SubjectRe: [PATCH] vhost-net: utilize PUBLISH_USED_IDX feature
From: "Michael S. Tsirkin" <>
Date: Tue, 18 May 2010 04:19:31 +0300

> With PUBLISH_USED_IDX, guest tells us which used entries
> it has consumed. This can be used to reduce the number
> of interrupts: after we write a used entry, if the guest has not yet
> consumed the previous entry, or if the guest has already consumed the
> new entry, we do not need to interrupt.
> This imporves bandwidth by 30% under some workflows.

> Rusty, Dave, this patch depends on the patch
> "virtio: put last seen used index into ring itself"
> which is currently destined at Rusty's tree.
> Rusty, if you are taking that one for 2.6.35, please
> take this one as well.
> Dave, any objections?
