Commit Message

Alvin Zhang Aug. 31, 2021, 9:52 a.m. UTC
This patch defines new RSS offload types for IPv4 and
L4(TCP/UDP/SCTP) checksum, which are required when users want
to distribute packets based on the IPv4 or L4 checksum field.

For example "flow create 0 ingress pattern eth / ipv4 / end
actions rss types ipv4-chksum end queues end / end", this flow
causes all matching packets to be distributed to queues on
basis of IPv4 checksum.

As I get you are listing them here to say the 'ETH_RSS_L4_CHKSUM' replaces
possible usage of above list, but my concern is it may confuse people as those
macros exists (or did exist in the past), so what do you think to remove them?


And just to confirm, we can't use this flag, 'ETH_RSS_L4_CHKSUM' anymore with
'rte_eth_rss_conf.rss_hf', right? Since it will be missing some context for it.
Which means some old APIs (and configuration) won't support this new offload,
but only rte_flow will support it.
If above is correct should it be highlighted in above comment?

Can we convert this question to a description just to be a little more formal?

      =======================================================
 
+* **Add new RSS offload types for IPv4/L4 checksum in RSS flow.**
+
+  Add macros ETH_RSS_IPV4_CHKSUM and ETH_RSS_L4_CHKSUM, now IPv4 and
+  TCP/UDP/SCTP header checksum field can be used as input set for RSS.

+/**
+ * The ETH_RSS_L4_CHKSUM generally refers to a type of checksum field for
+ * any L4 header, such as TCP, UDP and SCTP. It is similar to ETH_RSS_PORT,
+ * it does not specify the type of L4 header.
+ * We use this macro to replace below macro for constricting the use of RSS
+ * offload bits:
+ * ETH_RSS_IPV4_TCP_CHKSUM
+ * ETH_RSS_IPV4_UDP_CHKSUM
+ * ETH_RSS_IPV4_SCTP_CHKSUM
+ * ETH_RSS_IPV6_TCP_CHKSUM
+ * ETH_RSS_IPV6_UDP_CHKSUM
+ * ETH_RSS_IPV6_SCTP_CHKSUM
+ *
+ * Then how to use this macro? We can use it in RSS flow where the pattern
+ * type will specify the L4 header type, for example "flow create 0 ingress \
+ * pattern eth / ipv4 / tcp / end actions rss types l4-chksum  end queues end \
+ * / end"
+ *
+ * For the case that checksum is not used in a UDP header, it takes the
+ * reserved value 0 as input for the hash function.
