2005-07-05[TCP]: Move to new TSO segmenting scheme.David S. Miller
Make TSO segment transmit size decisions at send time not earlier. The basic scheme is that we try to build as large a TSO frame as possible when pulling in the user data, but the size of the TSO frame output to the card is determined at transmit time. This is guided by tp->xmit_size_goal. It is always set to a multiple of MSS and tells sendmsg/sendpage how large an SKB to try and build. Later, tcp_write_xmit() and tcp_push_one() chop up the packet if necessary and conditions warrant. These routines can also decide to "defer" in order to wait for more ACKs to arrive and thus allow larger TSO frames to be emitted. A general observation is that TSO elongates the pipe, thus requiring a larger congestion window and larger buffering especially at the sender side. Therefore, it is important that applications 1) get a large enough socket send buffer (this is accomplished by our dynamic send buffer expansion code) 2) do large enough writes.

2005-07-05[TCP]: Fix __tcp_push_pending_frames() 'nonagle' handling.David S. Miller
'nonagle' should be passed to the tcp_snd_test() function as 'TCP_NAGLE_PUSH' if we are checking an SKB not at the tail of the write_queue. This is because Nagle does not apply to such frames since we cannot possibly tack more data onto them. However, while doing this __tcp_push_pending_frames() makes all of the packets in the write_queue use this modified 'nonagle' value. Fix the bug and simplify this function by just calling tcp_write_xmit() directly if sk_send_head is non-NULL. As a result, we can now make tcp_data_snd_check() just call tcp_push_pending_frames() instead of the specialized __tcp_data_snd_check(). Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2005-07-05[TCP]: Fix redundant calculations of tcp_current_mss()David S. Miller
tcp_write_xmit() uses tcp_current_mss(), but some of it's callers, namely __tcp_push_pending_frames(), already has this value available already. While we're here, fix the "cur_mss" argument to be "unsigned int" instead of plain "unsigned". Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2005-07-05[TCP]: Kill extra cwnd validate in __tcp_push_pending_frames().David S. Miller
The tcp_cwnd_validate() function should only be invoked if we actually send some frames, yet __tcp_push_pending_frames() will always invoke it. tcp_write_xmit() does the call for us, so the call here can simply be removed. Also, tcp_write_xmit() can be marked static. Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2005-07-05[TCP]: Move __tcp_data_snd_check into tcp_output.cDavid S. Miller
It reimplements portions of tcp_snd_check(), so it we move it to tcp_output.c we can consolidate it's logic much easier in a later change. Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2005-07-05[TCP]: Move send test logic out of net/tcp.hDavid S. Miller
This just moves the code into tcp_output.c, no code logic changes are made by this patch. Using this as a baseline, we can begin to untangle the mess of comparisons for the Nagle test et al. We will also be able to reduce all of the redundant computation that occurs when outputting data packets. Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2005-07-05[TCP]: Fix quick-ack decrementing with TSO.David S. Miller
On each packet output, we call tcp_dec_quickack_mode() if the ACK flag is set. It drops tp->ack.quick until it hits zero, at which time we deflate the ATO value. When doing TSO, we are emitting multiple packets with ACK set, so we should decrement tp->ack.quick that many segments. Note that, unlike this case, tcp_enter_cwr() should not take the tcp_skb_pcount(skb) into consideration. That function, one time, readjusts tp->snd_cwnd and moves into TCP_CA_CWR state.

2005-06-23[TCP]: Allow choosing TCP congestion control via sockopt.Stephen Hemminger
Allow using setsockopt to set TCP congestion control to use on a per socket basis. Signed-off-by: Stephen Hemminger <shemminger@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2005-06-23[TCP]: Add pluggable congestion control algorithm infrastructure.Stephen Hemminger
Allow TCP to have multiple pluggable congestion control algorithms. Algorithms are defined by a set of operations and can be built in or modules. The legacy "new RENO" algorithm is used as a starting point and fallback. Signed-off-by: Stephen Hemminger <shemminger@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2005-06-18[NET]: Move sysctl_max_syn_backlog into request_sock.cDavid S. Miller

2005-06-18[NET] Generalise tcp_listen_optArnaldo Carvalho de Melo
This chunks out the accept_queue and tcp_listen_opt code and moves them to net/core/request_sock.c and include/net/request_sock.h, to make it useful for other transport protocols, DCCP being the first one to use it. Next patches will rename tcp_listen_opt to accept_sock and remove the inline tcp functions that just call a reqsk_queue_ function.

2005-06-18[NET] Rename open_request to request_sockArnaldo Carvalho de Melo
Ok, this one just renames some stuff to have a better namespace and to dissassociate it from TCP: struct open_request -> struct request_sock tcp_openreq_alloc -> reqsk_alloc tcp_openreq_free -> reqsk_free tcp_openreq_fastfree -> __reqsk_free With this most of the infrastructure closely resembles a struct sock methods subset.

2005-06-18[NET] Generalise TCP's struct open_request minisock infrastructureArnaldo Carvalho de Melo
Kept this first changeset minimal, without changing existing names to ease peer review. Basicaly tcp_openreq_alloc now receives the or_calltable, that in turn has two new members: ->slab, that replaces tcp_openreq_cachep ->obj_size, to inform the size of the openreq descendant for a specific protocol The protocol specific fields in struct open_request were moved to a class hierarchy, with the things that are common to all connection oriented PF_INET protocols in struct inet_request_sock, the TCP ones in tcp_request_sock, that is an inet_request_sock, that is an open_request. I.e. this uses the same approach used for the struct sock class hierarchy, with sk_prot indicating if the protocol wants to use the open_request infrastructure by filling in sk_prot->rsk_prot with an or_calltable. Results? Performance is improved and TCP v4 now uses only 64 bytes per open request minisock, down from 96 without this patch :-) Next changeset will rename some of the structs, fields and functions mentioned above, struct or_calltable is way unclear, better name it struct request_sock_ops, s/struct open_request/struct request_sock/g, etc. Signed-off-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@ghostprotocols.net> Signed-off-by: David S.

2005-04-24[TCP]: skb pcount with MTU discoveryDavid S. Miller
The problem is that when doing MTU discovery, the too-large segments in the write queue will be calculated as having a pcount of >1. When tcp_write_xmit() is trying to send, tcp_snd_test() fails the cwnd test when pcount > cwnd. The segments are eventually transmitted one at a time by keepalive, but this can take a long time. This patch checks if TSO is enabled when setting pcount. Signed-off-by: John Heffner <jheffner@psc.edu> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2005-04-16Linux-2.6.12-rc2v2.6.12-rc2Linus Torvalds
Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
