Subject: [RFC PATCH V2 0/3] vhost: accelerate metadata access through vmap()


This series tries to access virtqueue metadata through kernel virtual
address instead of copy_user() friends since they had too much
overheads like checks, spec barriers or even hardware feature

Test shows about 24% improvement on TX PPS. It should benefit other
cases as well.

Changes from V1:
- instead of pinning pages, use MMU notifier to invalidate vmaps and
  remap duing metadata prefetch
- fix build warning on MIPS

Please review

Jason Wang (3):
  vhost: generalize adding used elem
  vhost: fine grain userspace memory accessors
  vhost: access vq metadata through kernel virtual address
