      ipv4: Properly purge netdev references on uncached routes. · caacf05e
      David S. Miller authored
      When a device is unregistered, we have to purge all of the
      references to it that may exist in the entire system.
      If a route is uncached, we currently have no way of accomplishing
      So create a global list that is scanned when a network device goes
      down.  This mirrors the logic in net/core/dst.c's dst_ifdown().

      ipv4: percpu nh_rth_output cache · d26b3a7c
      Eric Dumazet authored
      Input path is mostly run under RCU and doesnt touch dst refcnt
      But output path on forwarding or UDP workloads hits
      badly dst refcount, and we have lot of false sharing, for example
      in ipv4_mtu() when reading rt->rt_pmtu
      Using a percpu cache for nh_rth_output gives a nice performance
      increase at a small cost.
      24 udpflood test on my 24 cpu machine (dummy0 output device)
      (each process sends 1.000.000 udp frames, 24 processes are started)
      before : 5.24 s
      after : 2.06 s
      For reference, time on linux-3.5 : 6.60 s

      ipv4: Restore old dst_free() behavior. · 54764bb6
      Eric Dumazet authored
      commit 404e0a8b
       (net: ipv4: fix RCU races on dst refcounts) tried
      to solve a race but added a problem at device/fib dismantle time :
      We really want to call dst_free() as soon as possible, even if sockets
      still have dst in their cache.
      dst_release() calls in free_fib_info_rcu() are not welcomed.
      Root of the problem was that now we also cache output routes (in
      nh_rth_output), we must use call_rcu() instead of call_rcu_bh() in
      rt_free(), because output route lookups are done in process context.
      Based on feedback and initial patch from David Miller (adding another
      call_rcu_bh() call in fib, but it appears it was not the right fix)
      I left the inet_sk_rx_dst_set() helper and added __rcu attributes
      to nh_rth_output and nh_rth_input to better document what is going on in
      this code.

        window, some that have been around for a while.
        I have a short list of known problems that need to be sorted out, but
        all of them can be solved easily during the run up to 3.6-final.
