Subject[PATCH] mm: Speed up mremap on large regions
Date
Android needs to mremap large regions of memory during memory management
related operations. The mremap system call can be really slow if THP is
not enabled. The bottleneck is move_page_tables, which is copying each
pte at a time, and can be really slow across a large map. Turning on THP
may not be a viable option, and is not for us. This patch speeds up the
performance for non-THP system by copying at the PMD level when possible.

The speed up is three orders of magnitude. On a 1GB mremap, the mremap
completion times drops from 160-250 millesconds to 380-400 microseconds.

Before:
Total mremap time for 1GB data: 242321014 nanoseconds.
Total mremap time for 1GB data: 196842467 nanoseconds.
Total mremap time for 1GB data: 167051162 nanoseconds.

After:
Total mremap time for 1GB data: 385781 nanoseconds.
Total mremap time for 1GB data: 388959 nanoseconds.
Total mremap time for 1GB data: 402813 nanoseconds.

Incase THP is enabled, the optimization is skipped. I also flush the
tlb every time we do this optimization since I couldn't find a way to
determine if the low-level PTEs are dirty. It is seen that the cost of
doing so is not much compared the improvement, on both x86-64 and arm64.
