Subject"tcp: refine TSO autosizing" causes performance regression on Xen
Hi all,

I found a performance regression when running netperf -t TCP_MAERTS from
an external host to a Xen VM on ARM64: v3.19 and v4.0-rc4 running in the
virtual machine are 30% slower than v3.18.

Through bisection I found that the perf regression is caused by the
prensence of the following commit in the guest kernel:

commit 605ad7f184b60cfaacbc038aa6c55ee68dee3c89
Author: Eric Dumazet <>
Date: Sun Dec 7 12:22:18 2014 -0800

tcp: refine TSO autosizing

A simple revert would fix the issue.

Does anybody have any ideas on what could be the cause of the problem?
Suggestions on what to do to fix it?
