Tx prepare method calls rte_net_intel_cksum_prepare(), which
handles tunnel packets correctly, but Tx burst path does not
take tunnel presence into account when computing the offsets.

Fixes: 58169a9c8153 ("net/virtio: support Tx checksum offload")

I have one comment to mention that from application perspective, it has
to take care that the driver does not support outer tunnel offload (this
matches the advertised capabilities). For instance, in case of a vxlan
tunnel, if the outer checksum needs to be calculated, it has to be done
by the application. In short, the application can ask to offload the
inner part if no offload is required on the outer part.

Also, since grep "PKT_TX_TUNNEL" in driver/net/ixgbe gives nothing, it
seems the ixgbe driver does not support the same offload request than
described in this patch:
  (m->ol_flags & PKT_TX_TUNNEL_MASK) == PKT_TX_TUNNEL_XXXXX
  m->outer_l2_len = outer l2 length
  m->outer_l3_len = outer l3 length
  m->l2_len = outer l4 length + tunnel len + inner l2 len
  m->l3_len = inner l3 len
  m->l4_len = inner l4 len

An alternative for doing the same (that would work with ixgbe and
current virtio) is to give:
  (m->ol_flags & PKT_TX_TUNNEL_MASK) == 0
  m->l2_len = outer lengths + tunnel len + inner l2 len
  m->l3_len = inner l3 len
  m->l4_len = inner l4 len

I think a capability may be missing to differentiate which drivers
support which mode. Or, all drivers could be fixed to support both modes
(and this would make this patch valid).

Thanks,
Olivier

Yes. It is really complicated.

Let's name below case (A).

True.

Let's name below case (B).

Possible, but I think it is a bit less friendly.
If application supports both cases with and without
outer IPv4 checksum offload, it will require more extra
steps from the application to remove tunnel mask and
collapse outer lengths into l2_len (in addition outer
IPv4 checksum calculation in SW).

Yes, something like TX_INNER_CKSUM.
Some drivers already support it, some do not.

> (and this would make this patch valid).

I disagree with the point that something is required to
make the patch valid. Before the patch the driver supports
just (B). After the patch the driver supports both (A) and (B).
It makes the driver to support more cases.

Please, note that rte_net_intel_cksum_prepare() supports
both (A) and (B) as well.

Yes, I misspoke, I wanted to say that today it is difficult for an
application to use this new mode because it does not know which driver
supports it. Fixing all drivers would solve the issue without a
capability.

A drivers/hw supporting one mode can easily support the other one (this
patch demonstrates it), so maybe it's not worth having a capability.

But yes, this is not a good reason to reject the patch.

Good point. I'll keep it in mind and try to find time to
take a look at other drivers as well.
