert uaccess.S to inline assembly 
in .c file. Then it will be easier to optimize on both in-order core and
out-of-order core with #ifdef macro in c.
