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 send-side cpu utiliziation regression.David S. Miller
Only put user data purely to pages when doing TSO. The extra page allocations cause two problems: 1) Add the overhead of the page allocations themselves. 2) Make us do small user copies when we get to the end of the TCP socket cache page. It is still beneficial to purely use pages for TSO, so we will do it for that case. Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2005-07-05[TCP]: Simplify SKB data portion allocation with NETIF_F_SG.David S. Miller
The ideal and most optimal layout for an SKB when doing scatter-gather is to put all the headers at skb->data, and all the user data in the page array. This makes SKB splitting and combining extremely simple, especially before a packet goes onto the wire the first time. So, when sk_stream_alloc_pskb() is given a zero size, make sure there is no skb_tailroom(). This is achieved by applying SKB_DATA_ALIGN() to the header length used here. Next, make select_size() in TCP output segmentation use a length of zero when NETIF_F_SG is true on the outgoing interface. Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
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[TCP]: Fix sysctl_tcp_low_latencyDavid S. Miller
When enabled, this should disable UCOPY prequeue'ing altogether, but it does not due to a missing test. Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2005-06-18[NET] rename struct tcp_listen_opt to struct listen_sockArnaldo Carvalho de Melo

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.

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!
