Subject[PATCH 4.14 090/146] net/mlx5e: Fix features check of IPv6 traffic
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Gal Pressman <galp@mellanox.com>


[ Upstream commit 2989ad1ec03021ee6d2193c35414f1d970a243de ]

The assumption that the next header field contains the transport
protocol is wrong for IPv6 packets with extension headers.
Instead, we should look the inner-most next header field in the buffer.
This will fix TSO offload for tunnels over IPv6 with extension headers.

Performance testing: 19.25x improvement, cool!
Measuring bandwidth of 16 threads TCP traffic over IPv6 GRE tap.
CPU: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2660 v2 @ 2.20GHz
NIC: Mellanox Technologies MT28800 Family [ConnectX-5 Ex]
TSO: Enabled
Before: 4,926.24 Mbps
Now : 94,827.91 Mbps

Fixes: b3f63c3d5e2c ("net/mlx5e: Add netdev support for VXLAN tunneling")
