[PATCH v2 00/16] generic hashtable implementation

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


There are quite a few places in the kernel which implement a hashtable
in a very similar way. Instead of having implementations of a hashtable
all over the kernel, we can re-use the code.

Since it looks like all the major issues we're addressed in the RFC phase
and no major issues were raised with this patch set, I'd be happy to see
this getting merged so that work could continue on different aspects of
the hashtable. Some interesting directions include:

 - Introducing a dynamic RCU hashtable such as the one Mathieu Desnoyers
 wrote about out in the userspace RCU.

 - Replacing the rest of the the kernel structures which use the same basec
 hashtable construct to use this new interface.

 - Same as above, but for non-obvious places (for example, I'm looking into
 using the hashtable to store KVM vcpus instead of the linked list being used
 there now - this should help performance with a large amount of vcpus).


Changes since v1:

 - Added missing hash_init in rds and lockd.
 - Addressed the userns comments by Eric Biederman.
 - Ran a small test to confirm hash_32 does a good job for low key
 values (1-10000), which showed it did - this resulted in no changes to the
 code.
