2010-12-17xen: Use this_cpu_opsChristoph Lameter
Use this_cpu_ops to reduce code size and simplify things in various places. V3->V4: Move instance of this_cpu_inc_return to a later patchset so that this patch can be applied without infrastructure changes.

2009-02-03xen: disable interrupts before saving in percpuJeremy Fitzhardinge
Impact: Fix race condition xen_mc_batch has a small preempt race where it takes the address of a percpu variable immediately before disabling interrupts, thereby leaving a small window in which we may migrate to another cpu and save the flags in the wrong percpu variable. Disable interrupts before saving the old flags in a percpu. Signed-off-by: Jeremy Fitzhardinge <jeremy.fitzhardinge@citrix.com> Signed-off-by: H. Peter Anvin <hpa@zytor.com>
2009-01-16percpu: add optimized generic percpu accessorsIngo Molnar
It is an optimization and a cleanup, and adds the following new generic percpu methods: percpu_read() percpu_write() percpu_add() percpu_sub() percpu_and() percpu_or() percpu_xor() and implements support for them on x86. (other architectures will fall back to a default implementation) The advantage is that for example to read a local percpu variable, instead of this sequence: return __get_cpu_var(var); ffffffff8102ca2b: 48 8b 14 fd 80 09 74 mov -0x7e8bf680(,%rdi,8),%rdx ffffffff8102ca32: 81 ffffffff8102ca33: 48 c7 c0 d8 59 00 00 mov $0x59d8,%rax ffffffff8102ca3a: 48 8b 04 10 mov (%rax,%rdx,1),%rax We can get a single instruction by using the optimized variants: return percpu_read(var); ffffffff8102ca3f: 65 48 8b 05 91 8f fd mov %gs:0x7efd8f91(%rip),%rax I also cleaned up the x86-specific APIs and made the x86 code use these new generic percpu primitives. tj: * fixed generic percpu_sub() definition as Roel Kluin pointed out * added percpu_and() for completeness's sake * made generic percpu ops atomic against preemption Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org>
2008-06-25xen: add mechanism to extend existing multicallsJeremy Fitzhardinge
Some Xen hypercalls accept an array of operations to work on. In general this is because its more efficient for the hypercall to the work all at once rather than as separate hypercalls (even batched as a multicall). This patch adds a mechanism (xen_mc_extend_args()) to allocate more argument space to the last-issued multicall, in order to extend its argument list. The user of this mechanism is xen/mmu.c, which uses it to extend the args array of mmu_update. This is particularly valuable when doing the update for a large mprotect, which goes via ptep_modify_prot_commit(), but it also manages to batch updates to pgd/pmds as well.

2007-10-16xen: add batch completion callbacksJeremy Fitzhardinge
This adds a mechanism to register a callback function to be called once a batch of hypercalls has been issued. This is typically used to unlock things which must remain locked until the hypercall has taken place.

2007-10-16paravirt: clean up lazy mode handlingJeremy Fitzhardinge
Currently, the set_lazy_mode pv_op is overloaded with 5 functions: 1. enter lazy cpu mode 2. leave lazy cpu mode 3. enter lazy mmu mode 4. leave lazy mmu mode 5. flush pending batched operations This complicates each paravirt backend, since it needs to deal with all the possible state transitions, handling flushing, etc. In particular, flushing is quite distinct from the other 4 functions, and seems to just cause complication. This patch removes the set_lazy_mode operation, and adds "enter" and "leave" lazy mode operations on mmu_ops and cpu_ops. All the logic associated with enter and leaving lazy states is now in common code (basically BUG_ONs to make sure that no mode is current when entering a lazy mode, and make sure that the mode is current when leaving). Also, flush is handled in a common way, by simply leaving and re-entering the lazy mode. The result is that the Xen, lguest and VMI lazy mode implementations are much simpler.
