block: add support for IO CPU affinity
This patch adds support for controlling the IO completion CPU of either all requests on a queue, or on a per-request basis. We export a sysfs variable (rq_affinity) which, if set, migrates completions of requests to the CPU that originally submitted it. A bio helper (bio_set_completion_cpu()) is also added, so that queuers can ask for completion on that specific CPU. In testing, this has been show to cut the system time by as much as 20-40% on synthetic workloads where CPU affinity is desired. This requires a little help from the architecture, so it'll only work as designed for archs that are using the new generic smp helper infrastructure. Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jens.axboe@oracle.com>
