rxrpc: Preallocate peers, conns and calls for incoming service requests
Make it possible for the data_ready handler called from the UDP transport socket to completely instantiate an rxrpc_call structure and make it immediately live by preallocating all the memory it might need. The idea is to cut out the background thread usage as much as possible. [Note that the preallocated structs are not actually used in this patch - that will be done in a future patch.] If insufficient resources are available in the preallocation buffers, it will be possible to discard the DATA packet in the data_ready handler or schedule a BUSY packet without the need to schedule an attempt at allocation in a background thread. To this end: (1) Preallocate rxrpc_peer, rxrpc_connection and rxrpc_call structs to a maximum number each of the listen backlog size. The backlog size is limited to a maxmimum of 32. Only this many of each can be in the preallocation buffer. (2) For userspace sockets, the preallocation is charged initially by listen() and will be recharged by accepting or rejecting pending new incoming calls. (3) For kernel services {,re,dis}charging of the preallocation buffers is handled manually. Two notifier callbacks have to be provided before kernel_listen() is invoked: (a) An indication that a new call has been instantiated. This can be used to trigger background recharging. (b) An indication that a call is being discarded. This is used when the socket is being released. A function, rxrpc_kernel_charge_accept() is called by the kernel service to preallocate a single call. It should be passed the user ID to be used for that call and a callback to associate the rxrpc call with the kernel service's side of the ID. (4) Discard the preallocation when the socket is closed. (5) Temporarily bump the refcount on the call allocated in rxrpc_incoming_call() so that rxrpc_release_call() can ditch the preallocation ref on service calls unconditionally. This will no longer be necessary once the preallocation is used. Note that this does not yet control the number of active service calls on a client - that will come in a later patch. A future development would be to provide a setsockopt() call that allows a userspace server to manually charge the preallocation buffer. This would allow user call IDs to be provided in advance and the awkward manual accept stage to be bypassed. Signed-off-by: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com>
