tcp: tsq: no longer use limit_output_bytes for paced flows
FQ pacing guarantees that paced packets queued by one flow do not add head-of-line blocking for other flows. After TCP GSO conversion, increasing limit_output_bytes to 1 MB is safe, since this maps to 16 skbs at most in qdisc or device queues. (or slightly more if some drivers lower {gso_max_segs|size}) We still can queue at most 1 ms worth of traffic (this can be scaled by wifi drivers if they need to) Tested: # ethtool -c eth0 | egrep "tx-usecs:|tx-frames:" # 40 Gbit mlx4 NIC tx-usecs: 16 tx-frames: 16 # tc qdisc replace dev eth0 root fq # for f in {1..10};do netperf -P0 -H lpaa24,6 -o THROUGHPUT;done Before patch: 27711 26118 27107 27377 27712 27388 27340 27117 27278 27509 After patch: 37434 36949 36658 36998 37711 37291 37605 36659 36544 37349 Signed-off-by: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@google.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
