What I usually do when benchmarking XDP_REDIRECT is to just use pktgen
(samples/pktgen in the kernel source tree) on another machine,
specifically, like this:

./pktgen_sample03_burst_single_flow.sh  -i enp1s0f1 -d 10.70.2.2 -m ec:0d:9a:db:11:35 -t 4  -s 64

(adjust iface, IP and MAC address to your system, of course). That'll
flood the target machine with small UDP packets. On that machine, I then
run the 'xdp_redirect_map' program from samples/bpf. The bpf program
used by that sample will update an internal counter for every packet,
and the userspace prints it out, which gives you the performance (in
PPS). So just modifying that sample to using your new multicast helper
(and comparing it to regular REDIRECT to a single device) would be a
first approximation of a performance test.

Well, the way to 'force the user' is just to assume that this is the
case, and if the map is filled in wrong, things just won't work ;)

You could do something like:

bool first = true;
for (;;) {

[...]

           if (!first) {
   		nxdpf = xdpf_clone(xdpf);
   		if (unlikely(!nxdpf))
   			return -ENOMEM;
   		bq_enqueue(dev, nxdpf, dev_rx);
           } else {
   		bq_enqueue(dev, xdpf, dev_rx);
   		first = false;
           }
}

/* didn't find anywhere to forward to, free buf */
if (first)
   xdp_return_frame_rx_napi(xdpf);



[...]

Yeah, guess it may not be as simple as I'd like it to be ;)
Let's keep it this way for now at least; we can always consolidate in a
separate patch series.
