Given two pending sublists of size 2^k, they are * merged to a size-2^(k+1) list as soon as we have 2^k following elements. * * Thus, it will avoid cache thrashing as long as 3*2^k elements can * fit into the cache. Not quite as good as a fully-eager bottom-up * mergesort, but it does use 0.2*n fewer comparisons, so is faster in * the common case that everything fits into L1. * * * The merging is controlled by "count", the number of elements in the * pending lists. This is beautiully simple code, but rather subtle. * * Each time we increment "count", we set one bit (bit k) and clear * bits k-1 .. 0. Each time this happens (except the very first time * for each bit, when count increments to 2^k), we merge two lists of * size 2^k into one list of size 2^(k+1). * * This merge happens exactly when the count reaches an odd multiple of * 2^k, which is when we have 2^k elements pending in smaller lists, * so it's safe to merge away two lists of size 2^k. * * After this happens twice, we have created two lists of size 2^(k+1), * which will be merged into a list of size 2^(k+2) before we create * a third list of size 2^(k+1), so there are never more than two pending. * * The number of pending lists of size 2^k is determined by the * state of bit k of "count" plus two extra pieces of information: * - The state of bit k-1 (when k == 0, consider bit -1 always set), and * - Whether the higher-order bits are zero or non-zero (i.e. * is count >= 2^(k+1)). * There are six states we distinguish. "x" represents some arbitrary * bits, and "y" represents some arbitrary non-zero bits: * 0: 00x: 0 pending of size 2^k; x pending of sizes < 2^k * 1: 01x: 0 pending of size 2^k; 2^(k-1) + x pending of sizes < 2^k * 2: x10x: 0 pending of size 2^k; 2^k + x pending of sizes < 2^k * 3: x11x: 1 pending of size 2^k; 2^(k-1) + x pending of sizes < 2^k * 4: y00x: 1 pending of size 2^k; 2^k + x pending of sizes < 2^k * 5: y01x: 2 pending of size 2^k; 2^(k-1) + x pending of sizes < 2^k * (merge and loop back to state 2) * * We gain lists of size 2^k in the 2->3 and 4->5 transitions (because * bit k-1 is set while the more significant bits are non-zero) and * merge them away in the 5->2 transition. Note in particular that just * before the 5->2 transition, all lower-order bits are 11 (state 3), * so there is one list of each smaller size. * * When we reach the end of the input, we merge all the pending * lists, from smallest to largest. If you work through cases 2 to * 5 above, you can see that the number of elements we merge with a list * of size 2^k varies from 2^(k-1) (cases 3 and 5 when x == 0) to * 2^(k+1) - 1 (second merge of case 5 when x == 2^(k-1) - 1). */ __attribute__((nonnull(2,3))) void list_sort(void *priv, struct list_head *head, int (*cmp)(void *priv, struct list_head *a, struct list_head *b)) { struct list_head *list = head->next, *pending = NULL; size_t count = 0; /* Count of pending */ if (list == head->prev) /* Zero or one elements */ return; /* Convert to a null-terminated singly-linked list. */ head->prev->next = NULL; /* * Data structure invariants: * - All lists are singly linked and null-terminated; prev * pointers are not maintained. * - pending is a prev-linked "list of lists" of sorted * sublists awaiting further merging. * - Each of the sorted sublists is power-of-two in size. * - Sublists are sorted by size and age, smallest & newest at front. * - There are zero to two sublists of each size. * - A pair of pending sublists are merged as soon as the number * of following pending elements equals their size (i.e. * each time count reaches an odd multiple of that size). * That ensures each later final merge will be at worst 2:1. * - Each round consists of: * - Merging the two sublists selected by the highest bit * which flips when count is incremented, and * - Adding an element from the input as a size-1 sublist. */ do { size_t bits; struct list_head **tail = &pending; /* Find the least-significant clear bit in count */ for (bits = count; bits & 1; bits >>= 1) tail = &(*tail)->prev; /* Do the indicated merge */ if (likely(bits)) { struct list_head *a = *tail, *b = a->prev; a = merge(priv, (cmp_func)cmp, b, a); /* Install the merged result in place of the inputs */ a->prev = b->prev; *tail = a; } /* Move one element from input list to pending */ list->prev = pending; pending = list; list = list->next; pending->next = NULL; count++; } while (list); /* End of input; merge together all the pending lists. */ list = pending; pending = pending->prev; for (;;) { struct list_head *next = pending->prev; if (!next) break; list = merge(priv, (cmp_func)cmp, pending, list); pending = next; } /* The final merge, rebuilding prev links */ merge_final(priv, (cmp_func)cmp, head, pending, list); } EXPORT_SYMBOL
