Re: [Q/RFC] BPF use in broader scope

Hi all. I came to an idea of using BPF infrastructure currently used in kernel, for computing hashes selecting TX ports in team device. Since the same data (skb) are alalyzed/used as for socket filtering, BPF seems so be quite suitable for this. It would allow userspace daemon to specify various kinds of TX selection algorithms. Here are proposed things to be done: 1) introduce in-kernel api for creating sk-unattached filters (I have the patch cooked up already) 2) extend current BPF machine to allow XOR operation. Not sure if this is doable or what the best of doing this is. 3) add possibility to pass some data to the machine via pre-filling "Scratch Memory Store". I think this can be done easily moving "u32 mem[BPF_MEMWORDS];" to bpf_func caller and pass it as the second function parameter. That should not break anything. Then the computed hash can be either stored into Scratch memory or returned directly (where ordinary sk filters return len). Does this seems reasonable? Thoughts, comments?
Very interesting. I am working on a blktrace like utility for networking subsystem. It needs a trace events filter to avoid to generate too much results which user does not interesting, it seem that the generic BPF is the best choice here.So far, the "skbtrace" need to filter two kinds of objects: the skb and socket, so I think that above "Scratch Memory Store" is necessary indeed.
