Subject[PATCH 5.4 020/434] net: ena: fix default tx interrupt moderation interval
Date
From: Arthur Kiyanovski <akiyano@amazon.com>

[ Upstream commit 05785adf6e570a068adf0502b61fe2b521d7f0ca ]

Current default non-adaptive tx interrupt moderation interval is 196 us.
This value is too high and might cause the tx queue to fill up.

In this commit we set the default non-adaptive tx interrupt moderation
interval to 64 us in order to:
1. Reduce the probability of the queue filling-up (when compared to the
current default value of 196 us).
2. Reduce unnecessary tx interrupt overhead (which happens if we set the
default tx interval to 0).
We determined experimentally that 64 us is an optimal value that
reduces interrupt rate by more than 20% without affecting performance.
