parentRDMA/nes: Avoid complaints about unused variables (diff)
infiniband: i40iw, nes: don't use wall time for TCP sequence numbers
The nes infiniband driver uses current_kernel_time() to get a nanosecond granunarity timestamp to initialize its tcp sequence counters. This is one of only a few remaining users of that deprecated function, so we should try to get rid of it. Aside from using a deprecated API, there are several problems I see here: - Using a CLOCK_REALTIME based time source makes it predictable in case the time base is synchronized. - Using a coarse timestamp means it only gets updated once per jiffie, making it even more predictable in order to avoid having to access the hardware clock source - The upper 2 bits are always zero because the nanoseconds are at most 999999999. For the Linux TCP implementation, we use secure_tcp_seq(), which appears to be appropriate here as well, and solves all the above problems. i40iw uses a variant of the same code, so I do that same thing there for ipv4. Unlike nes, i40e also supports ipv6, which needs to call secure_tcpv6_seq instead.
