      [NETFILTER]: Rename skb_ip_make_writable() to skb_make_writable() · 089af26c
      Harald Welte authored
      There is nothing IPv4-specific in it.  In fact, it was already used by
      IPv6, too...  Upcoming nfnetlink_queue code will use it for any kind
      of packet.

      [NETFILTER]: reduce netfilter sk_buff enlargement · 6869c4d8
      Harald Welte authored
      As discussed at netconf'05, we're trying to save every bit in sk_buff.
      The patch below makes sk_buff 8 bytes smaller.  I did some basic
      testing on my notebook and it seems to work.
      The only real in-tree user of nfcache was IPVS, who only needs a
      single bit.  Unfortunately I couldn't find some other free bit in
      sk_buff to stuff that bit into, so I introduced a separate field for
      them.  Maybe the IPVS guys can resolve that to further save space.
      Initially I wanted to shrink pkt_type to three bits (PACKET_HOST and
      alike are only 6 values defined), but unfortunately the bluetooth code
      overloads pkt_type :(
      The conntrack-event-api (out-of-tree) uses nfcache, but Rusty just
      came up with a way how to do it without any skb fields, so it's safe
      to remove it.
      - remove all never-implemented 'nfcache' code
      - don't have ipvs code abuse 'nfcache' field. currently get's their own
        compile-conditional skb->ipvs_property field.  IPVS maintainers can
        decide to move this bit elswhere, but nfcache needs to die.
      - remove skb->nfcache field to save 4 bytes
      - move skb->nfctinfo into three unused bits to save further 4 bytes

      Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
      even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
      archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
      3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
      git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
      infrastructure for it.
      Let it rip!
