Subject[PATCH bpf-next RFC v3 0/6] bpf: add BPF_MAP_DUMP command to dump more than one entry per call
From
This introduces a new command to retrieve a variable number of entries
from a bpf map.

This new command can be executed from the existing BPF syscall as
follows:

err = bpf(BPF_MAP_DUMP, union bpf_attr *attr, u32 size)
using attr->dump.map_fd, attr->dump.prev_key, attr->dump.buf,
attr->dump.buf_len
returns zero or negative error, and populates buf and buf_len on
succees

This implementation is wrapping the existing bpf methods:
map_get_next_key and map_lookup_elem
the results show that even with a 1-elem_size buffer, it runs ~40 faster
than the current implementation, improvements of ~85% are reported when
the buffer size is increased, although, after the buffer size is around
5% of the total number of entries there's no huge difference in
increasing it.

Tested:
Tried different size buffers to handle case where the bulk is bigger, or
the elements to retrieve are less than the existing ones, all runs read
a map of 100K entries. Below are the results(in ns) from the different
runs:

buf_len_1: 69038725 entry-by-entry: 112384424 improvement
38.569134
buf_len_2: 40897447 entry-by-entry: 111030546 improvement
63.165590
buf_len_230: 13652714 entry-by-entry: 111694058 improvement
87.776687
buf_len_5000: 13576271 entry-by-entry: 111101169 improvement
87.780263
buf_len_73000: 14694343 entry-by-entry: 111740162 improvement
86.849542
buf_len_100000: 13745969 entry-by-entry: 114151991 improvement
87.958187
buf_len_234567: 14329834 entry-by-entry: 114427589 improvement
87.476941

Changelog:

v3:
- add explanation of the API in the commit message
- fix masked errors and return them to user
- copy last_key from return buf into prev_key if it was provided
- run test with kpti and retpoline mitigations

v2:
- use proper bpf-next tag

Brian Vazquez (6):
bpf: add bpf_map_value_size and bp_map_copy_value helper functions
bpf: add BPF_MAP_DUMP command to dump more than one entry per call
bpf: keep bpf.h in sync with tools/
