net: Add sendmmsg socket system call
This patch adds a multiple message send syscall and is the send version of the existing recvmmsg syscall. This is heavily based on the patch by Arnaldo that added recvmmsg. I wrote a microbenchmark to test the performance gains of using this new syscall: http://ozlabs.org/~anton/junkcode/sendmmsg_test.c The test was run on a ppc64 box with a 10 Gbit network card. The benchmark can send both UDP and RAW ethernet packets. 64B UDP batch pkts/sec 1 804570 2 872800 (+ 8 %) 4 916556 (+14 %) 8 939712 (+17 %) 16 952688 (+18 %) 32 956448 (+19 %) 64 964800 (+20 %) 64B raw socket batch pkts/sec 1 1201449 2 1350028 (+12 %) 4 1461416 (+22 %) 8 1513080 (+26 %) 16 1541216 (+28 %) 32 1553440 (+29 %) 64 1557888 (+30 %) We see a 20% improvement in throughput on UDP send and 30% on raw socket send.
