From: Thomas Hellstrom <thellstrom@vmware.com>

Using huge page-table entries require that the start of a buffer object
is huge page size aligned. So introduce a ttm_bo_man_get_node_huge()
function that attempts to accomplish this for allocations that are larger
than the huge page size, and provide a new range-manager instance that
uses that function.

I still don't think that this is a good idea.

The driver/userspace should just use a proper alignment if it wants to 
use huge pages.

Again, can you elaborate with some specific concerns?

There are drawbacks with this approach. The TTM alignment is a hard 
constraint. Assume that you want to fit a 1GB buffer object into limited 
VRAM space, and _if possible_ use PUD size huge pages. Let's say there 
is 1GB available, but not 1GB aligned. The proper alignment approach 
would fail and possibly start to evict stuff from VRAM just to be able 
to accomodate the PUD alignment. That's bad. The approach I suggest 
would instead fall back to PMD alignment and use 2MB page table entries 
if possible, and as a last resort use 4K page table entries.

Or do I misunderstand how you envision enforcing the alignment?

Thanks,

Thomas

You seems to be seeing PUD as something optional.

And exactly that sounds like a bad idea to me.

Using 1GB alignment is indeed unrealistic in most cases, but for 2MB 
alignment we should really start to evict BOs.

Otherwise the address space can become fragmented and we won't be able 
de-fragment it in any way.

Additional to that 2MB pages is becoming mandatory for some hardware 
features. E.g. scanning out of system memory won't be possible with 4k 
pages in the future.

Christian.

Ah, I see, Yeah that's the THP tradeoff between fragmentation and 
memory-usage. From my point of view, it's not self-evident that either 
approach is the best one, but the nice thing with the suggested code is 
that you can view it as an optional helper. For example, to avoid 
fragmentation and have a high huge-page hit ratio for 2MB pages, You'd 
either inflate the buffer object size to be 2MB aligned, which would 
affect also system memory, or you'd set the TTM memory alignment to 2MB. 
If in addition you'd like "soft" (non-evicting) alignment also for 1GB 
pages, you'd also hook up the new range manager. I figure different 
drivers would want to use different strategies.

In any case, vmwgfx would, due to its very limited VRAM size, want to 
use the "soft" alignment provided by this patch, but if you don't see 
any other drivers wanting that, I could definitely move it to vmwgfx.

Ok, let's do it this way then. Both amdgpu and well as nouveau have 
specialized allocators anyway and I don't see the need for this in radeon.
