Subject: [PATCH net-next v11 2/3] net: implement threaded-able napi poll loop support
Date: Mon,  8 Feb 2021 11:34:09 -0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210208193410.3859094-3-weiwan@google.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210208193410.3859094-1-weiwan@google.com>

This patch allows running each napi poll loop inside its own
kernel thread.
The kthread is created during netif_napi_add() if dev->threaded
is set. And threaded mode is enabled in napi_enable(). We will
provide a way to set dev->threaded and enable threaded mode
without a device up/down in the following patch.

Once that threaded mode is enabled and the kthread is
started, napi_schedule() will wake-up such thread instead
of scheduling the softirq.

The threaded poll loop behaves quite likely the net_rx_action,
but it does not have to manipulate local irqs and uses
an explicit scheduling point based on netdev_budget.
