Revert "crypto: caam - get rid of tasklet"
This reverts commit 66d2e202. Quoting from Russell's findings: https://email@example.com/msg21136.html [quote] Okay, I've re-tested, using a different way of measuring, because using openssl speed is impractical for off-loaded engines. I've decided to use this way to measure the performance: dd if=/dev/zero bs=1048576 count=128 | /usr/bin/time openssl dgst -md5 For the threaded IRQs case gives: 0.05user 2.74system 0:05.30elapsed 52%CPU (0avgtext+0avgdata 2400maxresident)k 0.06user 2.52system 0:05.18elapsed 49%CPU (0avgtext+0avgdata 2404maxresident)k 0.12user 2.60system 0:05.61elapsed 48%CPU (0avgtext+0avgdata 2460maxresident)k => 5.36s => 25.0MB/s and the tasklet case: 0.08user 2.53system 0:04.83elapsed 54%CPU (0avgtext+0avgdata 2468maxresident)k 0.09user 2.47system 0:05.16elapsed 49%CPU (0avgtext+0avgdata 2368maxresident)k 0.10user 2.51system 0:04.87elapsed 53%CPU (0avgtext+0avgdata 2460maxresident)k => 4.95 => 27.1MB/s which corresponds to an 8% slowdown for the threaded IRQ case. So, tasklets are indeed faster than threaded IRQs. [...] I think I've proven from the above that this patch needs to be reverted due to the performance regression, and that there _is_ most definitely a deterimental effect of switching from tasklets to threaded IRQs.
