2019-10-25net: mvneta: make stub functions static inlineBen Dooks (Codethink)1-12/+20
If the CONFIG_MVNET_BA is not set, then make the stub functions static inline to avoid trying to export them, and remove hte following sparse warnings: drivers/net/ethernet/marvell/mvneta_bm.h:163:6: warning: symbol 'mvneta_bm_pool_destroy' was not declared. Should it be static? drivers/net/ethernet/marvell/mvneta_bm.h:165:6: warning: symbol 'mvneta_bm_bufs_free' was not declared.

2018-07-28net: mvneta: Allocate page for the descriptorGregory CLEMENT1-3/+0
Instead of trying to allocate the exact amount of memory for each descriptor use a page for each of them, it allows to simplify the allocation management and increase the performance of the driver.

2018-07-28net: mvneta: remove data pointer usage from device_node structureGregory CLEMENT1-0/+5
On year ago Rob Herring wanted to remove the data pointer from the device_node structure[1]. The mvneta driver seemed to be the only one which used (abused ?) it. However, the proposal of Rob to remove this pointer from the driver introduced a regression, and I tested and fixed an alternative way, but it was never submitted as a proper patch. Now here it is: Instead of using the device_node structure ->data pointer, we store the BM private data as the driver data of the BM platform_device. The core mvneta code can retrieve it by doing a lookup on which platform_device corresponds to the BM device tree node using of_find_device_by_node(), and get its driver data [1]https://www.spinics.net/lists/netdev/msg445197.html Signed-off-by: Gregory CLEMENT <gregory.clement@bootlin.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

2016-09-12net: mvneta: use IS_ENABLED() instead of checking for built-in or moduleJavier Martinez Canillas1-1/+1
The IS_ENABLED() macro checks if a Kconfig symbol has been enabled either built-in or as a module, use that macro instead of open coding the same. Using the macro makes the code more readable by helping abstract away some of the Kconfig built-in and module enable details.

2016-03-14net: mvneta: bm: add support for hardware buffer managementMarcin Wojtas1-0/+189
Buffer manager (BM) is a dedicated hardware unit that can be used by all ethernet ports of Armada XP and 38x SoC's. It allows to offload CPU on RX path by sparing DRAM access on refilling buffer pool, hardware-based filling of descriptor ring data and better memory utilization due to HW arbitration for using 'short' pools for small packets. Tests performed with A388 SoC working as a network bridge between two packet generators showed increase of maximum processed 64B packets by ~20k (~555k packets with BM enabled vs ~535 packets without BM). Also when pushing 1500B-packets with a line rate achieved, CPU load decreased from around 25% without BM to 20% with BM. BM comprise up to 4 buffer pointers' (BP) rings kept in DRAM, which are called external BP pools - BPPE. Allocating and releasing buffer pointers (BP) to/from BPPE is performed indirectly by write/read access to a dedicated internal SRAM, where internal BP pools (BPPI) are placed. BM hardware controls status of BPPE automatically, as well as assigning proper buffers to RX descriptors. For more details please refer to Functional Specification of Armada XP or 38x SoC. In order to enable support for a separate hardware block, common for all ports, a new driver has to be implemented ('mvneta_bm'). It provides initialization sequence of address space, clocks, registers, SRAM, empty pools' structures and also obtaining optional configuration from DT (please refer to device tree binding documentation). mvneta_bm exposes also a necessary API to mvneta driver, as well as a dedicated structure with BM information (bm_priv), whose presence is used as a flag notifying of BM usage by port. It has to be ensured that mvneta_bm probe is executed prior to the ones in ports' driver. In case BM is not used or its probe fails, mvneta falls back to use software buffer management. A sequence executed in mvneta_probe function is modified in order to have an access to needed resources before possible port's BM initialization is done. According to port-pools mapping provided by DT appropriate registers are configured and the buffer pools are filled. RX path is modified accordingly. Becaues the hardware allows a wide variety of configuration options, following assumptions are made: * using BM mechanisms can be selectively disabled/enabled basing on DT configuration among the ports * 'long' pool's single buffer size is tied to port's MTU * using 'long' pool by port is obligatory and it cannot be shared * using 'short' pool for smaller packets is optional * one 'short' pool can be shared among all ports This commit enables hardware buffer management operation cooperating with existing mvneta driver. New device tree binding documentation is added and the one of mvneta is updated accordingly.
