net: core: rework basic flow dissection helper
When the core networking needs to detect the transport offset in a given packet and parse it explicitly, a full-blown flow_keys struct is used for storage. This patch introduces a smaller keys store, rework the basic flow dissect helper to use it, and apply this new helper where possible - namely in skb_probe_transport_header(). The used flow dissector data structures are renamed to match more closely the new role. The above gives ~50% performance improvement in micro benchmarking around skb_probe_transport_header() and ~30% around eth_get_headlen(), mostly due to the smaller memset. Small, but measurable improvement is measured also in macro benchmarking. v1 -> v2: use the new helper in eth_get_headlen() and skb_get_poff(), as per DaveM suggestion Suggested-by: David Miller <davem@davemloft.net> Signed-off-by: Paolo Abeni <pabeni@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
