      target/file: Re-enable optional fd_buffered_io=1 operation · b32f4c7e
      Nicholas Bellinger authored
      This patch re-adds the ability to optionally run in buffered FILEIO mode
      (eg: w/o O_DSYNC) for device backends in order to once again use the
      Linux buffered cache as a write-back storage mechanism.
      
      This logic was originally dropped with mainline v3.5-rc commit:
      
      commit a4dff304
      
      
      Author: Nicholas Bellinger <nab@linux-iscsi.org>
      Date:   Wed May 30 16:25:41 2012 -0700
      
          target/file: Use O_DSYNC by default for FILEIO backends
      
      This difference with this patch is that fd_create_virtdevice() now
      forces the explicit setting of emulate_write_cache=1 when buffered FILEIO
      operation has been enabled.
      
      (v2: Switch to FDBD_HAS_BUFFERED_IO_WCE + add more detailed
           comment as requested by hch)

      Revert "sched: Improve scalability via 'CPU buddies', which withstand random perturbations" · 37407ea7
      Linus Torvalds authored
      This reverts commit 970e1789.
      
      Nikolay Ulyanitsky reported thatthe 3.6-rc5 kernel has a 15-20%
      performance drop on PostgreSQL 9.2 on his machine (running "pgbench").
      
      Borislav Petkov was able to reproduce this, and bisected it to this
      commit 970e1789
      
       ("sched: Improve scalability via 'CPU buddies' ...")
      apparently because the new single-idle-buddy model simply doesn't find
      idle CPU's to reschedule on aggressively enough.
      
      Mike Galbraith suspects that it is likely due to the user-mode spinlocks
      in PostgreSQL not reacting well to preemption, but we don't really know
      the details - I'll just revert the commit for now.
      
      There are hopefully other approaches to improve scheduler scalability
      without it causing these kinds of downsides.
