This patch series implements Airtime-based Queue Limit (AQL) in the mac80211 and Ath10k driver. It is based on an earlier version from the ChromiumOS tree[0].

This version has been tested with QCA9884 platform with 4.14 kernel. Tests show AQL is able to reduce latency by an order of magnitude in a congested environment without negative impact on the throughput.

Changes from v1:
 - Fix checkpatch error.
 - Keep iterate the list of active_txq until an eligible txq's deficit become non-negative in ieee80211_next_txq(), instead of break the loop after one iteration.
 - Enforce the AQL limit in ath10k's pulling mode in ath10k_htt_rx_tx_fetch_ind()

In order for the Fq_CoDel integrated in mac80211 layer operates effectively
to control excessive queueing latency, the CoDel algorithm requires an
accurate measure of how long the packets stays in the queue, aka sojourn
time. The sojourn time measured at mac80211 layer doesn't include queueing
latency in lower layer (firmware/hardware) and CoDel expects lower layer to
have a short queue. However, most 802.11ac chipsets offload tasks such TX
aggregation to firmware or hardware, thus have a deep lower layer queue.
Without a mechanism to control the lower layer queue size, packets only
stays in mac80211 layer transiently before being sent to firmware queue.
As a result, the sojourn time measured by CoDel in the mac80211 layer is
almost always lower than the CoDel latency target, hence CoDel does little
to control the latency, even when the lower layer queue causes excessive
latency.

Byte Queue limits (BQL) is commonly used to address the similar issue with
wired network interface. However, this method cannot be applied directly
to the wireless network interface. Byte is not a suitable measure of queue
depth in the wireless network, as the data rate can vary dramatically from
station to station in the same network, from a few Mbps to over Gbps.

This patch implemented an Airtime-based Queue Limit (AQL) to make CoDel
works effectively with wireless drivers that utilized firmware/hardware
offloading. AQL only allows each txq to release just enough packets to the
lower layer to form 1-2 large aggregations to keep hardware fully utilized
and keep the rest of frames in mac80211 layer to be controlled by the CoDel
algorithm.

Calculate the estimated airtime pending in the txqs and apply AQL to
prevent excessive amounts of packets being queued in the firmware queue.

I think this isn't really all that clear, "The airtime is [...]
decreased by the same amount at the tx completion event." makes it sound
like that is implicit? But that's not true, this needs to be called at
that point, afaict?

I'm not sure why you decided to not add the inlines I suggested, but I
still think it'd be clearer to have them to indicate that both need to
be called.

Some note should probably also be there that we really want to decrease
later again with the same value that it was increased with, not with the
actual airtime that's now known due to the TX completion, right?

You could use "0" and "'\0'" consistently - I'd prefer just plain 0, but
here you have two spellings within 4 lines ;-)

I think you should reset them if the warning happens?

This doesn't make sense as an s32. I realize you need it above for the
warning, but you can check for underflow before doing the calculation
and keep the storage unsigned.

This is a massive expression ... IMHO it'd be clearer as either
splitting it up into pieces ("if (first) return true; if (second) return
true; return false;") or just returning the value of the expression?

	if (x) return true; else return false;

is just

	return x;

after all.

I assume here the only txq in the list that does not meet AQL check will 
not be dequeued. Right? Will it affect peak throughput once there is 
only one station.

How about dequeuing it anyway regardless AQL because it is the only one 
active now so it is fine to occupy the rest bandwidth. Otherwise, I am 
afraid next_txq() will return NULL in the test only one station is 
present.

why return here? I think even a txq without sta info should get removed 
from list and added it back later in return_txq() if needed. No?

Please CC ath10k patches to ath10k list, I doubt all ath10k developers
follow linux-wireless.

Hi  Johannes,

Thanks for the review and will address all issues you pointed out in
the next version.

Hi Yibo,
>

Yes, the txq won't be picked for transmitting even if it is the only
active txq if the AQL check failed.  However, this won't affect peak
throughput. The reason why there are two queue limits is address this
kind of situation. The higher queue limit ensures the hardware get
enough frames.

Yes, it should be removed from the active list. I will fix that.
