[PATCH] taskstats: use nla_reserve() for reply assembling
Currently taskstats_user_cmd()/taskstats_exit() do: 1) allocate stats 2) fill stats 3) make a temporary copy on stack (236 bytes) 4) copy that copy to skb 5) free stats With the help of nla_reserve() we can operate on skb->data directly, thus avoiding all these steps except 2). So, before this patch: // copy *stats to skb->data int mk_reply(skb, ..., struct taskstats *stats); fill_pid(stats); mk_reply(skb, ..., stats); After: // return a pointer to skb->data struct taskstats *mk_reply(skb, ...); stat = mk_reply(skb, ...); fill_pid(stats); Shrinks taskatsks.o by 162 bytes. A stupid benchmark (send one million TASKSTATS_CMD_ATTR_PID) shows the real user sys before: 4.02 0.06 3.96 4.02 0.04 3.98 4.02 0.04 3.97 after: 3.86 0.08 3.78 3.88 0.10 3.77 3.89 0.09 3.80 but this looks suspiciously good.
