SubjectRe: [PATCH RFC v5 net-next 2/6] virtio_ring: try to disable event index callbacks in virtqueue_disable_cb()
Date
Jason Wang <jasowang@redhat.com> writes:
> Currently, we do nothing to prevent the callbacks in
> virtqueue_disable_cb() when event index is used. This may cause
> spurious interrupts which may damage the performance. This patch tries
> to publish avail event as the used even to prevent the callbacks.
