RHEL6.5 kernel is based on 2.6.32. But there are two changing
from 2.6.35:
1. socket struct is changed
It wrappered previous wait_queue_head_t of socket to
struct socket_wq. So for the kernel older than 2.6.35, we should
directly use socket->wait instead.

2. new function sk_sleep()
This function is implemented from 2.6.35 to obtain wait queue
from struct sock. This patch adds a macro in kni/compat.h
to be compatible with older kernels.

Patch is tested in RHEL6.5 and RHEL7.0 with:
CONFIG_RTE_LIBRTE_KNI=y
CONFIG_RTE_KNI_KO_DEBUG=y
CONFIG_RTE_KNI_VHOST=y
CONFIG_RTE_KNI_VHOST_MAX_CACHE_SIZE=1024
CONFIG_RTE_KNI_VHOST_VNET_HDR_EN=y
CONFIG_RTE_KNI_VHOST_DEBUG_RX=y
CONFIG_RTE_KNI_VHOST_DEBUG_TX=y

I don't understand the relation between RHEL-6.5 and the kernel 2.6.35.
The patch seems not related to RHEL at all.
Please start your explanations by describing what is the problem
you want to solve.

Thanks

Hi Thomas,

This patch is working for resolving the problem I found on RHEL6.5:
http://dpdk.org/ml/archives/dev/2014-December/009827.html

Because the root cause is socket struct change from 2.6.35, so this
patch also fits for all kernels older than 2.6.35.

Sorry for the ambiguous description, I think the title should be:
"kni: more compatibility for kernel older than 2.6.35"

Regards,
Jincheng Miao

Applied with title "kni: fix build with kernel < 2.6.35 and vhost debug enabled"
and error log.

Thanks
