David Marchand May 3, 2021, 1:26 p.m. UTC
The vhost library currently configures Tx offloading (PKT_TX_*) on any
packet received from a guest virtio device which asks for some offloading.

This is problematic, as Tx offloading is something that the application
must ask for: the application needs to configure devices
to support every used offloads (ip, tcp checksumming, tso..), and the
various l2/l3/l4 lengths must be set following any processing that
happened in the application itself.

On the other hand, the received packets are not marked wrt current
packet l3/l4 checksumming info.

Copy virtio rx processing to fix those offload flags with some
differences:
- accept VIRTIO_NET_HDR_GSO_ECN and VIRTIO_NET_HDR_GSO_UDP,
- ignore anything but the VIRTIO_NET_HDR_F_NEEDS_CSUM flag (to comply with
  the virtio spec),

Some applications might rely on the current behavior, so it is left
untouched by default.
A new RTE_VHOST_USER_NET_COMPLIANT_OL_FLAGS flag is added to enable the
new behavior.

The vhost example has been updated for the new behavior: TSO is applied to
any packet marked LRO.

Fixes: 859b480d5afd ("vhost: add guest offload setting")

Changes since v2:
- introduced a new flag to keep existing behavior as the default,
- packets with unrecognised offload are passed to the application with no
  offload metadata rather than dropped,
- ignored VIRTIO_NET_HDR_F_DATA_VALID since the virtio spec states that
  the virtio driver is not allowed to use this flag when transmitting
  packets,

Changes since v1:
- updated vhost example,
- restored VIRTIO_NET_HDR_GSO_ECN and VIRTIO_NET_HDR_GSO_UDP support,
- restored log on buggy offload request,
