Subject: [ofa-general] [PATCH v2 00/13] QLogic VNIC Driver
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.drivers.openib
Date: Monday 19th May 2008 10:31:23 UTC (over 9 years ago)
Roland,

This is the second round of QLogic Virtual NIC driver patch series for
submission
to 2.6.27 kernel. The series has been tested against your for-2.6.27
branch.

Based on comments received on first series of patches, following fixes are
introduced in this series:

        -  Removal of IB cache implementation for QLogic VNIC ULP.
        -  netdev->priv structure allocation through alloc_netdev and use
of
           netdev_priv() to access the same.
        -  Implementation of spinlock to protect potential
vnic->current_path
           race conditions.
        -  Removed the use of "vnic->xmit_started" variable.
        -  vnic_multicast.c coding style and lock fixes.
        -  Use of "time_after" macro for jiffies comparison.
        -  vnic_npevent_str has been moved to vnic_main.c to avoid its
           inclusion every time along with vnic_main.h
        -  Use of kernel "is_power_of_2" function in place of driver's own.
        -  Global "recv_ref" variable has been renamed to "vnic_recv_ref".

I have signed-off all patches in the series. The sparse endianness checking
for the driver did not give any warnings and checkpatch.pl have few
warnings
indicating lines slightly longer than 80 columns.

Background:
As mentioned in the first version of patch series, this series adds QLogic
Virtual NIC (VNIC) driver which works in conjunction with the the QLogic
Ethernet Virtual I/O Controller (EVIC) hardware. The VNIC driver along with
the
QLogic EVIC's two 10 Gigabit ethernet ports, enables Infiniband clusters to
connect to Ethernet networks. This driver also works with the earlier
version of
the I/O Controller, the VEx.

The QLogic VNIC driver creates virtual ethernet interfaces and tunnels the
Ethernet data to/from the EVIC over Infiniband using an Infiniband reliable
connection.
