Subject: [v3 Patch 1/3] netpoll: add generic support for bridge and bonding devices
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Thursday 8th April 2010 06:18:46 UTC (over 6 years ago)
V3:
Update to latest Linus' tree.
Fix deadlocks when releasing slaves of bonding devices.
Thanks to Andy.

V2:
Fix some bugs of previous version.
Remove ->netpoll_setup and ->netpoll_xmit, they are not necessary.
Don't poll all underlying devices, poll ->real_dev in struct netpoll.
Thanks to David for suggesting above.

--------->

This whole patchset is for adding netpoll support to bridge and bonding
devices. I already tested it for bridge, bonding, bridge over bonding,
and bonding over bridge. It looks fine now.

Please comment.


To make bridge and bonding support netpoll, we need to adjust
some netpoll generic code. This patch does the following things:

1) introduce two new priv_flags for struct net_device:
   IFF_IN_NETPOLL which identifies we are processing a netpoll;
   IFF_DISABLE_NETPOLL is used to disable netpoll support for a device
   at run-time;

2) introduce one new method for netdev_ops:
   ->ndo_netpoll_cleanup() is used to clean up netpoll when a device is
     removed.

3) introduce netpoll_poll_dev() which takes a struct net_device *
parameter;
   export netpoll_send_skb() and netpoll_poll_dev() which will be used
later;

4) hide a pointer to struct netpoll in struct netpoll_info, ditto.

5) introduce ->real_dev for struct netpoll.

6) introduce a new status NETDEV_BONDING_DESLAE, which is used to disable
   netconsole before releasing a slave, to avoid deadlocks.
