Commit Message

Jason Wang Feb. 9, 2015, 8:39 a.m. UTC
On newer hosts that support delayed tx interrupts,
we probably don't have much to gain from orphaning
packets early.

Note: this might degrade performance for
hosts without event idx support.
Should be addressed by the next patch.

Changes from RFCv4:
- change:
        virtqueue_disable_cb(sq->vq);
        napi_schedule(&sq->napi);

  in skb_xmit_done() to:

  if (__napi_schedule_prep(&sq->napi)) {
     virtqueue_diable_cb(sq->vq);
     __napi_schedule(&sq->napi);
  }

  to solve the race on architectures that atomic operations were not
  serialized. And do solve a similar issue in virtnet_poll_tx().
- use netif_wake_subqueue() instead of netif_start_subqueue() in
  free_old_xmit_skbs(), since it may be called in tx napi.
- in start_xmit(), try to enable the callback only when current skb is
  the last in the list or tx has already been stopped. This avoid the
  callbacks enabling in heavy load.
