Subject[NET PATCH 0/9] ZC/L4RO enhancements to alacrityvm::vbus-enet driver
Date
The following series applies to the "linux-next" branch in the
alacrityvm tree:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/ghaskins/alacrityvm/linux-2.6.git

These patches add support for zero-copy, and reassembly-offloading to the
venet driver. This means we can transmit a guest GSO packet directly into
the host hardware, and receive fully reassembled LRO frames without
artificially segmenting them.

Unofficial testing against a ZC/L4RO capable backend show that we are
supporting about 6.6Gb/s in throughput (vs 7.3Gb/s for native) which is
up from the prior result of 5.7Gb/s without affecting our latency numbers.
I will officially re-run my tests and update the graphs asap.

Kind Regards,
-Greg
