Subject[PATCH -mm] mm, hugetlb: Pass fault address to no page handler
Date
From: Huang Ying <ying.huang@intel.com>

This is to take better advantage of huge page clearing
optimization (c79b57e462b5d, "mm: hugetlb: clear target sub-page last
when clearing huge page"). Which will clear to access sub-page last
to avoid the cache lines of to access sub-page to be evicted when
clearing other sub-pages. This needs to get the address of the
sub-page to access, that is, the fault address inside of the huge
page. So the hugetlb no page fault handler is changed to pass that
information. This will benefit workloads which don't access the begin
of the huge page after page fault.

With this patch, the throughput increases ~28.1% in vm-scalability
anon-w-seq test case with 88 processes on a 2 socket Xeon E5 2699 v4
system (44 cores, 88 threads). The test case creates 88 processes,
each process mmap a big anonymous memory area and writes to it from
the end to the begin. For each process, other processes could be seen
as other workload which generates heavy cache pressure. At the same
time, the cache miss rate reduced from ~36.3% to ~25.6%, the
IPC (instruction per cycle) increased from 0.3 to 0.37, and the time
spent in user space is reduced ~19.3%
