Subject: [PATCH 00/32] AIO performance improvements/cleanups, v3
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Thursday 27th December 2012 01:59:37 UTC (over 4 years ago)
Last posting: http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel.aio.general/3242

As before, changes should mostly be noted in the patch descriptions. 

Some random bits:
 * flush_dcache_page() patch is new
 * Rewrote the aio_read_evt() stuff again
 * Fixed a few comments
 * Included some more patches, notably the batch completion stuff

My git repo has Jens' aio/dio patches on top of this stuff. As of the
latest version, I'm seeing a couple percent better throughput with the
ring buffer, and I think Jens was seeing a couple percent better with
his linked list approach - at this point I think the difference is
noise, we're both testing with fairly crappy drivers.

Patch series is on top of v3.7, git repo is at
http://evilpiepirate.org/git/linux-bcache.git
