Subject[RFC PATCH net-next 00/12] XDP batching for TUN/vhost_net
Hi all:

We do not support XDP batching for TUN since it can only receive one
packet a time from vhost_net. This series tries to remove this
limitation by:

- introduce a TUN specific msg_control that can hold a pointer to an
array of XDP buffs
- try copy and build XDP buff in vhost_net
- store XDP buffs in an array and submit them once for every N packets
from vhost_net
- since TUN can only do native XDP for datacopy packet, to simplify
the logic, split datacopy out logic and only do batching for

With this series, TX PPS can improve about 34% from 2.9Mpps to
3.9Mpps when doing xdp_redirect_map between TAP and ixgbe.


Jason Wang (12):
vhost_net: introduce helper to initialize tx iov iter
vhost_net: introduce vhost_exceeds_weight()
vhost_net: introduce vhost_has_more_pkts()
vhost_net: split out datacopy logic
vhost_net: batch update used ring for datacopy TX
tuntap: enable premmption early
tuntap: simplify error handling in tun_build_skb()
tuntap: tweak on the path of non-xdp case in tun_build_skb()
tuntap: split out XDP logic
vhost_net: build xdp buff
vhost_net: passing raw xdp buff to tun
vhost_net: batch submitting XDP buffers to underlayer sockets
