Subject[PATCH v2] clocksource: dw_apb_timer: add dynamic irq flag to the timer
Date
Commit d2348fb6fdc6 ("tick: Dynamically set broadcast irq affinity")
adds one execllent feature CLOCK_EVT_FEAT_DYNIRQ to let the core set the
interrupt affinity of the broadcast interrupt to the cpu which has the
earliest expiry time. This patch adds CLOCK_EVT_FEAT_DYNIRQ flag to
avoid unnecessary wakeups and IPIs when the dw_apb_timer is used as
broadcast timer.

A simple test:
~ # rm /tmp/test.sh
~ # cat > /tmp/test.sh
cat /proc/interrupts
for i in `seq 10` ; do sleep $i; done
cat /proc/interrupts
~ # chmod +x /tmp/test.sh
~ # taskset 0x2 /tmp/test.sh

without the patch:

cpu0 get 160-88=72 timer interrupts, CPU1 got 83-11=72 broadcast timer
IPIs
So, overall system got 72+72=144 wake ups and 72 broadcast timer IPIs

With the patch:

cpu0 got 69-66=3, cpu1 got 75-7=68 timer interrupts. cpu0 got 3-2=1
broadcast timer IPIs, cpu1 got 6-4=2 broadcast timer IPIs.
So, overall system got 3+68+1+2=74 wakeups and 1+2=3 broadcast timer
IPIs

This patch removes 50% wakeups and almost 100% broadcast timer IPIs!
