[PATCH 01/26] drm/i915: Mark CPU cache as dirty on every transition for CPU writes

Chris Wilson chris at chris-wilson.co.uk
Sat Apr 22 10:04:55 UTC 2017


Currently, we only mark the CPU cache as dirty if we skip a clflush.
This leads to some confusion where we have to ask if the object is in
the write domain or missed a clflush. If we always mark the cache as
dirty, this becomes a much simply question to answer.

The goal remains to do as few clflushes as required and to do them as
late as possible, in the hope of deferring the work to a kthread and not
block the caller (e.g. execbuf, flips).

v2: Always call clflush before GPU execution when the cache_dirty flag
is set. This may cause some extra work on llc systems that migrate dirty
buffers back and forth - but we do try to limit that by only setting
cache_dirty at the end of the gpu sequence.
