Subject: [PATCH] ACPI: OSL: Use rwlock instead of RCU for memory management

The ACPI OS layer uses RCU to protect the list of ACPI memory
mappings from being walked while it is updated.  Among other
situations, that list can be walked in non-NMI interrupt context,
so using a sleeping lock to protect it is not an option.

However, performance issues related to the RCU usage in there
appear, as described by Dan Williams:

"Recently a performance problem was reported for a process invoking
a non-trival ASL program. The method call in this case ends up
repetitively triggering a call path like:

    acpi_ex_store
    acpi_ex_store_object_to_node
    acpi_ex_write_data_to_field
    acpi_ex_insert_into_field
    acpi_ex_write_with_update_rule
    acpi_ex_field_datum_io
    acpi_ex_access_region
    acpi_ev_address_space_dispatch
    acpi_ex_system_memory_space_handler
    acpi_os_map_cleanup.part.14
    _synchronize_rcu_expedited.constprop.89
    schedule

The end result of frequent synchronize_rcu_expedited() invocation is
tiny sub-millisecond spurts of execution where the scheduler freely
migrates this apparently sleepy task. The overhead of frequent
scheduler invocation multiplies the execution time by a factor
of 2-3X."

In order to avoid these issues, replace the RCU in the ACPI OS
layer by an rwlock.

That rwlock should not be frequently contended, so the performance
impact of it is not expected to be significant.

Hi Dan,

This is a possible fix for the ACPI OSL RCU-related performance issues, but
can you please arrange for the testing of it on the affected systems?

Cheers!
