parentudp: Use hlist_nulls in UDP RCU code (diff)
net: Convert TCP & DCCP hash tables to use RCU / hlist_nulls
RCU was added to UDP lookups, using a fast infrastructure : - sockets kmem_cache use SLAB_DESTROY_BY_RCU and dont pay the price of call_rcu() at freeing time. - hlist_nulls permits to use few memory barriers. This patch uses same infrastructure for TCP/DCCP established and timewait sockets. Thanks to SLAB_DESTROY_BY_RCU, no slowdown for applications using short lived TCP connections. A followup patch, converting rwlocks to spinlocks will even speedup this case. __inet_lookup_established() is pretty fast now we dont have to dirty a contended cache line (read_lock/read_unlock) Only established and timewait hashtable are converted to RCU (bind table and listen table are still using traditional locking) Signed-off-by: Eric Dumazet <dada1@cosmosbay.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
