[Xen-devel] [RFC PATCH v1 00/16] xen: sched: implement core-scheduling


As anticipated here:

Here's a preliminary version of my work, trying to implement
core-scheduling in Xen.

First of all, this deals with Credit1 only. I have patches for Credit2,
and I've been working on having them ready by today, but I could not
defeat the latest bugs. :-/
I'll post them when back from vacation. Just let me anticipate, that
doing something like this in Credit2, is a lot simpler than what you
see here for Credit1.

Even these patches that I'm posting are not perfect, and In fact there
are some TODOs and XXXs --both in the changelogs and in the code.

They give me a system that boots, where I can do basic stuff (like
playing with dom0, creating guests, etc), and where the constraint of
only scheduling vcpus from one domain at a time on pcpus that are part
of the same core is, as far as I've seen, respected.

There are still cases where the behavior is unideal, e.g., we could
make a better use of some of the cores which are, some of the times,
left idle.

There are git branches here:

Any comment is more than welcome.

      xen: Credit1: count runnable vcpus, not running ones
      xen: Credit1: always steal from pcpus with runnable but not running vcpus
      xen: Credit1: do not always tickle an idle pcpu
      xen: sched: make the logic for tracking idle core generic.
      xen: Credit1: track fully idle cores.
      xen: Credit1: check for fully idle cores when tickling
      xen: Credit1: reorg __runq_tickle() code a bit.
      xen: Credit1: reorg csched_schedule() code a bit.
      xen: Credit1: SMT-aware domain co-scheduling parameter and data structs
      xen: Credit1: support sched_smt_cosched in csched_schedule()
      xen: Credit1: support sched_smt_cosched in _csched_cpu_pick()
      xen: Credit1: support sched_smt_cosched in csched_runq_steal().
      xen: Credit1: sched_smt_cosched support in __csched_vcpu_is_migrateable().
      xen: Credit1: sched_smt_cosched support in __runq_tickle() for pinned 
      xen: Credit1: sched_smt_cosched support in __runq_tickle().
