compat-wireless: clarify usage of linux-next-cherry-pick for bleeding edge

Bleeding edge releaseas are already using linux-next so the
linux-next-cherry-pick directory will be empty for those releases.
The linux-next-cherry-pick is more of a helper for stable RC
releases, once we start making releases from the linux-2.6-allstable
git tree.

compat-wireless: add new set of pending patches for 2010-05-25

This just adds three patches by Felix posted today. To generate
these and merge these back into this tree though I am using
a very crude technique though:

I cherry pick patches from the mailing lists, I then git am
them onto a local wireless-testing tree, then I

git format-patch -o compat-pending-05-25 origin..pending-sha1sum

Then I git rm linux-next-pending/*.patch and add the new series.
This is a bit sloppy, I admit it but it works well for how I am
managing it. If you need a patch sucked into this series let me
know and I'll go ahead and merge it as well. For now I am just
taking in things I see as important for ath9k, mac80211 and
cfg80211. If you want to consider your drivers just ask in the
linux-wireless / linux-bluetooth list (cc'ing me or something)
annotating the patch for me to be picked up. At least lets try
it for now this way and see it how it goes. If you think of
something better let me know.

These pending patches are applied with the -p option of
./scripts/admin-update.sh -p

compat-wireless: add linux-next-pending, crap patch dirs and nagometer

Sometimes you have no other option but to carry around patches.
This can happen for a variety of reasons. Ultimately testing of code
cannot happen on the kernel maintainer's clock but on your own.

This expands the idea of the linux-next-cherry-pick patch directory
on compat-wireless to also allow for patches to be merged which are
posted to some mailing list but pending merge due to some reasons
(merge window is a good example). It also adds a crap patch directory
for those really nasty situations you can run into where you have
no other option but to give someone a release with some delta even
if the patch is not yet posted anywhere.

The focus should always be upstream though so to avoid these
situations we will also provide code metrics to indicate to
the package maintainer how much code came from each directory,
including the backport code to support older kernel releases.

11 years agoBackport multiqueue support for kernels < 2.6.27
Luis R. Rodriguez [Wed, 17 Feb 2010 00:30:29 +0000 (16:30 -0800)]
Backport multiqueue support for kernels < 2.6.27

The 2.6.23 kernel added some initial multiqueue support.
That release relied on the on the notion of struct
net_device_subqueue attached to the netdevice struct
as an array. The 2.6.27 renamed these to struct netdev_queue,
and enhanced MQ support by providing locks separately onto
each queue. MQ support on 2.6.27 also extended each netdev
to be able to assign a select_queue callback to be used by
core networking for prior to pushing the skb out to the device
driver so that queue selection can be dealt with and
customized internally on the driver.

For kernels 2.6.23..2.6.26 then we backport MQ support by
using the equivalent calls on the struct netdev_queue to
the struct net_device_subqueue. The performance penalty
here is just that all these queues share a common lock
so stateful operations on one queue would imply a delay
on other queues.

For older kernels than 2.6.23 we can only stop all the
queues then and wake them up only if no other queue had
been stopped previously. This means for kernels older
than 2.6.23 there is a performance penalty and congestion
on one queue would imply propagating the same congestion
impact on all the other queues.

The select_queue callback was only added as of 2.6.27 via
commit eae792b7 so for kernels older than 2.6.23 and up
to 2.6.27 we must ensure we do the selection of the queue
once the core networking calls mac80211's dev_hard_start_xmit()
(ndo_start_xmit() callback on newer kernels).

This patch then consists of three parts:

  1) Addresses the lack of select_queue on older kernels than 2.6.27
  2) Extends the backport of net_device_ops for select_queue for kernels >= 2.6.27
  3) Backporting wake/stop queue for older kernels:
        - Handle with net_device_subqueue for >= 2.6.23
        - Treat each queue operation as an aggregate for all queues

Monitor interfaces have their own select_queue -- monitor interfaces
are used for injecting frames so they have their own respective queue
handling, but mac80211 just always sends management frames on VO
queue by using skb_set_queue_mapping(skb, 0) through ieee80211_tx_skb()
