parentshmem: convert shmem_init_inodecache() to void (diff)
mm, sysctl: make NUMA stats configurable
This is the second step which introduces a tunable interface that allow numa stats configurable for optimizing zone_statistics(), as suggested by Dave Hansen and Ying Huang. ========================================================================= When page allocation performance becomes a bottleneck and you can tolerate some possible tool breakage and decreased numa counter precision, you can do: echo 0 > /proc/sys/vm/numa_stat In this case, numa counter update is ignored. We can see about *4.8%*(185->176) drop of cpu cycles per single page allocation and reclaim on Jesper's page_bench01 (single thread) and *8.1%*(343->315) drop of cpu cycles per single page allocation and reclaim on Jesper's page_bench03 (88 threads) running on a 2-Socket Broadwell-based server (88 threads, 126G memory). Benchmark link provided by Jesper D Brouer (increase loop times to 10000000): https://github.com/netoptimizer/prototype-kernel/tree/master/kernel/mm/bench ========================================================================= When page allocation performance is not a bottleneck and you want all tooling to work, you can do: echo 1 > /proc/sys/vm/numa_stat This is system default setting. Many thanks to Michal Hocko, Dave Hansen, Ying Huang and Vlastimil Babka for comments to help improve the original patch.
