Series dma-buf: Performance improvements for system heap & a system-uncached implementation | expand

Hey All,
  So just wanted to resend my last revision of my patch series
of performance optimizations to the dma-buf system heap.

This series reworks the system heap to use sgtables, and then
consolidates the pagelist method from the heap-helpers into the
CMA heap. After which the heap-helpers logic is removed (as it
is unused). I'd still like to find a better way to avoid some of
the logic duplication in implementing the entire dma_buf_ops
handlers per heap. But unfortunately that code is tied somewhat
to how the buffer's memory is tracked. As more heaps show up I
think we'll have a better idea how to best share code, so for
now I think this is ok.

After this, the series introduces an optimization that
Ørjan Eide implemented for ION that avoids calling sync on
attachments that don't have a mapping.

Next, an optimization to use larger order pages for the system
heap. This change brings us closer to the current performance
of the ION allocation code (though there still is a gap due
to ION using a mix of deferred-freeing and page pools, I'll be
looking at integrating those eventually).

Finally, a reworked version of my uncached system heap
implementation I was submitting a few weeks back. Since it
duplicated a lot of the now reworked system heap code, I
realized it would be much simpler to add the functionality to
the system_heap implementation itself.

While not improving the core allocation performance, the
uncached heap allocations do result in *much* improved
performance on HiKey960 as it avoids a lot of flushing and
invalidating buffers that the cpu doesn't touch often.

Feedback on these would be great!


New in v4:
* Make sys_heap static (indirectly) Reported-by:

* Spelling fixes suggested by BrianS
* Make sys_uncached_heap static, as

* Fix wrong return value, caught by smatch

    Reported-by: Dan Carpenter <dan.carpenter@oracle.com>
* Ensure we call flush/invalidate_kernel_vmap_range() in the
  uncached cases to try to address feedback about VIVT caches
  from Christoph
* Reorder a few lines as suggested by BrianS
* Avoid holding the initial mapping for the lifetime of the buffer
  as suggested by BrianS
* Fix a unlikely race between allocate and updating the dma_mask
  that BrianS noticed.
