So harvesting events from userspace gives 15% gain. Though bench_http
is not ideal benchmark, but at least it is the part of libevent and was
easy to modify.
Worth to mention that uepoll is very sensible to CPU, e.g. the gain above
is observed on desktop "Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6820HQ CPU @ 2.70GHz", but on
"Intel(R) Xeon(R) Silver 4110 CPU @ 2.10GHz" measurements are almost the
same for both runs.
Hmm. 15% may be big in a big picture thing, but when it comes to what
is pretty much a micro-benchmark, I'm not sure how meaningful it is.
And the CPU sensitivity thing worries me. Did you check _why_ it
doesn't seem to make any difference on the Xeon 4110? Is it just
because at that point the machine has enough cores that you might as
well just sit in epoll() in the kernel and uepoll doesn't give you
much? Or is there something else going on?
