Frieder Schrempf reported a TX throuthput issue [1], it happens quite often
that the measured bandwidth in TX direction drops from its expected/nominal
value to something like ~50% (for 100M) or ~67% (for 1G) connections.

[1] https://lore.kernel.org/linux-arm-kernel/421cc86c-b66f-b372-32f7-21e59f9a98bc@kontron.de/

The issue becomes clear after digging into it, Net core would select
queues when transmitting packets. Since FEC have not impletemented
ndo_select_queue callback yet, so it will call netdev_pick_tx to select
queues randomly.

For i.MX6SX ENET IP with AVB support, driver default enables this
feature. According to the setting of QOS/RCMRn/DMAnCFG registers, AVB
configured to Credit-based scheme, 50% bandwidth of queue 1&2.

With below tests let me think more:
1) With FEC_QUIRK_HAS_AVB quirk, can reproduce TX bandwidth fluctuations issue.
2) Without FEC_QUIRK_HAS_AVB quirk, can't reproduce TX bandwidth fluctuations issue.

The related difference with or w/o FEC_QUIRK_HAS_AVB quirk is that, whether we
program FTYPE field of TxBD or not. As I describe above, AVB feature is
enabled by default. With FEC_QUIRK_HAS_AVB quirk, frames in queue 0
marked as non-AVB, and frames in queue 1&2 marked as AVB Class A&B. It's
unreasonable if frames in queue 1&2 are not required to be time-sensitive.
So when Net core select tx queues ramdomly, Credit-based scheme would work
and lead to TX bandwidth fluctuated. On the other hand, w/o
FEC_QUIRK_HAS_AVB quirk, frames in queue 1&2 are all marked as non-AVB, so
Credit-based scheme would not work.

Till now, how can we fix this TX throughput issue? Yes, please remove
FEC_QUIRK_HAS_AVB quirk if you suffer it from time-nonsensitive networking.
However, this quirk is used to indicate i.MX6SX, other setting depends
on it. So this patch adds a new quirk FEC_QUIRK_HAS_MULTI_QUEUES to
represents i.MX6SX, it is safe for us remove FEC_QUIRK_HAS_AVB quirk
now.

FEC_QUIRK_HAS_AVB quirk is set by default in the driver, and users may
not know much about driver details, they would waste effort to find the
root cause, that if not we want. The following patch is a implementation
to fix it and users don't need to modify the driver.

From: Fugang Duan <fugang.duan@nxp.com>

As we know that AVB is enabled by default, and the ENET IP design is
queue 0 for best effort, queue 1&2 for AVB Class A&B. Bandwidth of
queue 1&2 set in driver is 50%, TX bandwidth fluctuated when selecting
tx queues randomly with FEC_QUIRK_HAS_AVB quirk available.

This patch adds ndo_select_queue callback to select queues for
transmitting to fix this issue. It will always return queue 0 if this is
not a vlan packet, and return queue 1 or 2 based on priority of vlan
packet.

You may complain that in fact we only use single queue for trasmitting
if we are not targeted to VLAN. Yes, but seems we have no choice, since
AVB is enabled when the driver probed, we can't switch this feature
dynamicly. After compare multiple queues to single queue, TX throughput
almost no improvement.

One way we can implemet is to configure the driver to multiple queues
with Round-robin scheme by default. Then add ndo_setup_tc callback to
enable/disable AVB feature for users. Unfortunately, ENET AVB IP seems
not follow the standard 802.1Qav spec. We only can program
DMAnCFG[IDLE_SLOPE] field to calculate bandwidth fraction. And idle
slope is restricted to certain valus (a total of 19). It's far away from
CBS QDisc implemented in Linux TC framework. If you strongly suggest to do
this, I think we only can support limited numbers of bandwidth and reject
others, but it's really urgly and wried.

With this patch, VLAN tagged packets route to queue 1&2 based on vlan
priority; VLAN untagged packets route to queue 0.

I wonder if priority 0 should be sent to queue 0?

How is the driver currently scheduling between these queues? Given the
802.1q priorities, i think we want queue 2 with the highest priority
for scheduling. Then queue 0 and lastly queue 1.

Yes, we can. But the original thought of author seems to, VLAN tagged packets only use queue 1&2, and queue 0is reserved for VLAN untagged packets.

I think currently there is no schedule between these queues in the driver.

Could you please point me where I can find mapping between priorities and queues? You prefer to below mapping?
static const u16 fec_enet_vlan_pri_to_queue[8] = {1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 2, 2, 2};

So queues 1 and 2 are limited to 50% the total bandwidth, but are
otherwise not prioritised over queue 0? That sounds odd.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEEE_P802.1p

I'm not sure i actually believe the hardware does not prioritise the
queues. It seems to me, it is more likely to take frames from queues 1
and 2 if they have not consumed their 50% share.

PCP value 0 is best effort. That should really be given the same
priority as a packet without a VLAN header. Which is why i suggested
putting those packets into queue 0.

Also, if the hardware is performing prioritisation, PCP value 1,
background, when put into queue 1 will end up as higher priority then
best effort?

No, when enable AVB (configured as Credit-based scheme), queue 0 is best effort, queue 1 is limited to 50% bandwidth, queue 2 is also limited to 50% bandwidth.
I may misunderstand to you, what I mean is that there is no scheduler from software level, Net core calls netdev_pick_tx() to select a queue. From the hardware level, schedule with Credit-based.

Err, this link isn't available at my side. It's seems 802.1q spec.

Hardware xmits with Credit-based scheme.

Make sense.

I don't think so, Credit-based scheduler would schedule based on credit, not the PCP filed.
