Subject: [net-next rfc V2 0/8] Multiqueue API for macvtap
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Friday 31st May 2013 09:53:17 UTC (over 3 years ago)
Hi all:

This series implements a v2 of fully tuntap compatiable API which could be
used
by userspace to manage multiple macvtap queues. The main parts is to add
TUNSETQUEUE ioctl support for macvtap.

Patch 1 - 4 was some tuntap compatibility and misc cleanups.
Patch 5 removes the linear search in macvtap by reshuffling the macvtaps
array
each time a queue is removed. After this, we could store both enabled and
disabled queues in the same array without introducing extra data structure.
Patch 6 let TUNSETIFF can create multiqueue device, nothing but some check
were added.
Patch 7 implement TUNSETQUEUE ioctl
Patch 8 reports IFF_MULTI_QUEUE to userspace to notify the userspace that
the
multiqueue API is completed.

Flow caches implememtation were missed in this version, since I am doing
rework on the tuntap flow caches. Have some some stress test with both
netperf
and pktgen.

Please review, thanks.

Changes from V1:
- Drop the patch of "return -EBADFD when TUNGETIFF fails" to preserve
backward
  compatibility
- Add a small patch of optimizing macvtap_do_read() (see patch 1/8)
- Use different functions to do tap enabling and creating
- Use different functions to do tap disabling and closing
- Remove the emtpy line in patch 6/8
- Add a line in patch 3/8
- Add a comment to explain the checking when doing TUNSETIFF with
  IFF_MULTI_QUEUE
- Add comments to explian the second swapping when moving taps between
disabled
  areas and enabled areas.
- Fix the commit log of patch 7/8 ( v1 says the linked list were used which
is
  wrong )
- Other minor bug fixes
