Subject: [PATCH bpf v2] libbpf: Remove getsockopt() check for XDP_OPTIONS
Date: Mon, 16 Sep 2019 14:33:42 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20190916123342.49928-1-toke@redhat.com> (raw)

The xsk_socket__create() function fails and returns an error if it cannot
get the XDP_OPTIONS through getsockopt(). However, support for XDP_OPTIONS
was not added until kernel 5.3, so this means that creating XSK sockets
always fails on older kernels.

Since the option is just used to set the zero-copy flag in the xsk struct,
and that flag is not really used for anything yet, just remove the
getsockopt() call until a proper use for it is introduced.

Suggested-by: Yonghong Song <yhs@fb.com>
Signed-off-by: Toke Høiland-Jørgensen <toke@redhat.com>
  - Remove the call entirely.
