Subject: Re: [PATCH] Fixed TPACKET V3 to signal poll when block is closed
 rather than every packet

From: Dan Collins <>
Date: Fri, 19 Dec 2014 16:49:25 +1300

> Make TPACKET_V3 signal poll when block is closed rather than for every
> packet. Side effect is that poll will be signaled when block retire
> timer expires which didn't previously happen. Issue was visible when
> sending packets at a very low frequency such that all blocks are retired
> before packets are received by TPACKET_V3. This caused avoidable packet
> loss. The fix ensures that the signal is sent when blocks are closed
> which covers the normal path where the block is filled as well as the
> path where the timer expires. The case where a block is filled without
> moving to the next block (ie. all blocks are full) will still cause poll
> to be signaled.
