* macvtap: Implement multiqueue for macvtap driverKrishna Kumar2010-08-161-1/+8
| | | | | | | | | Implement multiqueue facility for macvtap driver. The idea is that a macvtap device can be opened multiple times and the fd's can be used to register eg, as backend for vhost. Signed-off-by: Krishna Kumar <krkumar2@in.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>

| * macvtap: Limit packet queue lengthHerbert Xu2010-07-221-0/+2
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Mark Wagner reported OOM symptoms when sending UDP traffic over a macvtap link to a kvm receiver. This appears to be caused by the fact that macvtap packet queues are unlimited in length. This means that if the receiver can't keep up with the rate of flow, then we will hit OOM. Of course it gets worse if the OOM killer then decides to kill the receiver. This patch imposes a cap on the packet queue length, in the same way as the tuntap driver, using the device TX queue length. Please note that macvtap currently has no way of giving congestion notification, that means the software device TX queue cannot be used and packets will always be dropped once the macvtap driver queue fills up. This shouldn't be a great problem for the scenario where macvtap is used to feed a kvm receiver, as the traffic is most likely external in origin so congestion notification can't be applied anyway. Of course, if anybody decides to complain about guest-to-guest UDP packet loss down the track, then we may have to revisit this. Incidentally, this patch also fixes a real memory leak when macvtap_get_queue fails. Chris Wright noticed that for this patch to work, we need a non-zero TX queue length. This patch includes his work to change the default macvtap TX queue length to 500.

* | net: replace hooks in __netif_receive_skb V5Jiri Pirko2010-06-021-4/+0
|/ | | | | | | | | | | | | | What this patch does is it removes two receive frame hooks (for bridge and for macvlan) from __netif_receive_skb. These are replaced them with a single hook for both. It only supports one hook per device because it makes no sense to do bridging and macvlan on the same device. Then a network driver (of virtual netdev like macvlan or bridge) can register an rx_handler for needed net device.

* net: adjust handle_macvlan to pass port struct to hookJiri Pirko2010-05-151-1/+2
| | | | | | | | | | Now there's null check here and also again in the hook. Looking at bridge bits which are simmilar, port structure is rcu_dereferenced right away in handle_bridge and passed to hook. Looks nicer.

* net/macvtap: add vhost supportArnd Bergmann2010-02-181-0/+13
| | | | | | | | | | | | This adds support for passing a macvtap file descriptor into vhost-net, much like we already do for tun/tap. Most of the new code is taken from the respective patch in the tun driver and may get consolidated in the future.

* percpu: add __percpu sparse annotations to net driversTejun Heo2010-02-161-1/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | Add __percpu sparse annotations to net drivers. These annotations are to make sparse consider percpu variables to be in a different address space and warn if accessed without going through percpu accessors. This patch doesn't affect normal builds.

* net: macvtap driverArnd Bergmann2010-02-031-0/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | In order to use macvlan with qemu and other tools that require a tap file descriptor, the macvtap driver adds a small backend with a character device with the same interface as the tun driver, with a minimum set of features. Macvtap interfaces are created in the same way as macvlan interfaces using ip link, but the netif is just used as a handle for configuration and accounting, while the data goes through the chardev. Each macvtap interface has its own character device, simplifying permission management significantly over the generic tun/tap driver.

* macvlan: allow multiple driver backendsArnd Bergmann2010-02-031-0/+70
| | | | | | | | | | | This makes it possible to hook into the macvlan driver from another kernel module. In particular, the goal is to extend it with the macvtap backend that provides a tun/tap compatible interface directly on the macvlan device.
