Extend bench framework with ability to have benchmark-provided child argument
parser for custom benchmark-specific parameters. This makes bench generic code
modular and independent from any specific benchmark.

Also implement a set of benchmarks for new BPF ring buffer and existing perf
buffer. 5 benchmarks were implemented: 2 variations for BPF ringbuf,
3 variations for perfbuf:
  - rb-libbpf utilizes stock libbpf ring_buffer manager for reading data;
  - rb-custom implements custom ring buffer setup and reading code, to
    eliminate overheads inherent in generic libbpf code due to callback
    functions and the need to update consumer position after each consumed
    record, instead of batching updates (due to pessimistic assumption that
    user callback might take long time and thus could unnecessarily hold ring
    buffer space for too long);
  - pb-libbpf uses stock libbpf perf_buffer code with all the default
    settings; default settings are good safe defaults, but are far from
    providing highest throughput -- perf buffer allows to specify
    wakeup_events and sample_period > 1, that will cause perf code to trigger
    epoll notifications less frequently, which boosts throughput immensely;
  - pb-raw uses perf_buffer__new_raw() API to specify custom wakeup_events and
    sample_period and specifies raw sample callback, which removes some of the
    overhead in generic case;
  - pb-custom does the same setup as pb-raw, but implements custom consumer
    code eliminating all the callback overhead.

Otherwise, all benchamrks implement similar way to generate a batch of records
by using fentry/sys_getpgid BPF program, which pushes a bunch of records in
a tight loop and records number of successful and dropped samples. Each record
is a small 8-byte integer, to minimize the effect of memory copying with
bpf_perf_event_output() and bpf_ringbuf_output().

Benchmarks that have only one producer implement optional back-to-back mode,
in which record production and consumption is alternating on the same CPU.
This is the highest-throughput happy case, showing ultimate performance
achievable with either BPF ringbuf or perfbuf.

All the below scenarios are implemented in a script in
benchs/run_bench_ringbufs.sh. Tests were performed on 28-core/56-thread
Intel Xeon CPU E5-2680 v4 @ 2.40GHz CPU.

Single-producer, parallel producer

Patch

==================================
rb-libbpf            11.302 ± 0.564M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
rb-custom            8.895 ± 0.148M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
pb-libbpf            0.927 ± 0.008M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
pb-raw               9.884 ± 0.058M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
pb-custom            9.724 ± 0.068M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.001M/s)

Single producer on one CPU, consumer on another one, both running at full
speed. Curiously, rb-libbpf has higher throughput than objectively faster (due
to more lightweight consumer code path) rb-custom. It appears that faster
consumer causes kernel to send notifications more frequently, because consumer
appears to be caught up more frequently.

Stock perfbuf settings are about 10x slower, compared to pb-raw/pb-custom with
wakeup_events/sample_period set to 500. The trade-off is that with sampling,
application might not get next X events until X+1st arrives, which is not
always acceptable.

Single-producer, back-to-back mode
==================================
rb-libbpf            15.991 ± 0.456M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
rb-custom            21.646 ± 0.457M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
pb-libbpf            1.608 ± 0.040M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
pb-raw               8.866 ± 0.098M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
pb-custom            8.858 ± 0.137M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)

Here we test a back-to-back mode, which is arguably best-case scenario both
for BPF ringbuf and perfbuf, because there is no contention and for ringbuf
also no excessive notification, because consumer appears to be behind after
the first record. For ringbuf, custom consumer code clearly wins with 22 vs 16
million records per second exchanged between producer and consumer.

Perfbuf with wakeup sampling gets 5.5x throughput increase, compared to
no-sampling version. There also doesn't seem to be noticeable overhead from
generic libbpf handling code.

Perfbuf, effect of sample rate, back-to-back
============================================
sample rate 1        1.634 ± 0.023M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
sample rate 5        4.510 ± 0.082M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
sample rate 10       5.875 ± 0.085M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
sample rate 25       7.361 ± 0.150M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
sample rate 50       7.574 ± 0.559M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
sample rate 100      8.486 ± 0.274M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
sample rate 250      8.787 ± 0.183M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
sample rate 500      8.494 ± 0.732M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
sample rate 1000     8.445 ± 0.336M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
sample rate 2000     9.000 ± 0.187M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
sample rate 3000     8.684 ± 0.556M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)

This benchmark shows the effect of event sampling for perfbuf. Back-to-back
mode for highest throughput. Just doing every 5th record notification gives 3x
speed up. 250-500 appears to be the point of diminishing return, with 5.5x
speed up. Most benchmarks use 500 as the default sampling for pb-raw and
pb-custom.

Ringbuf, reserve+commit vs output, back-to-back
===============================================
reserve              22.570 ± 0.490M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
output               19.037 ± 0.429M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)

BPF ringbuf supports two sets of APIs with various usability and performance
tradeoffs: bpf_ringbuf_reserve()+bpf_ringbuf_commit() vs bpf_ringbuf_output().
This benchmark clearly shows superiority of reserve+commit approach, despite
using a small 8-byte record size.

Single-producer, consumer/producer competing on the same CPU, low batch count
=============================================================================
rb-libbpf            1.485 ± 0.015M/s (drops 1.969 ± 0.058M/s)
rb-custom            1.489 ± 0.017M/s (drops 1.910 ± 0.098M/s)
pb-libbpf            1.242 ± 0.042M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
pb-raw               1.217 ± 0.043M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
pb-custom            1.264 ± 0.023M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)

This benchmark shows one of the worst-case scenarios, in which producer and
consumer do not coordinate *and* fight for the same CPU. No batch count and
sampling settings were able to eliminate drops for ringbuffer, producer is
just too fast for consumer to keep up. Still, ringbuf and perfbuf still able
to pass through more than a million messages per second, which is more than
enough for a lot of applications.

Ringbuf, multi-producer contention, low batch count
===================================================
rb-libbpf nr_prod 1  9.559 ± 0.134M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
rb-libbpf nr_prod 2  6.542 ± 0.039M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
rb-libbpf nr_prod 3  4.444 ± 0.007M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
rb-libbpf nr_prod 4  3.764 ± 0.021M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
rb-libbpf nr_prod 8  4.147 ± 0.013M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
rb-libbpf nr_prod 12 3.652 ± 0.185M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
rb-libbpf nr_prod 16 2.338 ± 0.020M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
rb-libbpf nr_prod 20 2.055 ± 0.006M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
rb-libbpf nr_prod 24 1.961 ± 0.006M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
rb-libbpf nr_prod 28 2.136 ± 0.003M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
rb-libbpf nr_prod 32 2.069 ± 0.003M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
rb-libbpf nr_prod 36 2.177 ± 0.002M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
rb-libbpf nr_prod 40 2.323 ± 0.002M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
rb-libbpf nr_prod 44 2.274 ± 0.004M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
rb-libbpf nr_prod 48 2.069 ± 0.003M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)
rb-libbpf nr_prod 52 2.041 ± 0.004M/s (drops 0.000 ± 0.000M/s)

Ringbuf uses a very short-duration spinlock during reservation phase, to check
few invariants, increment producer count and set record header. This is the
biggest point of contention for ringbuf implementation. This benchmark
evaluates the effect of multiple competing writers on overall throughput of
a single shared ringbuffer.

Overall throughput drops by about 30% when going from single to two
highly-contended producers, losing another 30% with third producer added.
Performance drop stabilizes at around 16 producers and hovers around 2mln even
with 50+ fighting producers, which is a 4.75x drop in throughput and
a testament to a good implementation of spinlock in the kernel.

Note, that in the intended real-world scenarios, it's not expected to get even
close to such a high levels of contention. But if contention will become
a problem, there is always an option of sharding few ring buffers across a set
of CPUs.
