Subject[patch 01/21] qdio: speed up multicast traffic on full HiperSocket queue
From: Ursula Braun <ursula.braun@de.ibm.com>

If an asynchronous HiperSockets queue runs full, no further packet
can be sent. In this case the next initiative to give transmitted
skbs back to the stack is triggered only by a 10-seconds qdio timer.
This timer has been introduced for low multicast traffic scenarios
to guarantee freeing of skbs in a limited amount of time. For high
HiperSocket multicast traffic scenarios progress checking on the
outbound queue should be enforced by tasklet rescheduling.
