net: pktgen: fix pkt_size
The commit 879c7220e828 ("net: pktgen: Observe needed_headroom of the device") increased the 'pkt_overhead' field value by LL_RESERVED_SPACE. As a side effect the generated packet size, computed as: /* Eth + IPh + UDPh + mpls */ datalen = pkt_dev->cur_pkt_size - 14 - 20 - 8 - pkt_dev->pkt_overhead; is decreased by the same value. The above changed slightly the behavior of existing pktgen users, and made the procfs interface somewhat inconsistent. Fix it by restoring the previous pkt_overhead value and using LL_RESERVED_SPACE as extralen in skb allocation. Also, change pktgen_alloc_skb() to only partially reserve the headroom to allow the caller to prefetch from ll header start. v1 -> v2: - fixed some typos in the comments Fixes: 879c7220e828 ("net: pktgen: Observe needed_headroom of the device") Suggested-by: Ben Greear <greearb@candelatech.com> Signed-off-by: Paolo Abeni <pabeni@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
