Performance tests of the c_can driver led to the patch that gives the
series its name. I also added two patches not really related to the topic
of the series.


Dario Binacchi (4):
  can: c_can: remove struct c_can_priv::priv field
  can: c_can: exit c_can_do_tx() early if no frames have been sent
  can: c_can: support tx ring algorithm
  can: c_can: cache frames to operate as a true FIFO

It references the clock but it is never used. So let's remove it.

The c_can_poll() handles RX/TX events unconditionally. It may therefore
happen that c_can_do_tx() is called unnecessarily because the interrupt
was triggered by the reception of a frame. In these cases, we avoid to
execute unnecessary statements and exit immediately.

The algorithm is already used successfully by other CAN drivers
(e.g. mcp251xfd). Its implementation was kindly suggested to me by
Marc Kleine-Budde following a patch I had previously submitted. You can
find every detail at https://lore.kernel.org/patchwork/patch/1422929/.

The idea is that after this patch, it will be easier to patch the driver
to use the message object memory as a true FIFO.

As reported by a comment in the c_can_start_xmit() this was not a FIFO.
C/D_CAN controller sends out the buffers prioritized so that the lowest
buffer number wins.

What did c_can_start_xmit() do if head was less tail in the tx ring ? It
waited until all the frames queued in the FIFO was actually transmitted
by the controller before accepting a new CAN frame to transmit, even if
the FIFO was not full, to ensure that the messages were transmitted in
the order in which they were loaded.

By storing the frames in the FIFO without requiring its transmission, we
will be able to use the full size of the FIFO even in cases such as the
one described above. The transmission interrupt will trigger their
transmission only when all the messages previously loaded but stored in
less priority positions of the buffers have been transmitted.

What does the spin_lock protect? The ndo_start_xmit function is properly
serialized by the networking core.

Otherwise the patch looks good!

Patch 3 adds the ring transmission algorithm without compromising the
message transmission order. This is not a FIFO. C/D_CAN controller sends
out the buffers prioritized. The lowest buffer number wins, so moving the
change into patch 3 may not guarantee the transmission order.
In patch 3, however, I will move c_can_get_tx_free() from c_can_main.c to 
c_can.h, so that in patch 4 it will be clearer how the routine has changed.

Thanks and regards,
Dario

The spin_lock protects the access to the IF_TX interface. Enabling the transmission 
of cached messages occur inside interrupt and the use of the IF_RX interface,
which would avoid the use of the spinlock, has not been validated by
the tests.

Right, thanks!

The updated patch looks much nicer now, thanks!

How? You only use the spin_lock in c_can_start_xmit(), but not anywhere
else.

The call chain is c_can_poll() -> c_can_do_tx(), and c_can_poll() is
called from NAPI, which is not the IRQ handler.

What do you mean be has not been validated?

The driver already uses IF_RX to avoid concurrent access in
c_can_do_tx() for c_can_inval_tx_object() [1], why not use IF_RX for
c_can_object_put(), too?

It's been a while since I submitted the series and I certainly got confused.
