2015-06-01net: Add priority to packet_offload objects.David S. Miller1-0/+2
When we scan a packet for GRO processing, we want to see the most common packet types in the front of the offload_base list. So add a priority field so we can handle this properly. IPv4/IPv6 get the highest priority with the implicit zero priority field. Next comes ethernet with a priority of 10, and then we have the MPLS types with a priority of 15.

They are all either written once or extremly rarely (e.g. from init code), so we can move them to the .data..read_mostly section. Signed-off-by: Daniel Borkmann <dborkman@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>

MPLS and Tunnel GSO does not work together. Reject packet which request such GSO. Fixes: 0d89d2035f ("MPLS: Add limited GSO support"). Signed-off-by: Pravin B Shelar <pshelar@nicira.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2014-11-05net: Remove MPLS GSO feature.Pravin B Shelar1-2/+1
Device can export MPLS GSO support in dev->mpls_features same way it export vlan features in dev->vlan_features. So it is safe to remove NETIF_F_GSO_MPLS redundant flag. Signed-off-by: Pravin B Shelar <pshelar@nicira.com>

2014-10-20net: gso: use feature flag argument in all protocol gso handlersFlorian Westphal1-1/+1
skb_gso_segment() has a 'features' argument representing offload features available to the output path. A few handlers, e.g. GRE, instead re-fetch the features of skb->dev and use those instead of the provided ones when handing encapsulation/tunnels. Depending on dev->hw_enc_features of the output device skb_gso_segment() can then return NULL even when the caller has disabled all GSO feature bits, as segmentation of inner header thinks device will take care of segmentation. This e.g. affects the tbf scheduler, which will silently drop GRE-encap GSO skbs that did not fit the remaining token quota as the segmentation does not work when device supports corresponding hw offload capabilities.

2014-09-26net: Remove gso_send_check as an offload callbackTom Herbert1-7/+0
The send_check logic was only interesting in cases of TCP offload and UDP UFO where the checksum needed to be initialized to the pseudo header checksum. Now we've moved that logic into the related gso_segment functions so gso_send_check is no longer needed. Signed-off-by: Tom Herbert <therbert@google.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

2014-06-04gre: Call gso_make_checksumTom Herbert1-0/+1
Call gso_make_checksum. This should have the benefit of using a checksum that may have been previously computed for the packet. This also adds NETIF_F_GSO_GRE_CSUM to differentiate devices that offload GRE GSO with and without the GRE checksum offloaed. Signed-off-by: Tom Herbert <therbert@google.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

2013-05-27MPLS: Add limited GSO supportSimon Horman1-0/+108
In the case where a non-MPLS packet is received and an MPLS stack is added it may well be the case that the original skb is GSO but the NIC used for transmit does not support GSO of MPLS packets. The aim of this code is to provide GSO in software for MPLS packets whose skbs are GSO. SKB Usage: When an implementation adds an MPLS stack to a non-MPLS packet it should do the following to skb metadata: * Set skb->inner_protocol to the old non-MPLS ethertype of the packet. skb->inner_protocol is added by this patch. * Set skb->protocol to the new MPLS ethertype of the packet. * Set skb->network_header to correspond to the end of the L3 header, including the MPLS label stack. I have posted a patch, "[PATCH v3.29] datapath: Add basic MPLS support to kernel" which adds MPLS support to the kernel datapath of Open vSwtich. That patch sets the above requirements in datapath/actions.c:push_mpls() and was used to exercise this code. The datapath patch is against the Open vSwtich tree but it is intended that it be added to the Open vSwtich code present in the mainline Linux kernel at some point. Features: I believe that the approach that I have taken is at least partially consistent with the handling of other protocols. Jesse, I understand that you have some ideas here. I am more than happy to change my implementation. This patch adds dev->mpls_features which may be used by devices to advertise features supported for MPLS packets. A new NETIF_F_MPLS_GSO feature is added for devices which support hardware MPLS GSO offload. Currently no devices support this and MPLS GSO always falls back to software. Alternate Implementation: One possible alternate implementation is to teach netif_skb_features() and skb_network_protocol() about MPLS, in a similar way to their understanding of VLANs. I believe this would avoid the need for net/mpls/mpls_gso.c and in particular the calls to __skb_push() and __skb_push() in mpls_gso_segment(). I have decided on the implementation in this patch as it should not introduce any overhead in the case where mpls_gso is not compiled into the kernel or inserted as a module. MPLS GSO suggested by Jesse Gross. Based in part on "v4 GRE: Add TCP segmentation offload for GRE" by Pravin B Shelar.
