net 01/05: fib_rules: rearrange struct fib_rule
commit b8952893d5d86f69c4e499d191b98c6658f64b0f Author: Patrick McHardy <kaber@trash.net> Date: Thu Dec 3 12:05:22 2009 +0100 net: fib_rules: rearrange struct fib_rule The ifname member is only used to resolve interface names and is not needed during rule lookups. The target and ctarget members however are used during rule lookups and are currently located in a second cacheline. Move ifname further to the end to make sure both target and ctarget are located in the same cacheline as other members used during rule lookups. The layout on 64 bit changes from: struct fib_rule { ... u32 table; /* 56 4 */ u8 action; /* 60 1 */ /* XXX 3 bytes hole, try to pack */ /* --- cacheline 1 boundary (64 bytes) --- */ u32 target; /* 64 4 */ /* XXX 4 bytes hole, try to pack */ struct fib_rule * ctarget; /* 72 8 */ struct rcu_head rcu; /* 80 16 */ struct net * fr_net; /* 96 8 */ }; to: struct fib_rule { ... u32 table; /* 40 4 */ u8 action; /* 44 1 */ /* XXX 3 bytes hole, try to pack */ u32 target; /* 48 4 */ /* XXX 4 bytes hole, try to pack */ struct fib_rule * ctarget; /* 56 8 */ /* --- cacheline 1 boundary (64 bytes) --- */ char ifname[16]; /* 64 16 */ struct rcu_head rcu; /* 80 16 */ struct net * fr_net; /* 96 8 */ }; Signed-off-by: Patrick McHardy <kaber@trash.net> Signed-off-by: David S.
