2018-07-24net/sched: add skbprio schedulerNishanth Devarajan1-0/+320
Skbprio (SKB Priority Queue) is a queueing discipline that prioritizes packets according to their skb->priority field. Under congestion, already-enqueued lower priority packets will be dropped to make space available for higher priority packets. Skbprio was conceived as a solution for denial-of-service defenses that need to route packets with different priorities as a means to overcome DoS attacks. v5 *Do not reference qdisc_dev(sch)->tx_queue_len for setting limit. Instead set default sch->limit to 64. v4 *Drop Documentation/networking/sch_skbprio.txt doc file to move it to tc man page for Skbprio, in iproute2. v3 *Drop max_limit parameter in struct skbprio_sched_data and instead use sch->limit. *Reference qdisc_dev(sch)->tx_queue_len only once, during initialisation for qdisc (previously being referenced every time qdisc changes). *Move qdisc's detailed description from in-code to Documentation/networking. *When qdisc is saturated, enqueue incoming packet first before dequeueing lowest priority packet in queue - improves usage of call stack registers. *Introduce and use overlimit stat to keep track of number of dropped packets. v2 *Use skb->priority field rather than DS field. Rename queueing discipline as SKB Priority Queue (previously Gatekeeper Priority Queue). *Queueing discipline is made classful to expose Skbprio's internal priority queues.
