netfilter: xtables: stackptr should be percpu
commit f3c5c1bfd4 (netfilter: xtables: make ip_tables reentrant) introduced a performance regression, because stackptr array is shared by all cpus, adding cache line ping pongs. (16 cpus share a 64 bytes cache line) Fix this using alloc_percpu() Signed-off-by: Eric Dumazet <eric.dumazet@gmail.com> Acked-By: Jan Engelhardt <jengelh@medozas.de> Signed-off-by: Patrick McHardy <kaber@trash.net>
