Subject[PATCHv2 0/4] ethtool: generalize use of ethtool_cmd_speed API
Date
Hi all,

This is the second version of a patch series aimed at making sure the
speed field of struct ethtool_cmd is accessed as a 32b integer
throughout the kernel.

Thanks to Ben for his careful review!
Below are a few comments before sending the series.

Updated. Thanks!

Right. Here is what I replied to Ben in private: I think it makes
sense to have a uniform & consistent use of the API without exception
nor assumption, even though it borrows additional useless CPU cycles
(+ cache lines probably). This comes down to trade-off between code
management and performance, for which I privileged the former because
I don't think the ethtool api is supposed to be heavily used
throughout normal kernel operation.

I left the initial changes in place.

Done. This is in the 2nd patch of the series. Any feedback welcome, I
am not entirely convinced that my additions are pertinent.

I don't think this is equivalent to dev_ethtool_get_settings(). My
understanding is that mii_ethtool_gset() (and likewise for mdio45_) is
meant to be wrapped almost transparently inside a driver's
get_settings(), so it should make the same assumptions as a normal
get_settings(). However, dev_ethtool_get_settings() is meant to be
used to _call_ some driver's get_settings(), so it should make sure
that it enforces the assumptions this driver is making.

In the end, I didn't change mii_ethtool_gset() the same way I did for
dev_ethtool_get_settings (no memset).

Updated. Thanks!

Right. I still did change it for the sake of consistency (see remark
above).

Updated. Thanks!

True. I made this a bit more elegant.

Right, but I prefer not to do this in this series.

That's definitely true. Made my changes more transparent. Thanks!

Same here.

I am not sure about this one. But I think it falls in the same
category as mii_ethtool_gset() above.

Yes, that is completely right. Updated. Thanks!

Yes, I noticed too (e1000(e)) but I think it would deserve another
set of patches.

David Decotigny (4):
ethtool: cosmetics: enforce const-ness in ethtool_cmd_speed
ethtool: Call ethtool's get/set_settings callbacks with cleaned data
ethtool: Use the full 32 bit speed range in ethtool's set_settings
ethtool: cosmetic: Use ethtool ethtool_cmd_speed API
