mtd-utils: flash_speed: Measure read while write latencyHEADmaster
The Read While Write (RWW) feature allows to perform reads from the flash array into cache while a program (from cache) or an erase operation happens, provided that the two areas are located on different banks. The main benefit is the possible reduced latency when requesting to read a page while a much longer operation is ongoing, like a write or an erase. We can try to compare the positive impact of such a feature by enhancing the flash_speed test tool with the following test: - Measure the time taken by an eraseblock write in parallel with an eraseblock read. - Measure when the read operation ends. - Compare the two to get the latency saved with the RWW feature. To be sure the mtd_write actually starts (and acquires the necessary locks) before the mtd_read does, we use SCHED_FIFO at rather high (arbitrary) priorities, respectively 42 and 41.
