Hi

I am sending this patch for Intel people review/test and acknowledge.

Thanks !

[PATCH net-next] ixgbe: fix stats handling

Current ixgbe stats have following problems :

- Not 64 bit safe (on 32bit arches)

- Not safe in ixgbe_clean_rx_irq() :
   All cpus dirty a common location (netdev->stats.rx_bytes &
netdev->stats.rx_packets) without proper synchronization.
   This slow down a bit multiqueue operations, and possibly miss some
updates.

Fixes :

Implement ndo_get_stats64() method to provide accurate 64bit rx|tx
bytes/packets counters, using 64bit safe infrastructure.

ixgbe_get_ethtool_stats() also use this infrastructure to provide 64bit
safe counters.

Eric,

We are seeing intermittent hangs on ia32 arch which seem to point to this patch:

Could you disassemble your ixgbe_get_stats64() function ?

Thanks

If yes, a lock/protection is needed (same for ethtool stats I guess)
