Hi John,

ack, you are right. I will add more context next time. Sorry for the noise.

I will point it out in the new commit log, but this is a preliminary patch for
xdp multi-buff support. In the current codebase xdp_update_skb_shared_info()
is run just when the NIC is not running in XDP mode (please note
mvneta_swbm_add_rx_fragment() is run even if xdp_prog is NULL).
When we add xdp multi-buff support, xdp_update_skb_shared_info() will run even
in XDP mode since we will remove the MTU constraint.

In the current codebsae the following condition can occur in non-XDP mode if
the packet is split on 3 or more descriptors (e.g. MTU 9000):

if (!(rx_status & MVNETA_RXD_LAST_DESC))
   continue;

I added pfmemalloc code in xdp_update_skb_shared_info() in order to reuse it
for the xdp_redirect use-case (e.g. whenever we redirect a xdp multi-buff
in a veth or in a cpumap). I have a pending patch where I am using
xdp_update_skb_shared_info in __xdp_build_skb_from_frame().

ack

> Also how about giving gso_type a better name. xdp_sinfo->size maybe?

I did it in this way in order to avoid adding a union in skb_shared_info.
What about adding an inline helper to set/get it? e.g.

static inline u32 xdp_get_data_len(struct skb_shared_info *sinfo)
{
    return sinfo->gso_type;
}

static inline void xdp_set_data_len(struct skb_shared_info *sinfo, u32 datalen)
{
    sinfo->gso_type = datalen;
}

Regards,
Lorenzo
