10 years agonet: use NLMSG_DEFAULT_SIZE in nlmsg_new() allocations
Pablo Neira Ayuso [Tue, 19 May 2009 22:27:55 +0000]
net: use NLMSG_DEFAULT_SIZE in nlmsg_new() allocations

nlmsg_new() adds the size of the netlink header to the value
that has been passed as parameter. If NLMSG_GOODSIZE is selected,
we request an allocation of one memory page plus the size of the
header. Instead, NLMSG_DEFAULT_SIZE should be used since it
already substracts the size of the Netlink header.

I have the impression that the similar naming in both constant
is error prone when using it with nlmsg_new(). This is already
documented in include/net/netlink.h

r8169: allow true forced mode setting

Due to mostly historic reasons, including a lack of reliability
of the link handling (especially with the older 8169), the
current r8169 driver emulates forced mode setting by limiting
the advertised modes.

With this change the driver allows real 10/100 forced mode
settings on the 8169 and 8101/8102.

Original idea by Vincent Steenhoute. The RTL_GIGA_MAC_VER_03
tweak was extracted from Realtek's r8169 v6.010.00 driver.

10 years agonet: release dst entry in dev_hard_start_xmit()
Eric Dumazet [Tue, 19 May 2009 05:19:19 +0000]
net: release dst entry in dev_hard_start_xmit()

One point of contention in high network loads is the dst_release() performed
when a transmited skb is freed. This is because NIC tx completion calls
dev_kree_skb() long after original call to dev_queue_xmit(skb).

CPU cache is cold and the atomic op in dst_release() stalls. On SMP, this is
quite visible if one CPU is 100% handling softirqs for a network device,
since dst_clone() is done by other cpus, involving cache line ping pongs.

It seems right place to release dst is in dev_hard_start_xmit(), for most
devices but ones that are virtual, and some exceptions.

David Miller suggested to define a new device flag, set in alloc_netdev_mq()
(so that most devices set it at init time), and carefuly unset in devices
which dont want a NULL skb->dst in their ndo_start_xmit().

List of devices that must clear this flag is :

- loopback device, because it calls netif_rx() and quoting Patrick :
    "ip_route_input() doesn't accept loopback addresses, so loopback packets
     already need to have a dst_entry attached."
- appletalk/ipddp.c : needs skb->dst in its xmit function

- And all devices that call again dev_queue_xmit() from their xmit function
(as some classifiers need skb->dst) : bonding, vlan, macvlan, eql, ifb, hdlc_fr

sch_teql: should not dereference skb after ndo_start_xmit()

It is illegal to dereference a skb after a successful ndo_start_xmit()
call. We must store skb length in a local variable instead.

After 2.6.29, PPC no more admits passing NULL to the dev parameter of

the driver work on my Pegasos again; it is mostly a search and replace

bonding: fix link down handling in 802.3ad mode

One of the purposes of bonding is to allow for redundant links, and failover
correctly if the cable is pulled. If all the members of a bonded device have
no carrier present, the bonded device itself needs to report no carrier present
to user space so management tools (like routing daemons) can respond.

Bonding in 802.3ad mode does not work correctly for this because it incorrectly
chooses a link that is down as a possible aggregator.

Stephen Hemminger [Fri, 15 May 2009 06:11:58 +0000]
bridge: fix initial packet flood if !STP

If bridge is configured with no STP and forwarding delay of 0 (which
is typical for virtualization) then when link starts it will flood all
packets for the first 20 seconds.

This bug was introduced by a combination of earlier changes:
  * forwarding database uses hold time of zero to indicate
    user wants to always flood packets
  * optimzation of the case of forwarding delay of 0 avoids the initial
    timer tick

The fix is to just skip all the topology change detection code if
kernel STP is not being used.

Stephen Hemminger [Fri, 15 May 2009 06:10:13 +0000]
bridge: relay bridge multicast pkgs if !STP

Currently the bridge catches all STP packets; even if STP is turned
off.  This prevents other systems (which do have STP turned on)
from being able to detect loops in the network.

With this patch, if STP is off, then any packet sent to the STP
multicast group address is forwarded to all ports.

Based on earlier patch by Joakim Tjernlund with changes
to go through forwarding (not local chain), and optimization
that only last octet needs to be checked.

ixgbe: Allow link flow control in DCB mode for 82599 adapters

82599 supports using either link flow control or priority flow control when
in DCB mode.  The dcbnl interface already supports sending down
configurations through rtnetlink that can enable LFC when DCB is enabled,
so the driver should take advantage of this.

82598 does not support using LFC when DCB is enabled, so explicitly disable
it when we're in DCB mode.  This means we always run in PFC mode when DCB
is enabled.

fcoe: adds spma mode support

If we can find a type NETDEV_HW_ADDR_T_SAN mac address from the
corresponding netdev for a fcoe interface then sets up added the
fc->ctlr.spma flag and stores spma mode address in ctl_src_addr.

In case the spma flag is set then:-

 1. Adds spma mode MAC address in ctl_src_addr as secondary
    MAC address, the FLOGI for FIP and pre-FIP will go out
    using this address.
 2. Cleans up stored spma MAC address in ctl_src_addr in
    fcoe_netdev_cleanup.
 3. Sets up spma bit in fip_flags for FIP solicitations along
    with exiting FPMA bit setting.
 4. Initialize the FLOGI FIP MAC descriptor to stored spma
    MAC address in ctl_src_addr. This is used as proposed
    FCoE MAC address from initiator along with both SPMA
    and FPMA bit set in FIP solicitation, in response the
    switch may grant any FPMA or SPMA mode MAC address to
    initiator.

Removes FIP descriptor type checking against ELS type
ELS_FLOGI in fcoe_ctlr_encaps to update a FIP MAC descriptor,
instead now checks against FIP_DT_FLOGI.

I've tested this with available FPMA-only FCoE switch but
since data_src_addr is updated using same old code for
both FPMA and SPMA modes with FIP or pre-FIP links, so added
SPMA mode will work with SPMA-only switch also provided that

10 years agofcoe: consolidates netdev related config and cleanup for spma mode
Vasu Dev [Sun, 17 May 2009 12:33:08 +0000]
fcoe: consolidates netdev related config and cleanup for spma mode

Currently fcoe_netdev_config adds netdev pkt handler for fcoe pkts,
fcoe_if_create adds netdev pkt handler for fip packets, a secondary
MAC address is added by fcoe_netdev_config and then later cleanup
for these netdev related config/adds is done only during
fcoe_if_destroy and no cleanup done on error during fcoe interface
creation after above netdev config calling in fcoe_if_create.

So this patch adds single func for above mentioned cleanup the
fcoe_netdev_cleanup and then calls this func on either fcoe interface
destroy or exiting from fcoe_if_create due to an error after fcoe/fip
related above netdev config is done.

Moved netdev pkt handler addition code blocks for fip pkts close to
similar code block for foce pkt in fcoe_netdev_config, so that added
fcoe_netdev_cleanup could be called on error from fcoe_netdev_config
to undo these both additions for fcoe/fip pkt handlers. This move
required reference to fcoe_fip_recv in fcoe_netdev_config, so moved
fip related functions fcoe_fip_recv, fcoe_fip_send and
fcoe_update_src_mac above fcoe_netdev_config.

This consolidation will enable spma mode support in next patch to
easily add or delete spma mode mac address beside fixing current
no cleanup issue during error.

net: tx scalability works : trans_start

devices, particularly multi queues ones, because every transmitter dirties
it. Is main use is tx watchdog and bonding alive checks.

But as most devices dont use NETIF_F_LLTX, we have to lock
a netdev_queue before calling their ndo_start_xmit(). So it makes
sense to move trans_start from net_device to netdev_queue. Its update
will occur on a already present (and in exclusive state) cache line, for
free.

We can do this transition smoothly. An old driver continue to
update dev->trans_start, while an updated one updates txq->trans_start.

Further patches could also put tx_bytes/tx_packets counters in

bnx2: bnx2_tx_int() optimizations

When using bnx2 in a high transmit load, bnx2_tx_int() cost is pretty high.

There are two reasons.

One is an expensive call to bnx2_get_hw_tx_cons(bnapi) for each freed skb

One is cpu stalls when accessing skb_is_gso(skb) / skb_shinfo(skb)->nr_frags
because of two cache line misses.
(One to get skb->end/head to compute skb_shinfo(skb),
 one to get is_gso/nr_frags)

This patch :

1) avoids calling bnx2_get_hw_tx_cons(bnapi) too many times.

2) makes bnx2_start_xmit() cache is_gso & nr_frags into sw_tx_bd descriptor.
   This uses a litle bit more ram (256 longs per device on x86), but helps a lot.

3) uses a prefetch(&skb->end) to speedup dev_kfree_skb(), bringing
  cache line that will be needed in skb_release_data()

result is 5 % bandwidth increase in benchmarks, involving UDP or TCP receive
 & transmits, when a cpu is dedicated to ksoftirqd for bnx2.

bnx2_tx_int going from 3.33 % cpu to 0.5 % cpu in oprofile

Note : skb_dma_unmap() still very expensive but this is for another patch,
not related to bnx2 (2.9 % of cpu, while it does nothing on x86_32)

second interface, but the server doesn't recognize the device and
rejects the request.

This patch simply tracks the current device being configured and throws
away the OFFER if it is not intended for the current device.  A more
sophisticated approach would be to put the OFFER information into the
struct ic_device rather than storing it globally.

10 years agonetpoll: don't dereference NULL dev from np

netpoll: don't dereference NULL dev from np

It looks like the dev in netpoll_poll can be NULL - at lease it's
checked at the function beginning. Thus the dev->netde_ops dereference
looks dangerous.

Yi Zou [Wed, 13 May 2009 13:11:53 +0000]
ixgbe: Implement FCoE Rx side large receive offload feature to 82599

This patch implements the FCoE Rx side offload feature in ixgbe_main.c
to 82599 using the Rx offload infrastructure code added in the previous
patch. The large receive offload by Direct Data Placement (DDP) for
FCoE is achieved by implementing the ndo_fcoe_ddp_setup and ndo_fcoe_ddp_done
in net_device_ops via netdev. It is up to the ULD, i.e., fcoe and libfc
to query and setup large receive offload accordingly through the corresponding
netdev upon creating fcoe instances.
