2018-06-26net: Convert GRO SKB handling to list_head.David Miller1-6/+6
Manage pending per-NAPI GRO packets via list_head. Return an SKB pointer from the GRO receive handlers. When GRO receive handlers return non-NULL, it means that this SKB needs to be completed at this time and removed from the NAPI queue. Several operations are greatly simplified by this transformation, especially timing out the oldest SKB in the list when gro_count exceeds MAX_GRO_SKBS, and napi_gro_flush() which walks the queue in reverse order.

2018-05-08net: core: rework basic flow dissection helperPaolo Abeni1-3/+3
When the core networking needs to detect the transport offset in a given packet and parse it explicitly, a full-blown flow_keys struct is used for storage. This patch introduces a smaller keys store, rework the basic flow dissect helper to use it, and apply this new helper where possible - namely in skb_probe_transport_header(). The used flow dissector data structures are renamed to match more closely the new role. The above gives ~50% performance improvement in micro benchmarking around skb_probe_transport_header() and ~30% around eth_get_headlen(), mostly due to the smaller memset. Small, but measurable improvement is measured also in macro benchmarking. v1 -> v2: use the new helper in eth_get_headlen() and skb_get_poff(), as per DaveM suggestion Suggested-by: David Miller <davem@davemloft.net> Signed-off-by: Paolo Abeni <pabeni@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

2017-02-08net: introduce device min_header_lenWillem de Bruijn1-0/+1
The stack must not pass packets to device drivers that are shorter than the minimum link layer header length. Previously, packet sockets would drop packets smaller than or equal to dev->hard_header_len, but this has false positives. Zero length payload is used over Ethernet. Other link layer protocols support variable length headers. Support for validation of these protocols removed the min length check for all protocols. Introduce an explicit dev->min_header_len parameter and drop all packets below this value. Initially, set it to non-zero only for Ethernet and loopback. Other protocols can follow in a patch to net-next.

2016-11-07net: make default TX queue length a defined constantJesper Dangaard Brouer1-1/+2
The default TX queue length of Ethernet devices have been a magic constant of 1000, ever since the initial git import. Looking back in historical trees[1][2] the value used to be 100, with the same comment "Ethernet wants good queues". The commit[3] that changed this from 100 to 1000 didn't describe why, but from conversations with Robert Olsson it seems that it was changed when Ethernet devices went from 100Mbit/s to 1Gbit/s, because the link speed increased x10 the queue size were also adjusted. This value later caused much heartache for the bufferbloat community. This patch merely moves the value into a defined constant.

2016-10-20net: add recursion limit to GROSabrina Dubroca1-1/+1
Currently, GRO can do unlimited recursion through the gro_receive handlers. This was fixed for tunneling protocols by limiting tunnel GRO to one level with encap_mark, but both VLAN and TEB still have this problem. Thus, the kernel is vulnerable to a stack overflow, if we receive a packet composed entirely of VLAN headers. This patch adds a recursion counter to the GRO layer to prevent stack overflow. When a gro_receive function hits the recursion limit, GRO is aborted for this skb and it is processed normally. This recursion counter is put in the GRO CB, but could be turned into a percpu counter if we run out of space in the CB. Thanks to Vladimír Beneš <vbenes@redhat.com> for the initial bug report.

2016-10-13net: deprecate eth_change_mtu, remove usageJarod Wilson1-2/+3
With centralized MTU checking, there's nothing productive done by eth_change_mtu that isn't already done in dev_set_mtu, so mark it as deprecated and remove all usage of it in the kernel. All callers have been audited for calls to alloc_etherdev* or ether_setup directly, which means they all have a valid dev->min_mtu and dev->max_mtu. Now eth_change_mtu prints out a netdev_warn about being deprecated, for the benefit of out-of-tree drivers that might be utilizing it. Of note, dvb_net.c actually had dev->mtu = 4096, while using eth_change_mtu, meaning that if you ever tried changing it's mtu, you couldn't set it above 1500 anymore. It's now getting dev->max_mtu also set to 4096 to remedy that. v2: fix up lantiq_etop, missed breakage due to drive not compiling on x86 CC: netdev@vger.kernel.org Signed-off-by: Jarod Wilson <jarod@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

2015-09-28net: help compiler generate better code in eth_get_headlenJesper Dangaard Brouer1-1/+1
Noticed that the compiler (gcc version 4.8.5 20150623 (Red Hat 4.8.5-4) (GCC)) generated suboptimal assembler code in eth_get_headlen(). This early return coding style is usually not an issue, on super scalar CPUs, but the compiler choose to put the return statement after this very unlikely branch, thus creating larger jump down to the likely code path. Performance wise, I could measure slightly less L1-icache-load-misses and less branch-misses, and an improvement of 1 nanosec with an IP-forwarding use-case with 257 bytes packets with ixgbe (CPU i7-4790K @ 4.00GHz).

2015-05-05etherdev: Fix sparse error, make test usable by other functionsAlexander Duyck1-1/+1
This change does two things. First it fixes a sparse error for the fact that the __be16 degrades to an integer. Since that is actually what I am kind of doing I am simply working around that by forcing both sides of the comparison to u16. Also I realized on some compilers I was generating another instruction for big endian systems such as PowerPC since it was masking the value before doing the comparison. So to resolve that I have simply pulled the mask out and wrapped it in an #ifndef __BIG_ENDIAN. Lastly I pulled this all out into its own function. I notices there are similar checks in a number of other places so this function can be reused there to help reduce overhead in these paths as well.

2015-05-03etherdev: Use skb->data to retrieve Ethernet header instead of eth_hdrAlexander Duyck1-1/+2
Avoid recomputing the Ethernet header location and instead just use the pointer provided by skb->data. The problem with using eth_hdr is that the compiler wasn't smart enough to realize that skb->head + skb->mac_header was the same thing as skb->data before it added ETH_HLEN. By just caching it off before calling skb_pull_inline we can avoid a few unnecessary instructions. Signed-off-by: Alexander Duyck <alexander.h.duyck@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

This allows us to avoid duplicate reads when used with other calls such as is_zero_ether_addr or eth_addr_copy.

Most of the changes needed were to __skb_get_poff as it needed to be updated to support sending a linear buffer instead of a skb.

The other function is __skb_get_poff which now works much like __skb_flow_dissect in relation to skb_flow_dissect in that it provides the same functionality but works with just a data buffer and hlen instead of needing an skb.

2014-08-27net: dsa: reduce number of protocol hooksFlorian Fainelli1-5/+2
DSA is currently registering one packet_type function per EtherType it needs to intercept in the receive path of a DSA-enabled Ethernet device. Right now we have three of them: trailer, DSA and eDSA, and there might be more in the future, this will not scale to the addition of new protocols. This patch proceeds with adding a new layer of abstraction and two new functions: dsa_switch_rcv() which will dispatch into the tag-protocol specific receive function implemented by net/dsa/tag_*.c dsa_slave_xmit() which will dispatch into the tag-protocol specific transmit function implemented by net/dsa/tag_*.c When we do create the per-port slave network devices, we iterate over the switch protocol to assign the DSA-specific receive and transmit operations. A new fake ethertype value is used: ETH_P_XDSA to illustrate the fact that this is no longer going to look like ETH_P_DSA or ETH_P_TRAILER like it used to be. This allows us to greatly simplify the check in eth_type_trans() and always override the skb->protocol with ETH_P_XDSA for Ethernet switches tagged protocol, while also reducing the number repetitive slave netdevice_ops assignments.

2012-02-13eth: reset addr_assign_type if eth_mac_addr() calledDanny Kukawka1-0/+2
If eth_mac_addr() get called, usually if SIOCSIFHWADDR was used to change the MAC of a ethernet device, reset the addr_assign_type to NET_ADDR_PERM if the state was NET_ADDR_RANDOM before. Reset the state since the MAC is no longer random at least not from the kernel side. v2: changed to bitops, removed if() Signed-off-by: Danny Kukawka <danny.kukawka@bisect.de> Signed-off-by: David S.

2011-09-15net: don't clear IFF_XMIT_DST_RELEASE in ether_setupnhorman1-1/+1
d88733150 introduced the IFF_SKB_TX_SHARING flag, which I unilaterally set in ether_setup. In doing this I didn't realize that other flags (such as IFF_XMIT_DST_RELEASE) might be set prior to calling the ether_setup routine. This patch changes ether_setup to or in SKB_TX_SHARING so as not to inadvertently clear other existing flags.
