While investigating a performance issue with the F1 2017 game benchmark, we identified some bottlenecks related to how ttm and amdgpu do buffer validation and LRU handling. This ultimately lead to a major redesign of how we handle buffer migration. This talk describes process that we took to identify and fix the bottleneck and what we learned along the way.
