Subject[PATCH RFC tip/core/rcu 10/14] rcu: Allow rcu_do_batch() to dynamically adjust batch sizes
Date
From: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@google.com>

Bimodal behavior of rcu_do_batch() is not really suited to Google
applications like gfe servers.

When a process with millions of sockets exits, closing all files
queues two rcu callbacks per socket.

This eventually reaches the point where RCU enters an emergency
mode, where rcu_do_batch() do not return until whole queue is flushed.

Each rcu callback lasts at least 70 nsec, so with millions of
elements, we easily spend more than 100 msec without rescheduling.

Goal of this patch is to avoid the infamous message like following
"need_resched set for > 51999388 ns (52 ticks) without schedule"

We dynamically adjust the number of elements we process, instead
of 10 / INFINITE choices, we use a floor of ~1 % of current entries.

If the number is above 1000, we switch to a time based limit of 3 msec
per batch, adjustable with /sys/module/rcutree/parameters/rcu_resched_ns
