Patch series "SUNRPC consumer for the bulk page allocator"

This patch set and the measurements below are based on yesterday's
bulk allocator series:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/mel/linux.git mm-bulk-rebase-v5r9

The patches change SUNRPC to invoke the array-based bulk allocator
instead of alloc_page().

The micro-benchmark results are promising. I ran a mixture of 256KB
reads and writes over NFSv3. The server's kernel is built with KASAN
enabled, so the comparison is exaggerated but I believe it is still

I instrumented svc_recv() to measure the latency of each call to
svc_alloc_arg() and report it via a trace point. The following
results are averages across the trace events.

Single page: 25.007 us per call over 532,571 calls
Bulk list:    6.258 us per call over 517,034 calls
Bulk array:   4.590 us per call over 517,442 calls

This patch (of 2)


I'm about to use the loop variable @i for something else.

As far as the "i++" is concerned, that is a post-increment. The
value of @i is not used subsequently, so the increment operator
is unnecessary and can be removed.

Also note that nfsd_read_actor() was renamed nfsd_splice_actor()
by commit cf8208d0eabd ("sendfile: convert nfsd to
