2017-08-28android: binder: Add global lru shrinker to binderSherry Yang1-14/+54
Hold on to the pages allocated and mapped for transaction buffers until the system is under memory pressure. When that happens, use linux shrinker to free pages. Without using shrinker, patch "android: binder: Move buffer out of area shared with user space" will cause a significant slow down for small transactions that fit into the first page because free list buffer header used to be inlined with buffer data. In addition to prevent the performance regression for small transactions, this patch improves the performance for transactions that take up more than one page. Modify alloc selftest to work with the shrinker change. Test: Run memory intensive applications (Chrome and Camera) to trigger shrinker callbacks. Binder frees memory as expected. Test: Run binderThroughputTest with high memory pressure option enabled. Signed-off-by: Sherry Yang <sherryy@android.com> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>
2017-08-28android: binder: Move buffer out of area shared with user spaceSherry Yang1-6/+5
Binder driver allocates buffer meta data in a region that is mapped in user space. These meta data contain pointers in the kernel. This patch allocates buffer meta data on the kernel heap that is not mapped in user space, and uses a pointer to refer to the data mapped.

2017-08-28android: binder: Add allocator selftestSherry Yang1-0/+271
binder_alloc_selftest tests that alloc_new_buf handles page allocation and deallocation properly when allocate and free buffers. The test allocates 5 buffers of various sizes to cover all possible page alignment cases, and frees the buffers using a list of exhaustive freeing order. Test: boot the device with ANDROID_BINDER_IPC_SELFTEST config option enabled. Allocator selftest passes.
