Should we then be using min(tx_per_ev, EFX_MAX_TXQ_PER_CHANNEL) in the
And on line 184 probably we need to set efx->xdp_tx_per_channel to the
same thing, rather than blindly to EFX_MAX_TXQ_PER_CHANNEL as at
present — I suspect the issue you mention in patch #2 stemmed from
Note that if we are in fact hitting this limitation (i.e. if
tx_per_ev > EFX_MAX_TXQ_PER_CHANNEL), we could readily increase
EFX_MAX_TXQ_PER_CHANNEL at the cost of a little host memory, enabling
us to make more efficient use of our EVQs and thus retain XDP TX
support up to a higher number of CPUs.
