      net: SO_INCOMING_CPU setsockopt() support · 70da268b
      Eric Dumazet authored
      SO_INCOMING_CPU as added in commit 2c8c56e1 was a getsockopt() command
      to fetch incoming cpu handling a particular TCP flow after accept()
      This commits adds setsockopt() support and extends SO_REUSEPORT selection
      logic : If a TCP listener or UDP socket has this option set, a packet is
      delivered to this socket only if CPU handling the packet matches the specified
      This allows to build very efficient TCP servers, using one listener per
      RX queue, as the associated TCP listener should only accept flows handled
      in softirq by the same cpu.
      This provides optimal NUMA behavior and keep cpu caches hot.
      Note that __inet_lookup_listener() still has to iterate over the list of
      all listeners. Following patch puts sk_refcnt in a different cache line
      to let this iteration hit only shared and read mostly cache lines.

      udp: fix behavior of wrong checksums · beb39db5
      Eric Dumazet authored
      We have two problems in UDP stack related to bogus checksums :
      1) We return -EAGAIN to application even if receive queue is not empty.
         This breaks applications using edge trigger epoll()
      2) Under UDP flood, we can loop forever without yielding to other
         processes, potentially hanging the host, especially on non SMP.
      This patch is an attempt to make things better.
      We might in the future add extra support for rt applications
      wanting to better control time spent doing a recv() in a hostile
      environment. For example we could validate checksums before queuing
      packets in socket receive queue.

      net: Convert LIMIT_NETDEBUG to net_dbg_ratelimited · ba7a46f1
      Joe Perches authored
      Use the more common dynamic_debug capable net_dbg_ratelimited
      and remove the LIMIT_NETDEBUG macro.
      All messages are still ratelimited.
      Some KERN_<LEVEL> uses are changed to KERN_DEBUG.
      This may have some negative impact on messages that were
      emitted at KERN_INFO that are not not enabled at all unless
      DEBUG is defined or dynamic_debug is enabled.  Even so,
      these messages are now _not_ emitted by default.
      This also eliminates the use of the net_msg_warn sysctl
      "/proc/sys/net/core/warnings".  For backward compatibility,
      the sysctl is not removed, but it has no function.  The extern
      declaration of net_msg_warn is removed from sock.h and made
      static in net/core/sysctl_net_core.c
      o Update the sysctl documentation
      o Remove the embedded uses of pr_fmt
      o Coalesce format fragments
      o Realign arguments

      net: introduce SO_INCOMING_CPU · 2c8c56e1
      Eric Dumazet authored
      Alternative to RPS/RFS is to use hardware support for multiple
      Then split a set of million of sockets into worker threads, each
      one using epoll() to manage events on its own socket pool.
      Ideally, we want one thread per RX/TX queue/cpu, but we have no way to
      know after accept() or connect() on which queue/cpu a socket is managed.
      We normally use one cpu per RX queue (IRQ smp_affinity being properly
      set), so remembering on socket structure which cpu delivered last packet
      is enough to solve the problem.
      After accept(), connect(), or even file descriptor passing around
      processes, applications can use :
       int cpu;
       socklen_t len = sizeof(cpu);
       getsockopt(fd, SOL_SOCKET, SO_INCOMING_CPU, &cpu, &len);
      And use this information to put the socket into the right silo
      for optimal performance, as all networking stack should run
      on the appropriate cpu, without need to send IPI (RPS/RFS).

      net: Add and use skb_copy_datagram_msg() helper. · 51f3d02b
      David S. Miller authored
      This encapsulates all of the skb_copy_datagram_iovec() callers
      with call argument signature "skb, offset, msghdr->msg_iov, length".
      When we move to iov_iters in the networking, the iov_iter object will
      sit in the msghdr.
      Having a helper like this means there will be less places to touch
      during that transformation.
      Based upon descriptions and patch from Al Viro.

      udp: Add support for doing checksum unnecessary conversion · 2abb7cdc
      Tom Herbert authored
      conversion in UDP tunneling path.
      In the normal UDP path, we call skb_checksum_try_convert after locating
      the UDP socket. The check is that checksum conversion is enabled for
      the socket (new flag in UDP socket) and that checksum field is
      In the UDP GRO path, we call skb_gro_checksum_try_convert after
      checksum is validated and checksum field is non-zero. Since this is
      already in GRO we assume that checksum conversion is always wanted.
