parenttcp: avoid extra wakeups for SO_RCVLOWAT users (diff)
tcp: implement mmap() for zero copy receive
Some networks can make sure TCP payload can exactly fit 4KB pages, with well chosen MSS/MTU and architectures. Implement mmap() system call so that applications can avoid copying data without complex splice() games. Note that a successful mmap( X bytes) on TCP socket is consuming bytes, as if recvmsg() has been done. (tp->copied += X) Only PROT_READ mappings are accepted, as skb page frags are fundamentally shared and read only. If tcp_mmap() finds data that is not a full page, or a patch of urgent data, -EINVAL is returned, no bytes are consumed. Application must fallback to recvmsg() to read the problematic sequence. mmap() wont block, regardless of socket being in blocking or non-blocking mode. If not enough bytes are in receive queue, mmap() would return -EAGAIN, or -EIO if socket is in a state where no other bytes can be added into receive queue. An application might use SO_RCVLOWAT, poll() and/or ioctl( FIONREAD) to efficiently use mmap() On the sender side, MSG_EOR might help to clearly separate unaligned headers and 4K-aligned chunks if necessary. Tested: mlx4 (cx-3) 40Gbit NIC, with tcp_mmap program provided in following patch.
