2010-02-27Staging: Octeon Ethernet: Convert to NAPI.David Daney1-3/+22
Convert the driver to be a reasonably well behaved NAPI citizen. There is one NAPI instance per CPU shared between all input ports. As receive backlog increases, NAPI is scheduled on additional CPUs. Receive buffer refill code factored out so it can also be called from the periodic timer. This is needed to recover from temporary buffer starvation conditions.

2009-06-17Staging: Add octeon-ethernet driver files.David Daney1-0/+33
The octeon-ethernet driver supports the sgmii, rgmii, spi, and xaui ports present on the Cavium OCTEON family of SOCs. These SOCs are multi-core mips64 processors with existing support over in arch/mips. The driver files can be categorized into three basic groups: 1) Register definitions, these are named cvmx-*-defs.h 2) Main driver code, these have names that don't start cvmx-. 3) Interface specific functions and other utility code, names starting with cvmx- Signed-off-by: David Daney <ddaney@caviumnetworks.com> Signed-off-by: Ralf Baechle <ralf@linux-mips.org>
