Pull networking changes from David S Miller: 1) Remove the ipv4 routing cache. Now lookups go directly into the FIB trie and use prebuilt routes cached there. No more garbage collection, no more rDOS attacks on the routing cache. Instead we now get predictable and consistent performance, no matter what the pattern of traffic we service. This has been almost 2 years in the making. Special thanks to Julian Anastasov, Eric Dumazet, Steffen Klassert, and others who have helped along the way. I'm sure that with a change of this magnitude there will be some kind of fallout, but such things ought the be simple to fix at this point. Luckily I'm not European so I'll be around all of August to fix things :-) The major stages of this work here are each fronted by a forced merge commit whose commit message contains a top-level description of the motivations and implementation issues. 2) Pre-demux of established ipv4 TCP sockets, saves a route demux on input. 3) TCP SYN/ACK performance tweaks from Eric Dumazet. 4) Add namespace support for netfilter L4 conntrack helpers, from Gao Feng. 5) Add config mechanism for Energy Efficient Ethernet to ethtool, from Yuval Mintz. 6) Remove quadratic behavior from /proc/net/unix, from Eric Dumazet. 7) Support for connection tracker helpers in userspace, from Pablo Neira Ayuso. 8) Allow userspace driven TX load balancing functions in TEAM driver, from Jiri Pirko. 9) Kill off NLMSG_PUT and RTA_PUT macros, more gross stuff with embedded gotos. 10) TCP Small Queues, essentially minimize the amount of TCP data queued up in the packet scheduler layer. Whereas the existing BQL (Byte Queue Limits) limits the pkt_sched --> netdevice queuing levels, this controls the TCP --> pkt_sched queueing levels. From Eric Dumazet. 11) Reduce the number of get_page/put_page ops done on SKB fragments, from Alexander Duyck. 12) Implement protection against blind resets in TCP (RFC 5961), from Eric Dumazet. 13) Support the client side of TCP Fast Open, basically the ability to send data in the SYN exchange, from Yuchung Cheng. Basically, the sender queues up data with a sendmsg() call using MSG_FASTOPEN, then they do the connect() which emits the queued up fastopen data. 14) Avoid all the problems we get into in TCP when timers or PMTU events hit a locked socket. The TCP Small Queues changes added a tcp_release_cb() that allows us to queue work up to the release_sock() caller, and that's what we use here too. From Eric Dumazet. 15) Zero copy on TX support for TUN driver, from Michael S.
