Merge branch 'flower-offload'
Amir Vadai says: ==================== cls_flower hardware offload support Please see changes from V2 at the bottom. This patchset introduces cls_flower hardware offload support over ConnectX-4 driver, more hardware vendors are welcome to use it too. This patchset is based on John's infrastructure for tc offloading  to add hardware offload support to the flower filter. It also extends the support to an additional tc action - skbedit mark operation. NIC driver that was used is ConnectX-4. Feature is off by default and could be turned on using ethtool. Some commands to use this code: export TC=../iproute2/tc/tc export ETH=ens9 ethtool -K ens9 hw-tc-offload on $TC qdisc add dev $ETH ingress $TC filter add dev $ETH protocol ip prio 20 parent ffff: \ flower ip_proto 1 \ dst_mac 7c:fe:90:69:81:62 \ src_mac 7c:fe:90:69:81:56 \ dst_ip 220.127.116.11 \ src_ip 18.104.22.168 \ indev $ETH \ action drop $TC filter add dev $ETH protocol ip prio 30 parent ffff: \ flower ip_proto 6 \ indev $ETH \ action skbedit mark 0x1234 $TC filter add dev $ETH protocol ip prio 10 parent ffff: \ handle 0x1234 fw action pass The code was tested and applied on top of commit 3ebeac1d ("Merge branch 'cxgb4-next'") Changes from V2: - patch 1/10 ("net/flower: Introduce hardware offload support") - Remove unused variable [Dave] - Don't fail command when HW can't offload filter [John] - patch 3/10 ("net/sched: Macro instead of CONFIG_NET_CLS_ACT ifdef") - Mention in changelog that struct tc_action is now exposed out of the ifdef. - patch 4/10 ("net/act_skbedit: Utility functions for mark action") - Document clearly that is_tcf_skbedit_mark() is returning true if and only if the only action is mark [Dave] - patch 8/10 ("net/mlx5e: Introduce tc offload support") - make mlx5e_tc_add_flow() static Changes from V1: - patch 3/10 ("net/sched: Macro instead of CONFIG_NET_CLS_ACT ifdef") - fixed return value of tc_no_actions Changes from V0: - Use tc_no_actions and tc_for_each_action instead of ifdef CONFIG_NET_CLS_ACT - Replace ENOTSUPP (and some EINVAL) with EOPNOTSUPP - Name the flower command enum - fl_hw_destroy_filter() to return void - nobody uses the return value - mlx5e_tc_init() and mlx5e_tc_cleanup() to be called from the right places. - When adding HW rule fails - fail the command - Rules are added to be processed both by HW and SW unless SKIP_HW is given - Adding patch 6/10 ("net/mlx5e: Relax ndo_setup_tc handle restriction") Main changes from the RFC : - API - Using ndo_setup_tc() instead of switchdev - act_skbedit, act_gact - Actions are not serialized to NIC driver, instead using access functions. - cls_flower - prevent double classification by software by not adding successfuly offloaded filters to the hashtable - Fixed some bugs in original RFC with rule delete - mlx5 - Adding flow table to kernel namespace instead of a new namespace - s/offload/tc/ in many places - no need for a special kconfig since switchdev is not used ==================== Signed-off-by: David S.
