Subject[PATCH 4.11 16/84] net/mlx5e: Fix wrong indications in DIM due to counter wraparound
Date
4.11-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Tal Gilboa <talgi@mellanox.com>


[ Upstream commit 53acd76ce571e3b71f9205f2d49ab285a9f1aad8 ]

DIM (Dynamically-tuned Interrupt Moderation) is a mechanism designed for
changing the channel interrupt moderation values in order to reduce CPU
overhead for all traffic types.
Each iteration of the algorithm, DIM calculates the difference in
throughput, packet rate and interrupt rate from last iteration in order
to make a decision. DIM relies on counters for each metric. When these
counters get to their type's max value they wraparound. In this case
the delta between 'end' and 'start' samples is negative and when
translated to unsigned integers - very high. This results in a false
indication to the algorithm and might result in a wrong decision.

The fix calculates the 'distance' between 'end' and 'start' samples in a
cyclic way around the relevant type's max value. It can also be viewed as
an absolute value around the type's max value instead of around 0.

Testing show higher stability in DIM profile selection and no wraparound
issues.
