Subject[PATCH v2 0/4] Update memcpy, memset etc. for M7/M8 architectures
Date
This series of patches updates the memcpy, memset, copy_to_user, copy_from_user
etc for SPARC M7/M8 architecture.

New algorithm here takes advantage of the M7/M8 block init store ASIs, with much
more optimized way to improve the performance. More detail are in code comments.

Tested and compared the latency measured in ticks(NG4memcpy vs new M7memcpy).

1. Memset numbers(Aligned memset)

No.of bytes NG4memset M7memset Delta ((B-A)/A)*100
(Avg.Ticks A) (Avg.Ticks B) (latency reduction)

There is not much difference in numbers with Un-aligned copies
between NG4memcpy and M7memcpy because they both mostly use the
same algorithems.

v2:
1. Fixed indentation issues found by David Miller
2. Used ENTRY and ENDPROC for the labels in M7patch.S as suggested by David Miller
3. Now M8 also will use M7memcpy. Also tested on M8 config.
4. These patches are created on top of below M8 patches
https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/792661/
https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/792662/
However, I did not see these patches in sparc-next tree. It may be in queue now.
It is possible these patches might cause some build problems. It will resolve
once all M8 patches are in sparc-next tree.

v0: Initial version

Babu Moger (4):
arch/sparc: Separate the exception handlers from NG4memcpy
arch/sparc: Rename exception handlers
arch/sparc: Optimized memcpy, memset, copy_to_user, copy_from_user
for M7/M8
arch/sparc: Add accurate exception reporting in M7memcpy
