mutex: adaptive spinnning, performance tweaks
Spin more agressively. This is less fair but also markedly faster. The numbers: * dbench 50 (higher is better): spin 1282MB/s v10 548MB/s v10 no wait 1868MB/s * 4k creates (numbers in files/second higher is better): spin avg 200.60 median 193.20 std 19.71 high 305.93 low 186.82 v10 avg 180.94 median 175.28 std 13.91 high 229.31 low 168.73 v10 no wait avg 232.18 median 222.38 std 22.91 high 314.66 low 209.12 * File stats (numbers in seconds, lower is better): spin 2.27s v10 5.1s v10 no wait 1.6s ( The source changes are smaller than they look, I just moved the need_resched checks in __mutex_lock_common after the cmpxchg. ) Signed-off-by: Chris Mason <chris.mason@oracle.com> Signed-off-by: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
