[PATCH 2/4 net-next] tg3: provide frags as skb head

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

From: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@xxxxxxxxxx>

This patch converts tg3 driver, one of our reference drivers, to use new
build_skb() api in frag mode.

Instead of using kmalloc() to allocate the memory block that will be
used by build_skb() as skb->head, we use a page fragment.

This is a followup of patch "net: allow skb->head to be a page fragment"

This allows GRO, TCP coalescing, and splice() to be more efficient.

Incidentally, this also removes SLUB slow path contention in kfree()
