Subject[PATCH 4.14 081/146] ip6_gre: fix device features for ioctl setup
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Alexey Kodanev <alexey.kodanev@oracle.com>


[ Upstream commit e5a9336adb317db55eb3fe8200856096f3c71109 ]

When ip6gre is created using ioctl, its features, such as
scatter-gather, GSO and tx-checksumming will be turned off:

# ip -f inet6 tunnel add gre6 mode ip6gre remote fd00::1
# ethtool -k gre6 (truncated output)
tx-checksumming: off
scatter-gather: off
tcp-segmentation-offload: off
generic-segmentation-offload: off [requested on]

But when netlink is used, they will be enabled:
# ip link add gre6 type ip6gre remote fd00::1
# ethtool -k gre6 (truncated output)
tx-checksumming: on
scatter-gather: on
tcp-segmentation-offload: on
generic-segmentation-offload: on

This results in a loss of performance when gre6 is created via ioctl.
The issue was found with LTP/gre tests.

Fix it by moving the setup of device features to a separate function
and invoke it with ndo_init callback because both netlink and ioctl
will eventually call it via register_netdevice():

register_netdevice()
- ndo_init() callback -> ip6gre_tunnel_init() or ip6gre_tap_init()
- ip6gre_tunnel_init_common()
- ip6gre_tnl_init_features()

The moved code also contains two minor style fixes:
* removed needless tab from GRE6_FEATURES on NETIF_F_HIGHDMA line.
* fixed the issue reported by checkpatch: "Unnecessary parentheses around
'nt->encap.type == TUNNEL_ENCAP_NONE'"

Fixes: ac4eb009e477 ("ip6gre: Add support for basic offloads offloads excluding GSO")
