[PATCH 13/26] drm/i915: Priority boost for waiting clients

Chris Wilson chris at chris-wilson.co.uk
Wed Aug 8 19:54:15 UTC 2018


Latency is in the eye of the beholder. In the case where a client stops
and waits for the gpu, give that request chain a small priority boost
(not so that it overtakes higher priority clients, to preserve the
external ordering) so that ideally the wait completes earlier.

Testcase: igt/gem_sync/switch-default
