Feature #14326: [PATCH] net/protocol: read directly into rbuf if it's empty
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/14326

* Author: normalperson (Eric Wong)
* Status: Open
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: naruse (Yui NARUSE)
* Target version: 
----------------------------------------
This relies on the reverted r61638 which was prematurely committed:
https://svn.ruby-lang.org/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi?view=revision&revision=61638

I guess it was luck that @rbuf worked before with UTF-8 encoding.

net/protocol: read directly into rbuf if it's empty

There's no need to allocate a temporary string when @rbuf is
empty, we can use it as the read_nonblock destination buffer to
save both allocation overhead and avoid a later memcpy.

This results in a halving user CPU time and tiny memory
reduction with the script below:

	     user     system      total        real
before   0.603333   0.539999   1.143332 (  1.143347)
       RssAnon:     5624 kB

after    0.283334   0.560000   0.843334 (  0.846072)
       RssAnon:     5592 kB

------
require 'net/http'
require 'benchmark'
s = TCPServer.new('127.0.0.1', 0)
len = 1024 * 1024 * 1024 * 2
pid = fork do
  c = s.accept
  c.readpartial(16384).clear
  c.send("HTTP/1.0 200 OK\r\nContent-Length: #{len}\r\n\r\n", Socket::MSG_MORE)
  IO.copy_stream('/dev/zero', c, len)
  c.close
end

addr = s.addr
Net::HTTP.start(addr[3], addr[1]) do |http|
  http.request_get('/') do |res|
    puts(Benchmark.measure { res.read_body(&:clear) })
  end
end
puts File.readlines("/proc/self/status").grep(/RssAnon/)[0]
Process.waitpid2(pid)
