From: Andrea Arcangeli <aarcange <at> redhat.com>
Subject: [PATCH 00/39] [RFC] AutoNUMA alpha10
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Monday 26th March 2012 17:45:47 UTC (over 4 years ago)
Hi everyone,

This is the result of the first round of cleanups of the AutoNUMA patch.

This can also be fetched through an autonuma-alpha10 branch.

git clone --reference linux -b autonuma-alpha10 git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/andrea/aa.git

A first attempt for an highlevel description of how this works can be
found in the comment of the patch "autonuma: core".

Some benchmark results can be found in the below document (updated to
include the SMT regression test, with only half of the cores loaded,
and half idle, page 7).

Page 9 measures the overhead of the knuma_scand pass during a kernel
build with its default 10sec knuma_scand pass interval.

TODO:

1) THP native migration
2) dynamically allocate the AutoNUMA struct page fields like memcg
   does it so they won't take any memory if the kernel is booted on
   not-NUMA hardware
3) write Documentation/vm/autonuma.txt with a kernel internal focus
4) possibly find a way to improve the kernel/sched/numa.c algorithm
   with an implementation that is more integrated in CFS

Andrea Arcangeli (36):
  autonuma: make set_pmd_at always available
  xen: document Xen is using an unused bit for the pagetables
  autonuma: define _PAGE_NUMA_PTE and _PAGE_NUMA_PMD
  autonuma: x86 pte_numa() and pmd_numa()
  autonuma: generic pte_numa() and pmd_numa()
  autonuma: teach gup_fast about pte_numa
  autonuma: introduce kthread_bind_node()
  autonuma: mm_autonuma and sched_autonuma data structures
  autonuma: define the autonuma flags
  autonuma: core autonuma.h header
  autonuma: CPU follow memory algorithm
  autonuma: add page structure fields
  autonuma: knuma_migrated per NUMA node queues
  autonuma: init knuma_migrated queues
  autonuma: autonuma_enter/exit
  autonuma: call autonuma_setup_new_exec()
  autonuma: alloc/free/init sched_autonuma
  autonuma: alloc/free/init mm_autonuma
  mm: add unlikely to the mm allocation failure check
  autonuma: avoid CFS select_task_rq_fair to return -1
  autonuma: select_task_rq_fair cleanup new_cpu < 0 fix
  autonuma: teach CFS about autonuma affinity
  autonuma: select_idle_sibling cleanup target assignment
  autonuma: core
  autonuma: follow_page check for pte_numa/pmd_numa
  autonuma: default mempolicy follow AutoNUMA
  autonuma: call autonuma_split_huge_page()
  autonuma: make khugepaged pte_numa aware
  autonuma: retain page last_nid information in khugepaged
  autonuma: numa hinting page faults entry points
  autonuma: reset autonuma page data when pages are freed
  autonuma: initialize page structure fields
  autonuma: link mm/autonuma.o and kernel/sched/numa.o
  autonuma: add CONFIG_AUTONUMA and CONFIG_AUTONUMA_DEFAULT_ENABLED
  autonuma: boost khugepaged scanning rate
  autonuma: NUMA scheduler SMT awareness

Hillf Danton (3):
  autonuma: fix selecting task runqueue
  autonuma: fix finding idlest cpu
  autonuma: fix selecting idle sibling
