Commit Message

SDHCI changed from using a tasklet to finish requests, to using an IRQ
thread i.e. commit c07a48c2651965 ("mmc: sdhci: Remove finish_tasklet").
Because this increased the latency to complete requests, a preparatory
change was made to complete the request from the IRQ handler if
possible i.e. commit 19d2f695f4e827 ("mmc: sdhci: Call mmc_request_done()
from IRQ handler if possible").  That alleviated the situation for MMC
block devices because the MMC block driver makes use of mmc_pre_req()
and mmc_post_req() so that successful requests are completed in the IRQ
handler and any DMA unmapping is handled separately in mmc_post_req().
However SDIO was still affected, and an example has been reported with
up to 20% degradation in performance.

Looking at SDIO I/O helper functions, sdio_io_rw_ext_helper() appeared
to be a possible candidate for making use of asynchronous requests
within its I/O loops, but analysis revealed that these loops almost
never iterate more than once, so the complexity of the change would not
be warrented.

Instead, mmc_pre_req() and mmc_post_req() are added before and after I/O
submission (mmc_wait_for_req) in mmc_io_rw_extended().  This still has
the potential benefit of reducing the duration of interrupt handlers, as
well as addressing the latency issue for SDHCI.  It also seems a more
reasonable solution than forcing drivers to do everything in the IRQ
handler.

Briljant!

So, this should mean that other host drivers that use threaded IRQ
handlers could benefit as well. It would certainly be interesting to
hear from other tests about this.

Applied for fixes and by adding a stable tag, thanks!

Kind regards
