2012-07-10powerpc: Fix usage of register macros getting ready for %r0 changeMichael Neuling
Anything that uses a constructed instruction (ie. from ppc-opcode.h), need to use the new R0 macro, as %r0 is not going to work. Also convert usages of macros where we are just determining an offset (usually for a load/store), like: std r14,STK_REG(r14)(r1) Can't use STK_REG(r14) as %r14 doesn't work in the STK_REG macro since it's just calculating an offset.

2012-07-03powerpc: POWER7 optimised copy_page using VMX and enhanced prefetchAnton Blanchard
Implement a POWER7 optimised copy_page using VMX and enhanced prefetch instructions. We use enhanced prefetch hints to prefetch both the load and store side. We copy a cacheline at a time and fall back to regular loads and stores if we are unable to use VMX (eg we are in an interrupt). The following microbenchmark was used to assess the impact of the patch: http://ozlabs.org/~anton/junkcode/page_fault_file.c We test MAP_PRIVATE page faults across a 1GB file, 100 times: # time ./page_fault_file -p -l 1G -i 100 Before: 22.25s After: 18.89s 17% faster Signed-off-by: Anton Blanchard <anton@samba.org> Signed-off-by: Benjamin Herrenschmidt <benh@kernel.crashing.org>
