net: do not create fallback tunnels for non-default namespaces
fallback tunnels (like tunl0, gre0, gretap0, erspan0, sit0, ip6tnl0, ip6gre0) are automatically created when the corresponding module is loaded. These tunnels are also automatically created when a new network namespace is created, at a great cost. In many cases, netns are used for isolation purposes, and these extra network devices are a waste of resources. We are using thousands of netns per host, and hit the netns creation/delete bottleneck a lot. (Many thanks to Kirill for recent work on this) Add a new sysctl so that we can opt-out from this automatic creation. Note that these tunnels are still created for the initial namespace, to be the least intrusive for typical setups. Tested: lpk43:~# cat add_del_unshare.sh for i in `seq 1 40` do (for j in `seq 1 100` ; do unshare -n /bin/true >/dev/null ; done) & done wait lpk43:~# echo 0 >/proc/sys/net/core/fb_tunnels_only_for_init_net lpk43:~# time ./add_del_unshare.sh real 0m37.521s user 0m0.886s sys 7m7.084s lpk43:~# echo 1 >/proc/sys/net/core/fb_tunnels_only_for_init_net lpk43:~# time ./add_del_unshare.sh real 0m4.761s user 0m0.851s sys 1m8.343s lpk43:~# Signed-off-by: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@google.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
