[PATCH v4 00/13] blk-mq: Reduce static requests memory footprint for shared sbitmap

From: John Garry
Date: Fri Sep 24 2021 - 04:33:36 EST

Currently a full set of static requests are allocated per hw queue per
tagset when shared sbitmap is used.

However, only tagset->queue_depth number of requests may be active at
any given time. As such, only tagset->queue_depth number of static
requests are required.

The same goes for using an IO scheduler, which allocates a full set of
static requests per hw queue per request queue.

This series changes shared sbitmap support by using a shared tags per
tagset and request queue. Ming suggested something along those lines in
v1 review. But we'll keep name "shared sbitmap" name as it is familiar. In
using a shared tags, the static rqs also become shared, reducing the
number of sets of static rqs, reducing memory usage.

Patch "blk-mq: Use shared tags for shared sbitmap support" is a bit big,
and could potentially be broken down. But then maintaining ability to
bisect becomes harder and each sub-patch would get more convoluted.

For megaraid sas driver on my 128-CPU arm64 system with 1x SATA disk, we
save approx. 300MB(!) [370MB -> 60MB]

Baseline is v5.15-rc2

Changes since v3:
- Fix transient error handling issue in 05/13
- Add Hannes RB tags (thanks!)

Changes since v2:
- Make blk_mq_clear_rq_mapping() static again
- Various function renaming for conciseness and consistency
- Add/refactor alloc/free map and rqs function
- Drop the new blk_mq_ops init_request method in favour of passing an
invalid HW queue index for shared sbitmap
- Add patch to not clear rq mapping for driver tags
- Remove blk_mq_init_bitmap_tags()
- Add some more RB tags (thanks!)

Changes since v1:
- Switch to use blk_mq_tags for shared sbitmap
- Add new blk_mq_ops init request callback
- Add some RB tags (thanks!)
