Jason Wang - July 25, 2013, 5 a.m.
Inspired by commit f09e2249c4f5c7c13261ec73f5a7807076af0c8e (macvtap: restore
vlan header on user read). This patch adds hardware vlan tx support for
tuntap. This is done by copying vlan header directly into userspace in
tun_put_user() instead of doing it through __vlan_put_tag() in
dev_hard_start_xmit(). This eliminates one unnecessary memmove() in
vlan_insert_tag() for 802.1ad and 802.1q traffic.

pktgen test shows about 20% improvement for 802.1q traffic:

Before:
  662149pps 317Mb/sec (317831520bps) errors: 0
After:
  801033pps 384Mb/sec (384495840bps) errors: 0
