Subject[PATCH 07/11] x86/intel_rdt: Implement scheduling support for Intel RDT
Date
Adds support for IA32_PQR_ASSOC MSR writes during task scheduling. For
Cache Allocation, MSR write would let the task fill in the cache
'subset' represented by the task's capacity bit mask.

The high 32 bits in the per processor MSR IA32_PQR_ASSOC represents the
CLOSid. During context switch kernel implements this by writing the
CLOSid of the task belongs to the CPU's IA32_PQR_ASSOC MSR.

This patch also implements a common software cache for IA32_PQR_MSR
(RMID 0:9, CLOSId 32:63) to be used by both Cache monitoring (CMT) and
Cache allocation. CMT updates the RMID where as cache_alloc updates the
CLOSid in the software cache. During scheduling when the new RMID/CLOSid
value is different from the cached values, IA32_PQR_MSR is updated.
Since the measured rdmsr latency for IA32_PQR_MSR is very high (~250
cycles) this software cache is necessary to avoid reading the MSR to
compare the current CLOSid value.

The following considerations are done for the PQR MSR write so that it
minimally impacts scheduler hot path:
- This path does not exist on any non-intel platforms.
- On Intel platforms, this would not exist by default unless INTEL_RDT
is enabled.
- remains a no-op when INTEL_RDT is enabled and intel SKU does not
support the feature.
- When feature is available and enabled, never does MSR write till the
user manually starts using one of the capacity bit masks.
- MSR write is only done when there is a task with different Closid is
scheduled on the CPU. Typically if the task groups are bound to be
scheduled on a set of CPUs, the number of MSR writes is greatly
reduced.
- A per CPU cache of CLOSids is maintained to do the check so that we
dont have to do a rdmsr which actually costs a lot of cycles.
