Subject[HMM v13 00/18] HMM (Heterogeneous Memory Management) v13
Date
Cliff note: HMM offers 2 things (each standing on its own). First
it allows to use device memory transparently inside any process
without any modifications to process program code. Second it allows
to mirror process address space on a device.

Change since v12 is the use of struct page for device memory even if
the device memory is not accessible by the CPU (because of limitation
impose by the bus between the CPU and the device).

Using struct page means that their are minimal changes to core mm
code. HMM build on top of ZONE_DEVICE to provide struct page, it
adds new features to ZONE_DEVICE. The first 7 patches implement
those changes.

Rest of patchset is divided into 3 features that can each be use
independently from one another. First is the process address space
mirroring (patch 9 to 13), this allow to snapshot CPU page table
and to keep the device page table synchronize with the CPU one.

Second is a new memory migration helper which allow migration of
a range of virtual address of a process. This memory migration
also allow device to use their own DMA engine to perform the copy
between the source memory and destination memory. This can be
usefull even outside HMM context in many usecase.

Third part of the patchset (patch 17-18) is a set of helper to
register a ZONE_DEVICE node and manage it. It is meant as a
convenient helper so that device drivers do not each have to
reimplement over and over the same boiler plate code.


I am hoping that this can now be consider for inclusion upstream.
Bottom line is that without HMM we can not support some of the new
hardware features on x86 PCIE. I do believe we need some solution
to support those features or we won't be able to use such hardware
in standard like C++17, OpenCL 3.0 and others.

I have been working with NVidia to bring up this feature on their
Pascal GPU. There are real hardware that you can buy today that
could benefit from HMM. We also intend to leverage this inside the
open source nouveau driver.


In this patchset i restricted myself to set of core features what
is missing:
- force read only on CPU for memory duplication and GPU atomic
- changes to mmu_notifier for optimization purposes
- migration of file back page to device memory

I plan to submit a couple more patchset to implement those feature
once core HMM is upstream.


Is there anything blocking HMM inclusion ? Something fundamental ?
