[PATCH 1/2] drm/i915: signal first fence from irq handler if complete

Chris Wilson chris at chris-wilson.co.uk
Thu Feb 23 22:20:23 UTC 2017


As execlists and other non-semaphore multi-engine devices coordinate
between engines using interrupts, we can shave off a few 10s of
microsecond of scheduling latency by doing the fence signaling from the
interrupt as opposed to a RT kthread. (Realistically the delay adds
about 1% to an individual cross-engine workload.) We only signal the
first fence in order to limit the amount of work we move into the
interrupt handler. We also have to remember that our breadcrumbs may be
unordered with respect to the interrupt and so we still require the
waiter process to perform some heavyweight coherency fixups, as well as
traversing the tree of waiters.
