Subject: [PATCH v3] fs/epoll: Enable non-blocking busypoll when epoll timeout is 0
Date: Thu,  9 Jul 2020 21:51:49 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Trigger non-blocking busy poll when busy_poll is enabled and
epoll is called with a timeout of 0 and is associated with a 
napi_id. This enables an app thread to go through napi poll 
routine once by calling epoll with a 0 timeout.

poll/select with a 0 timeout behave in a similar manner.

Signed-off-by: Sridhar Samudrala <>

v3: reset napi_id if no event available after busy poll (Alex)
v2: Added net_busy_loop_on() check (Eric)
