Subject[RFC PATCH 00/18] Assorted rhashtable improvements
the following is my current set of rhashtable improvements.
Some have been seen before, some have been improved,
others are new.

They include:
working list-nulls support
stability improvements for rhashtable_walk
bit-spin-locks for simplicity and reduced cache footprint
during modification
optional per-cpu locks to improve scalability for modificiation
various cleanups

If I get suitable acks I will send more focused subsets to Davem for

I had said previously that I thought there was a way to provide
stable walking of an rhl table in the face of concurrent
insert/delete. Having tried, I no longer think this can be
done without substantial impact to lookups and/or other operations.
The idea of attaching a marker to the list is incompatible with
the normal rules for working with rcu-protected lists ("attaching"
might be manageable. "moving" or "removing" is the problematic part).

The last patch is the one I'm least certain of. It seems like a good
idea to improve the chance of a walk avoiding any rehash, but it
cannot provide a solid guarantee without risking a denial-of-service.
My compromise is to guarantee no rehashes caused by shrinkage, and
discourage rehashes caused by growth. I'm not yet sure if that is
sufficiently valuable, but I thought I would include the patch in the
RFC anyway.



NeilBrown (18):
rhashtable: silence RCU warning in rhashtable_test.
rhashtable: split rhashtable.h
rhashtable: remove nulls_base and related code.
rhashtable: detect when object movement might have invalidated a lookup
rhashtable: simplify INIT_RHT_NULLS_HEAD()
rhashtable: simplify nested_table_alloc() and rht_bucket_nested_insert()
rhashtable: use cmpxchg() to protect ->future_tbl.
rhashtable: clean up dereference of ->future_tbl.
rhashtable: use cmpxchg() in nested_table_alloc()
rhashtable: remove rhashtable_walk_peek()
rhashtable: further improve stability of rhashtable_walk
rhashtable: add rhashtable_walk_prev()
rhashtable: don't hold lock on first table throughout insertion.
rhashtable: allow rht_bucket_var to return NULL.
rhashtable: use bit_spin_locks to protect hash bucket.
rhashtable: allow percpu element counter
rhashtable: rename rht_for_each*continue as *from.
rhashtable: add rhashtable_walk_delay_rehash()
