bridge: fdb: rearrange net_bridge_fdb_entry
While looking into fixing the local entries scalability issue I noticed that the structure is badly arranged because vlan_id would fall in a second cache line while keeping rcu which is used only when deleting in the first, so re-arrange the structure and push rcu to the end so we can get 16 bytes which can be used for other fields (by pushing rcu fully in the second 64 byte chunk). With this change all the core necessary information when doing fdb lookups will be available in a single cache line. pahole before (note vlan_id): struct net_bridge_fdb_entry { struct hlist_node hlist; /* 0 16 */ struct net_bridge_port * dst; /* 16 8 */ struct callback_head rcu; /* 24 16 */ long unsigned int updated; /* 40 8 */ long unsigned int used; /* 48 8 */ mac_addr addr; /* 56 6 */ unsigned char is_local:1; /* 62: 7 1 */ unsigned char is_static:1; /* 62: 6 1 */ unsigned char added_by_user:1; /* 62: 5 1 */ unsigned char added_by_external_learn:1; /* 62: 4 1 */ /* XXX 4 bits hole, try to pack */ /* XXX 1 byte hole, try to pack */ /* --- cacheline 1 boundary (64 bytes) --- */ __u16 vlan_id; /* 64 2 */ /* size: 72, cachelines: 2, members: 11 */ /* sum members: 65, holes: 1, sum holes: 1 */ /* bit holes: 1, sum bit holes: 4 bits */ /* padding: 6 */ /* last cacheline: 8 bytes */ } pahole after (note vlan_id): struct net_bridge_fdb_entry { struct hlist_node hlist; /* 0 16 */ struct net_bridge_port * dst; /* 16 8 */ long unsigned int updated; /* 24 8 */ long unsigned int used; /* 32 8 */ mac_addr addr; /* 40 6 */ __u16 vlan_id; /* 46 2 */ unsigned char is_local:1; /* 48: 7 1 */ unsigned char is_static:1; /* 48: 6 1 */ unsigned char added_by_user:1; /* 48: 5 1 */ unsigned char added_by_external_learn:1; /* 48: 4 1 */ /* XXX 4 bits hole, try to pack */ /* XXX 7 bytes hole, try to pack */ struct callback_head rcu; /* 56 16 */ /* --- cacheline 1 boundary (64 bytes) was 8 bytes ago --- */ /* size: 72, cachelines: 2, members: 11 */ /* sum members: 65, holes: 1, sum holes: 7 */ /* bit holes: 1, sum bit holes: 4 bits */ /* last cacheline: 8 bytes */ } Signed-off-by: Nikolay Aleksandrov <nikolay@cumulusnetworks.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
