readahead: enforce full readahead size on async mmap readahead
We need this in one particular case and two more general ones. Now we do async readahead for sequential mmap reads, and do it with the help of PG_readahead. For normal reads, PG_readahead is the sufficient condition to do a sequential readahead. But unfortunately, for mmap reads, there is a tiny nuisance: [11736.998347] readahead-init0(process: sh/23926, file: sda1/w3m, offset=0:4503599627370495, ra=0+4-3) = 4 [11737.014985] readahead-around(process: w3m/23926, file: sda1/w3m, offset=0:0, ra=290+32-0) = 17 [11737.019488] readahead-around(process: w3m/23926, file: sda1/w3m, offset=0:0, ra=118+32-0) = 32 [11737.024921] readahead-interleaved(process: w3m/23926, file: sda1/w3m, offset=0:2, ra=4+6-6) = 6 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ An unfavorably small readahead. The original dumb read-around size could be more efficient. That happened because ld-linux.so does a read(832) in L1 before mmap(), which triggers a 4-page readahead, with the second page tagged PG_readahead. L0: open("/lib/libc.so.6", O_RDONLY) = 3 L1: read(3, "\177ELF\2\1\1\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\3\0>\0\1\0\0\0\340\342"..., 832) = 832 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ L2: fstat(3, {st_mode=S_IFREG|0755, st_size=1420624, ...}) = 0 L3: mmap(NULL, 3527256, PROT_READ|PROT_EXEC, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_DENYWRITE, 3, 0) = 0x7fac6e51d000 L4: mprotect(0x7fac6e671000, 2097152, PROT_NONE) = 0 L5: mmap(0x7fac6e871000, 20480, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_FIXED|MAP_DENYWRITE, 3, 0x154000) = 0x7fac6e871000 L6: mmap(0x7fac6e876000, 16984, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_FIXED|MAP_ANONYMOUS, -1, 0) = 0x7fac6e876000 L7: close(3) = 0 In general, the PG_readahead flag will also be hit in cases - sequential reads - clustered random reads A full readahead size is desirable in both cases.
