SubjectRe: [PATCH net-next] net: ena: Add a driver for Amazon Elastic Network Adapters (ENA)

Very limited review below.

Marketing boilerplate. How much of it will still be true in 6 months ?
6 years ?

Hint: stay technical. If in doubt, make it boring. :o)

[...]
> +ENA devices allow high speed and low overhead Ethernet traffic

> +dedicated MSI-X interrupt vector per Tx/Rx queue pair, adaptive
> +interrupt moderation, and CPU cacheline optimized data placement.

How many queues exactly ?

[...]
> +Memory Allocations:
> +===================
> +DMA Coherent buffers are allocated for the following DMA rings:
> +- Tx submission ring (For regular mode; for LLQ mode it is allocated
> + using kzalloc)
> +- Tx completion ring
> +- Rx submission ring
> +- Rx completion ring
> +- Admin submission ring
> +- Admin completion ring
> +- AENQ ring

Useless documentation (implementation detail).

Nobody will maintain it when the driver changes. Please remove.

[...]

> +The driver supports an arbitrarily large MTU with a maximum that is

Please avoid advertising legacy ifconfig.

The documentation above simply duplicates the member names -> useless
visual payload.

Please replace space with tab before "=" to line things up.

struct zorg {

u32 ...;
u32 ...;

u32 ...;
u32 ...;
u32 ...;
u32 ...;

u32 ...;
u32 ...;
u32 ...;
};

-> No comment needed to figure the offset.
Comment removed => no need to check if offset starts at word 0 or word 1.

No need to "... & GENMASK" given the test above.

1. Use dma_zalloc_coherent().

2. Style
xyzab = dma_alloc_coherent(..., ..., ... ...,
...);

3. Add local variable for &queue->sq.


In a different part of the code: s/uint32_t/u32/
