Subject[PATCH 0/3] KVM: optimize the kvm_vcpu_on_spin
Date
This is a simple optimization for kvm_vcpu_on_spin, the
main idea is described in patch-1's commit msg.

I did some tests base on the RFC version, the result shows
that it can improves the performance slightly.

== Geekbench-3.4.1 ==
VM1: 8U,4G, vcpu(0...7) is 1:1 pinned to pcpu(6...11,18,19)
running Geekbench-3.4.1 *10 truns*
VM2/VM3/VM4: configure is the same as VM1
stress each vcpu usage(seed by top in guest) to 40%

The comparison of each testcase's score:
(higher is better)
before after improve
Inter
single 1176.7 1179.0 0.2%
multi 3459.5 3426.5 -0.9%
Float
single 1150.5 1150.9 0.0%
multi 3364.5 3391.9 0.8%
Memory(stream)
single 1768.7 1773.1 0.2%
multi 2511.6 2557.2 1.8%
Overall
single 1284.2 1286.2 0.2%
multi 3231.4 3238.4 0.2%


== kernbench-0.42 ==
VM1: 8U,12G, vcpu(0...7) is 1:1 pinned to pcpu(6...11,18,19)
running "kernbench -n 10"
VM2/VM3/VM4: configure is the same as VM1
stress each vcpu usage(seed by top in guest) to 40%

The comparison of 'Elapsed Time':
(sooner is better)
before after improve
load -j4 12.762 12.751 0.1%
load -j32 9.743 8.955 8.1%
load -j 9.688 9.229 4.7%

Changes since RFC:
- only cache result for X86. [David & Cornlia & Paolo]
- add performance numbers. [David]
- impls arm/s390. [Christoffer & David]
- refactor the impls. [me]
