windowsaio: add best effort cache invalidation

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/478340/clear-file-cache-to-repeat-performance-testing/7113153#7113153
mentions that opening a file without buffering on Windows has the side
effect of flushing cached parts of the file out of RAM. Use this side
effect to do cache invalidation on non-direct jobs that are using the
windowsaio engine.

This change may make default bandwidth speeds on Windows look lower
compared to older versions of fio but this matches the behaviour of fio
on other platforms with invalidation (such as Linux) because we are
trying to avoid measuring cache reuse (unless invalidate=0 is set).

Note that cache invalidation will fail to happen if the file is also
open elsewhere. Unfortunately, we can't check whether we have exclusive
access without introducing a race where other jobs/programs fail during
open because we temporarily have exclusive access to the file.

Invalidation is done as a call from within fio_windowsaio_open_file
because invalidation fails with multiple file handles (see above) and
it's simpler than trying to use ReOpenFile (which is only available from
Windows 2003/Windows Vista onwards).

The impact of invalidation is demonstrated by the bandwidths achieved by
the following jobs running on a hard disk of an otherwise idle system
with 4GBytes of RAM:
./fio --stonewall --thread --size=128M --filename=fio.tmp --iodepth=64 \
  --bs=128k --invalidate=0 --direct=0 \
  --name=create --rw=write \
  --name=cached --rw=read --loops=2 \
  --name=invalidated --rw=read --loops=2 --invalidate=1

  explicitly set before we search through #define definitions to guess
  what platform we're targeting. The fallback can be overridden later
  (e.g. to prefer clang above other fallbacks on specific platforms).
- Add comments to explain the preferred compiler search (inspired by
  comments in QEMU's ./configure).
- Change from only checking $CC to also checking $cross_prefix before
  overriding.
- Switch from setting CC to setting cc when overriding. This fixes the
  case where cc is "gcc" but CC is "i686-w64-mingw32-gcc" on Cygwin64

If the size `bs' gets decreased while in the write(2) loop, the size

3 years agofix load_ioengine() not to support no "external:" prefix
Tomohiro Kusumi [Thu, 31 Aug 2017 20:13:07 +0000 (23:13 +0300)]
fix load_ioengine() not to support no "external:" prefix

To load ioengines, it should be done by either
 1) find the ioengine from the existing (static linked) ioengines or
 2) dlopen the path in case of external ioengine,

but not to do 2 if 1 failed, as fio doesn't expect an ioengine to be
dynamically loaded unless with "external:" prefix by design.

The current implementation (i.e. do 2 if 1 failed) happened to have
been able to load an external ioengine with below syntax without
"external:" prefix, but this is a bug rather than a feature.

(--)ioengine=./engines/skeleton_external.so

The design of the external ioengine option since below commits in 2007
 7b395ca5('Prefix external io engine loading with 'external'')
 8a7bd877('Document loading external io engines')
is to use "external:/path/to/so" syntax.

This commit fixes above bug, which also potentially avoids the case
where "/path/to/so" within the given "external:/path/to/so" happens
to match the existing name, though this is normally unlikely to happen.

Tomohiro Kusumi [Thu, 31 Aug 2017 20:13:05 +0000 (23:13 +0300)]
fix broken external ioengine option

get_engine_name() function added to support external ioengine option
via "external:" prefix in below commits in 2007 has been broken.
 7b395ca5('Prefix external io engine loading with 'external'')
 8a7bd877('Document loading external io engines')

It seems to have been broken since below commit in 2011 which made
__handle_option() strip ':' and after while parsing the option.
 c44b1ff5('Add sub-option support (sort-of) and convert libaio_userspace_reap')

Above change made fio dlopen "external" instead of the path located
after "external:", since the path had already been stripped by
__handle_option() by the time get_engine_name() was called. This commit
fixes it by adding ->ioengine_so_path pointer to keep the path while
parsing using sub-option callback.

Note that removing get_engine_name() doesn't affect non "external:"
ioengine options, as the option parser also strips while parsing.
