Subject[PATCH RFC v5 net-next 3/6] virtio_net: enable tx interrupt
Date
On newer hosts that support delayed tx interrupts,
we probably don't have much to gain from orphaning
packets early.

Note: this might degrade performance for
hosts without event idx support.
Should be addressed by the next patch.

Changes from RFCv4:
- change:
virtqueue_disable_cb(sq->vq);
napi_schedule(&sq->napi);

in skb_xmit_done() to:

if (__napi_schedule_prep(&sq->napi)) {
virtqueue_diable_cb(sq->vq);
__napi_schedule(&sq->napi);
}

to solve the race on architectures that atomic operations were not
serialized. And do solve a similar issue in virtnet_poll_tx().
- use netif_wake_subqueue() instead of netif_start_subqueue() in
free_old_xmit_skbs(), since it may be called in tx napi.
- in start_xmit(), try to enable the callback only when current skb is
the last in the list or tx has already been stopped. This avoid the
callbacks enabling in heavy load.
