Merge branch 'x86-asm-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip
Pull x86 asm updates from Ingo Molnar: - Introduce the ORC unwinder, which can be enabled via CONFIG_ORC_UNWINDER=y. The ORC unwinder is a lightweight, Linux kernel specific debuginfo implementation, which aims to be DWARF done right for unwinding. Objtool is used to generate the ORC unwinder tables during build, so the data format is flexible and kernel internal: there's no dependency on debuginfo created by an external toolchain. The ORC unwinder is almost two orders of magnitude faster than the (out of tree) DWARF unwinder - which is important for perf call graph profiling. It is also significantly simpler and is coded defensively: there has not been a single ORC related kernel crash so far, even with early versions. (knock on wood!) But the main advantage is that enabling the ORC unwinder allows CONFIG_FRAME_POINTERS to be turned off - which speeds up the kernel measurably: With frame pointers disabled, GCC does not have to add frame pointer instrumentation code to every function in the kernel. The kernel's .text size decreases by about 3.2%, resulting in better cache utilization and fewer instructions executed, resulting in a broad kernel-wide speedup. Average speedup of system calls should be roughly in the 1-3% range - measurements by Mel Gorman [1] have shown a speedup of 5-10% for some function execution intense workloads. The main cost of the unwinder is that the unwinder data has to be stored in RAM: the memory cost is 2-4MB of RAM, depending on kernel config - which is a modest cost on modern x86 systems. Given how young the ORC unwinder code is it's not enabled by default - but given the performance advantages the plan is to eventually make it the default unwinder on x86. See Documentation/x86/orc-unwinder.txt for more details. - Remove lguest support: its intended role was that of a temporary proof of concept for virtualization, plus its removal will enable the reduction (removal) of the paravirt API as well, so Rusty agreed to its removal.
