Merge branch 'reduce-open-coded-skb-next-access-for-gso-segment-walking'
Jason A. Donenfeld says: ==================== reduce open coded skb->next access for gso segment walking This patchset introduces the skb_list_walk_safe helper macro, in order to add some sanity to the myrid ways drivers have of walking through gso segments. The goal is to reduce future bugs commonly caused by open coding these sorts of things, and to in the future make it easier to swap out the underlying list representation. This first patch series addresses the easy uses of drivers iterating over the returned list of skb_gso_segments, for drivers that live in drivers/net/*. There are still other use cases to tackle later for net/*, and after these low-hanging fruits are taken care of, I imagine there are more subtle cases of gso segment walking that isn't just a direct return value from skb_gso_segments, and eventually this will have to be tackled. This series is the first in that direction. ==================== Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <firstname.lastname@example.org>
