Subject[PATCH] mm: memcg/slab: optimize objcg stock draining
Date
Imran Khan reported a regression in hackbench results caused by the
commit f2fe7b09a52b ("mm: memcg/slab: charge individual slab objects
instead of pages"). The regression is noticeable in the case of
a consequent allocation of several relatively large slab objects,
e.g. skb's. As soon as the amount of stocked bytes exceeds PAGE_SIZE,
drain_obj_stock() and __memcg_kmem_uncharge() are called, and it leads
to a number of atomic operations in page_counter_uncharge().

The corresponding call graph is below (provided by Imran Khan):
|__alloc_skb
| |
| |__kmalloc_reserve.isra.61
| | |
| | |__kmalloc_node_track_caller
| | | |
| | | |slab_pre_alloc_hook.constprop.88
| | | obj_cgroup_charge
| | | | |
| | | | |__memcg_kmem_charge
| | | | | |
| | | | | |page_counter_try_charge
| | | | |
| | | | |refill_obj_stock
| | | | | |
| | | | | |drain_obj_stock.isra.68
| | | | | | |
| | | | | | |__memcg_kmem_uncharge
| | | | | | | |
| | | | | | | |page_counter_uncharge
| | | | | | | | |
| | | | | | | | |page_counter_cancel
| | | |
| | | |
| | | |__slab_alloc
| | | | |
| | | | |___slab_alloc
| | | | |
| | | |slab_post_alloc_hook

Instead of directly uncharging the accounted kernel memory, it's
possible to refill the generic page-sized per-cpu stock instead.
It's a much faster operation, especially on a default hierarchy.
As a bonus, __memcg_kmem_uncharge_page() will also get faster,
so the freeing of page-sized kernel allocations (e.g. large kmallocs)
will become faster.

A similar change has been done earlier for the socket memory by
the commit 475d0487a2ad ("mm: memcontrol: use per-cpu stocks for
socket memory uncharging").
