Subject[PATCH wq/for-3.9] workqueue: make get_work_pool_id() cheaper
From: Lai Jiangshan <>

get_work_pool_id() currently first obtains pool using get_work_pool()
and then return pool->id. For an off-queue work item, this involves
obtaining pool ID from worker->data, performing idr_find() to find the
matching pool and then returning its pool->id which of course is the
same as the one which went into idr_find().

Just open code WORK_STRUCT_CWQ case and directly return pool ID from

tj: The original patch dropped on-queue work item handling and renamed
the function to offq_work_pool_id(). There isn't much benefit in
doing so. Handling it only requires a single if() and we need at
least BUG_ON(), which is also a branch, even if we drop on-queue
handling. Open code WORK_STRUCT_CWQ case and keep the function in
line with get_work_pool(). Rewrote the description.
