Since all related queues' interrupts are turned on before epoll, we need
to turn off all the interrupts after wakeup. This patch fixes the issue
of only turning off the interrupted queues.

Hi Wang

I tested this patch on octeontx2 platform and have some queries
regarding the same:
Difference what I observed with this patch is, you are disabling
interrupts for all the queues handled by the core which woke up but
what is the advantage of doing so? 
I dont see any difference wrt octeontx2, with and without this patch in
term of power saving. Can you please explain what I am missing.

Thanks
Harman

Hi Kalra,

This patch is more about bug fix on user interrupt, no powering saving tuning.
The target scenario is, a worker core is dealing with 2 Rx queues, and it go sleep due to no traffic for some time,
and then the first queue has new traffic arrived, and wakes up this core, so this worker core is busy polling again.
The issue is that even though the core comes to polling state, the second queue will still send interrupt (if packet flushes in) to host.. This is what the core doesn't need, and unnecessary MSIX messages can cause throughput to degrade.

Best Regards,
Xiao

Hi Xiao

Thanks for the explaination, I tested the scenario as explained by you
with and without your patch. I do see a huge difference in no of interrupts
sent by other queues and it is worth avoiding these interrupts as they
have no significance. 

Thanks
Harman

Hi,
