    benchmarks/gem_wsim: Command submission workload simulator · 054eb1ab
    Tvrtko Ursulin authored
    Tool which emits batch buffers to engines with configurable
    sequences, durations, contexts, dependencies and userspace waits.
    
    Unfinished but shows promise so sending out for early feedback.
    
    v2:
     * Load workload descriptors from files. (also -w)
     * Help text.
     * Calibration control if needed. (-t)
     * NORELOC | LUT to eb flags.
     * Added sample workload to wsim/workload1.
    
    v3:
     * Multiple parallel different workloads (-w -w ...).
     * Multi-context workloads.
     * Variable (random) batch length.
     * Load balancing (round robin and queue depth estimation).
     * Workloads delays and explicit sync steps.
     * Workload frequency (period) control.
    
    v4:
     * Fixed queue-depth estimation by creating separate batches
       per engine when qd load balancing is on.
     * Dropped separate -s cmd line option. It can turn itself on
       automatically when needed.
     * Keep a single status page and lie about the write hazard
       as suggested by Chris.
     * Use batch_start_offset for controlling the batch duration.
       (Chris)
     * Set status page object cache level. (Chris)
     * Moved workload description to a README.
     * Tidied example workloads.
     * Some other cleanups and refactorings.
    
    v5:
     * Master and background workloads (-W / -w).
     * Single batch per step is enough even when balancing. (Chris)
     * Use hars_petruska_f54_1_random IGT functions and see to zero
       at start. (Chris)
     * Use WC cache domain when WC mapping. (Chris)
     * Keep seqnos 64-bytes apart in the status page. (Chris)
     * Add workload throttling and queue-depth throttling commands.
       (Chris)
    
    v6:
     * Added two more workloads.
     * Merged RT balancer from Chris.
    
    v7:
     * Merged NO_RELOC patch from Chris.
     * Added missing RT balancer to help text.
    
    TODO list:
    
     * Fence support.
     * Batch buffer caching (re-use pool).
     * Better error handling.
     * Less 1980's workload parsing.
     * More workloads.
     * Threads?
     * ... ?
