parentpacket: rework packet_pick_tx_queue() to use common code selection (diff)
net: remove 'fallback' argument from dev->ndo_select_queue()
After the previous patch, all the callers of ndo_select_queue() provide as a 'fallback' argument netdev_pick_tx. The only exceptions are nested calls to ndo_select_queue(), which pass down the 'fallback' available in the current scope - still netdev_pick_tx. We can drop such argument and replace fallback() invocation with netdev_pick_tx(). This avoids an indirect call per xmit packet in some scenarios (TCP syn, UDP unconnected, XDP generic, pktgen) with device drivers implementing such ndo. It also clean the code a bit. Tested with ixgbe and CONFIG_FCOE=m With pktgen using queue xmit: threads vanilla patched (kpps) (kpps) 1 2334 2428 2 4166 4278 4 7895 8100 v1 -> v2: - rebased after helper's name change Signed-off-by: Paolo Abeni <pabeni@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
