      Remove source_win_handle from GET-like RMA packets. · 80a71e11
      Xin Zhao authored
      
      
      For GET-like RMA packets and response packets (GACC,
      GET, FOP, CAS, GACC_RESP, GET_RESP, FOP_RESP, CAS_RESP),
      originally we carry source_win_handle in packet struct
      in order to locate window handle on origin side in the
      packet handler of response packets. However, this is
      not necessary because source_win_handle can be stored
      in the request on the origin side. This patch delete
      source_win_handle from those packets to reduce the size
      of packet union.

      Change argument of function finish_op_on_target. · 1b30ab19
      Xin Zhao authored
      
      
      In this patch, we replace one argument of function
      finish_op_on_target, "packet(op) type", with "has_response_data".
      Since finish_op_on_target does not care what specific
      packet(op) type it is processing on, but only cares
      about if the current op has response data (like GET/GACC),
      changing the argument in this way can simplify the
      code by avoiding acquiring packet(op) type everytime
      before calling finish_op_on_target.

      Rewrite code of piggybacking IMMED data with RMA packets. · de9d0f21
      Xin Zhao authored
      
      
      Originally we add "immed_data" and "immed_len" areas to RMA packets,
      in order to piggyback small amount of data with packet header to
      reduce number of packets (Note that "immed_len" is necessary when
      the piggybacked data is not the entire data). However, those areas
      potentially increase the packet union size and worsen the two-sided
      communication. This patch fixes this issue.
      
      In this patch, we remove "immed_data" and "immed_len" from normal
      "MPIDI_CH3_Pkt_XXX_t" operation type (e.g. MPIDI_CH3_Pkt_put_t), and
      we introduce new "MPIDI_CH3_Pkt_XXX_immed_t" packt type for each
      operation (e.g. MPIDI_CH3_Pkt_put_immed_t).
      
      "MPIDI_CH3_Pkt_XXX_immed_t" is used when (1) both origin and target
      are basic datatypes, AND, (2) the data to be sent can be entirely fit
      into the header. By doing this, "MPIDI_CH3_Pkt_XXX_immed_t" needs
      "immed_data" area but can drop "immed_len" area. Also, since it only
      works with basic target datatype, it can drop "dataloop_size" area
      as well. All operations that do not satisfy (1) or (2) will use
      normal "MPIDI_CH3_Pkt_XXX_t" type.
      
      Originally we always piggyback FOP data into the packet header,
      which makes the packet size too large. In this patch we split the
      FOP operaton into IMMED packets and normal packets.
      
      Because CAS only work with 2 basic datatype and non-complex
      elements, the data amount is relatively small, we always piggyback
      the data with packet header and only use "MPIDI_CH3_Pkt_XXX_immed_t"
      packet type for CAS.

      Remove lock_type and origin_rank areas from RMA packet. · 81e2b274
      Xin Zhao authored
      
      
      Originally we added lock_type and origin_rank areas
      in RMA packet, in order to piggyback passive lock request
      with RMA operations. However, those areas potentially
      enlarged the packet union size, and actually they are
      not necessary and can be completetly avoided.
      
      "Lock_type" is used to remember what types of lock (shared or
      exclusive) the origin wants to acquire on the target. To remove
      it from RMA packet, we use flags (already exists in RMA packet)
      to remember such information.
      
      "Origin_rank" is used to remember which origin has sent lock
      request to the target, so that when the lock is granted to this
      origin later, the target can send ack to that origin. Actually
      the target does not need to store origin_rank but can only store
      origin_vc, which is known from progress engine on target side.
      Therefore, we can completely remove origin_rank from RMA packet.

      Rewrite code of passive lock control messages. · 0542e304
      Xin Zhao authored
      
      
      1. Piggyback LOCK request with first IMMED operation.
      
      When we see an IMMED operation, we can always piggyback
      LOCK request with that operation to reduce one sync
      message of single LOCK request. When packet header of
      that operation is received on target, we will try to
      acquire the lock and perform that operation. The target
      either piggybacks LOCK_GRANTED message with the response
      packet (if available), or sends a single LOCK_GRANTED
      message back to origin.
      
      2. Rewrite code of manage lock queue.
      
      When the lock request cannot be satisfied on target,
      we need to buffer that lock request on target. All we
      need to do is enqueuing the packet header, which contains
      all information we need after lock is granted. When
      the current lock is released, the runtime will goes
      over the lock queue and grant the lock to the next
      available request. After lock is granted, the runtime
      just trigger the packet handler for the second time.
      
      3. Release lock on target side if piggybacking with UNLOCK.
      
      If there are active-message operations to be issued,
      we piggyback a UNLOCK flag with the last operation.
      When the target recieves it, it will release the current
      lock and grant the lock to the next process.

      Add IMMED area in packet header. · e8d4c6d5

      We add a IMMED data area (16 bytes by default) in
      packet header which will contains as much origin
      data as possible. If origin can put all data in
      packet header, then it no longer needs to send
      separate data packet. When target recieves the
      packet header, it will first copy data out from
      the IMMED data area. If there is still more
      data coming, it continues to receive following
      packets; if all data is included in header, then
      recieving is done.

      Detect remote completion by FLUSH / FLUSH_ACK messages. · 6578785d
      Xin Zhao authored
      
      
      When the origin wants to do a FLUSH sync, if there are
      active-message operations that are going to be issued,
      we piggback the FLUSH message with the last operation;
      if no such operations, we just send a single FLUSH packet.
      
      If the last operation is a write op (PUT, ACC) or only
      a single FLUSH packet is sent, after target recieves it,
      target will send back a single FLUSH_ACK packet;
      if the last operation contains a read action (GET, GACC, FOP,
      CAS), after target receiveds it, target will piggback a
      FLUSH_ACK flag with the response packet.
      
      After origin receives the FLUSH_ACK packet or response packet
      with FLUSH_ACK flag, it will decrement the counter which
      indicates number of outgoing sync messages (FLUSH / UNLOCK).
      When that counter reaches zero, origin can know that remote
      completion is achieved.

      Embedding packet structure into RMA operation structure. · b1685139

      the information is the same anyway, this patch just embeds a packet
      structure into the operation structure, so that we eliminate unnessary

      Bug-fix: always waiting for remote completion in Win_unlock. · c76aa786
      Xin Zhao authored
      
      
      The original implementation includes an optimization which
      allows Win_unlock for exclusive lock to return without
      waiting for remote completion. This relys on the
      assumption that window memory on target process will not
      be accessed by a third party until that target process
      finishes all RMA operations and grants the lock to other
      processes. However, this assumption is not correct if user
      uses assert MPI_MODE_NOCHECK. Consider the following code:
      
                P0                              P1           P2
          MPI_Win_lock(P1, NULL, exclusive);
          MPI_Put(X);
          MPI_Win_unlock(P1, exclusive);
          MPI_Send (P2);                                MPI_Recv(P0);
                                                        MPI_Win_lock(P1, MODE_NOCHECK, exclusive);
                                                        MPI_Get(X);
                                                        MPI_Win_unlock(P1, exclusive);
      
      Both P0 and P2 issue exclusive lock to P1, and P2 uses assert
      MPI_MODE_NOCHECK because the lock should be granted to P2 after
      synchronization between P2 and P0. However, in the original
      implementation, GET operation on P2 might not get the updated
      value since Win_unlock on P0 return without waiting for remote
      completion.
      
      In this patch we delete this optimization. In Win_free, since every
      Win_unlock guarantees the remote completion, target process no
      longer needs to do additional counting works to detect target-side
      completion, but only needs to do a global barrier.
