Subject[PATCH v2 00/50] wilc1000: rework tx path to use sk_buffs throughout
Date
OK, so I'm nervous about such a large patch series, but it took a lot
of work to break things down into atomic changes. This should be it
for the transmit path as far as I'm concerned.

- v2:
- Fix 64-bit architecture compile breakage found by
kernel build daemon.
- Fix kernel-doc issues.
- All patches compie with "make W=1" now and pass scripts/checkpatch.pl
- Expand series to clean up some locking issues.
- Expand series to support zero-copy tx transfers for SPI.
- Rebase to latest wireless-drivers-next

Rework tx path to use sk_buffs throughout and optionally provide
zero-copy transmit.

Based on the earlier discussion (RFC: wilc1000: refactor TX path to
use sk_buff queue), here is the full patch series to clean up and
simplify the TX path.

The biggest patch is 0016, which is the one actually switching the
queue data type, but I worked hard to minimize it to only direct
changes due to the type changes.

There is no dramatic performance difference due to this patch. I'd
expect the new code to be slightly faster, but my WLAN
test-environment is not sufficiently controlled to be sure of that.

original iperf3 performance (duration 120 seconds):

TX [Mbps] RX [Mbps]
PSM off: 14.8 18.9
PSM on: 10.5 17.1

iperf3 performance with this patch-series applied:

TX [Mbps] RX [Mbps]
PSM off: 16.0 19.9
PSM on: 11.7 18.0

(PSM == power-save-mode; controlled by iw dev wlan0 set power_save on/off)
