Subject: [PATCHSET] workqueue: concurrency managed workqueue, take#5
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Monday 14th June 2010 21:37:17 UTC (over 6 years ago)
Hello, all.

This is the fifth take of cmwq (concurrency managed workqueue)
patchset.  It's on top of v2.6.35-rc3 + sched/core patches.  Git tree
is available at

  git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tj/wq.git
review-cmwq

Changes from the last take[L] are...

* fscache patches are omitted for now.

* The patchset is rebased on cpu_stop + sched/core, which now includes
  all the necessary scheduler patches.  cpu_stop already reimplements
  stop_machine so that it doesn't use RT workqueue, so this patchset
  simply drops RT wq support.

* __set_cpus_allowed() was determined to be unnecessary with recent
  scheduler changes.  On cpu re-onlining, cmwq now kills all idle
  workers and tells busy ones to rebind after finishing the current
  work by scheduling a dedicated work.  This allows managing proper
  cpu binding without adding overhead to hotpath.

* Oleg's clear work->data patch moved at the head of the queue and now
  lives in the for-next branch which will be pushed to mainline on the
  next merge window.

* Applied Oleg's review.

  * Comments updated as suggested.

  * work_flags_to_color() replaced w/ get_work_color()

  * nr_cwqs_to_flush bug which could cause premature flush completion
    fixed.

  * Replace rewind + list_for_each_entry_safe_continue() w/
    list_for_each_entry_safe_from().

  * Don't directly write to *work_data_bits() but use __set_bit()
    instead.

  * Fixed cpu hotplug exclusion bug.

* Other misc tweaks.

Now that all scheduler bits are in place, I'll keep the tree stable
and publish it to linux-next soonish, so this hopefully is the last of
exhausting massive postings of this patchset.

Jeff, Arjan, I think it'll be best to route the libata and async
patches through wq tree.  Would that be okay?
