[PATCH] reorder struct pipe_buf_operations
Fields of struct pipe_buf_operations have not a precise layout (ie not optimized to fit cache lines nor reduce cache line ping pongs) The bufs[] array is *large* and is placed near the beginning of the structure, so all following fields have a large offset. This is unfortunate because many archs have smaller instructions when using small offsets relative to a base register. On x86 for example, 7 bits offsets have smaller instruction lengths. Moving bufs[] at the end of pipe_buf_operations permits all fields to have small offsets, and reduce text size, and icache pressure. # size vmlinux.pre vmlinux text data bss dec hex filename 3268989 664356 492196 4425541 438745 vmlinux.pre 3268765 664356 492196 4425317 438665 vmlinux So this patch reduces text size by 224 bytes on my x86_64 machine. Similar results on ia32. Signed-off-by: Eric Dumazet <dada1@cosmosbay.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
