mm, page_alloc: defer debugging checks of pages allocated from the PCP
Every page allocated checks a number of page fields for validity. This catches corruption bugs of pages that are already freed but it is expensive. This patch weakens the debugging check by checking PCP pages only when the PCP lists are being refilled. All compound pages are checked. This potentially avoids debugging checks entirely if the PCP lists are never emptied and refilled so some corruption issues may be missed. Full checking requires DEBUG_VM. With the two deferred debugging patches applied, the impact to a page allocator microbenchmark is 4.6.0-rc3 4.6.0-rc3 inline-v3r6 deferalloc-v3r7 Min alloc-odr0-1 344.00 ( 0.00%) 317.00 ( 7.85%) Min alloc-odr0-2 248.00 ( 0.00%) 231.00 ( 6.85%) Min alloc-odr0-4 209.00 ( 0.00%) 192.00 ( 8.13%) Min alloc-odr0-8 181.00 ( 0.00%) 166.00 ( 8.29%) Min alloc-odr0-16 168.00 ( 0.00%) 154.00 ( 8.33%) Min alloc-odr0-32 161.00 ( 0.00%) 148.00 ( 8.07%) Min alloc-odr0-64 158.00 ( 0.00%) 145.00 ( 8.23%) Min alloc-odr0-128 156.00 ( 0.00%) 143.00 ( 8.33%) Min alloc-odr0-256 168.00 ( 0.00%) 154.00 ( 8.33%) Min alloc-odr0-512 178.00 ( 0.00%) 167.00 ( 6.18%) Min alloc-odr0-1024 186.00 ( 0.00%) 174.00 ( 6.45%) Min alloc-odr0-2048 192.00 ( 0.00%) 180.00 ( 6.25%) Min alloc-odr0-4096 198.00 ( 0.00%) 184.00 ( 7.07%) Min alloc-odr0-8192 200.00 ( 0.00%) 188.00 ( 6.00%) Min alloc-odr0-16384 201.00 ( 0.00%) 188.00 ( 6.47%) Min free-odr0-1 189.00 ( 0.00%) 180.00 ( 4.76%) Min free-odr0-2 132.00 ( 0.00%) 126.00 ( 4.55%) Min free-odr0-4 104.00 ( 0.00%) 99.00 ( 4.81%) Min free-odr0-8 90.00 ( 0.00%) 85.00 ( 5.56%) Min free-odr0-16 84.00 ( 0.00%) 80.00 ( 4.76%) Min free-odr0-32 80.00 ( 0.00%) 76.00 ( 5.00%) Min free-odr0-64 78.00 ( 0.00%) 74.00 ( 5.13%) Min free-odr0-128 77.00 ( 0.00%) 73.00 ( 5.19%) Min free-odr0-256 94.00 ( 0.00%) 91.00 ( 3.19%) Min free-odr0-512 108.00 ( 0.00%) 112.00 ( -3.70%) Min free-odr0-1024 115.00 ( 0.00%) 118.00 ( -2.61%) Min free-odr0-2048 120.00 ( 0.00%) 125.00 ( -4.17%) Min free-odr0-4096 123.00 ( 0.00%) 129.00 ( -4.88%) Min free-odr0-8192 126.00 ( 0.00%) 130.00 ( -3.17%) Min free-odr0-16384 126.00 ( 0.00%) 131.00 ( -3.97%) Note that the free paths for large numbers of pages is impacted as the debugging cost gets shifted into that path when the page data is no longer necessarily cache-hot.
