Subject: [PATCH net-next 0/6] sk_buff: optimize GRO for the common case
Date: Wed, 28 Jul 2021 18:23:58 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <cover.1627405778.git.pabeni@redhat.com> (raw)

This is a trimmed down revision of "sk_buff: optimize layout for GRO",
specifically dropping the changes to the sk_buff layout[1].

This series tries to accomplish 2 goals:
- optimize the GRO stage for the most common scenario, avoiding a bunch
  of conditional and some more code
- let owned skbs entering the GRO engine, allowing backpressure in the
  veth GRO forward path.

A new sk_buff flag (!!!) is introduced and maintained for GRO's sake.
Such field uses an existing hole, so there is no change to the sk_buff
size.

[1] two main reasons:
- move skb->inner_ field requires some extra care, as some in kernel
  users access and the fields regardless of skb->encapsulation.
- extending secmark size clash with ct and nft uAPIs

address the all above is possible, I think, but for sure not in a single
series.

Paolo Abeni (6):
  sk_buff: introduce 'slow_gro' flags
  sk_buff: track dst status in slow_gro
  sk_buff: track extension status in slow_gro
  net: optimize GRO for the common case.
  skbuff: allow 'slow_gro' for skb carring sock reference
  veth: use skb_prepare_for_gro()
