Subject: [PATCH V2 net-next 7/7] net: ena: update ena documentation
Date: Mon, 21 Sep 2020 11:37:42 +0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

The PCI vendor IDs in the documentation inaccurately describe the ENA
devices. For example, the 1d0f:ec20 can have LLQ support. The driver
loads in LLQ mode by default, and a message is printed to the kernel
ring if the mode isn't supported by the device, so the device table
isn't needed.

Also, LLQ can support various entry sizes, so the documentation is
updated to reflect that.

Interrupt moderation description is also updated to be more accurate.

-By default ENA driver applies adaptive coalescing on Rx traffic and

 Adaptive coalescing can be switched on/off through ethtool(8)
 adaptive_rx on|off parameter.
