2011-11-29bql: Byte queue limitsTom Herbert
Networking stack support for byte queue limits, uses dynamic queue limits library. Byte queue limits are maintained per transmit queue, and a dql structure has been added to netdev_queue structure for this purpose. Configuration of bql is in the tx-<n> sysfs directory for the queue under the byte_queue_limits directory. Configuration includes: limit_min, bql minimum limit limit_max, bql maximum limit hold_time, bql slack hold time Also under the directory are: limit, current byte limit inflight, current number of bytes on the queue Signed-off-by: Tom Herbert <therbert@google.com> Acked-by: Eric Dumazet <eric.dumazet@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

2011-11-29xps: Add xps_queue_release functionTom Herbert
This patch moves the xps specific parts in netdev_queue_release into its own function which netdev_queue_release can call. This allows netdev_queue_release to be more generic (for adding new attributes to tx queues).

2011-11-29dql: Dynamic queue limitsTom Herbert
Implementation of dynamic queue limits (dql). This is a libary which allows a queue limit to be dynamically managed. The goal of dql is to set the queue limit, number of objects to the queue, to be minimized without allowing the queue to be starved. dql would be used with a queue which has these properties: 1) Objects are queued up to some limit which can be expressed as a count of objects. 2) Periodically a completion process executes which retires consumed objects. 3) Starvation occurs when limit has been reached, all queued data has actually been consumed but completion processing has not yet run, so queuing new data is blocked. 4) Minimizing the amount of queued data is desirable. A canonical example of such a queue would be a NIC HW transmit queue. The queue limit is dynamic, it will increase or decrease over time depending on the workload. The queue limit is recalculated each time completion processing is done. Increases occur when the queue is starved and can exponentially increase over successive intervals. Decreases occur when more data is being maintained in the queue than needed to prevent starvation. The number of extra objects, or "slack", is measured over successive intervals, and to avoid hysteresis the limit is only reduced by the miminum slack seen over a configurable time period. dql API provides routines to manage the queue: - dql_init is called to intialize the dql structure - dql_reset is called to reset dynamic values - dql_queued called when objects are being enqueued - dql_avail returns availability in the queue - dql_completed is called when objects have be consumed in the queue Configuration consists of: - max_limit, maximum limit - min_limit, minimum limit - slack_hold_time, time to measure instances of slack before reducing queue limit Signed-off-by: Tom Herbert <therbert@google.com> Acked-by: Eric Dumazet <eric.dumazet@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

2011-11-29tcp: do not scale TSO segment size with reordering degreeNeal Cardwell
Since 2005 (c1b4a7e69576d65efc31a8cea0714173c2841244) tcp_tso_should_defer has been using tcp_max_burst() as a target limit for deciding how large to make outgoing TSO packets when not using sysctl_tcp_tso_win_divisor. But since 2008 (dd9e0dda66ba38a2ddd1405ac279894260dc5c36) tcp_max_burst() returns the reordering degree. We should not have tcp_tso_should_defer attempt to build larger segments just because there is more reordering. This commit splits the notion of deferral size used in TSO from the notion of burst size used in cwnd moderation, and returns the TSO deferral limit to its original value.

2011-11-29NET: NETROM: When adding a route verify length of mnemonic string.Ralf Baechle
struct nr_route_struct's mnemonic permits a string of up to 7 bytes to be used. If userland passes a not zero terminated string to the kernel adding a node to the routing table might result in the kernel attempting to read copy a too long string. Mnemonic is part of the NET/ROM routing protocol; NET/ROM routing table updates only broadcast 6 bytes. The 7th byte in the mnemonic array exists only as a \0 termination character for the kernel code's convenience. Fixed by rejecting mnemonic strings that have no terminating \0 in the first 7 characters. Do this test only NETROM_NODE to avoid breaking NETROM_NEIGH where userland might passing an uninitialized mnemonic field. Initial patch by Dan Carpenter <dan.carpenter@oracle.com>.

2011-11-28tg3: Scale back code that modifies MRRSMatt Carlson
Tg3 normally gets a performance boost by increasing the PCI Maximum Read Request Size (MRRS) to 4k. Unfortunately, this is causing some problems on particular hardware platforms. This patch removes all code that modifies the MRRS except for one case. As part of a solution to fix an internal FIFO problem on the 5719, the driver artificially capped the MRRS to 2k for the entire 5719, and later 5720, ASIC revs. This was overly aggressive and only really needed to be done for the 5719 A0. In the spirit of the rest of this patch, the driver will only reprogram the MRRS for this device if the value exceeds the 2k cap.

2011-11-28tg3: Fix TSO CAP for 5704 devs w / ASF enabledMatt Carlson
On the earliest TSO capable devices, TSO was accomplished through firmware. The TSO cannot coexist with ASF management firmware though. The tg3 driver determines whether or not ASF is enabled by calling tg3_get_eeprom_hw_cfg(), which checks a particular bit of NIC memory. Commit dabc5c670d3f86d15ee4f42ab38ec5bd2682487d, entitled "tg3: Move TSO_CAPABLE assignment", accidentally moved the code that determines TSO capabilities earlier than the call to tg3_get_eeprom_hw_cfg(). As a consequence, the driver was attempting to determine TSO capabilities before it had all the data it needed to make the decision. This patch fixes the problem by revisiting and reevaluating the decision after tg3_get_eeprom_hw_cfg() is called.

2011-11-27tcp: skip cwnd moderation in TCP_CA_Open in tcp_try_to_openNeal Cardwell
The problem: Senders were overriding cwnd values picked during an undo by calling tcp_moderate_cwnd() in tcp_try_to_open(). The fix: Don't moderate cwnd in tcp_try_to_open() if we're in TCP_CA_Open, since doing so is generally unnecessary and specifically would override a DSACK-based undo of a cwnd reduction made in fast recovery.

2011-11-27tcp: allow undo from reordered DSACKsNeal Cardwell
Previously, SACK-enabled connections hung around in TCP_CA_Disorder state while snd_una==high_seq, just waiting to accumulate DSACKs and hopefully undo a cwnd reduction. This could and did lead to the following unfortunate scenario: if some incoming ACKs advance snd_una beyond high_seq then we were setting undo_marker to 0 and moving to TCP_CA_Open, so if (due to reordering in the ACK return path) we shortly thereafter received a DSACK then we were no longer able to undo the cwnd reduction. The change: Simplify the congestion avoidance state machine by removing the behavior where SACK-enabled connections hung around in the TCP_CA_Disorder state just waiting for DSACKs. Instead, when snd_una advances to high_seq or beyond we typically move to TCP_CA_Open immediately and allow an undo in either TCP_CA_Open or TCP_CA_Disorder if we later receive enough DSACKs.

2011-11-27tcp: use SACKs and DSACKs that arrive on ACKs below snd_unaNeal Cardwell
The bug: When the ACK field is below snd_una (which can happen when ACKs are reordered), senders ignored DSACKs (preventing undo) and did not call tcp_fastretrans_alert, so they did not increment prr_delivered to reflect newly-SACKed sequence ranges, and did not call tcp_xmit_retransmit_queue, thus passing up chances to send out more retransmitted and new packets based on any newly-SACKed packets. The change: When the ACK field is below snd_una (the "old_ack" goto label), call tcp_fastretrans_alert to allow undo based on any newly-arrived DSACKs and try to send out more packets based on newly-SACKed packets.
