SubjectRe: [PATCH RFC v5 net-next 4/6] virtio-net: add basic interrupt coalescing support
Date

The problem is that there's nothing network specific about interrupt
coalescing. I can see other devices wanting exactly the same thing,
which means we'd deprecate this in the next virtio standard.

I think the right answer is to extend like we did with
vring_used_event(), eg:

1) Add a new feature VIRTIO_F_RING_COALESCE.
2) Add another a 32-bit field after vring_used_event(), eg:
#define vring_used_delay(vr) (*(u32 *)((vr)->avail->ring[(vr)->num + 2]))

This loses the ability to coalesce by number of frames, but we can still
do number of sg entries, as we do now with used_event, and we could
change virtqueue_enable_cb_delayed() to take a precise number if we
wanted.

My feeling is that this should be a v1.0-only feature though
(eg. feature bit 33).

Cheers,
Rusty.
