Subject: [PATCH 0/8] KVM: Optimize MMU notifier's THP page invalidation -v4
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Monday 2nd July 2012 08:52:39 UTC (over 4 years ago)

v2->v3: Fixed intersection calculations. -- patch 3, 8

	Takuya

Takuya Yoshikawa (8):
  KVM: MMU: Use __gfn_to_rmap() to clean up kvm_handle_hva()
  KVM: Introduce hva_to_gfn_memslot() for kvm_handle_hva()
  KVM: MMU: Make kvm_handle_hva() handle range of addresses
  KVM: Introduce kvm_unmap_hva_range() for
kvm_mmu_notifier_invalidate_range_start()
  KVM: Separate rmap_pde from kvm_lpage_info->write_count
  KVM: MMU: Add memslot parameter to hva handlers
  KVM: MMU: Push trace_kvm_age_page() into kvm_age_rmapp()
  KVM: MMU: Avoid handling same rmap_pde in kvm_handle_hva_range()

From v2:

The new test result was impressively good, see below, and THP page
invalidation was more than 5 times faster on my x86 machine.

Before:
  ...
  19.852 us  |  __mmu_notifier_invalidate_range_start();
  28.033 us  |  __mmu_notifier_invalidate_range_start();
  19.066 us  |  __mmu_notifier_invalidate_range_start();
  44.715 us  |  __mmu_notifier_invalidate_range_start();
  31.613 us  |  __mmu_notifier_invalidate_range_start();
  20.659 us  |  __mmu_notifier_invalidate_range_start();
  19.979 us  |  __mmu_notifier_invalidate_range_start();
  20.416 us  |  __mmu_notifier_invalidate_range_start();
  20.632 us  |  __mmu_notifier_invalidate_range_start();
  22.316 us  |  __mmu_notifier_invalidate_range_start();
  ...

After:
  ...
  4.089 us   |  __mmu_notifier_invalidate_range_start();
  4.096 us   |  __mmu_notifier_invalidate_range_start();
