[PATCH 4.20 011/352] genirq/affinity: Spread IRQs to all available NUMA nodes

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Mon Feb 11 2019 - 11:12:46 EST

4.20-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


[ Upstream commit b82592199032bf7c778f861b936287e37ebc9f62 ]

If the number of NUMA nodes exceeds the number of MSI/MSI-X interrupts
which are allocated for a device, the interrupt affinity spreading code
fails to spread them across all nodes.

The reason is, that the spreading code starts from node 0 and continues up
to the number of interrupts requested for allocation. This leaves the nodes
past the last interrupt unused.

This results in interrupt concentration on the first nodes which violates
the assumption of the block layer that all nodes are covered evenly. As a
consequence the NUMA nodes above the number of interrupts are all assigned
to hardware queue 0 and therefore NUMA node 0, which results in bad
performance and has CPU hotplug implications, because queue 0 gets shut
down when the last CPU of node 0 is offlined.

Go over all NUMA nodes and assign them round-robin to all requested
interrupts to solve this.
