8 years agotipc: Allow receiving into iovec containing multiple entries
Allan Stephens [Mon, 21 Feb 2011 14:45:40 +0000]
tipc: Allow receiving into iovec containing multiple entries

Enhances TIPC's socket receive routines to support iovec structures
containing more than a single entry. This change leverages existing
sk_buff routines to do most of the work; the only significant change
to TIPC itself is that an sk_buff now records how much data has been
already consumed as an numeric offset, rather than as a pointer to
the first unread data byte.

ixgbe: add support for VF Transmit rate limit using iproute2

Implemented ixgbe_ndo_set_vf_bw function which is being used by iproute2
tool. In addition, updated ixgbe_ndo_get_vf_config function to show the
actual rate limit to the user.

The rate limitation can be configured only when the link is up and the
link speed is 10Gb.
The rate limit value can be 0 or ranged between 11 and actual link
speed measured in Mbps. A value of '0' disables the rate limit for
this specific VF.

iproute2 usage will be 'ip link set ethX vf Y rate Z'.
After the command is made, the rate will be changed instantly.
To view the current rate limit, use 'ip link show ethX'.

The rates will be zeroed only upon driver reload or a link speed change.

This feature is being supported by 82599 and X540 devices.

John Fastabend [Tue, 8 Mar 2011 03:44:52 +0000]
ixgbe: DCB, use multiple Tx rings per traffic class

This enables multiple {Tx|Rx} rings per traffic class while in DCB
mode. In order to get this working as expected the tc_to_tx net
device mapping is configured as well as the prio_tc_map.

skb priorities are mapped across a range of queue pairs to get
a distribution per traffic class. The maximum number of
queue pairs used while in DCB mode is capped at 64. The hardware
max is actually 128 queues but 64 is sufficient for now and
allocating more seemed a bit excessive. It is easy enough to
increase the cap later if need be.

To get the 802.1Q priority tags inserted correctly ixgbe was
previously using the skb queue_mapping field to directly set
the 802.1Q priority. This no longer works because we have removed
the 1:1 mapping between queues and traffic class. Each ring
is aligned with an 802.1Qaz traffic class so here we add an
extra field to the ring struct to identify the 802.1Q traffic
class. This uses an extra byte of the ixgbe_ring struct
fortunately there was a 2byte hole,

struct ixgbe_ring {
        void *                     desc;                 /*     0     8 */
        struct device *            dev;                  /*     8     8 */
        struct net_device *        netdev;               /*    16     8 */
        union {
                struct ixgbe_tx_buffer * tx_buffer_info; /*           8 */
                struct ixgbe_rx_buffer * rx_buffer_info; /*           8 */
        };                                               /*    24     8 */
        long unsigned int          state;                /*    32     8 */
        u8                         atr_sample_rate;      /*    40     1 */
        u8                         atr_count;            /*    41     1 */
        u16                        count;                /*    42     2 */
        u16                        rx_buf_len;           /*    44     2 */
        u16                        next_to_use;          /*    46     2 */
        u16                        next_to_clean;        /*    48     2 */
        u8                         queue_index;          /*    50     1 */
        u8                         reg_idx;              /*    51     1 */
        u16                        work_limit;           /*    52     2 */

        /* XXX 2 bytes hole, try to pack */

        u8 *                       tail;                 /*    56     8 */
        /* --- cacheline 1 boundary (64 bytes) --- */

Now we can set the VLAN priority directly and it will be
correct. User space can indicate the 802.1Qaz priority
using the SO_PRIORITY setsocket() option and QOS layer will
steer the skb to the correct rings. Additionally using
the multiq qdisc with a queue_mapping action works as
well.

ixgbe: DCB, implement ieee_setapp dcbnl ops

Implement ieee_setapp dcbnl ops in ixgbe. This is required
to setup FCoE which requires dedicated resources. If the
app data is not for FCoE then no action is taken in ixgbe
except to add it to the dcb_app_list.

8 years agoixgbe: DCB, implement capabilities flags
John Fastabend [Tue, 1 Mar 2011 05:25:35 +0000]
ixgbe: DCB, implement capabilities flags

This implements dcbnl get and set capabilities ops. The
devices supported by ixgbe can be configured to run in
IEEE or CEE modes but not both.

With the DCBX set capabilities bit we add an explicit
signal that must be used to toggle between these modes.
This patch adds logic to fail the CEE command set_hw_all()
which programs the device with a CEE configuration if
the CEE caps bit is not set. Similarly, IEEE set
commands will fail if the IEEE caps bit is not set. We
allow most CEE config set commands to occur because they
do not touch the hardware until set_hw_all() is called.

The one exception to the above is the {set|get}app routines.
These must always be protected by caps bits to ensure
side effects do not corrupt the current configured mode.

By requiring the caps bit to be set correctly we can
maintain a consistent configuration in the hardware
for CEE or IEEE modes and prevent partial hardware
configurations that may occur if user space does
not send a complete IEEE or CEE configurations.

It is expected that user space will signal a DCBX mode
before programming device.

server$ df -i /export

the df's will show that the inode is not freed on the filesystem until
the last step, when it could have been freed after killing the client's
tail -f. On-disk data won't be deallocated either, leading to possible
spurious ENOSPC.

This occurs because when the client does the close, it arrives in a
compound with a putfh and a close, processed like:

- putfh: look up the filehandle.  The only alias found for the
  inode will be DCACHE_UNHASHED alias referenced by the filp
  this, so it creates a new DCACHE_DISCONECTED dentry and
  returns that instead.
- close: closes the existing filp, which is destroyed
  immediately by dput() since it's DCACHE_UNHASHED.
- end of the compound: release the reference
  to the current filehandle, and dput() the new
  DCACHE_DISCONECTED dentry, which gets put on the
  unused list instead of being destroyed immediately.

Nick Piggin suggested fixing this by allowing d_obtain_alias to return
the unhashed dentry that is referenced by the filp, instead of making it
create a new dentry.

Leave __d_find_alias() alone to avoid changing behavior of other
callers.

Also nfsd doesn't need all the checks of __d_find_alias(); any dentry,
hashed or unhashed, disconnected or not, should work.

David S. Miller [Thu, 10 Mar 2011 03:55:25 +0000]
ipv6: Don't create clones of host routes.

Addresses https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=29252
Addresses https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=30462

In commit d80bc0fd262ef840ed4e82593ad6416fa1ba3fc4 ("ipv6: Always
clone offlink routes.") we forced the kernel to always clone offlink
routes.

The reason we do that is to make sure we never bind an inetpeer to a
prefixed route.

The logic turned on here has existed in the tree for many years,
but was always off due to a protecting CPP define.  So perhaps
it's no surprise that there is a logic bug here.

The problem is that we canot clone a route that is already a
host route (ie. has DST_HOST set).  Because if we do, an identical
entry already exists in the routing tree and therefore the
ip6_rt_ins() call is going to fail.

This sets off a series of failures and high cpu usage, because when
ip6_rt_ins() fails we loop retrying this operation a few times in
order to handle a race between two threads trying to clone and insert
the same host route at the same time.

Fix this by simply using the route as-is when DST_HOST is set.
