Subject: [PATCH bpf-next v2 0/2] Optimize bpf_redirect_map()/xdp_do_redirect()
Date: Sat, 20 Feb 2021 16:30:54 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210220153056.111968-1-bjorn.topel@gmail.com> (raw)

Hi XDP-folks,

This two patch series contain two optimizations for the
bpf_redirect_map() helper and the xdp_do_redirect() function.

The bpf_redirect_map() optimization is about avoiding the map lookup
dispatching. Instead of having a switch-statement and selecting the
correct lookup function, we let the verifier patch the
bpf_redirect_map() call to a specific lookup function. This way the
run-time lookup is avoided.

The xdp_do_redirect() patch restructures the code, so that the map
pointer indirection can be avoided.

Performance-wise I got 3% improvement for XSKMAP
(sample:xdpsock/rx-drop), and 4% (sample:xdp_redirect_map) on my

More details in each commit. Changes since the RFC is outlined in each
