[PATCH v3 0/3] thread-pool: fix performance regression
Posted by Paolo Bonzini 2 days, 6 hours ago
Together, these two patches fix the performance regression induced by
QemuSemaphore; individually they don't though.

The third patch is a small cleanup on top, that was enabled by the
recent introduction of min_threads/max_threads knobs for the
thread pool.

6.2:
   iops        : min=58051, max=62260, avg=60282.57, stdev=1081.18, samples=30
    clat percentiles (usec):   1.00th=[  490],   99.99th=[  775]
   iops        : min=59401, max=61290, avg=60651.27, stdev=468.24, samples=30
    clat percentiles (usec):   1.00th=[  490],   99.99th=[  717]
   iops        : min=59583, max=60816, avg=60353.43, stdev=282.69, samples=30
