A large number of I/O subsystems have at least two basic
"lists" (or queues) of transactions they manage: one for
transactions that have been accepted for processing but for which processing
has yet to begin, and one for transactions which are actively being processed
(but not done). For this reason, two cumulative time statistics are kept: wait
(pre-service) time, and run (service) time.
The kstat_queue() family of functions manage these times
based on the transitions between the driver wait queue and run queue.
should be called when a
request arrives and is placed into a pre-service state (such as just prior to
kstat_waitq_exit() should be used when a request
is removed from its pre-service state. (such as just prior to calling the
driver's start routine).
kstat_runq_enter() is also called when a request
is placed in its service state (just prior to calling the driver's start
routine, but after kstat_waitq_exit()).
is used when a request is
removed from its service state (just prior to calling
kstat_waitq_to_runq() transitions a request from
the wait queue to the run queue. This is useful wherever the driver would have
normally done a kstat_waitq_exit() followed by a call to
kstat_runq_back_to_waitq() transitions a request
from the run queue back to the wait queue. This may be necessary in some cases
(write throttling is an example).
The kstat_queue() family of functions can be called from user or kernel
These transitions must be protected by holding the kstat's
ks_lock, and must be completely accurate (all transitions are
recorded). Forgetting a transition may, for example, make an idle disk appear
