[PATCH 10/29] drm/i915: Hold request reference for submission until retirement

Chris Wilson chris at chris-wilson.co.uk
Fri Jun 22 13:08:34 UTC 2018


Currently the async submission backends (guc and execlists) hold a extra
reference to the requests being processed as they are not serialised with
request retirement. If we instead, prevent the request being dropped
from the engine timeline until after submission has finished processing
the request, we can use a single reference held for the entire
submission process (currently, it is held only for the submission
fence).

By doing so we remove a few atomics from inside the irqoff path, on the
order of 200ns as measured by gem_syslatency, bringing the impact of
direct submission into line with the previous tasklet implementation.
The tradeoff is that as we may postpone the retirement, we have to check
for any residual requests after detecting that the engines are idle.

v2: switch-to-kernel-context needs to be cognisant of the delayed
release on the engine->timeline again.
