Pull TIF_NOTIFY_SIGNAL updates from Jens Axboe: "This sits on top of of the core entry/exit and x86 entry branch from the tip tree, which contains the generic and x86 parts of this work. Here we convert the rest of the archs to support TIF_NOTIFY_SIGNAL. With that done, we can get rid of JOBCTL_TASK_WORK from task_work and signal.c, and also remove a deadlock work-around in io_uring around knowing that signal based task_work waking is invoked with the sighand wait queue head lock. The motivation for this work is to decouple signal notify based task_work, of which io_uring is a heavy user of, from sighand. The sighand lock becomes a huge contention point, particularly for threaded workloads where it's shared between threads. Even outside of threaded applications it's slower than it needs to be. Roman Gershman <romger@amazon.com> reported that his networked workload dropped from 1.6M QPS at 80% CPU to 1.0M QPS at 100% CPU after io_uring was changed to use TIF_NOTIFY_SIGNAL. The time was all spent hammering on the sighand lock, showing 57% of the CPU time there [1]. There are further cleanups possible on top of this. One example is TIF_PATCH_PENDING, where a patch already exists to use TIF_NOTIFY_SIGNAL instead. Hopefully this will also lead to more consolidation, but the work stands on its own as well" [1] https://github.com/axboe/liburing/issues/215 * tag 'tif-task_work.arch-2020-12-14' of git://git.kernel.dk/linux-block: (28 commits) io_uring: remove 'twa_signal_ok' deadlock work-around kernel: remove checking for TIF_NOTIFY_SIGNAL signal: kill JOBCTL_TASK_WORK io_uring: JOBCTL_TASK_WORK is no longer used by task_work task_work: remove legacy TWA_SIGNAL path sparc: add support for TIF_NOTIFY_SIGNAL riscv: add support for TIF_NOTIFY_SIGNAL nds32: add support for TIF_NOTIFY_SIGNAL ia64: add support for TIF_NOTIFY_SIGNAL h8300: add support for TIF_NOTIFY_SIGNAL c6x: add support for TIF_NOTIFY_SIGNAL alpha: add support for TIF_NOTIFY_SIGNAL xtensa: add support for TIF_NOTIFY_SIGNAL arm: add support for TIF_NOTIFY_SIGNAL microblaze: add support for TIF_NOTIFY_SIGNAL hexagon: add support for TIF_NOTIFY_SIGNAL csky: add support for TIF_NOTIFY_SIGNAL openrisc: add support for TIF_NOTIFY_SIGNAL sh: add support for TIF_NOTIFY_SIGNAL um: add support for TIF_NOTIFY_SIGNAL ...
