/* This is a modified and combined version of the sched.c and
test_sched.c files shipped with FFTW 2, written to implement and
test various all-to-all communications scheduling patterns.
It is not used in FFTW 3, but I keep it around in case we ever want
to play with this again or to change algorithms. In particular, I
used it to implement and test the fill1_comm_sched routine in
transpose-pairwise.c, which allows us to create a schedule for one
process at a time and is much more compact than the FFTW 2 code.
Note that the scheduling algorithm is somewhat modified from that
of FFTW 2. Originally, I thought that one "stall" in the schedule
was unavoidable for odd numbers of processes, since this is the
case for the soccer-timetabling problem. However, because of the
self-communication step, we can use the self-communication to fill
in the stalls. (Thanks to Ralf Wildenhues for pointing this out.)
This greatly simplifies the process re-sorting algorithm. */

/* This file contains routines to compute communications schedules for
all-to-all communications (complete exchanges) that are performed
in-place. (That is, the block that processor x sends to processor
y gets replaced on processor x by a block received from processor y.)
A schedule, int **sched, is a two-dimensional array where
sched[pe][i] is the processor that pe expects to exchange a message
with on the i-th step of the exchange. sched[pe][i] == -1 for the
i after the last exchange scheduled on pe.
Here, processors (pe's, for processing elements), are numbered from
0 to npes-1.
There are a couple of constraints that a schedule should satisfy
(besides the obvious one that every processor has to communicate
with every other processor exactly once).
* First, and most importantly, there must be no deadlocks.
* Second, we would like to overlap communications as much as possible,
so that all exchanges occur in parallel. It turns out that perfect
overlap is possible for all number of processes (npes).
It turns out that this scheduling problem is actually well-studied,
and good solutions are known. The problem is known as a
"time-tabling" problem, and is specifically the problem of
scheduling a sports competition (where n teams must compete exactly
once with every other team). The problem is discussed and
algorithms are presented in:
[1] J. A. M. Schreuder, "Constructing Timetables for Sport
Competitions," Mathematical Programming Study 13, pp. 58-67 (1980).
[2] A. Schaerf, "Scheduling Sport Tournaments using Constraint
Logic Programming," Proc. of 12th Europ. Conf. on
Artif. Intell. (ECAI-96), pp. 634-639 (Budapest 1996).
http://hermes.dis.uniromal.it/~aschaerf/publications.html
(These people actually impose a lot of additional constraints that
we don't care about, so they are solving harder problems. [1] gives
a simple enough algorithm for our purposes, though.)
In the timetabling problem, N teams can all play one another in N-1
steps if N is even, and N steps if N is odd. Here, however,
there is a "self-communication" step (a team must also "play itself")
and so we can always make an optimal N-step schedule regardless of N.
However, we have to do more: for a particular processor, the
communications schedule must be sorted in ascending or descending
order of processor index. (This is necessary so that the data
coming in for the transpose does not overwrite data that will be
sent later; for that processor the incoming and outgoing blocks are
of different non-zero sizes.) Fortunately, because the schedule
is stall free, each parallel step of the schedule is independent
of every other step, and we can reorder the steps arbitrarily
to achieve any desired order on a particular process.
