Low hanging lock reduction based on semi-const flags.

Authored by jeff on Wed, Nov 27, 3:42 AM.



These are pretty minor changes. COLOR is never cleared after it is set. So we can check for it before acquiring and setting. I made a mistake in my ref patch that caused us to use a write ref for the final vnode ref which is not necessary and actually was a regression. The vm_map_pmap_enter() change realistically isn't likely to improve perf but it looks more tidy this way I think.

Don't we formally need to recheck the object type here?

The indentation is wrong.

It can only have become DEAD since we must have a valid reference.

Isn't this a policy change? Now we are not accounting for swap space reserved for shared memory or tmpfs objects.

I wonder if it makes sense to just return there, regardless of the locking changes. If the object was device/sg and now it is no longer, then it probably does not make sense do any page table prefilling at all.

I suspect that this would be more important e.g. for shared read-only mapping (weird case actually).

I think that this runlock can happen before umtx_shm_object_terminated().

I think mark is right. And I may have made the same error in vm_map_copy_entry_anon().

Address review feedback. Correct a mistaken OBJ_ANON test.

Perhaps add a comment in the block above, where we recheck object->type == OBJT_DEVICE || object->type == OBJT_SG.
