Subject[RFC PATCH 2/2] io_uring: Optimise cq waiting with wait_threshold
Date
From: Pavel Begunkov <asml.silence@gmail.com>

While waiting for completion events in io_cqring_wait(), the process
will be waken up inside wait_threshold_interruptible() on any request
completion, check num of events in completion queue and potentially go
to sleep again.

Apparently, there could be a lot of such spurious wakeups with lots of
overhead. It especially manifests itself, when min_events is large, and
completions are arriving one by one or in small batches (that usually
is true).

E.g. if device completes requests one by one and io_uring_enter is
waiting for 100 events, then there will be ~99 spurious wakeups.

Use new wait_threshold_*() instead, which won't wake it up until
necessary number of events is collected.

Performance test:
The first thread generates requests (QD=512) one by one, so they will
be completed in the similar pattern. The second thread waiting for
128 events to complete.

Tested with null_blk with 5us delay
and 3.8GHz Intel CPU.

throughput before: 270 KIOPS
throughput after: 370 KIOPS
So, ~40% throughput boost on this exaggerate test.
