Subject[PATCH RFC 00/14] kvm/arm: Align the VMID allocation with the arm64 ASID one
This patch series is moving out the ASID allocator in a separate file in order
to re-use it for the VMID. The benefits are:
- CPUs are not forced to exit a roll-over.
- Context invalidation is now per-CPU rather than

There are no performance regression on the fastpath for ASID allocation.
Actually on the hackbench measurement (300 hackbench) it was .7% faster.

The measurement was made on a Seattle based SoC (8 CPUs), with the
number of VMID limited to 4-bit. The test involves running concurrently 40
guests with 2 vCPUs. Each guest will then execute hackbench 5 times
before exiting.

The performance difference between the current algo and the new one are:
- 2.5% less exit from the guest
- 22.4% more flush, although they are now local rather than
- 0.11% faster (just for the record)

The ASID allocator rework to make it generic has been divided in multiple
patches to make the review easier.

A branch with the patch based on 5.1-rc1 can be found:;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/vmid-rework/rfc


Julien Grall (14):
arm64/mm: Introduce asid_info structure and move
asid_generation/asid_map to it
arm64/mm: Move active_asids and reserved_asids to asid_info
arm64/mm: Move bits to asid_info
arm64/mm: Move the variable lock and tlb_flush_pending to asid_info
arm64/mm: Remove dependency on MM in new_context
arm64/mm: Store the number of asid allocated per context
arm64/mm: Introduce NUM_ASIDS
arm64/mm: Split asid_inits in 2 parts
arm64/mm: Split the function check_and_switch_context in 3 parts
arm64/mm: Introduce a callback to flush the local context
arm64: Move the ASID allocator code in a separate file
arm64/lib: asid: Allow user to update the context under the lock
arm/kvm: Introduce a new VMID allocator
kvm/arm: Align the VMID allocation with the arm64 ASID one
