Ramkrishna Vepa - March 25, 2009, 8:13 a.m.
This patch implements all the driver entry point functions.
- Definition of all module loadable paramters.
- Implementation of all driver entry point functions.
- Changes from previous submission -
 - Incorporated following review comments from Ben Hutchings
	- NAPI is always enabled (no option to turn it OFF).
	- Loadable parameters
	 rx_steering_type: This loadable option is removed. 
	 ring_blocks: This loadable option is removed.
	 The driver default settings work well in most if not all cases. 
	 Another patch to configure these parameters with ethtool will be
	 released in the future.
 - LRO has been deprecated in favour of GRO - Bill Fink & Dave Miller's comment
 - Fixed sparse warnings - Reported by Andi Kleen
 - Removed unused variables

Module parameters are a method of last resort. Module parameters are
a pain for customers because they are hard to configure, and only work
on one device driver. They should not be used if anything else is available.

Therefore the following can be replaced by existing ethtool hooks
	gro	    -> ethtool_get_gro, ethtool_set_gro
        tx/rx_pause -> ethtool_get_pauseparm, ethtool_set_pauseparm

I would like to see the following added to ethtool, go ahead and propose
some additions to ethtool that do what you need for addr_learn_en and
tx_steering_type.

Not sure what exec_mode does but why not call it 'debug'

The intr_type parameter should be unnecessary, assuming the driver does
the right thing based on bus methods.  If you are worried about buggy MSIX
hardware, then please do a simulated irq to test IRQ routing.
        
Most drivers just use the NAPI weight to control the parameter you
are setting with ring_indicate_max_pkts. The weight value is changeable
at runtime with sysfs.

Ramkrishna Vepa - March 25, 2009, 11:26 p.m.
Stephen,
My replies are inline -

> available.
[Ram] Agreed. The reason we have some of these options is due to
customer feedback who want the interface to come up on a boot with a
configuration that is different from the driver default. This may be a
feature that we could add to ethtool, by giving an option to change
driver configurations and persist over a boot.

>

> 	gro	    -> ethtool_get_gro, ethtool_set_gro
[Ram] Will change.
>         tx/rx_pause -> ethtool_get_pauseparm, ethtool_set_pauseparm
[Ram] We have an ethtool option already for this parameter but needed
the configuration to persist over a boot as noted above. Do you have a
suggestion to get around it?

>

[Ram] Here's a proposal/wish list. Please let me know what you feel -

addr_len_en - enable/disable/query

tx_steering - 
	Steering options - mac + vlan id, priority, multi queue
	Configuration - enable/disable/query
Note: Ideally the same scheme needs to be used for both rx & tx but to
make this work for all nics, allow the steering option to be configured
independently for each direction.

Here is a list of other ethtool hooks required for IOV management. The
sysfs interface is ideal for the management but unfortunately is not
recommended for large amounts of data.

Get number of device mac addresses supported
Get number of device vlans supported
Get device vlan id table
Get device mac address table

Get number of virtual functions
Get virtual function stats
Get number of virtual function mac addresses
Get number of virtual function vlans
Get virtual function vlan id table
Get virtual function mac address table

> 
> Not sure what exec_mode does but why not call it 'debug'
[Ram] Yes, this is a debug option. When enabled, and if an error
condition occurs, the driver will mask all interrupts, not clear the
source of the alarm and gracefully stop all io's. A diagnostic dump of
registers and stats at this point reveals very useful information.

[Ram]Will do. It was left for historical reasons in the event one may
encounter a buggy system.

[Ram] Agreed. Will make the change.

Thanks,

> > +*		1 - ENABLE
[Ram] I should have described this option better! This option is used in
the Xen and other virtual environments to learn the mac address of the
interface on guest OS and then programme the receive steering logic to
steer the received packets to respective VF. This is to avoid having the
nic in promiscuous mode for obvious reasons.
