Hi Anna-

I think these are ready for merge.

This is a series of fixes and architectural changes that should
improve robustness and result in better scalability of NFS/RDMA.

The fundamental observation is that the RPC work queues are BOUND,
thus rescheduling work in the Receive completion handler to one of
these work queues just forces it to run later on the same CPU. So
try to do more work right in the Receive completion handler to
reduce context switch overhead.

A secondary concern is that the average amount of wall-clock time
it takes to handle a single Receive completion caps the IOPS rate
(both per-xprt and per-NIC). In this patch series I've taken a few
steps to reduce that latency, and I'm looking into a few others.

This series can be fetched from:


in topic branch "nfs-for-5.3".

Changes since v2:
* Rebased on v5.2-rc5
* Changed trace points to display errors as negative values
* Used BIT() when defining trace point flag values
* Updated NFS lookup flags as well

Changes since RFC:
* Rebased on v5.2-rc4
* Clarified some patch descriptions and comments
* Addressed Anna's compiler warning in frwr_unmap_[a]sync
* Cross-ported recent xs_connect changes to xprt_rdma_connect
* Fixed several trace-event bugs
