Yves Orton [Sun, 11 May 2014 10:37:33 +0000 (12:37 +0200)]
Implement "max waste" thresholds to avoid problems with COW and deliberately overallocated pvs

COW does not play nicely with "preallocate" algorithms.

More specifically code like sv_gets() wants to preallocate a large
buffer into $_ for performance reasons.

Prior to COW this was just fine. When someone assigned $_ to a
less volatile variable only the used portion of the buffer was copied,
and the extended buffer would be reused by sv_gets() and all was well.

With COW however this process is foiled. The preallocated buffer
get shared, and then when $_ is updated the buffer is dropped from $_,
leaving the other SV holding ownership of the overallocated buffer,
and causing sv_gets() to allocate a new buffer entirely. This process
would then repeat consuming time and lots of memory.

This patch introduces a "wastage" check to COW. When decided if we
should COW a string we look at the ratio and difference of SvCUR(sv)
and SvLEN(sv), which represent the "actual string length" and the
"allocated string length". When the difference exceeds a hard threshold,
or when the ration exceeds a designated factor then we do not COW.

This means that strings with large overallocations are not COWed.
Exactly how this works out in practice, where SvGROW() *always*
overallocates, is an open question.

See: https://rt.perl.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=121796

This patch also slightly tweaks SvGROW() not to do roundup on the first
allocation of the pv. Odds are good that the initial request realy does
want exactly what they expected. (SvGROW contrary to what the name
suggests is used for bother *extended* the size of a pv, and
initializing it the first time.)

RT #121721.

A subroutine call like &foo; pushes a SUB context with the savearray field
unassigned, and with CxHASARGS() false. Most of the core knows not to use
this field without CxHASARGS() being true: except for Perl_cx_dup(),

my_plvarsp nulling and PERL_GLOBAL_STRUCT_PRIVATE

With PERL_GLOBAL_STRUCT_PRIVATE, all "global" vars are in a malloc()d
structure pointed to by the static var my_plvarsp. At exit, this struct is
freed and my_plvarsp is set to NULL.

My previous commit c1181d2b skipped the free if PL_veto_cleanup is set
(as it would be if other threads are still running for example), but
still left my_plvarsp getting set to NULL. Thus other threads could still
deref a null pointer if they accessed a "global" var just as the main
thread was exiting.

This commit makes the veto skip the NULLing in addition to the freeing.

This commit is quite late into the code freeze, but it's a follow-up to the
