[PATCH v6 0/9] x86/tlb: Concurrent TLB flushes

From: Nadav Amit <namit@xxxxxxxxxx>

The series improves TLB shootdown by flushing the local TLB concurrently
with remote TLBs, overlapping the IPI delivery time with the local
flush. Performance numbers can be found in the previous version [1].

v5 was rebased on 5.11 (long time after v4), and had some bugs and
embarrassing build errors. Peter Zijlstra and Christoph Hellwig had some
comments as well. These issues were addressed (excluding one 82-chars
line that I left). Based on their feedback, an additional patch was also
added to reuse on_each_cpu_cond_mask() code and avoid unnecessary calls
by inlining.

KernelCI showed RCU stalls on arm64, which I could not figure out from
the kernel splat. If this issue persists, I would appreciate it someone
can assist in debugging or at least provide the output when running the

[1] https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20190823224153.15223-1-namit@xxxxxxxxxx/

v5 -> v6:
* Address build warnings due to rebase mistakes
* Reuse code from on_each_cpu_cond_mask() and inline [PeterZ]
* Fix some style issues [Hellwig]

v4 -> v5:
* Rebase on 5.11
* Move concurrent smp logic to smp_call_function_many_cond() 
* Remove SGI-UV patch which is not needed anymore

v3 -> v4:
* Merge flush_tlb_func_local and flush_tlb_func_remote() [Peter]
* Prevent preemption on_each_cpu(). It is not needed, but it prevents
  concerns. [Peter/tglx]
* Adding acked-, review-by tags

v2 -> v3:
* Open-code the remote/local-flush decision code [Andy]
* Fix hyper-v, Xen implementations [Andrew]
* Fix redundant TLB flushes.

v1 -> v2:
* Removing the patches that Thomas took [tglx]
* Adding hyper-v, Xen compile-tested implementations [Dave]
* Removing UV [Andy]
* Adding lazy optimization, removing inline keyword [Dave]
* Restructuring patch-set

RFCv2 -> v1:
* Fix comment on flush_tlb_multi [Juergen]
* Removing async invalidation optimizations [Andy]
* Adding KVM support [Paolo]
