    ms/xxHash: create arch dependent 32/64-bit xxhash()
    Patch series "Currently used jhash are slow enough and replace it allow as
    to make KSM", v8.
    Speed (in kernel):
            ksm: crc32c   hash() 12081 MB/s
            ksm: xxh64    hash()  8770 MB/s
            ksm: xxh32    hash()  4529 MB/s
            ksm: jhash2   hash()  1569 MB/s
    Sioh Lee's testing (copy from other mail):
    Test platform: openstack cloud platform (NEWTON version)
    Experiment node: openstack based cloud compute node (CPU: xeon E5-2620 v3, memory 64gb)
    VM: (2 VCPU, RAM 4GB, DISK 20GB) * 4
    Linux kernel: 4.14 (latest version)
    KSM setup - sleep_millisecs: 200ms, pages_to_scan: 200
    Experiment process:
    Firstly, we turn off KSM and launch 4 VMs.  Then we turn on the KSM and
    measure the checksum computation time until full_scans become two.
    The experimental results (the experimental value is the average of the measured values)
    crc32c_intel: 1084.10ns
    crc32c (no hardware acceleration): 7012.51ns
    xxhash32: 2227.75ns
    xxhash64: 1413.16ns
    jhash2: 5128.30ns
    In summary, the result shows that crc32c_intel has advantages over all of
    the hash function used in the experiment.  (decreased by 84.54% compared
    to crc32c, 78.86% compared to jhash2, 51.33% xxhash32, 23.28% compared to
    xxhash64) the results are similar to those of Timofey.
    But, use only xxhash for now, because for using crc32c, cryptoapi must be
    initialized first - that require some tricky solution to work good in all
    - First patch implement compile time pickup of fastest implementation of
      xxhash for target platform.
    - The second patch replaces jhash2 with xxhash
    This patch (of 2):
    xxh32() - fast on both 32/64-bit platforms
    xxh64() - fast only on 64-bit platform
    Create xxhash() which will pick up the fastest version at compile time.

    Patchset description:
    ksm: Switch to xxhash hash algorithm
    xxhash shows better performance in comparison to currently
    used jhash2:
            ksm: xxh64 hash() 8770 MB/s
            ksm: xxh32 hash() 4529 MB/s
            ksm: jhash2 hash() 1569 MB/s
    Note, that algorithm module lib/xxhash.c is already in ms kernel [1/3],
    while [2-3/3] just make ksm to use it (but they also already in akpm tree).
    This should improve ksm performance in some way.
