Merge branch 'nfp-mtu-buffer-reconfig'
Jakub Kicinski says: ==================== MTU/buffer reconfig changes I re-discussed MPLS/MTU internally, dropped it from the patch 1, re-tested everything, found out I forgot about debugfs pointers, fixed that as well. v5: - don't reserve space in RX buffers for MPLS label stack (patch 1); - fix debugfs pointers to ring structures (patch 5). v4: - cut down on unrelated patches; - don't "close" the device on error path. --- v4 cover letter Previous series included some not entirely related patches, this one is cut down. Main issue I'm trying to solve here is that .ndo_change_mtu() in nfpvf driver is doing full close/open to reallocate buffers - which if open fails can result in device being basically closed even though the interface is started. As suggested by you I try to move towards a paradigm where the resources are allocated first and the MTU change is only done once I'm certain (almost) nothing can fail. Almost because I need to communicate with FW and that can always time out. Patch 1 fixes small issue. Next 10 patches reorganize things so that I can easily allocate new rings and sets of buffers while the device is running. Patches 13 and 15 reshape the .ndo_change_mtu() and ethtool's ring-resize operation into desired form. ==================== Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <email@example.com>
